Jennifer & Bert’s Wedding | Jacksonville Wedding Photographers


It was a sunny but cold Saturday in early December when Jen & Bert said their “I do’s.”  It was my first wedding back on my feet after six weeks of crutches.  I was so anxious to get back in the game and couldn’t have asked for a better wedding to come back to.  Jennifer and Bert planned an elegant, vintage inspired wedding on the shores of the St. John’s river.  Club Continental and the Winterbourne Inn created the perfect setting.  Guests gathered on the lawn of the Winterbourne Inn as Jen prepared to walk down the aisle.  Her grandpa had the honor of giving her away and you could see the joy in Bert’s eyes as he took Jen’s hands in his own.  Although the sun was setting and the weather was becoming colder by the minute, no one seemed to mind as they watched these high school sweethearts commit themselves to one another for the rest of their lives.  Inside the Inn, the fires roared and the music enticed everyone to come inside and cozy up while the reception began.  There was so much love from these two families celebrating a match that was nearly a decade in the making.  We hope you enjoy a few of our favorites from the day below and don’t miss the slideshow for some extra goodness.

Thank you Jen & Bert for treating us like friends and allowing us into your world on such a special day.  We wish you many more decades of love and laughter in eachother’s arms.

In love,

Mel & Brad
