Kristen and Matthew’s emotive Timuquana Country Club of Jacksonville Wedding Video

Matt had been in college for three days when he set a new goal for himself.

He was going to talk to the prettiest girl in the room. That girl, no surprise, was Kristin. He later asked her to be his girlfriend and with a “sure”, their future was set. One would think they’d just met to see the way they look at each other. But years have passed since that first date and they are still just as in love today as they were then.

We kicked off Kristen and Matt’s Timuquana Country Club wedding weekend off with the rehearsal dinner at the River Club of Jacksonville

If you haven’t been there, it’s a soaring 36 stories. There were times I thought I could actually feel the building swaying! The evening was filled with good food, good company, and beautiful words. (Pro tip: Ask your wedding videographer along for the rehearsal dinner and encourage attendees to give toasts–you won’t regret it!)

The big day arrived and Matt and Kristin were so chill.

They had made it to the big day and they weren’t looking back now. The design by Melanie Paige Events was simply breathtaking. Florals and greenery draped the Timuquana Country Club to perfection and I’m still dreaming about the table design with flatware from Treasury Rentals. Andi Mejia was, of course, there with show-stopping seating charts and calligraphy. It was an all-star vendor list to be sure.

But as perfect as everything looked, I couldn’t take my eyes off of Matt and Kristin. They had me in tears during their first look. Once, when I was taking portraits of Kristin by herself I looked over and saw Matt gazing at her adoringly. I couldn’t help but ask what he was thinking about. Kristin–of course!

Enjoy this little highlight of their day and their love. It truly was the best way to start off 2021!
