Meet Kelly, Efren and the adorable Eli. We had the privilege of sharing Eli’s 1st birthday celebration with this awesome family. All eyes were on the little guy and he didn’t waste any time diving into his cake. Sit back and soak up the sweetness!
Interview with our beautiful bride:
HOW DID YOU MEET?
Ryan and I were introduced on a blind date by a friend of my dad’s the very first day that I moved to Florida!
HOW DID HE POP THE QUESTION?
He took me back to where we met, Marina Jacks. We had a nice dinner and then took a walk around the marina. Ryan suggested that we have someone take our picture and as we posed for the camera, he got down on one knee.
WHAT WAS YOUR WEDDING INSPIRATION?
We really wanted some kind of mansion on the water where we could have the ceremony and reception. There aren’t too many of those here in Florida, but we found the perfect place for us!
DESCRIBE SOME OF YOUR FAVORITE WEDDING DETAILS
I loved our cake topper. When I found it, I absolutely had to have it! Everyone that knows Ryan knows that fishing is his life, so it was perfect!
WHAT WAS YOUR FAVORITE PART OF YOUR WEDDING DAY?
Getting to marry my best friend was hands down the best part of the day. The party afterward wasn’t too shabby either.
HOW WAS YOUR EXPERIENCE WITH YOUR PHOTOGRAPHERS?
I would say it was an excellent experience, but we haven’t seen the pictures yet
WHAT ARE YOU LOOKING FORWARD TO MOST AS A MARRIED COUPLE?
I’m looking forward to growing together as a couple and learning from experiences together to become stronger then ever.
ANY ADVICE FOR FUTURE BRIDES?
Try not to let your nerves ruin any part of your day! It’s such an awesome day and when it comes down to it, you won’t notice anyone there; it’ll just be the two of you and nothing else will matter.
