Vintage Southern Charm: Jo & Sarah
May 11, 2013
Jo and Sarah’s wedding was the perfect combination of Jo’s casual style and Sarah’s love of vintage glamour. Every detail represented something special about the couple.
Jo and Sarah chose their venue, the Mandarin Community Club when they fell in love at first sight with the beautiful trees and historic buildings. The property features gorgeous grandfather oaks and magnolias, and was once the “Freedom School” built and founded by Harriet Beecher Stowe. The school was intended as a place where children of all races could learn together. As a same sex couple, Jo and Sarah loved the idea that their wedding would stand for freedom to love whomever you choose on a property that was founded on equality long before it was accepted in Northeast Florida.
