G.G. Events was very lucky to have one of our past weddings in which we coordinated get published in Occasion’s Magazine. They could not have picked a more perfect DIY feature than this wedding. The bride and her mother spent hours and months getting all the little details from paper flower with different buttons for place cards to custom napkins which the mother of the bride sew herself. Every turn held another DIY touch.
The most amazing part of this story is their original venue closed its doors only a few weeks prior to their wedding day and they lucked out getting one of the most in demand venues The Cummer Museum in Jacksonville, FL. It end up being a beautiful breezy summer evening with an outdoor ceremony in the lush gardens with a view of the river in the background.
The Cocktail hour was held in the upper gardens and Loggia area with mini cheeseburgers and hush puppies butler passed. The guest enjoyed sipping on tea, lemonade and a signature cotton candy cocktail (non-alcoholic) while strolling through the gardens, visiting the cigar roller and the photobooth provided for their enjoyment.
The Reception was bathed in a soft peach pink glow of up-lighting with iron chandeliers hanging over the dance floor which were draped with hanging moss and greenery with hints of the flowers echoed in the centerpieces. Each table had a cute heart with the bride and groom’s initials burned in the wood pieces on the guest tables. The bride then had a variety of glass bottles with books and just simple stems of some of her favorite flowers like peonies, Juliets, gardens roses, Queen Ann’s lace, and dahlias.
