This destination wedding in Amelia Island was full of character and charm. Maribel and Philip wanted an intimate wedding surrounded by family and close friends. In total there were about 30 guests present and I feel the small number of people invited was one of many similar decisions that made this wedding have so much character. Instead of a huge hotel they chose the Hoyt House, a historic home in Amelia Island full of Southern charm. Everything from the shoes, to the decor, locations and even food told a story.

Maribel and Philip love trying new wines from different regions of the world. These cork accents were very cool.

Nikki, the maid of honor, made these cute blindfolds for the couple to use. Maribel and Philip were blindfolded separately in each of their rooms and brought out to the front courtyard where I placed them back to back so they could reveal each other.

It was a foggy day in Amelia Island beach, but I thought it made the images have a unique look to them. The birds were welcomed guests adding drama to the pictures.
