Sarah's mom reached out to me over a year ago to tell me about her daughter's wedding. She was excited about helping to plan it and we set up a meeting in April for when they came down to visit. Sarah spent a busy few days seeing different vendors but by the time she went home, her plan was in place.
More than 30 family and friends flew into Florida for the Christmas holiday. I met them again the day before the ceremony to walk through our final details. The wedding was taking place on Englewood Beach. Instead of a traditional arch, they chose a cross with flowers to celebrate her father. Her mother and grandfather walked her down the aisle where she beamed looking into Tom's face. They had a traditional ceremony with singers, readings, prayers and vows. Thirty minutes later, in front of God and family, they became husband and wife. We spent time at the beach taking family portraits and couples photos before moving the celebration across the street to the Waverly.
The party continued as dinner was served and DJ Steve Ash got the dance floor rocking. The night wouldn't have been complete without their sparkler exit and they drove off to their suite to start their lives together.
