Christina & Wilson | Sneak Peek
November 17, 2018 at Epping Forest Yacht Club
Christina and Wilson met when she moved to Alabama to work for Southern Living magazine in 2013, while Wilson lived in Alabama his whole life. They were introduced by their best friends who are married to one another, however, their romance did not begin until 2016. Will popped the question when visiting Ponte Vedra, where Christina is from. On their first night there, the two went for a walk on the beach where he got down on one knee. It was just the two of them on the beach, but they celebrated with all of Christina’s family in town.
Their Catholic wedding ceremony took place at Basilica of the Immaculate Conception in downtown Jacksonville. It was where Christina grew up and the church she always dreamed about getting married. There was a gorgeous sunset reception to follow at Epping Forrest Yacht Club. The band, I Love this Band, from Atlanta was amazing and kept the party going all night! Another special aspect to the night was their first dance to Leon Bridges, the first concert Christina and Wilson attended together as a couple. The morning after their big day, the newly married couple departed for France to celebrate! Paris, Provence, and Nice are the perfect places to eat, drink and begin their married life together.
