John and I met while out watching a Florida State University Vs. Clemson football game. Both being FSU alum, this commonality created for a night of us cheering on our team together and from that night on, we were inseparable. John popped the question on a remote Island off of Ft. Myers in front of both families.
When dress shopping, I must have tried 20+ gowns but I instantly started crying with joy when I put on the Mikaella #2016 dress.
On November 26th at 4 pm I walked down the aisle to John and we said our vows overlooking the bay between the Mahaffey and Dali Museum in Downtown St. Petersburg, FL. It was a beautiful November day and we couldn’t have asked for better weather and company. Our décor was clean white with splashes of gold with hints of champagne. We danced the night away with our family and friends, laid out the most scrumptious mini-donuts one has ever seen towards the end for guests to delight in, and finished off the evening with a sparkler send-off! We ended our time with them in downtown St. Petersburg under the Holiday Lights. It was a beautiful day all around and we couldn’t be happier with how everything turned out.
