Google+Southern Wedding of the Week: Kelli + Jeff, Part II - Southern Weddings

Southern Weddings

We’re back with more from Kelli + Jeff’s Florida wedding at the University Club, and can I please just say holy glitz, Batman!  A bold black + white damask, silver + gold accents and, yes, those crystals are literally dripping from the elegant five-armed chandeliers.  Nice work, Christina Kopecki!  Wilson’s, Ltd. Arranged the over-the-top florals while Classic Cakes (904-246-6408) took care of the black + white quilted confection.  Be sure to check out the rest of Lindsey Tropf’s work before you go!

Tell us about finding your wedding dress: Before going to try on dresses, I had my heart set on a silky satin. I tried on multiple styles before trying on the dress I knew was the one. It was so elegant and simple, and was a perfect complement to the atmosphere I was trying to create for my reception.  My favorite part was the bubble hem at the bottom.

Describe your wedding flowers: GORGEOUS. Other than actually getting married, the flowers were the most important part of the wedding! The simplicity of having white, ivory, and pink flowers really was breathtaking. We used these beautiful silver candelabras with strands of crystals hanging from the flowers

What was your most memorable moment about your wedding day? My dad means the world to me, and I wanted to express my love and gratitude for all he has done for me. I knew I would never be able to tell him in person, so I wrote him a long letter. I gave it to him a couple hours before I walked down the aisle. After he read it he came over a little teary eyed (which is unusual for him) to give me a hug and a kiss, and I just lost it. I should have planned it a little better because I just finished getting my make up done and could not stop crying.
What’s next for you as a couple?  What are you looking forward to in the future?
Hopefully my sister and I will be opening up our own wedding and event planning business in the near future. Jeff and I hope to spend as much time together, and to start a family within the next couple of years. We will see what God has in store for us!
