danielle + Paul Step Into the limelight | the don cesar | st. pete beach, fl
The Don Cesar is one of the most spectacular venues that host the greatest weddings. Danielle’s and Paul’s wedding did not fall short one single bit - simple, elegant and classic.
The couple met at grad school in Virginia in 2013 but did not start dating until 2015. After some time, Paul knew it was time to propose to the love of his life. The engagement ring was hidden in a sweatshirt that Paul bought for Danielle after taking her to dinner on a Wednesday night. The day of the week made it a surprise. The sweatshirt was an Army sweatshirt because Paul went to West Point and was taking Danielle to her first Army/Navy game. She said YES!
Danielle loves that Paul is protective, intelligent, and helpful to the point of making every situation feel easier to deal with. Paul loves that Danielle is easy to talk to, intelligent, and challenges him. Together, they enjoy working out, running, hiking, watching sports, traveling and of course, being together.
Danielle grew up in the Tampa area and has always loved St. Pete Beach and the Don Cesar. Most of Paul's family and friends and a lot of Danielle's extended family and friends live up north so they also thought it would be a great vacation weekend for everyone.
On the day of the wedding, Paul wore a midnight blue tux that was custom made for the wedding. Danielle wore a beautiful gown that had a moscato lining that shimmers in the light. The reception space was decorated with floral centerpieces, chandeliers and blue uplighting all around.
It was truly and honor to be part of such a gorgeous wedding, congratulations to the newly weds!
