JENNIFER AND BEN FEATURED IN THE LIMELIGHT | ST. JOHN VIANNEY CATHOLIC CHURCH AND THE CLUB AT TREASURE ISLAND | ST. PETERSBURG, FL

We had the wonderful pleasure of joining this pretty couple on a very, blue, clear-skied December day. Ben and Jennifer’s love story begins about five years ago when they met each other at work. After about three years, they reconnected and officially began dating and Ben eventually proposed with a surprise cake. Fast forward to December of 2017 and we find them here in the Treasure Island area saying their I Do’s inside St. John’s Catholic Church where they had such a beautiful ceremony which was then followed by a fun reception where their friends and family could celebrate the night away along with the couple. Ben and Jennifer, so happy for the both of you, Congratulations!!!

Stephanie and Billy met six years on and went on their first date to Clearwater Beach. Billy proposed right at home in their kitchen!

GABRIELLE AND BRYAN FEATURED IN THE LIMELIGHT | SOUTHERN HILLS PLANTATION CLUB | BROOKSVILLE, FL

 

Gabrielle and Bryan were married in a beautiful and romantic candlelit ceremony and reception at the Southern Hills Plantation Club in Brooksville, FL!  Dreams of Iceland were what inspired this amazing couple to have a whimsical and romantic nightime ceremony surrounded by candle and twinkle lights. They chose music by an Icelandic composer and the bridesmaids carried candles instead of flowers to create the feeling of a secret garden.  The bride wanted her guests to be transported to a different place and to not feel like they were in Florida.  The ambiance created by the glowing light added that soft and romantic feeling to their whole wedding day!  Gabrielle chose an elegant wedding dress that was absolutely stunning on her and fit the theme of their romatic wedding perfectly.  The lace design, open back and multiple layers in the skirt were whimsical, soft and romantic!  The reception was beautiful and intimate and lavish with hand selected brass and copper candleabras and flowers.  It was such a pleasure to work with this wonderful couple on their amazing wedding day!  Congratulations to the new Mr. and Mrs. O’Neal!.

AMY AND RICH FEATURED IN THE LIMELIGHT | SANDPEARL RESORT | CLEARWATER BEACH, FL

Amy and Richard met the second week of February of 2015 at a gathering of mutual friends. They didn't start dating right away. It took about 8 months of running into each other on a regular basis to decide to take the leap! This sweet couple was out for a normal Friday "date night" at their favorite restaurant. What Amy didn't know was that Rich had planned with the owner to send them a special desert! He surprised her with a proposal and a "hidden" ring.

Amy + Rich love to entertain their friends and family. They love to do anything outside (especially in the warm weather), be it swimming, going to the beach, hiking. They love going to the movies and a nice dinner and concerts. 

Amy: “I love how passionate, loyal and devoted Rich is. He is my best friend. I love how he makes me want to be a better person. He challenges me to pursue my passions. He loves the children. We have mutual trust and respect. I can be myself around him. He never judges me. He always a has my back and will always stand up for me and my honor. I feel like the most beautiful woman when he looks at me. I love that he gets emotional when he listens to music. He is sensitive and caring. When I am with him, I feel like my heart is being hugged.”

Rich: “I love how strong and driven Amy is. She is smart and well spoken. She is the total package. A great mom and a true friend. I knew very early on that she believed in me and I could feel her support. I love that she gets me even when she doesn't get me. I love her family and the boys. She is beautiful in and out. THE woman I want to spend the rest of my life with. Period.

They found the perfect spot in their favorite part of Florida, just minutes from where they usually stay when visiting. Mom, Susan, recommended The Sandpearl and the rest is history! This modern, romantic, sandy, beach cocktail, paradise wedding celebration was a perfect mix of friends and family celebrating their divinely inspired union and a weekend they will not soon forget. 

The ceremony was a highlight of the day, and their inter-faith and spiritual elements of their union were very unique and personal to the couple. But on a deeper level, they believe their union is one. Their guests have been wishing for each of them and in many cases, they themselves have been witness to from the very beginning. This union truly was bigger than just Amy and Richard.

The reception was a blast; a very memorable weekend that many felt a part of rather then merely spectators. Each guest surely felt blessed, loved and included. First, last and always!
