“Do you remember… the 21st night of September”
Where to even begin with Julia, and Brad. Their love story happens to be one of my favorites- you may remember from a previous blog that Julia and Brad actually met at a Smoothie King, and the rest is history.
Julia and Brad decided to get married at the Marywood Retreat and Conference Center, and this venue is nothing short of breath taking. This Jacksonville, Florida Venue hits every need- a stunning view of the St Johns River, beautiful architecture, and big mossy oaks. The Chapel at the Retreat Center is decorated with ornate stained glass windows in the back, and beautiful floor to ceiling windows in the front that overlook the river.
I often times have crafty brides, but for this wedding Brad stepped up to the plate. He actually hand crafted the beautiful centerpieces. Not only did he show his creative side for the wedding, but Brad now gets to celebrate his birthday, and anniversary on the same day each year!
The ceremony was perfect, the reception was a hit, and the families showed so much love and support. They wrapped Julia and Brad with words from scripture, and beautiful music.
Here are some of my favorite moments from Julia and Brads wedding.
