Becca and Matt’s St. Augustine wedding found the perfect balance between traditional and modern. A romantic color palette of blush, olive green, and burgundy paired effortlessly with the black tie fashion choices. Complementing the look of the cathedral where the couple said “I do,” hints of Spanish styling made the event unique to Becca and Matt’s tastes and beautiful to behold in these images by Still55 Photography. We’re absolutely smitten with the portraits they captured as the newlyweds let their hair down for a waterfront photo shoot in the Florida sunset.
Becca and Matt
The White Room, St. Augustine, Florida
We wanted to keep our decor simple, modern and with clean lines. Our overall color theme was blush + olive green with a pop of burgundy in the flower arrangements. The black and gold details of the vases, seating cards and cocktail napkins gave the lighter decor just enough edge.
We wanted our guests to dress up with us, so they wore tuxes and gowns! I always knew I wanted an all lace wedding dress, but the long sleeves and ivory/amaretto colors seemed to compliment the old Spanish feel of The Cathedral just perfectly. Since Matt and I love sneakers, we surprised our groomsmen with matching all black Nike Air Max’s and our bridesmaids with rose gold Nike Dunk Sky Hi’s to party all night in. We rocked our own versions – in all white of course.
Among the memories of high fives and smiles walking down the aisle together and the loving speeches from both fathers – our favorite moment from the wedding was at the end of the night, during our private dance on the rooftop overlooking downtown St. Augustine. It was the perfect time to reflect on everything we accomplished and celebrated that day, just the two of us.
The Couple Recommends:
Working with Joe and Christina Mills of Still55 was truly everything we could have asked for in a wedding photographer. From our engagement photos in New York City to our wedding day and to the creatives and post-wedding photo session in St. Augustine, FL – they captured every precious moment in such a creative way. They are professional, efficient and so easy to work with. They listened to our every request and delivered exactly how we imagined our photos to be. We are so lucky and blessed to have worked with them!
