To be part of this day, was such an honor. We helped plan one of Lauren’s brother’s wedding back in 2022, so helping Lauren plan the wedding of her dreams was so special.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This weekend was filled with so much love, it was truly the best day! We are so excited for you, L+P and are so happy we got to celebrate with you!

A Bourbon Bar?! Yes, please! 🥃
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
When we were working with R+N last year for their wedding, they wanted to add another wow factor to their big day and also something just for the guys. We worked with Shea Hopely Flowers Inc. and TPC Sawgrass Weddings and Events and came up with the idea of “Nick’s Bourbon Bar”!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We added a seating area with leather couches, dark linens for the high top tables and included a custom neon sign to the bar back for that added personal touch.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The bar and cigar roller were both a complete surprise to guests when we opened the doors after dinner to reveal the room. It not only added another element to their wedding, but was the perfect addition to an already perfect day!

The anticipation builds just before the wedding begins!

It's so exciting when the getting-ready room has a view of the ceremony space - the ladies get a look at the guests arriving and taking their seats.

There are few moments more special than a father walking his daughter down the aisle!

In that aisle, time seems to stand still, and the world fades away. It's a sacred passage, a bridge between two beautiful chapters. So here's to the fathers who held our hands in the beginning and continue to hold our hearts forever.

Our Story

First Coast Weddings and Events offers wedding planning and management services in Jacksonville, Ponte Vedra Beach, Palm Coast, St. Augustine, and all of Northeast Florida. Since 2002, our team has been a part of over 400 weddings and we’d love for yours to be our next!

Wedding Planning: From selecting the venue to choosing the smallest details, we will guide you through the planning process to make your wedding one of a kind. We will oversee all aspects of the wedding, including selection of wedding professionals, creating a cohesive design, and orchestrating the wedding day. Each of our wedding planning proposals is custom designed to meet your exact needs!

Wedding Management: Sometimes called “Day Of Coordination,” we’ll take over the logistics one month before the wedding, starting with a walk through of the ceremony and/or reception sites with you. We will confirm all contracted services with your team of wedding professionals, and created a detailed wedding day schedule to keep everything on track. In addition to attending the rehearsal, we will be available on the wedding day to oversee all the activities.

Contact us today to schedule your complimentary get-acquainted phone call.
