The historic Palo Alto Plantation near Maysville, circa 1836-1840, provides the ideal backdrop for a romantic antebellum wedding. Steeped in Civil War history, this childhood home of former Gov. Daniel Russell, Jr. (1845-1908) is offered as a venue by Dream Makers Wedding Estates. To illustrate just how romantic the site can be, wedding coordinator Jessica Guesno brought together a collection of talented vendors to set the perfect scene for this photo shoot. Playing their roles are real life couple Lindsey Haynes, an EMT from Emerald Isle, and Capt. Chris Lewis from the Atlantic Beach Fire Dept., who are planning 2019 nuptials at the site.
