Our Wedding

If you are anything like me, you love looking at wedding photos. Now it is my turn to share my big day with all of you.

Marcus and I were married on March 20,2011 at the Powel Crosley Estate in Sarasota, Florida. The mansion is located directly on Sarasota Bay, catching all of the amazing sunsets. We had the most amazing, sunny day, with highs in the low 80′s. It was perfect.

Our wedding party was filled with all of our best friends. Since Marcus and I have been together since high school, we share the same friends, so picking our wedding party was a no brainer. They are the best!

Our ceremony was held in the backyard of the estate, right up against the house, with the reception to be held in the same area, once the chairs were cleared. While everyone else walked around from the side of the house, I ascended down the stairs, and caught all of out guests by surprise. It was surely my moment!

Then my dad proceeded to pick me up, and take me down the aisle to give me away…

We shared our first kiss

And we were married!

We danced to “You are the Best Thing” by Ray LaMontagne for our first dance. It was choreographed and everything. Learning this dance with Marcus was one of my favorite parts of preparing for the wedding!

And then here are a few little details that I love, and want to share!

       

          

My family was the best throughout the whole wedding process. We had a lot of fun planning, and celebrating all together on the wedding day. Thanks for all that you did! You guys are the best!

One of the best part of the wedding, added at the last minute, was a photo booth handled by our photographer, Scott Purks. He and his wife came up with the idea, and really made it shine. Some of the photographs that came from the booth are my favorite of the entire wedding. The smiles and laughs on everyone’s faces really made the night come to life!
