{Avila Golf and Country Club Wedding | Jan & Mark}

Jan and Mark wanted a fun party with all their favorite people to celebrate their wedding.  They totally nailed it!  Jan got ready with her mom, Marion, her daughter Jessica, and Mark's daughter, KD who were her 2 bridesmaids.  These candid moments during getting ready are some of my favorite.  They danced, drank mimosas and just had a sweet time.  Jan's gown was so perfect! She had showed me a photo before and said she was adding a pearl belt and it was simple but stunning!  That mauve color is so in right now and my favorite color.  Their bouquets had amnesia roses that matched Jessica and KD's dresses perfectly.  Mark and the guys got ready in the lounge before we did a first look with them.  Since it is June here in Florida they choose Avila Golf and Country Club because you literally don't have to go outside at all, not even for photos.  My 2 favorite things about this venue is the beautiful light that comes through the atrium and the 2nd floor where you can shoot down from. It makes for two totally different perspectives of first look, the ceremony, and dancing.  Before the guests arrived, Jan walked down the aisle for Mark to see her as her mom and the girls watched from above.  We got all their bridal and family photos done before the ceremony so they could spend as much time as possible with their guests.  Rev Rick performed a beautiful ceremony and announced them as the official Mr. & Mrs. Budzinski.  Their reception was decor was these beautiful lace linen overlaying purple with silver chivaris and alternating high and low florals.  Jan and Mark did their first dance on the round medallion in the atrium with all their guests watching.  Jan's daughter Jessica and her boyfriend Kyle have been dating for a while so she and Mark had a little surprise presentation of the bouquet and garter for them during the reception.  They had an amazing spread of all different mini desserts and a cigar roller in the lounge outside.  Everyone had such an amazing time!!  I have to give an extra shout out to Laura Wade, from Serendipity Events for creating a flawless event with this team of fabulous professionals below.  Congratulations Jan and Mark and thank you for having us!!!! xoxoox

{Suzanne & Ken @ Avila Country Club}

This was our 2nd to last wedding of the year and one of my absolute favorites. Suzanne and Ken have been engaged for quite some time now, 13 years.  They are some of the happiest, and sweetest people you will ever meet.  Suzanne's daughter, Samantha, was her maid of honor and Ken's son, Chris, was the best man. Their grandson was the ring bearer, and 16 year old Molly was the flower girl. Which is funny, because that's what it said in the program, if you don't know that Molly is their dog:-) It was a beautiful ceremony in the atrium, Ken had a little tear as Suzanne walked down the aisle. You could literally feel the love and happiness all their family and friends had celebrating with them. Just writing this makes me smile and is exactly why I love what we do. Congrats Suzanne & Ken!!! xoxoxo
