The wedding gown that basically broke the internet happens to have a wonderful love story attached to it 🙂 Kayla & Carl are two of the livliest and hilarious people I have ever come across. Kayla laughs and cries at a drop of a hat and Carl is sarcastic and strong to complement her in all of the perfect ways.
Their wedding was a perfect example of how to mix the traditions of your culture & religion while also putting a personal spin on items throughout the day. They were married in a Greek Orthodox church with a traditional ceremony, yet they had a picturesque private vow exchange afterwards! Also, while guests were traveling to the reception to enjoy cocktail hour, they snuck off to a local bar for drinks with their bridal party to decompress and have fun! I felt like they were just the happiest people alive and that was the best feeling!
To add, I think that The River Club in Jacksonville, Fl is the best venue EVER for a Christmas wedding theme! All of the trees and garlands and lights you see were part of the venue! What a perfect setting for this big day.
TEG loves you, Mr. & Mrs. Hawkins
