Jenn & Kelvi’s Palm Valley Gardens Wedding | Ponte Vedra, FL Wedding


I cannot tell you all how excited I am to finally blog this gorgeous wedding!!!!  I’m not going to lie, this was literally the HOTTEST wedding we have ever shot.  Jacksonville had temperatures well over one hundred degrees this weekend but we didn’t let it stand in our way.  This wedding was nothing short of fabulous.  There was an abundance of love and joy as friends and family from all over the country came together to celebrate this amazing couple.  Jenn & Kelvi held their ceremony and reception on the grounds of one of Ponte Vedra’s newest wedding venues, Palm Valley Gardens.  The lush gardens and rustic features of the Palm Valley house complimented Jenn’s wedding perfectly.  The ceremony took place under a large oak tree overlooking a small pond just behind the house.  Afterward, guests enjoyed dinner and dancing under the moonlight to the accompaniment of the Mystery Band on the back patio.  It was truly a dream wedding for such a beautiful couple.  We just adore these two and love every minute we have gotten to spend with them.  They are one of those couples that come along and have such a strong love for one another that you cannot help but be affected by it.  Jenn & Kelvi we feel blessed to have been a part of your lives on such a beautiful day.

We wish you lots of love, happiness, and adventures together.

War Eagle!

Jenn’s bouquet was incredible.  We all know I adore peonies and thanks to Liz Stewart Floral Design, peonies were everywhere.  I was in floral heaven.

I’m positive that Kelvi cannot take a bad photo.  He is an absolute natural in front of the camera.

Jenn made sure her guests were all prepared for whatever Florida threw at them.  Insect repellant, fans and ice cold water bottles were at the gate as guests walked to the ceremony site.

Little known fact… I am a sucker for flowers floating in water.  Something about it just makes my heart go pitter patter! Even better if its a peonie in water!

I love this shot of Jenn’s dad.  He looks so dapper in his tux.  Very James Bond.
