Sarah and Joel met years ago through a mutual friend.  This mutual friend Debbie ended up having the special job of marrying this beautiful couple on their wedding day. 

Joel once professed his love to Sarah by folding a thousand and one paper cranes that when lit up through the middle shows their names linked with a heart.  I mean, 1,001 PAPER CRANES…How sweet is that?  So lining the aisle where Sarah would walk down to marry her love, were several clear vases with the paper cranes of all colors in them.  There were many personal details from their time together… such as the pig statue they were awarded for being the first and only proposal at a yearly gathering,  a compass with the coordinates of the park where Joel proposed and a silver ring box that held the beautiful engagement ring that belonged to Joel’s grandmother, which also has the coordinates engraved. So many sweet and beautiful details for such a sweet and beautiful couple.

Their ceremony and reception took place right in front of the large tank at the Florida Aquarium, the room is lit softly with the glow of the water tank filled with fish, sharks and stingrays as the backdrop.  At the end of the ceremony they were greeted by two penguins, which stuck around for pictures with the bride and groom, wedding party and family after the ceremony.

Sarah and Joel had a wonderful night with their family and friends with dinner, dancing, cake and a photo booth.

Congratulations Sarah and Joel, what an amazing day for an amazing couple!!
