Oyster Bay Yacht Club Wedding | Fernandina Beach, FL | Nikki + Matt
I absolutely adore photographing Nikki and Matt at their Oyster Bay Yacht Club wedding in Fernandina Beach, FL. These two are a very laid back and have great style! Nikki had a clear vision for her wedding and all her hard work towards that vision clearly paid off!
When I met Nikki at her consultation she knew already where she wanted to take her engagement photos. She had her heart set on Washington Oaks State Park and Gardens. I was jumping for joy that is where she wanted to shoot as I LOVE everything about the place. (Check out their engagement session HERE.) Then, when she told me she was getting married at Oyster Bay Yacht Club (OBYC), I was even more excited!
THE WEDDING DAY
The amazing getting ready space is located directly next to the OBYC venue. The amazing lawn ceremony under the trees was perfect. Nikki chose a pale blue and peach as her wedding colors. The bridesmaids looked fabulous in their long, pale blue dresses and classy white bouquets.
The groom and groomsmen looked dashing in navy blue suits. Yet, the flower girl stole the show. The couple’s dog walked down the aisle with a collar of flowers and was the sweetest pup!
The ceremony took place under the shade of the trees on the lawn of Oyster Bay Yacht Club. Then, portraits immediately followed at the same location as well as on the small bridge at the entrance to the club. The couple got introduced into reception. Tables had decorations of glass candle vases and greenery on top of pale blue fabric. Every detail tied together and felt like an intimate affair.
The couple’s first dance took place on the pool patio surrounded by their friends and family. Once dinner started it was time to take some sunset photos of Nikki and Matt. So we decided to go to the docks and it turned out to be the best decision. Within 20 minutes we created some amazing photos and were back at the reception to dance into the night. The night ended with a cheerful yet romantic sparkler exit.
