Samantha Hickey is a native of Chicago and Ryan Wolkowicz is a native of South Carolina. Because of this distance, the couple knew finding a wedding location may be tricky. However, the two came up with a very simple solution- Amelia Island, Florida. Samantha grew up going to Amelia Island as a kid and Ryan would be able to be close to home in the south. After Amelia Island was chosen, the Ritz-Carlton seemed like the only option for venue. So, on Friday before the big day- the wedding party gathered together for an amazing rehearsal and rehearsal dinner. Enjoy some of my favorite pictures from the day below!
