Staci + Juan Step Into The Limelight | Carrollwood Country Club | Tampa, FL

Staci + Juan met through Myspace in 2008, when Juan was commenting on her pictures and trying to message her. She eventually decided to message him back and that was how they realized they went to the same school. Staci was a freshmen and Juan was a sophomore. They became really close friends and Staci always knew that he really liked her, but it took her longer to get there. Eventually she ended up developing a huge crush on him. They decided to date, but it didn’t last as Staci moved and went to a different high school for her sophomore year. They lost touch until they ran into each other while attending college and that’s where their friendship picked right back up where they left it. They remained friends for a while until Juan told Staci that he loves her and he has for a very long time. Juan then told her that no one could ever treat Staci as well as he would and no one could ever love her as much as he does. 

They began to date on March 12, 2013 and have been together ever since. On a very cold Christmas Day in 2016, Juan + Staci were up in the mountains spending time with Juans’ family when they decided to go outside for a hike. They stopped for a moment to enjoy the view and were discussing how beautiful the scenery was and how much fun they were having together. Juan told Staci that “nothing could ever be more beautiful to him than me”…at that moment he took a knee and asked Staci to spend the rest of her life with him.

There are so many things that Staci + Juan love about one another and that even after five years they continue to find new things to love. Staci loves how goofy they are together, and how vulnerable they can be with one another. They are never afraid to express themselves or to be open and honest with one another about anything. However, their most absolute favorite thing is watching one another be parents to their daughter Kendall. Staci loves how much Juan loves their little girl and how he is THE BEST DAD EVER!

Congratulations Staci, Juan, + Kendall!

On a beautiful day on the beach celebrating the 4th of July these two met. This pairing was a God-send. During the ceremony it was noted that Tina had been looking for someone that was spiritual as Nick was. They were drawn to each other and Nick said this upon their first look ‘I got butterflies all over again like I did the first day we met’ WOW! That moment really set the day! It was a busy one, but between all that they managed to take in moments and enjoy this day that they were bringing a family together. Their son Theo was able to walk down the aisle towards his daddy to make way for his mother escorted by her mother. Although it was a windy day, it was also a beautiful one! We loved the coral and creams that flowed with spring time, but we loved more Tina and Nick. They were so kind with so much flare! These two were hand-picked by God for sure, you can see it by their love and respect for each other, for Theo and all of their family and friends who joined in their celebration!

We just loved these two and here are a few favorites from their big day!
