Say I do in the gulf waters

  • Posted on November 30, 2015 at 11:46 am

Beautiful morning, perfect breeze off the water, and blue skies.  What more could make your day what you dreamed? How about adding a rain storm for good luck right before the guests arrive and getting married in the gulf instead of the beach.  A day that could have been less than happy became and amazing, romantic and fabulous wedding celebration and photos and memories to talk about for a lifetime.

Inviting close family and friends, Kathy and Aaron married at the beautiful Lido Beach Resort in Sarasota FL.  Kathy chose the song, “Volcano” from Carnival Steel Drums, Hot,Hot, Hot volume to walk in to and they both exited to the song Hot, Hot, Hot.  Aaron had his brother Rick as his BM and Kathy had her dearist friend Joannie for her MOH.

Starfish tassels hung on the chairs and colors of light aqua blue tulle and white fabric was used on the Bamboo canopy. Rick wore a tan suit with turquoise vest and bow tie which blended perfectly with the decor colors.

There was the Lords prayer added to the beginning of the vows and readings of 1 Corinthians 13: 4-8 and Colossians 3:14-17 to complete the ceremony.  Both promising to pour God’s love into each other so that everyone can see his brilliance through them.

Congratulations Mr and Mrs Cichocki.  Many years of love and happiness.

Celebrating a new beginning

  • Posted on November 5, 2015 at 1:32 pm

With all the rain that came in July this year,  it put a damper on Tam and Robs special beach ceremony for August 7.  Tam stayed in great spirit and we ended up moving the ceremony to the Marriott Sand Key deck.   Using the Marriotts white trellis to decorate and improvising the rest of Tam’s decor selections,  she got to marry her best friend and love.  They thanked all for supporting them on their journey in becoming Mr and Mrs.  Tam also chose special songs in memory of her dad,  her sister and Rob’s parents that could only be there in spirit.

Tam picked a butter yellow and blush color tulle for the Bamboo Canopy now a White Trellis with starfish tiebacks & tied raffia.  Hanging lanterns filled with shells now hung on the chairs instead of on Sheppard hooks.  Tam walked in to Josh Groban, “To Where you are” and Tam and Rob exited to Billy Idol “White Wedding”.

Tams last email stated “pray  for some nice weather, I don’t care about the sunshine, just no rain”  Prayers were answered and Tam and Rob not only didn’t have to worry about rain but they got some beautiful sunshine.

Falling in love all over again

  • Posted on September 29, 2015 at 8:27 am

Chris and Melissa met in kindergarden which started their perfect 5 year old friendship and puppy love.  In 5th Grade they dated and became sweethearts.   Soon after graduating from school they went seperate ways. Many years later,     they ran into each other.   They started a friendship and then dating and Chris finally a year later popped the question. June 30th, 2015 they married on Clearwater beach.  Melissa wanted a simple set up with the 2 post bamboo and whimsical strand of starfish and added a heart drawn in the sand filled with fresh assorted rose petals.    They both wrote their own vows and added the “When 2 people fell In Love ” sign with their own sign “God gave me you” to hang on it.

N. Clearwater Beach, June 20th wedding

  • Posted on September 13, 2015 at 12:42 pm

Katy & her dad walked in to “Your Song” by Ellie Goulding.   She wore a halo crown of white flowers around her head and carried a bouquet of roses entwined with ivy.   Her daughter, Meadow and niece, Daniella wore flowing pale taupe colored dresses with halos matching the bride.  Brides  sister Kelly in a champaigne pink dress started the processional walking into  “Over the Rainbow” by Izzy.   At the end of the ceremony, the groom, Anthony got down on one knee and presented a ring to Katy’s daughter, Meadow.   The day was perfect until the groom lost his wedding ring in the sand and all scrambled in the sand praying for a miracle from above.  The man renting the house next to the site where his ring was lost was a pastor and came out and prayed.  The ring, after a while and a nice guy with a metal detector helped them out, was found.   All were relieved and loaded back up on the Trolly for a night of celebration at the Marriott.      CONGRATS TO THE NEW MR. & MRS. MCANINEY!
