Northeast Florida Wedding Venue | The Mathis House, Emily & Justin's Wedding

Newlyweds at Outdoor Wedding Venue in Jacksonville

Emily & Justin, who wed at the Mathis House, wanted a laid-back, carefree, family focused wedding that celebrated the good things in life. Lots of laughter, great food and the company of those who love us.

This couple is so in love and were positively giddy about their nuptials and marriage. They planned the wedding as a team and had lots of fun DIY touches.

They held their ceremony beneath the pines on the Mathis house grounds. They followed their vows with a tented reception on the back lawn. 

We loved the board games during the reception, the food trucks (SO much fun) and Emily's beautiful vintage inspired lace and tulle wedding dress.  

Everyone was so joyful all day long. It was a beautiful wedding with an even more beautiful couple! We were honored to help them celebrate their love and can't wait to hear where life takes them!

Chris and Nikki hosted a simple, beautiful, DIY wedding. They focused on the impact of their pending nuptials and lived in the moment, without the worry or stress that we sometimes see when planning more elaborate affairs. They selected The Mathis House for their outdoor ceremony and reception.  

The weather was gorgeous! April weddings are almost always the best Spring month to get married in Florida. The sun was shining, the breeze blew softly and the temperature was a dream. 

Kelly, the photography, is Nikki's best friend. Which, we think, you can really see in the photographs. There is something so personal about the images. Especially the first look- which was incredibly touching! 

We loved Nikki's bohemian, casual wedding dress! It had exquisite lace detail and fit her so beautifully. Her bridesmaids also wore white, which was quite a vision (and actually very traditional). 

Nikki and Chris were very laid back and enjoyed every moment of the day.

Jami and Daniel are such a wonderful, down to earth couple! Their wedding day was overflowing with the neatest DIY details. From Jami's paper flower bouquet to the Harry Potter magic wands, it was all about including fun and unique intricacies that would make the ceremony and reception memorable for them and their guests!

They opted for a first look in front of The Mathis house. As Jami made her way to Daniel, you could almost feel the excitement of the moment! It was wonderful for them to have a moment to calm their nervous jitters. 

Since we happen to be a pet friendly venue- the couple was able to include their fur-babies in the wedding festivities. One of our favorite images of the day is Jami and Daniel with their dogs. 

Jami and Daniel's outdoor spring wedding was hosted at The Mathis House. The couple selected the gazebo for their ceremony, which is one of two of our ceremony sites at The Mathis. Following the ceremony, the hosted their guests outdoors behind the house, with buffet and dancing on the porch. 

It was a pleasure and blessing to be Jami + Daniel's wedding venue. But truth be told, we felt more like family when it was all said and done! Wishing these two many happy years ahead!

Daniel and Ashley are a perfect pair. Sure, you may think we say that about everyone. But, we don't! This couple was destined to be together. They found love at an early age. Just how early you ask? Well, you hear stories about High School Sweethearts, but it's not often that you hear about Middle School Sweethearts!  From their first dance in 7th grade, Daniel knew he wanted to spend forever with Ashley.  A truly incredible blessing!
