Tallahassee Garden Club Wedding

There are many beautiful wedding venues in Tallahassee. One of which is the historic Tallahassee Garden Club located at 507 North Calhoun Street Tallahassee, FL 32301.  The Tallahassee Garden Club Rutergs House was built in 1926 and today is a non-profit organization composed of 25 circles and over 600 members. The Tallahassee Garden Club is available to rent for weddings and more. The ballroom can hold about 100 people. Plus there is a beautiful outdoor lawn space for weddings to take place and there is plenty of parking for guests.

On Friday, May 2nd I had the honor of officiating Hayley and Jackson’s Tallahassee Garden Club wedding. I had worked with Hayley for months creating a wonderful wedding ceremony that was perfect for her and Jackson.  On the day of the wedding it had just rained so everything was super green, lush, and beautiful. The ceremony was held outside on the brick patio. Upon arrival, I noticed the caterers truck was parked in a place that would be seen in their ceremony pictures so I quickly had her move it. My job is to officiate a nice ceremony but I aim to be the super hero of the event that comes in makes sure EVERYTHING about the ceremony is perfect including the pictures (which in this case would not have been good with a big truck in the background).

A string quartet played as guests were seated and while Hayley walked down the isle. Hayley and Jackson had a Wine and Love Letter piece in their ceremony, as well as, their own special written vows. The ceremony was very touching and beautiful. I was honored to be a part of their happy day. Hayley had just graduated from Florida State University with her nursing degree the day before the wedding and Jackson was graduating into the military the following day. So the weekend was sure full of celebration.
