A bit late but guests start arriving,  the groom and party look handsome as they great the guests.  Line up begins and music starts playing Arioso by Bach.  The bridal party has all chosen their own dresses in different colors of purples, blue and lavenders.  Time for the bride to make her entrance.   She has chosen Canon in D by The O’Neill Brothers,  rose petals in different colors of  white, pinks and purples line her aisle as she starts to walk with her dad bringing her to her big grinning groom.

The ceremony was beautiful and this bride and groom only saw each other.   The beach wedding that they wanted was now in the past and it was only about the 2 of them and a new life as husband and wife.    Their day was truly perfect and magical, christened with rain by God to seal their new marriage.

Congratulations to a beautiful couple, we are wishing a lifetime of happiness and health.     God Bless!


Anna Maria Wedding Cake Place

  • Posted on August 21, 2013 at 1:26 pm

I just had to blog this place that I found while touring the streets of Anna Maria Island.  We had just finished a wedding and decided to stay and visit the area so we could have a better understanding of where to do weddings on the beach there.   That is when I found this little store off the side of the road in a small and quaint street.  “Hometown  Desserts”, has the most delicious Keylime with Coconut Cake that I have ever tried.  And the coconut macaroons with chocolate drizzle would make a really great “take me home gift” for all your guests.  Of course they have much more to choose from, but brides, if you want your guests to remember your wedding cake, and you happen to be having a wedding in the Anna Maria/ Holmes Beach area, this is your place!!

Amy and Simon’s Wedding at Anna Maria Island

  • Posted on August 7, 2013 at 8:27 am

Amy and Simon were married at the beautiful Anna Maria Island on June 1, 2013. They rented out The Beach House restaurant which has a patio that opens up to a beautiful white sandy beach, which made a perfect location for their ceremony. Both Amy and Simon traveled from Ontario to Florida and were joined by guests from Australia as well as the local area. Everything came together perfectly for their special day.
