On Saturday, September 27th I had the honor of officiating Christine and Marcelo’s Tallahassee wedding at Mission San Luis. And boy was it beautiful!!!!
“A visit to Mission San Luis transports you back to 1703. Your destination is a community where Apalachee Indians and newcomers from Spain lived together. In recognition of its historical significance, San Luis received designation as a National Historic Landmark in 1960. Today Mission San Luis is the only reconstructed Spanish mission in Florida. As a living history museum it is devoted to sharing the stories of its former Apalachee and Spanish residents. Knowledge of life at San Luis over three centuries ago comes from intensive archaeological and historical research—the site is the most thoroughly investigated mission in the southeastern United States.” From: http://www.missionsanluis.org/
I had communicated with Christine for many months coming up with her dream wedding ceremony. We planned to do a surprise for the moms. So on the day of the ceremony I was very excited to do this. At the beginning of the ceremony, I recognized the parents and thanked them on behalf of Christine and Marcelo then they gave each of their moms a rose. It was very very sweet. Christine and Marcelo also participated in a sand unity ceremony where they blended to colors of sand to signify their joining together as one.
Not only is Mission San Luis a wonderful place to work with and the staff is always amazing. They had a wonderful team of vendors setup to make sure their Tallahassee wedding at Mission San Luis went off without a hitch. Our friends at Amplify Entertainment were the djs and provided me with a great microphone so all the guests could hear the ceremony. Kate and Ashley with A Piece of Cake Event Planning were there helping everything go smoothly. They were super helpful with getting the ceremony going and everyone lined up.
Christine and Marcelo are big FSU fans and their wedding happen to fall on the FSU vs North Caroline game- which started at 3:30pm and their wedding was at 5:30pm. When I arrived FSU was losing (gasp!!) and I told them that after the wedding we’d be winning…and sure enough we won the game!!! So not only to I officiate wonderful weddings, I officiate weddings that make FSU win games 😉
If you looking for a great place with lots of options a Tallahassee wedding at Mission San Luis must be considered. I’ve officiated many weddings at Mission San Luis and there’s SO many locations to have the ceremony.
I loved being a part of Christine and Marcelo’s Tallahassee wedding at Mission San Luis. It was such a pleasure to get to know them and be their for them during such a happy moment. I wish them all the BEST!!!
