Rebekah was enjoying the Christmas bonfire when the fireworks started and a large dog suddenly leaped into her lap. She had been chosen out of all the other celebrants that evening, as if the dog already knew she would be the right woman to join his life, and that of his owner, Chris. At the next church bonfire, she saw the dog, Gunner, again, and this time Chris was there, too. Their meeting was the perfect start to a new year and a new relationship.
Simply put, Rebekah and Chris feel right together. They look at each other in that special way of people who are in love and know they’re in love with the right person. Good job, Gunner!
Rebekah and Chris, thank you for being such a wonderful couple and reminding me again why I love my job. It was an honor to be part of your wedding day helping record memories of your love and commitment to each other.
They married at the Riverside Park United Methodist Church, which is full of charm. The beading detail on Rebekah’s dress was lovely.
They met in the church sanctuary for a first look. And that lovely stained glass window behind them? It was donated to the church by Chris’s family and was a perfect backdrop for a pre-wedding kiss.
Isn’t she just stunning?
Brides are notorious for kicking off those gorgeous shoes after the ceremony (at least for a little while), and I love how carefree they look here, finally married and just enjoying a moment together.
The reception was held at the Ponte Vedra Inn Club. It was a lovely setting for Rebekah and Chris’s first dance, complete with an elegant dip at the end.
The wedding wouldn’t be complete without a nod to the one who brought them together, Gunner the dog. This is the groom’s cake, and they also had the cutest dog cookies for favors.
The music was by KTG, and they did a fabulous job getting everyone dancing and enjoying the party.
