Sarah Hunt & Michael’s Goodwood Wedding- Tallahassee Wedding Coordinator

On February 20, 2016 Sarah Hunt married Michael Hinson at Goodwood Museum and Gardens in Tallahassee. I was their Tallahassee Wedding Day-of-Coordinator. I worked with Sarah Hunt for months putting together all the pieces of their wedding. They live in St. Petersburg, FL so planning from a distance required many emails, calls, and text messages. Sarah Hunt and Michael are a perfect match and it was such an honor to put together their wedding. The day after the wedding Sarah Hunt sent me a message “Thank you so much for everything yesterday! We couldn’t have done it without you and Tyler. We can’t thank you enough!”


“The most perfect day” Sarah Hunt Hinson

The day of the wedding the weather was perfect. A Country Rose Florist & Vintage Rental’s hung 6 beautiful chandeliers inside the Carriage House.
