Julie and Charlie's wedding color palette is definitely one of my favorites right now! Mint, navy, pink, and green. Their invitation suite was SO pretty and I think the perfect way to set the tone for what their wedding was going to look and feel like. Julie had planned the sweetest gifts for everyone involved in their wedding. Bridesmaids, their flower girl, and both sets of parents. One of my favorite moments of the day was when Julie's dad walked in and saw her totally ready. Richard was a wedding photographer by trade, he really enjoyed the day and totally entrusted us to do our thing. For me, it made me a little nervous, but feel so honored to be there. After the girls got ready we went behind the hotel on the waterfront, the light was amazing and you might even be able to see the hint of a mint green house in the background:-)
Charlie is one of the nicest, funniest and easy going guys you will meet, which makes sense because he is a K-5th grade reading and math teacher! He and his guys were in navy suits with mint ties. Charlie and his dad wore matching gold watches and how cute are his nephews who were also the ring bearers?
They officially became Mr. & Mrs. Griffin at a beautiful ceremony at Lutheran Church of the Palms. They have a chapel there with stained glass. We even got a photo with them and all of those cute kids!
After the ceremony we headed to downtown Dunedin where there are endless cool spots for photos including the long dock right next to Bon Apetit where you can feel the sea breeze and watch the sunset as you'll see later.
Their reception decor was the prettiest textured gold linens with navy spandex chair covers and tall floral center pieces mixed with gold candle center pieces. They had an "I Spy" game for their guests to take photos/videos of different events of the evening and then to use their #goinggriffin18 which I thought was a really cool idea we hadn't seen before. I love how simple and pretty their cake was with a glittery gold G on top. The sunset was gorgeous both from inside the dance floor and out of the dock. As we were talking in we got the reflection of the sunset in the windows of the venue. Per the Griffin family wedding tradition, Joe and John sang an Irish song and then everyone danced and danced and danced. It was the most beautiful day for these 2 and we couldn't have been happier to be there! Congratulations you guys and thank you for having us!!! xoxoxo
