Rachael + Nick Step Into The Limelight | The Don Cesar | St. Petersburg, FL

Rachael and Nick met in my Junior year of college. Rachael was in school for by BSN in Fort Lauderdale and Nick was on an internship for golf in Kendall Florida. They love going to sport events, mostly baseball games, hockey and football. The proposal came as a complete surprise. They had season tickets to Saint Louis Cardinal's spring training games and Nick got extra tickets to go on the field and in the dugout Nick got someone to film the whole thing. It was spectacular!

Rachael and Nick had always wanted to have their wedding on the beach so having it at the Don Cesar was definitely the perfect place to say their I Do’s. Their ceremony was beautifully decorated with floral and an arch that set just the right romantic mood for the couple. The day was gorgeous with the sky full of clouds. This made for some dramatic photos of the couple right before they went inside their reception room to celebrate the night away.

Carolynn + Kendrix Step Into The Limelight | The Don CeSar Hotel | St. Petersburg, FL

Kendrix + Carolynn’s story started three years ago when Kendrix kept “liking” Carolynn’s photos on instagram. She finally decided it was time to meet him so she walked right into the surf shop that Kendrix owned in Channelside and they immediately fell in love.

They love so many things about one another…how they make each other laugh, how they parent together, are able to motivate and encourage each other, the ability to put all of their trust into one another, and how similar their life goals and values are.

Carolynn + Kendrix’ favorite way of spending time together involves playing basketball and football. They even had an awesome basketball themed cake topper to top their wedding cake! Even though they love sports, there was nothing else sporty about their romantic black and white wedding. Carolynn + Kendrix’ wedding was so emotional, it was so hard to hold back the tears as we watched them come together to exchange their vows. You could feel how happy Carolynn + Kendrix felt to finally become one and you could also feel how proud their family was!

Congratulations Carolynn + Kendrix, Mr + Mrs Jones at last!
