Amanda & Tom | Mission San Luis Wedding

Tom was with friends enjoying dinner at a Dallas restaurant.  His friends recognized other friends in the same restaurant and decided to take the gang over to say ‘Hi”.

Tom saw the smile before he saw the girl.  Radiant.

He was smitten and asked Miss Amanda for a date.

Their first date!  He was going to make it remarkable and memorable.  Going to show Amanda the town and cater to her like a princess.

That date ended with Tom on the couch and Amanda nursing him back to health by feeding him potstickers.    Tom had a touch of low blood sugar.

Best first date story ever.  But it worked because these two were married last week in Tallahassee!

Million Dreams of Love

“She’s got a light around her.
And everywhere she goes, a million dreams of love surround her.”

Rachel & Michael

Rachel, a little girl that dreamed of castles, fairies and glass slippers.

The Disney weekend that she had planned was finally here!  She was going to experience this magical land with her Prince Charming, Michael.

Once they got in, Michael decided that he needed to eat before any rides so that he would feel his best.

They ended up at the Castle to see if there were any cancellations.  Sure enough, somehow, Michael’s name made it on the reservation system and Rachel was ecstatic.

Seated at the best seat in the house, overlooking Fantasy Land, every Princesses came by to say hello and asked Rachel if she found her Prince Charming.

When dessert arrived it came in a covered platter.  Rachel lifted the lid to find a glass slipper in a bed of roses.

Michael went to one knee and asked his Princess to marry him in front of the entire restaurant.

Lacy & Warren

They both were pole vaulters for Florida State University.

Warren noticed Lacy way before she took notice of him.   Using his smarts and charming smile, he asked her out… and she said yes.

Many dates later, they watched the sun rise at the beach of Bald Point.  That same day, they watched the sun set on the balcony of Level 8 in Tallahassee.

Dinner was at Bella Bella.  Dessert was chocolate strawberries under the stars.

Lying on their backs, soaking in the night beauty, Warren got up on one knee and asked Lacy to marry him.
