Before the Wedding …
How did you two meet? We met at a local bar called The Daiquiri Deck located on Siesta Key. We both were immediately interested and it was apparent by the fact that we couldn’t take our eyes off each other. Nelson introduced himself and I knew he was special and different from everyone else I had met in the past. Since the night we met we have lived the most wonderful love story together.
How did he propose? It was aboard the Allure of the Sea after a wonderful day of sailing in St Marten. The sun would be setting soon to Nelson navigated to a private sun deck with me, which was quite an adventure. When we arrived at the deck the sun setting in a bed of red, pink, and purple clouds. The sunset was mesmerizing and so were the words coming from Nelson’s lips. He lowered to one knee and expressed his love to me in the most beautiful and sweet words. Of course I said, “YES”.
How did you decide on your color scheme, flowers, and cake? The knot and pinterest had wonderful ideas.
How did you decide on your invitations, and who did you use? We like the Damask print and used Paper Diva for our invitations
