Amanda and Brian - A Chic Country Club Wedding in Palma Ceia

Amanda and Brian originally met through mutual friends and continued to cross paths at various local bars, sporting events and social occasions, before unknowingly becoming neighbors! Fate was definitely pushing these two together, and it's easy to see why. After relocating to San Francisco for Brian's job, he planned a romantic candlelit proposal in their new west coast home, before beginning to plan their hometown nuptials in Tampa.
