When Anna first reached out to me about her wedding, you could hear the excitement in her voice about the location they had chosen. Anna and Eric currently live in Orlando, Florida, but wanted to have the wedding at The Glass Factory in Jacksonville, Florida. Jacksonville is one of my favorite cities so I was immediately excited as well! Their wedding took place in the heart of downtown Jacksonville, which is an area full of historic brick buildings. While the theme of the wedding was the color navy and Anna’s favorite flower, the sunflower, the other obvious theme of their wedding was family. Anna invited me to her bridal shower a few months before the big day (which meant so much to me!), where I got to meet both her and Eric’s mothers and more of their family and friends. I could tell that day that Anna came from a good family and was marrying into one as well. When I walked into the bridal suite on the wedding day I received the warmest welcome from her family and bridesmaids. Eric chose his dad to be his best man, and his son was one of the super adorable ring bearers! Some of my favorite parts of the day include Anna’s First Look with her dad (LOVE), all the rose gold jewelry (wait til you see the close up of Anna’s ring), and also the hand written notes they wrote to each other and read them while they got ready. Okay, and I will also add listening to the Moana soundtrack right before the ceremony began! Gotta love when the bride is a Disney fan like me! For the bride and groom portraits, we did the majority across the street from the Glass Factory in front of a white brick building. The night ended with sparkler exits and a black Porsche getaway car provided by Eric’s company Zotz Racing. What a way to drive off as husband and wife!
Congratulations Eric & Anna!
