They Simply Eloped: Angeline & Shane's Intimate Union in Yulee, Florida

Updated: Oct 28, 2023

Love knows no bounds, and for Angeline and Shane, it led them on a beautiful journey of togetherness. On a bright sunny morning, surrounded by their closest family and friends, they embarked on a heart warming elopement that would be etched in their memories forever.

The setting for their special day was the picturesque Nassau County Courthouse in Yulee, Florida. With its unique architecture adorned with white columns, it provided a stunning backdrop for the beginning of their new chapter. The simplicity and elegance of the courthouse perfectly matched the couple's vision for their intimate celebration.

Angeline was beautifully enhanced by the skilled hands of her sister, who happens to be a talented bridal hairstylist and makeup artist. Keeping her look simple and subtle, Angeline's sister, Maureen at the Parlor, expertly highlighted her facial features, imparting a radiant bridal glow that accentuated her natural beauty. Her long, lustrous hair was meticulously styled into a low classic messy bun. The gentle framing accentuated her features, adding an air of softness. Her hairstyle not only suited her but also showcased her beaded pearl veil, dainty necklace, and pearl drop earrings, creating a cohesive touch to her overall look.

The bride's dress choice perfectly complemented her golden skin tone, with olive undertones. A white strapless, short dress accentuated her waist, creating a chic and modern bridal ensemble. To complete her outfit, she adorned her feet with satin made, ankle-embellished pointed-toe pumps, adding a touch of glamour to her attire. As an added vintage flair, she wore an elegant white mesh short gloves, exuding timeless grace and charm.

Following the heartfelt ceremony, Angeline & Shane, along with their loved ones, made their way to Josephine - an enchanting and recently discovered restaurant nestled in Avondale. The venue exuded a timeless charm, making it the perfect setting for an intimate lunch celebration. As they stepped inside, they were greeted by an elegant private room that radiated sophistication. A breathtaking handmade Murano glass chandelier hung gracefully from the center of the room, casting a soft, warm glow upon the gathering. Its exquisite craftsmanship added a touch of luxury to the atmosphere, making the moment even more special. The main wall was adorned with a stunning dried floral centerpiece, crafted with meticulous attention to detail. The delicate arrangement showcased an array of enchanting colors and textures, symbolizing the beauty of love and the blending of two families. It served as a heartfelt welcome, inviting everyone to savor the moments of this joyous union.
