Jacksonville Area Wedding Venue | Mathis House Wedding, Dorothy + Richie

Glen St. Mary Wedding Venue0859.jpg

Dorothy and Richie's wedding day was pure, peaceful and perfect! The weather was amazing, but the company was even better! The lovebirds selected The Mathis House for their celebratory occasion and we couldn't have pictured their wedding day any differently.

Richie was stoic as he watched Dorothy walk down the aisle to him. After their vows, they were all smiles and ready for the party!  Guests dined on delicious BBQ and a caricature artist was there to capture the guests at their best. 

The white wedding cake was a beautiful three-tier creation with frosting ruffle texture and edible hand-crafted flowers. The groom's cake was an ode to Richie's love for Nascar. 

Every DIY detail was beautifully composed. We're thrilled for the newlyweds and send them all our best wishes!

Jacksonville Area Wedding Venue | Kaitlin & Josh's Mathis House Wedding

North Florida Wedding Venue-13486.jpg

It was a beautiful Spring day when Kaitlin + Josh said their I dos! These two are a wonderful couple and we were thrilled to help them celebrate their marriage! Kaitlin is a kindergarten teacher in Jax and Josh works with granite and counter/cabinetry fabrications company. They have a beautiful love and are so well suited for one another. 

The bride and groom selected The Mathis House for their outdoor ceremony and reception. As each guest arrived they were invited to enter the front door of The Mathis House to sign the wedding registry, deposit wedding gifts and then gather on the back deck for greetings before the ceremony. 

Amanda with Events by Amanda was fabulous to work with!  She created a very simple and elegant atmosphere that showcased the house and grounds.  The flowers were simple and gorgeous and the sweets table looked scrumptious! 

Guests dined on fare from Raul Arias of Bella Wedding Events. They served a delicious meal and the wait staff was fantastic! We're so impressed by the images of the day- Christine really captured some amazing shots of the couple (especially those with the night sky).

The DJ's upbeat music kept guests on their feet- everyone seemed to have a great time! The couple's bubble send-off was the perfect ending to the evening. 

Check out their coordinator's FB page for more detail shots of the day!

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! 

North Florida Historic Wedding Venue | Mathis House, Chris and Nikki

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.

North Florida Wedding Venue | The Mathis House, Jami and Daniel

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!
