Cristina and Travis reside in Oregon but both grew up in Ormond Beach, FL so it was a no-brainer to have their wedding at the beach. Cristina knew exactly what style she wanted for her wedding…casual, whimsical and outdoors. Her parents on the other hand preferred formal, indoors and traditional. I had my work cut out for me to find the middle ground! Their wedding took place on Thanksgiving weekend where guests were entertained from the moment they arrive beginning with a large Thanksgiving dinner, golf, BBQ and lawn games on Friday followed by dinner at a Japanese Steakhouse, stunning beachside wedding on Saturday and a delicious farewell brunch on Sunday! On Wednesday of that week, the weather turned un-seasonably cold for Florida…it was 34 degrees on Saturday!! I remember my fingers being numb during the ceremony! The outdoor reception was moved in but with the help of some amazing vendors the ballroom was completely transformed! I enjoyed working with the White and Whitmer families so much and I will remember this wedding for many years to come!
