Personalized Neon Signs.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
These have become so popular this past year and we are loving it!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Make it a photo op for you and your guests or place it at your head table for a statement piece. Either way they are sure to make a statement!

Emma & Ricardo had their sign hung on a boxwood wall near the guestbook table and it made for a perfect photo op for their guests!!

We love a pretty flat lay photo. 🤍
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Here is a little tip: be sure to bring a copy of your invitation suite, save the date, and any other stationary that is associated with your big day or wedding weekend you want photographed. Your photographer will use them along with other personal details like your perfume, your rings or florals to capture those beautiful detail photos.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We love how elegant @stephanie.w.photography captured all the details for Alana & Pete.

Attending this weekend's @premierbridefl expo? Here are a few tips for attending bridal shows!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
1. Print your contact information on address labels and bring with you. Make sure to include your first and last name, your wedding date (if you have one), your phone number and your email. This will save you from having to rewrite your information over and over.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
2. Register online prior to the show. This will save you lots of time when you arrive
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
3. Make sure to bring your calendar or have your phone handy with your schedule when talking to vendors so you can schedule consultations with vendors you are interested in.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
4. Wait a couple days before going through all the goodies and information you collected during the show. This will give you a little time to process everything so you don't feel overwhelmed.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
4. And lastly, HAVE FUN!

Writing your own personal vows to one another is so special, whether you decide to share them privately before the ceremony or share them in front of your family and friends during the ceremony.

11/8/2002-11/8/2021: Today, First Coast Weddings and Events is officially 19 years old! Laura, Kari, Heather and Emma got together tonight for a celebratory dinner - it's been a busy fall wedding season and we don't get to see each other in person enough! It was a great evening to catch up and get ready to close out the year with more fabulous weddings! What should we do for our 20th anniversary next year?

Laura joined First Coast Weddings in 2017, and is also a graduate of Flagler College.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
On wedding days, her goal is to take away the stress and worry from not only the couple, but the family (typically parents) as well so they can enjoy the day that they have dreamed about for so long.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
When she's not planning weddings, Laura and her husband, Jamey, enjoy being outdoors, whether it’s golfing, going to the beach or taking their sweet pup to the dog park!

Kari joined First Coast Weddings in 2012, after working in the wedding industry in Orlando for several years.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
She encourages couples to add sentimental touches to their wedding day. During their wedding ceremony, her husband, Tim, wore her grandfather’s ring on his right hand, and had a special handkerchief from her sister in his pocket. Kari had special mementos from friends and family sewn into her dress - a special tag from her best friend, her great grandmother’s brooch and a necklace pendant from her sister.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
You can find her traveling with her husband and baby girl in her free time, and she can’t live without mac and cheese.

Emma is also a Flagler College graduate and has been part of the First Coast Weddings team since 2006.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
She loves to travel internationally, but is equally happy walking by the ocean in St. Augustine Beach or exploring great restaurants around town. Emma is also a yoga teacher, and she’s great at keeping everyone calm in stressful situations.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
She wishes that every couple would hire a videographer for their wedding because the day goes by so quickly. She and her husband, Drew, watch their video every year on their anniversary, and now their children watch it with them.

Meet Heather! Owner of First Coast Weddings & Events. She founded First Coast Weddings in 2002, having worked in the hospitality industry since 1996 and graduating from Flagler College in 1998.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Her favorite wedding tradition is the first look or first touch - just a special few moments for the couple to be alone before the ceremony!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
When she is not planning weddings, you can find her relaxing by the pool, visiting Walt Disney World or tackling home improvement projects with her husband, Chad.

Seating Chart.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We love how Alana & Pete chose to use pineapples to display their seating chart.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Not only did it make for a beautiful display and fit the design of their wedding, but later in the night we repurposed them to go around their dessert stations.

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.
