An Elegant Flagler Museum Wedding in Palm Beach, Florida
On Saturday, September 17th Andrew and I had the honor of capturing Laura and A.J.’s elegant Flagler Museum wedding in Palm Beach, Florida. This whole wedding day was an absolute dream. A breathtaking venue, elegant details, an inviting atmosphere and the most thoughtful couple ever; it was complete perfection! This elegant Flagler Museum wedding has taken the lead as my new favorite and you’re about to see why!
Why they choose the Flagler Museum
Laura and A.J. choose to have their wedding at the Henry Morison Flagler Museum because it was one of their favorite places in all of Palm Beach, FL. They shared many dates there, A.J. proposed there (in the same room that they said, “I do”), and they had their engagement photos taken there. So naturally, their wedding had to be at the Flagler Museum too! It was “their” place and the perfect place for their wedding.
Their Love Story
Laura and A.J. met at Palm Beach Atlantic University through mutual friends in 2013. They were both involved in the school’s Student Government program, during which they became closer friends. They soon discovered that they had mutual admirations. During the Spring semester of 2014, Laura and A.J. began dating. They stood by each other as many changes and challenges arose. That year, A.J. graduated and transitioned into the workforce and summer internships took them around the country.
Their Proposal Story
On December 13th, 2015, after an early church service, they had brunch at Hullabaloo, then headed to one of their favorite spots: The Flagler Museum. One of their favorite things to do was to walk around the museum during the Christmas season because the entire estate is decorated in Christmas decor. Laura was looking forward to spending some time alone with A.J. before she went home to Texas for the Christmas break. After walking around the museum for a while (although A.J. did keep rushing Laura through the signs and history lessons — much to her disappointment), they ended up in the Pavilion where they took a look at the train car. As they exited the train, A.J. got down on one knee and Laura immediately said, “Yes!”
Laura & A.J:
