8th Generation Bride Gets Married in St. Augustine
Updated: Mar 26
Andie made history at The Treasury on the Plaza on her wedding day. She is the 8th generation in her family to be married in St. Augustine. Whoa.
A photo of Andie's great grandmother hangs in the hallway of the six-story building that went under construction in 1926. With its iconic pillars and high ceilings, this premier bank in the heart of downtown St. Augustine was eventually converted to a private event venue in 2014. It was a special moment to see Andie in her wedding dress, pointing to the picture of her great grandmother, who worked at the bank, just moments before her wedding ceremony in the same building.
What I witnessed that day between Andie and Christian was really something special – something I will never forget. It started at a quaint house just outside the historic Lincolnville district. The room was filled with friends and laughter the morning of her wedding. The energy was euphoric and the retro vibes nostalgic. It was a timeless frequency that makes you forget where you are. If there was one way to describe that morning, it was ultimate jollification.
Christian's reaction to his first sight of Andie [at 5:16] was another moment that melted everyone's hearts that day.
The two of them met during the filming of a realty TV show and were clearly inseparable since. The love they share for each other was glowing on camera and no one could possibly hold back the tears when they read their vows. Shortly after, a spontaneous moment of celebration among random strangers took place on the front porch of The Treasury. A busy town square was caught off guard as everyone turned their attention to this group of pure joy to celebrate them.
This beautiful party cloudy day in downtown St. Augustine led us over to Flagler College for some special moments in the Flagler College courtyard. We also filmed some "couples only moments" by the fountain, in between Flagler College and The Treasury. I've mentioned this many times before, but the convenience of having your wedding in downtown St. Augustine is unmatched. There are so many incredible locations, rain or shine, to film/take photos.
As the sun set and we finished shooting the "magic hour," where everything on camera looks amazing, the celebration continued with a reception at The Treasury and an out-of-this-world dance party.
One of my favorite things about these wedding films are the dancing scenes. I really pride myself on creating an epic music video toward the end of every film, and they are so much fun to make. I hope you enjoyed Andie and Christian's wedding film and it inspires you to have a memory like theirs for your wedding. Happy planning! Stay healthy, safe, and madly in love.
