Pink and Silver Wedding by Tonya Beaver Photography

Kunbi O / Thursday September 26, 2013

Happy Thursday! Jessica and George’s Jacksonville, Florida wedding by Tonya Beaver Photography is just what the doctor ordered. The couple got married in a gorgeous blush, pink and silver wedding at the Hyatt Regency Riverfront. Everything about this wedding was elegant and perfectly executed. It’s the perfect way to spend our Thursday.

How They Met
We met 6 1/2 years ago in undergrad at The University of South Florida. We were in the same premed genetics class and a mutual friend, Ergen(one of the groomsmen) who was also in our class formally introduced us outside of the library. We began a “study” friendship and then took the same biochemistry class the following semester and George asked me out at 3am after a long night of cramming for our first Biochem exam.
How He Asked
He took me to Disney World, one of our favorite places, on Friday and he wore cargo shorts and brought a new camera with him and made sure that we made it to the front of the castle for the fireworks show…i definitely thought he was gonna propose! He tricked me! Instead he proposed on Sunday at the Swan & Dolphin resort after a Mickey and Minnie Mouse breakfast, day at the spa, paddle boats and a romantic dinner. He definitely kept me in suspense, but it was perfect, i wouldn’t have changed any bit of it
Inspiration for the Day
First we decided that blush pink and gold looked beautiful after searching some pictures on Then the type A personality in me freaked out with the idea of gold accents and silverware…so it then became blush pink and silver/gray. George and I decided on all white flowers and pink uplighting. After looking at a million pinterest pictures we decided on hydrangeas and George loved the circular symmetrical look and I insisted on tall centerpieces. The cake was a mixture of pinterest pictures and our own style:)a tall and blingy yet classy cake was very important to us! the flavor for the cake was a simple decision once we tasted flavors at For the Love of Cake
