I absolutely love how Kristin & Matt met! Kristin joined a co-ed kickball team with some of her girlfriends. While, she wasn’t too fond of sports, kickball brought them together – on 2nd base to be exact! Kristin and Matt talked after the game and like they say – the rest is history!
I’m SO close to telling all my single girlfriends to join a co-ed sports team – HA!
Chic Black & White Bellemoor Plantation Wedding | Details
There were so many amazing details at their wedding! Kristin was a totally outside of the box bride and we really appreciate that here at AJP! Her neutral was black and white stripes with all the jewel tones under the sun for her bridesmaids. Their Chic Black & White Bellemoor Plantation Wedding was everything from vintage, eclectic, and classic.
Chic Black & White Bellemoor Plantation Wedding | Ceremony
The ceremony was held at the Bellemoor Plantation in Ocala, FL. It’s this naturally beautiful venue with lush landscaping, majestic oak trees, and glistening lake. Kristin + Matt were married under the most beautiful chandeliers and canopy of trees. Kristin looked absolutely beautiful in her Esssence of Australia A-line beaded and tulle gown. Her love of black & white stripes were even on her feet which looked oh so chic!
Her bridesmaids looked absolutely gorg too! Their different colored dresses definitely added playfulness to the whole scheme of their Chic Black & White Bellemoor Plantation Wedding.
Chic Black & White Bellemoor Plantation Wedding | Reception
Their reception was held at sunset on the outdoor ground of the Bellemoor Plantation. Kristin + Matt looked so in love and happy dancing under the twinkling lights of the market lights & chandeliers. We have to say their lighting really was magnificent and provided by the venue.
The couple’s head table was adorned with black and white striped linens, candelabras with tapered candles, and green moss for a vintage feel. Okay…the parent dances…Kristin had her younger brother dance with her since their mother raised them on her own and my goodness it was so special! From what Kristin says…“He’s the cutest, sweetest 23 year old you will ever meet and I’m so proud of him.”
The party livened up – a lot by some of the guests! Some dance away while others enjoyed a bon fire and s’mores (yum)! Kristin + Matt’s cake, provided by Betty’s Cake Bakery looked tasty and beautiful! It was a naked two tier cake with the same florals from Kristin’s gorgeous bouquet, done by Belleview Florist.
After a gorgeous night under the stars the couple said good by to their guests with a sparkler grand exit! But Kristin of course had to go off in style with a monogrammed leather jacket showing off her new name! Best wishes to the lovely couple – they’ll be celebrating their one year in one more month!!
