And so, I’ve somehow stumbled upon day two of our three-day shoot at the Ritz-Carlton, Amelia Island. Our day’s coverage began with a wonderful (and fancy) taco and smoothie bar experience at the adjacent Golf Club of Amelia Island. From there, the plan had been to explore the rich history of the Island’s back streets and inland waterways, but afternoon thunderstorms changed those plans! Thankfully, the team at the Ritz was ready with some great back-up activities, like the Cupcake Wars event you see above.
By early evening, the storms had moved offshore and the group was treated to a wonderful ocean-side dinner at the AAA Five Diamond restaurant, Salt. But before dinner, the guests were treated to a special tasting of over 20 exotic salts from all over the world. The night was far from over after dinner – the Ritz-Carlton has a special surprise in store for the group – a beach-side fireworks display that would rival many town’s 4th of July celebrations! Add to that an after party with amazing candies, desserts, and a 3-foot tall chocolate sculpture, and you have one full day! Enjoy the photos!
