Bill and Michelle are as sweet as can be - totally laid back, fun and sincere! Michelle and her girls had a fun morning relaxing, laughing and even enjoying some champagne before heading off to the ceremony in her Uncle's vintage car! Jacksonville Chapel was filled with the people they love the most. What struck me most about this wedding was the amount of love that was poured into it. It was truly a collaborative effort! Michelle's sister designed and created the bouquets, friends who also happen to be professionals provided hair and makeup services, and Bill and his family built the arch for the ceremony. The wedding and the details were undeniably beautiful, but the magical part was you could actually see and feel the love poured in. It also helps that Michelle has incredible style! For their tented reception, she designed beautiful, rustic centerpieces of greenery and burlap and created incredible hanging chandeliers out of candles and mason jars. Michelle even wore three different dresses: a long and traditional dress for the church ceremony, a shorter, vintage inspired fun dress for dancing at the reception, and a more casual dress for her prayer send off and trip to their honeymoon! We LOVE that this couple chose to be sent off in prayer instead of sparklers. It was a beautiful and touching way to end a magical day!
