Hawaiian Princess Meets NFL Warrior

Lindsey and I were counting down the days until Katie and Jason’s glamour chic wedding at Los Willows Wedding Estate.  I quickly learned after meeting with Katie, that Jason had recently joined the Jacksonville Jaguars as their new kicker.  Needless to say, I just had to pick him up on my fantasy team ;).  **Side note:  So glad I did because he actually saved my butt on several occasions.
Okay back to the epicness that was this wedding!  Everything was perfection when we arrived at Los Willows.  The birds were chirping, the brook was babbling, and Katie and her girls were listening to some awesome crunked out music as they glammed up for the big day.


I was absolutely blown away after seeing how Michelle Garibay Event’s team completely transformed this venue!  Blush and ivory flowers drenched the secluded ceremony space and tented pavilion.  Inside the draped reception, the natural wooden farm tables were dressed beautifully with lace and set with blush and gold charger plates accompanied with rose gold dinnerware.  Since her family had lived in Hawaii for so long, Katie’s dad wanted to bring a little of Hawaii to the reception.  He told a love story about a Hawaiian princess and a handsome young warrior (aka: Katie & Jason).  Afterwards Katie’s dad surprised her with a beautiful Hawaiian headdress to wear during their dance.  Her father wore a garland made of green maile leaves and when the dance was finished, passed it on to Jason to wear.  Once the formalities were over, the band was free to do their thing, and boy did it go off!  Their classic white dance floor was never empty.  These people knew how to party and party they did!

Katie and Jason…we will never forget how much fun it was at your wedding.  We consider you two friends and hope to come visit someday in Florida.  Go Jags!!
