Elegant reception decor in purple and white.

Today’s elegant real wedding comes to us from Zach Thomas of Monarch Studio, based in Saint Augustine, Florida! Here’s Zach to tell us more about the happy couple and their big day:

Monarch Studio’s last Nights of Lights wedding for 2016 was truly a stunner in every way. Amanda and Dillon relied on one of Saint Augustine’s premier wedding coordinators Lindsay at Coastal Celebrations to make their day perfect, and oh what a wonderful day it was. Their event, is one that all the wonderful vendors are talking about, and I’m sure their guest are too.

See more after the cut!

When Amanda and I spoke on the phone, for the first time, there was instant connection. She had this amazing laugh and wonderful personality, we hit it off right away, and once I was able to take her and Dillon around, I knew it was a perfect fit. They Chose Saint Augustine’s newest wedding venue the Treasury on the Plaza, for there ceremony and reception, and really who could ask for a better backdrop.
