Country Western Wedding in Lithia Florida

Country Western Wedding in Lithia Florida


Not all Florida weddings are at a beach or park. George Sr. officiated Brandon and Carly’s country western wedding in Lithia Florida at The Chat ‘N’ Chew on November 8th. Just like the name sounds it is a rustic lodge western style venue. Chat ‘N’ Chew is located on a beautiful 70 acre property nestled by shady oak trees. George Sr. said it was out in the middle of nowhere, but commented on how pretty it was. The ceremony was outside under the trees and a fun western reception followed inside Chat ‘N’ Chew.

As George Sr. was walking into the venue he almost stepped right on a nice big cow paddy. He had to laugh! Can’t get more country than this in Florida.

Watch your step! Hah!

Watch your step! Hah!

The guests were all wearing jeans, boats, and cowboy hats. George Sr. and the wedding party were the only ones in formal attire. It was a very nice wedding and it looked like they had a fun reception planned after the wedding.

Carly and Brandon wanted a simple ceremony. Brandon wore a grey suit with a red rose boutonnière that matched the flowers in Carly’s bouquet. Carly looked so pretty wearing a white sleeveless gown and carrying a small bouquet of fall colored flowers.

Carly and Brandon thanked George Sr. for a wonderful ceremony, and appreciated him performing the ceremony.

St. Pete Beach Wedding

St. Pete Beach Wedding


It was a gorgeous day on Sunday morning for Marissa & Mike’s St. Pete Beach wedding. After a wash out day on Friday & rain off-and-on Saturday, we were all so happy to see a beautiful sunny day on Sunday.  The wedding was at Grand Plaza Resort in St Pete Beach.


The Grand Plaza is a great place for St. Pete Beach wedding ceremony and reception.

The ceremony was on the white sandy beach between two palm trees. They had white folding chairs for guests and had a beautifully decorated white arch with mango colored flowers. Marissa colors were mango and white. Bridesmaids wore knee length mango dresses carried bouquets with white and mango colored flowers. Marissa even had her nail tips painted in mango color. The men were casually dressed for a beach wedding. Mike had white slacks and a black Florida print shirt and the groomsmen were wearing white slacks with mango and black print shirts. The ring bearers also had matching Florida print shirts and beige slacks.

Marissa and I had been corresponding for months in preparing her perfect St. Pete Beach wedding ceremony. After so many months of online correspondence it was so nice to finally meet her. She wanted a sand ceremony and to have their two children participate in blending of the sands. They each had a different color and bottles were placed on white table under the arch.

Her father would be giving her away. Marissa was very thorough and paid attention to all the details in her ceremony; and I could see she was with all her wedding preparations.


They were having a reception in the Presidential Ball Room at the Grand Plaza. The Ball Room is way up 20th floor overlooking the ocean. It’s a gorgeous gorgeous view especially for a day time wedding.

Marissa sent me a message on Monday saying, “Thank you sooo much for your kind help. You were fantastic and a true professional.”
