Ocean Blue Beach House | Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida
Jayne and Mark were married at the Ocean Blue beach house in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida. The couple met in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. Jayne was in the final stages of her PhD program at the University of British Columbia and Mark was working as a designer at a software company. On their first date, Jayne warned Mark that she didn’t know where she would end up after her PhD, but Mark said he would be willing to move anywhere with her. Mark proposed on New Year’s Eve, 2015 in the romantic setting of West Restaurant in Vancouver. He got to fulfill his first date promise months later when Jayne got a job as a Lecturer in Classics at the University of Tasmania and they packed their bags to move to Hobart, Tasmania, Australia. They returned to Jayne’s native Florida in December to celebrate their marriage with their friends and family.
Right away Sam and I felt like part of the family. The morning at Ocean Blue was friends eating breakfast and laughing at a kitchen table while the girls were upstairs getting ready to old school tunes. Once the tent was set, candles lite and flowers placed it was time for the ceremony. Jayne and Mark’s ceremony was on the back lawn with a view of the ocean. You couldn’t help but get chocked up when you saw Jayne’s face while walking down the aisle. After the “i dos” came a lot of dancing. Yes, it was chilly, but with a few blankets and heat lamps the party was just getting started. It was clear that Jayne and Mark have surrounded themselves with a fantastic group of people that love and adore them.
