November 18th, 2023 – a sweet day that we will all remember forever. As I awoke on the morning of Jill & Tim’s big day, I glanced out the window and saw the sun ascending gracefully over the horizon. We all had a moment of relief since the day prior was a complete downpour. Stepping onto the balcony of my condo, I witnessed Jill & Tim, hand in hand, strolling along the beach. I loved getting to see them take a moment to be together that morning before their much-anticipated day.
Jill prepared for her special day surrounded by the love of their children and their partners. Together, they shared stories, tears of joy, and shared in the anticipation of witnessing Jill & Tim embark on this new chapter of life together. It was a morning of bonding, of love, and of precious memories that would forever be treasured by Jill and her family.
A moment for this stunning dress!!
Jill and Tim shared an intimate moment during their first look. With the sound of the waves in the background, Tim turned to see his beloved bride. Jill’s radiant smile illuminated the beach and time seemed to pause, allowing them to savor this moment before the whirlwind of the day’s celebrations began.
After their intimate first look on the beach, Jill and Tim decided to explore the charming streets of downtown Saint Augustine, immersing themselves in the quaint beauty of the historic city.
Upon reaching downtown, they were greeted by the lively energy of the bustling streets, filled with the sounds of laughter and the aroma of freshly brewed coffee wafting from cozy cafes. Arm in arm, Jill and Tim wandered through the picturesque setting.
After their downtown adventure, it was time for Jill and Tim to gather with their loved ones for the long-awaited ceremony. The serene beach, with its soft sands and panoramic views, provided the perfect setting for their union. As guests gathered and anticipation filled the air, Jill and Tim stood hand in hand, ready to exchange vows and embark on the next chapter of their lives together.
Everyone was in tears as we watched Jill’s two sons walk her down the aisle!
Exchanging the rings with their family by their sides – a beautiful representation of merging two families into one.
Jill and Tim’s ceremony gave way to an evening of celebration and joy as they welcomed their guests to the reception. Laughter and music filled the air as loved ones gathered to share in the newlyweds’ happiness, toasting to their future and reminiscing about cherished memories.
