Jess & Kevin

10.12.18

Jess & Kevin were married at the Hillsboro Club in Florida, right down the road from her family home. Since Kevin is from Massachusetts, they loved the "Old Florida meets Martha's Vineyard" aesthetic of the venue. To echo the environment, the couple chose to only use tropical greens, white flora and touches of citrus throughout. With over 15 acres, the oceanfront grounds had everything they could’ve asked for to create an incredible wedding weekend. It felt like one big weekend-long house party, with guests hanging at the beach, drinking at the tiki bar, playing tennis & golf, and having meals together.

in her own words…

“Kevin and I attended Vanderbilt University, where we were both student athletes - he was a pitcher on the baseball team & I was a swimmer. While we ran in the same athletic circles and had the same close friends, we never really said more than a ‘hi’ to one another during our time at Vandy. It took a get together after graduation to really meet and from there, the connection was immediate.

Kevin proposed at one of our favorite places in Nashville called Cheekwood. It’s a historical estate with botanical gardens and a museum of art. He planned out a perfect breakfast picnic there, complete with a couple of my best friends to photograph and celebrate with us. We still live in Nashville, and love that we can frequent the spot where it all happened whenever we want.”

THE AVA GOWN | The Ava Gown was everything Jess could have ever envisioned in a wedding dress - it was elegant, timeless, and so incredibly comfortable.

“I tend to gravitate towards classic clothing and knew I wanted to feel like myself on my wedding day. I paired it with my grandmother's diamond drop earrings, and the whole look felt effortless and beautiful...it was just perfect for me!”
