Robyn and Andrew had been engaged for so long that their friends and family started asking them "so when are you guys getting married??" and after fielding the question long enough, they decided to throw an engagement party to announce their wedding date to their closest friends and family. Little did their guests know that the engagement party, scheduled for April 1st (April Fool's Day), would be revealed as their actual wedding day! The result was an incredibly unique and stylish SURPRISE wedding that the couple pulled off without a hitch!
When Jonathan proposed to Christina, he had just finished a 28 hour day of his residency, and secretly drove to the Kennedy Center to drop off a special bottle of wine for their date that evening. During dinner on the rooftop terrace, Jonathan ordered a bottle of wine and the server presented the special bottle. Jonathan turned the bottle to face Christina, revealing special dates and milestones etched on the label, and then got down on one knee and popped the question. Swoon! The couple knew they wanted their wedding to be set in Tampa (the city where they met) and wanted to provide a unique experience that also incorporated wine elements as a nod to their engagement.
Lindsay and Jason are from Ohio but have a sentimental attachment to Florida and Siesta Key. They met through an adult kickball league, and Lindsay once said "Our relationship can be described as a friendship that blossomed into love." Her family vacationed to Siesta Key for over 20 years and had a family tradition to all go out and watch the sunset together every night. One year on vacation Jason proposed in front of her family on the beach at sunset; so their signature drink, the Siesta Key Sunset, was created in honor of that beautiful proposal story. The couple love being outside and around nature, so an outdoor wedding full of natural details was an obvious choice for them.
Kelly and Peter's beautiful, Palma Ceia wedding was filled with tradition and elegance, from their nuptials at their family church, to their reception at their Golf & Country Club. Classic details were balanced with pops of color, with shades of dusty blue, peach, and cranberry, which somehow seemed to also appear in the amazing sunset photos on the greens!
Yi-Hwa and Felix took time to establish themselves professionally before getting married on 11/11/11. They decided they wanted a truly unique affair and included elements like a Polynesian style buffet with Polynesian dancers and fire breathers; during cocktail hour were animal encounters which featured a python, baby alligator, and barn owl! An Asian influence found throughout the wedding, as a nod to the bride's culture, was combined with offbeat elements to create this fun and unique event.
