Kayla + Jonathan | Winter Wedding in St. Augustine at the Lightner Museum

Kayla and Jonathan celebrated their winter wedding in St. Augustine in January. Our happy couple hosted their wedding ceremony in the twinkle-lit courtyard of City Hall, making the most of St. Augustine’s Nights of Lights! After their vows, Kayla and Jonathan’s guests were escorted through the Lightner Museum and into the Historic Pool and Mezzanine for their wedding reception. There was no shortage of simple elegance and charm!

 

Kayla and Jonathan started their special day with a first look in the front courtyard outside of the Lightner gates. Jonathan was overcome by emotion when he saw his stunning bride.

The wedding ceremony was held in the City Hall Courtyard, which is located right next to the Lightner Museum. Kayla’s mom and dad shared the honor of giving her away, while their ring bearers and flower girls nearly stole the show with their cuteness!
