From Limelight Photography:
Kristy and Phil travelled from Minnesota with their loved ones to celebrate love and happiness for their wedding day on the sunny West Coast of Florida. They selected The Grand Plaza Beach Resort because they love the ceremony site on the beach with the palm trees and the deck attached to the ballroom with a gorgeous view of the Gulf of Mexico.
This sweet couple met in August of 2015 through a friend after realizing that their moms already knew each other through the “People You May Know” feature on Facebook! They both love anything music-related (listening to music, going to concerts, etc.) so it is only fitting that Phil proposed at a Tim McGraw + Faith Hill concert. They share the same interests and goals; they love how they can always laugh together and have fun together no matter what they are doing. They truly make each other want to become the best version of themselves.
It touched Kristy’s heart how great Phil is with her son Bennett and they enjoy staying at home spending time as a family with their rescued lab-terrier mixed dog. They also love to cook, watch movies and travel together.
A very special aspect was incorporating a treasured family heirloom – Phil was gifted his deceased grandfather’s airplane pin to put on his tie. Also, they honored Phil’s grandparents’ Jewish heritage by the traditional breaking of a glass at the ceremony. Their wedding day was fun, beautiful and filled with laughter. It was casual yet classy..toes in the sand.
“Two little love birds shaking the dice on this thing called life; The beginning chapter to spending the rest of our lives together.”
