A Military Wedding in St. Augustine, Florida

A couple of high school sweethearts—who reunited after parting ways post-graduation—exchange wedding vows at the oldest Catholic parish in the U.S.

Two years after James proposed, the couple wed in an elegant July affair in front of 90 guests. Their St. Augustine, Florida wedding was "classic with a Spanish touch," the bride says, with a navy and gold color palette. Photo: Brooke Images
