Sunshine ahead, darlings! No, no, there's no need to rush outside, you can find all the warm rays you need right here in Courtney & Aaron's wedding in Florida, shared today by Jeff Kolodny Photography. And, goodness, is their day dripping with beauty and romance — red rose bouquets, a candlelit reception...oh, and did we mention the stunning portraits on the grounds at PGA National Resort & Spa? There's no doubt about it, friends, this was one stunning day. Browse the gallery, and you'll see what we mean!

From the lovely bride...

Aaron and I met at the Northern Kentucky Chamber of Commerce in November of 2012. I had just helped move my father’s company from Cincinnati, Ohio to Northern Kentucky that past February. When we were finally moved into the new location, I decided to join the Chamber in hopes of meeting local businesses. In December of 2012, I decided the only way to meet local business was to get involved. So, I joined the Business Engagement committee and Aaron happened to be on the committee! Love did not happen right away. We ended up showing up to the January 2013 meeting early and got to know each other for a bit before the meeting. Aaron is a Financial Planner and I am all about bringing new business to her father’s company. I encouraged Aaron to come and introduce himself to TBS Meat Distributors in hopes of getting some added business. Little did I know, I would meet my best friend and husband-to-be in the weeks following his visit to T.B.S. We got engaged in November of 2013 and decided to wed on Valentine’s Day 2015. PGA national was the venue of choice. Not only is it home to the Honda Classic, but it is also a beautiful venue. We both enjoy playing golf and so do our friends and family who would be attending the wedding. PGA has accent colors throughout their resort and the magical color is RED. Perfect for a Valentine’s Day wedding! Being a destination wedding, we decided it was only practical to hire a wedding planner. Boy, is that a must in the wedding world! We hired Your Special Day by Joni and with her help came all of the other fabulous vendor recommendations! Being Catholic, we wanted to have an outdoor Catholic wedding, which is very hard considering priests do not like to marry outside of their congregation. We searched and found Franciscans of South Florida Catholic Ministry. Father Luis R Lopez was willing and able to come marry us. The day was perfect!

A Red and White Valentine’s Day Wedding at PGA National Resort and Spa in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida

Almost a year after Courtney Brown (31) and Aaron Seyfried (32) met through a Northern Kentucky Chamber of Commerce committee meeting, they became engaged. Aaron got down on one knee at a local restaurant and proposed with a pear-shaped diamond halo ring. The couple worked with Your Special Day by Joni to put together a red and white Valentine’s Day wedding in 15 months. For them, PGA National Resort and Spa was an easy choice, as Courtney and Aaron have a shared love of golfing. The couple lined their waterfront Catholic ceremony with a red aisle runner alongside white folding chairs. After Courtney and Aaron said “I do,” their holiday celebration continued with an outdoor cocktail hour that included balsamic figs, mini lump crab cakes and truffle macaroni-and-cheese tarts. White linens atop family-style and round tables, white rose centerpieces and flameless candles on silver candlesticks decorated the indoor reception, where red-heart-accented table numbers pointed the couple's 82 guests to their seats. All enjoyed a duet entree of Barolo-braised short ribs and risotto before they were treated to a slice of the couple’s four-tier white wedding cake with a red fondant bow topper. For future couples, Courtney shares: “Enjoy the day. It goes by fast, so just take 30-second breaks and snap memories in your head! This is a day that will last a lifetime!”
