CAROL ANN + ARNIE STEP INTO THE LIMELIGHT
ST. RAPHAEL'S CATHOLIC CHURCH + THE BIRCHWOOD | ST. PETERSBURG, FL 

What an amazing time we had with Carol Ann and Arnie here in the city of St. Pete. Our day started out at St. Raphels Catholic Church where the beautiful Ann and handsome Arnie got ready for their big day. Carol Ann wore a stunning dress with laced train and sleeves while Arnie wore a classic black suit with a red bow tie. The catholic ceremony was classic and tradition and had the sweetest moment between the two. They could not stop smiling at each other! Once they said their I-Do’s, the newly wed and all their guests had an elegant and timeless reception dinner at The Birchwood. The reception room was filled with red and white roses with black linens that added just the right amount of contrast. The cake and sweetheart table were also full of natural floral and different sized candles.

Carol Ann and Arnie’s love story began about 2 years ago when they fist met each other at a Catholic Matching website. Their seemlier interests and faith in the Lord brought them close and while on a Royal Caribbean cruise on New Years, Arnie proposed. A couple months later,  The Birchwood, which was where they first dined together, would be the perfect place to celebrate their love towards each other.

Very happy for this wonderful and sweet couple. Congratulations to the new Mr. and Mrs!
