Katy + William – Epping-Forest Yacht Club – Jacksonville, FL
The historic Epping Forest Yacht Club was the perfect location for this classic white and gold Jacksonville wedding.
Katy looked amazing in a soft flowing modern Hayley Paige wedding gown with a deep V neckline and illusion lace bodice. Both Katy and her wedding party carried monochromatic white bouquets of hydrangea, roses and ranunculus.
William waited with excitement for his bride to be to make her way down the aisle of Jacksonville’s St Paul’s Catholic Church. He wore a custom made, classic black, vested tuxedo with a very special touch.
The gentlemen wore ruggedly designed boutonnieres of duck feathers and a white spray rose with a small bullet shell as the stopper at the end. A nod to William’s love of duck hunting. SO CUTE!
The couple exchanged their wedding vows in a simple, elegant ceremony, surrounded by family and friends.
Following the wedding ceremony, the wedding party and guests made their way to the yacht club. With rain beginning to fall on their wedding day the couple took everything in stride.
The meticulously restored mansion was set with a combination of long rectangular and round dining tables draped in soft cream toned linen with floral centerpieces of white hydrangea, white roses and the palest possible pink tea roses. Gold accents including charger plates, contemporary candle globes with geometric gold patterns, table numbers and a large gold “P” monogram above the fireplace added a pop of color.
The couple opened the evening on a white dancefloor under a tent with soft white draping and twinkle lights.
Before the couple cut their three-tiered white butter cream wedding cake the guests danced the night away and snapped some Instagram worthy selfies with the couple who met on Instagram.
Katy and William made their grand exit under a shower of sparklers before their getaway in an incredible Rolls Royce named Silver Thorne.
Congratulations Katy and William, we are glad your hunt is over.
Thank you to the wonderful wedding vendors who brought this wedding to life.
