Rebecca + Andrew Step Into The Limelight | Wyndham Grand Clearwater Beach | Clearwater Beach, FL

Rebecca & Andrew

{Their 𝓁𝑜𝓋𝑒 story}

Rebecca and Andrew met on a dating app of all places. Neither of them were really sure what would come from using such an app, but it quickly became the best surprise. Rebecca was a first year teacher, and Andrew was finishing his last year of school at the University of South Florida. When they first matched, the first thing Rebecca noticed was that Andrew played acoustic guitar. He complimented her right away on her eyes, and they quickly realized that they had the same sense of humor and that they both wanted to travel to the same places one day. They eventually agreed to grab dinner and drinks so that they could meet each other in person. The night of the first date, it was raining extremely hard outside. Rebecca has never been a big fan of driving, let alone in such nasty weather, and considered asking if they could reschedule for another day. The rain was also making her run a few minutes late, and she was so relieved and put at ease when Andrew called to say that he was going to be a little late as well (anyone who knows the couple knows that they still have this in common!). Rebecca walked into the bar first, drenched from the rain, and Andrew walked in just a moment later with a sweet smile on his face. The rest is history!

{The Proposal}

Andrew had recently returned from a two week trip to Australia & New Zealand that he went on for work. The couple had been wanting to go to one of their favorite restaurants on Clearwater Beach, and finally made plans to go one Saturday evening after a day of running errands. One of their favorite things to do is to walk the beach together, so they decided to take a stroll before getting dinner. Andrew seemed unusually upset about the fact that it had turned into a cloudy and windy evening, and Rebecca figured he just needed to eat (Andrew loves his food!). After a bit of walking, he asked Rebecca if she wanted a picture by the water and asked a woman who was sitting with her husband and children if she would mind taking one. At this point, Rebecca was definitely suspicious, because Andrew is not one to initiate a photo-op! He put his arm around her for a picture, and then suddenly took Rebecca's hands and started saying ALL the sweet things! The woman taking their picture was so surprised and excited to see Andrew get down on one knee, and the couple was otherwise alone on a quiet and secluded part of the beach. Their absolute favorite part of this story, is that after she said YES and they got a few pictures together- the gloomy clouds simply disappeared, revealing the most beautiful sunset that either of them had ever seen. Andrew and Rebecca got to sit in the sand and watch the sun go down together before sharing the news with their close friends and family. They went on a long cruise the following week where they were able to celebrate just the two of them ❤️

Stephanie + Jeff Step Into The Limelight | Marina Cantina | Clearwater Beach, FL

Stephanie + Jeff met at work in 2010. They started off as friends but couldn’t deny that they had a considerable amount of chemistry. After some time, they decided to take their friendship and develop it into a relationship. Stephanie was nervous at first because she is a “package deal.” It wasn’t just Stephanie that Jeff needed to win over, Jeff needed to win over her son Alex as well. Stephanie was so happy that Jeff was accepting of Alex and has become the most amazing father for him.

Stephanie + Jeff enjoy each others sharp sense of humor and love how they balance one another out. Jeff knows how to make Stephanie laugh and he always knows how to calm her down when she is stressed or feeling down. Likewise, Jeff loves how Stephanie can always pick him up when he is having a rough day. They love traveling together, cooking, eating, projects around the house, and watching “their shows.”

Jeff proposed to Stephanie in Chicago on the 95th floor of the John Hancock Building. They just finished their meal at The Signature Room when the fireworks display began, at the same time as the fireworks the staff came and brought Stephanie her favorite dessert (Creme Brûlée) and on the plate it said, “Will you Marry Me?”  

When deciding where to have their wedding Jeff and Stephanie knew it had to be in Florida. They both have a lot of amazing childhood memories here and it is a place both of them hold very near and dear to their hearts. Jeff and Stephanie came to Clearwater two years ago on vacation and absolutely loved it, they thought it would capture their laid back fun energy perfectly!

Congratulations on becoming husband and wife Stephanie + Jeff!

Keren + Josue Step Into The Limelight | Calvary Baptist Church Lakeland + Detroit Tiger Publix Field at Joker Marchant Stadium | Lakeland, FL

Josue and Keren met on christianmingle.com and became the best of friends.  Together they enjoy outdoor adventures such as the beach. They are very understanding of each others’ backgrounds as they have both been married before. They have done a great job at blending the family with lots of love and they both love to serve God. Josue proposed by a beautiful lake in Lakeland at a sunrise breakfast. Together they enjoy fine dining, movies and exercising together.

During their beautiful wedding ceremony, there was a violinist, a unity candle lit by the groom and bride’s mothers and the bride’s son walked the bride down the aisle. The groom has been a Detroit Tiger Chapel leader for 15 years and they offered to have their wedding there at the Tigers Baseball Stadium field. The reception was rustic, laid-back and kid friendly. Some of the couples’ favorite details include the cake, face painting, balloon twisting, popcorn, donuts, the photobooth and the singer in the reception. Their wedding was comfortable, relaxed and a fun time for everyone!
