It is not a secret that St. Augustine has become one of the highest ranked places to have a destination wedding in Florida. It is one of the top places in the Southeast region of the United States, so it is no secret why so many couples come here. We have the beaches, the intracoastal, Historic Downtown, and a large variety of wedding venues that put you in the middle of the best scenery. So when a bride from Florida falls in love with groom from South America, St. Augustine was the perfect place to bring their families together.
The River House is one of my favorite venues, not just in St. Augustine but in general. The items that are included in their venue costs, Constance and her amazing plus the best view on the Matanzas. Even with the July heat, guests were barely phased. We had pre-ceremony cocktail bar open for them and half of the wedding guests traveled all the way from Brazil!!!!! So Florida heat was a walk in the park. The day was brightened with a color palette of peach and orange and their was never a couple who had a more joyful day. Marcos beamed from ear to ear from the first time I met him until he left with his bride on their wedding night. Sarah was/is so beautiful. Her white Robert Bullock gown complemented her skin tone perfectly and then her Jade Violet Wedding Floral bouquet just set the world on fire. She was so calm and really soaked in the celebration.
Half of the guests spoke Portuguese, so as a wedding planner making sure everyones needs were met was a small challenge. Talk about amazing people!!!!!! They were just so happy to be there, excited to see a marriage and beginning of Marcos & Sarah’s life. It was a joy to be amongst them. They even extended their reception time to have longer with DJ Kevin Tos at Party Solution Entertainment. He packed the entire dance floor for hours! I still can’t believe it will be a year since we celebrated these two!
