My Wedding Day | Vendors + Stores

Things that are put together well or organized never appear complicated on the outside. When you watch sports champions like Rodger Federer glide across the tennis court, I bet your bottom dollar you aren't thinking about the dude that iced his leg that morning, the coach who sculpted his forehand, or the chick that mixed his top-secret energy drink. 

Same goes for weddings. Despite all my perusings through the happy photos of wedded couples and cakes on Pinterest, it never dawned on me that, "Wow, this actually takes a lot of work and people to get this done!" I was just like, "omagahhh...so caaaUUUUUTTTEEE!! You are SO being pinned."

Like. Totally.

Anyways, I guess what I'm trying to say through all the blabber is that planning a wedding or any event for that matter takes a lot of time, thought, people and planning. Also a lot of research. If you live in the Jacksonville, Florida area, hopefully my list of vendors (who were all incredible, btw) will help you if you are currently planning your own wedding. Otherwise, it can be used as a tool for inspiration and ideas.
