Love was in the air on Valentine’s Day!!

It was a gorgeous day for so many wonderful weddings and vow renewal ceremonies that were celebrated on Valentine’s Day 2016.

Tasha and Delisa had a morning wedding ceremony at Straub Park in St Petersburg.  Tasha and Delisa invited guests for a brunch style reception at the park. After the wedding they served  pastries, donuts, juices, and champagne.  Tasha and Delisa were so full of life and love! They have been together for seven years and couldn’t wait to be married. It was a real treat to officiate their Valentine’s Day wedding ceremony.

The next ceremony Valentine’s Day celebration was for a 10 year vow renewal. Leah and Michael were celebrating their 10 year wedding anniversary on Valentine’s Day. They drove from Virginia and were travelling down the coast of Florida vacationing. George Sr and I met them at Crystal Beach for the ceremony. I officiated  a 10 year vow renewal ceremony and George Sr took photos. This was like a honeymoon trip for them. They left their three children at home and were just enjoying sometime to themselves. After the ceremony they were going to dinner at one of our favorite restaurants Maggiano’s in Tampa.

George Sr. and I continued to Land O Lakes where I officiated a wedding ceremony for Michelle and Robert. The ceremony was on the dock at their home overlooking the lake. Michelle wore a pretty wedding dress that had just a touch of light pink accenting the color. Friends and family were invited to a nice backyard reception.

Our final Valentine’s Day wedding ceremony was with Jason and Yilan.  The wedding was at Palma Sola Botanical Gardens in Bradenton. Jason and Yilan wanted the ceremony to be on a bridge overlooking the gardens. I made a pretty rose petal heart on the bridge. Family members stood to the side and officiated their wedding ceremony. George Sr took photos overlooking the lake, in the gazebo, and wherever they wanted pictures taken. The greenery of the gardens and the delightful weather made a perfect setting for a beautiful wedding.
