October 18th was a crazy day in Tallahassee because the Florida State Seminoles were playing Notre Dame in Tallahassee. For those of you that know what it’s like to live in a college football town you know this is a BIG deal. So about a month and half before October 18, 2014, I got a message from Ashley asking if there’s ANY WAY I would officiate her October 18th wedding at The Retreat at Bradley’s Pond in Tallahassee, FL. The person she originally had asked to officiate her wedding just backed out on her so she was really hoping I would help her out. Fortunately, I was available and I don’t really like football so I was more than happy to officiate their wedding!
Ashley and Seth had wonderful wedding vendors working with them to create a beautiful wedding day. Nate Long with Amplify Entertainment was their DJ, Kate with A Piece of Cake Event Planning was their wedding planner, Piggy’s BBQ was the caterer, and Tallahassee Photo Booth.
Ashley and Seth hired me to serve as their rehearsal director so the day before the wedding I met everyone out at The Retreat at Bradley’s Pond. It was a great rehearsal because Kate (their wedding planner) and I were able to work together to show everyone where and when to walk. We practiced a couple of times and everyone was ready.
On Ashley and Seth’s wedding day the weather was awesome!! The sun was shinning and there was low humidity. Ashley looked beautiful!! Her father walked her down the isle and she wore her veil over her face. They the isle was lined with shepherds hooks and hanging mason chairs filled with flowers. Ashley was very smart and after the ceremony Kate took all the flowers from the outside mason jars and brought them inside to use for the table centerpiece flowers! What a great idea!! Ashley and Seth were a super fun and easy going couple. Their love for each was so apparent and I wish them all the happiness!!
