Marry You I Do
When Michigan native, Nate, met the lovely Ecuadorian Sarah on a business trip to Canada, he knew he had to make her his own. After getting to know them via video chats, I wrote a personal wedding ceremony for them, including ending with them jumping the broom into their future. This was only my second time writing a broom jumping and the couple was able to tell me exactly what that ritual meant to them and their union.
Loading up THE dress, their two best friends, and a decorated broom they drove to Florida.

Even an elopement needs a team of professionals! Southern Streams Ranch, Laura Davis Photography, and Marry You I Do came together to create this magical afternoon for them. The mini horses kept the couple and their friends amused while the gorgeous rustic venue in Thonotosassa prepared a steak dinner for them.

Nate & Sarah's
Taylor and Matt's
Romantic Day at
The Edison in Dade City
This sweet couple met at University of South Florida, outside of a class. Nick's opening line was "Why are you standing here?". . . . a line that was woven into their ceremony, both of their personal vows, and the reception. Added was a touch of Disney, as Caitlin looked the part of a princess.
The beautiful Crystal Ballroom North Tampa glowed almost as brightly as the couple's love. And with a beautiful harp playing, they combined their different cultures and faiths with a handfasting and the sweet twinkling of Irish wedding bells as they exited as a married couple. A memorable experience for Nick and his Caitlin AND their guests.
Photography was done by Photo Harp Weddings
Harp music before and during the ceremony plus cocktail hour was provided by Harpist Kristen Elizabeth.
Officiant Marry You I Do
They originally met at a party, Taylor, being somewhat shy, noticed Matthew was the life of the party. A great balance for each other, it wasn't long before they found themselves spending more and more time together.
Ten days before the wedding, Taylor graduated nursing school and took her State Boards for her Registered Nurse certification. After all, it wasn't like she had anything ELSE going on!
