The Best Day – One Couple’s Wedding

Amelia & Jeremy Tucker

Married on 5/14/11

Ceremony and Reception at The Cummer Museum

Jeremy and I both grew up in Jacksonville and we both took field trips The Cummer as children. When we were deciding on a venue, we really thought the Cummer would be a beautiful place to get married that was close to home. Not to mention it is, by far, the most gorgeous venue in Jacksonville, hands down. The day of our wedding was rainy right up until an hour before the ceremony. Even when it was raining everything was absolutely beautiful.

The Cummer is really one of Jacksonville’s hidden gems to outsiders. If you haven’t lived in Jacksonville for long, you probably don’t know of the museum. The Cummer’s art collection and gardens could both stand alone, but complement each other beautifully. Our guests couldn’t stop talking about it. Many who were out of town, couldn’t believe they hadn’t ever heard of the Cummer, and the locals also saw the Cummer in a whole new light.

The staff is wonderful and I never had any issues with contacting and clarifying details. It was everything we wanted our wedding to be and more. The experience was phenomenal. Thank you!

The flowers and decor at this wedding were designed by Aime Peterson Flowers and Events.
