More Melrose Wedding - Gainesville, FL Wedding Photography

Marion & Russ's wedding was a country home affair with an overlay of elegance. Set in historic Melrose, FL at a friend's vintage estate overlooking Melrose Bay, Old Florida charm was in every detail.

signs. I LOVE signs. Especially handmade & custom ones like this.

Marion's good friend Kelly Brown took care of the floral arrangements for the day and they were to die for. I'm in love with the colors.

Pretty excited to be in her dress! I wonder why...!!

Marion & Russ chose to do a {first look} before the ceremony, after which we got some lovely portraits. We'll be posting some more details about first looks later on. Stay tuned!

Russell's nieces and nephew were the cutest kids ever!!! And have you seen a more fabulous flower girl dress? Apple green silk shantung, so fab.

I love seeing the taste and style of my brides come to life in their weddings. Loving the classic champagne & ivory dresses with the vibrant bouquets & jewelry. A special post on the jewelry coming soon!

the sacraments are so beautiful. holy communion.

time for some more portraits after the ceremony while we're waiting for the family to assemble.

To continue the charming country feel, Marion & Russ' reception included handmade quilts, strings of C9 lights, contra dancing, a live band, and handmade party balls. And of course for Russ, GO GATORS! One of the most adorable Gator cakes I've seen!

Marion & her Dad. The man with the plan and the love for music.

Dad had several special song requests that night from the local musicians. It was amazing!

Stay tuned for more info about {first looks} and the amazing {jewelry} Marion commissioned for her bridesmaids. <3 jemma
