Joe and Brittany have a very cute love, and Joe easily showed it. He admitted he doesn’t normally get emotional, but it was obvious he was thrilled to be marrying Brittany. It was quite a treat to spend the day with this pair. Their wedding was beyond a perfect summer day. Not too hot, not too humid, it was nice & breezy, which didn’t matter much since we spent most of the day inside. The vendors, namely John Gandy’s team, made sure the event went off without a hitch. Everything came together, and it was quite memorable.
The reception was set up to be indoor & outdoor. With bands in both areas, a strolling supper (in & out), tents, beautiful lighting (japanese lanterns & globe lighting inside). There were a lot of Italian traditions that were followed. A cookie/pastry cake, the italian money dance, italian cuisine, and Brittany wore green the entire day preceding the wedding for good luck. They are going to need luck in a household divided, Brittany & family are die hard Florida Gators while Joe attended FSU and loves his football. You can see a bit of their rivalry at their engagement session.
I really hope these two have a great time on their honeymoon in St. Lucia!

Joe thinking about the day ahead.
I love Brittany’s face here while she was getting her hair done. And make-up by the always wonderful Randi Buchanan.
Look at that smile on Brittany’s face as her dress was being zipped up. The excitement was contagious.
The centerpieces were mostly different, they thought of everything even the mouth wash in the bathroom (kissable breath), coozies, & monogrammed bar napkins
Outdoor they had a patio set up under tents with Japanese lanterns, monogrammed pillows, and what looked like a very yummy Arnold Palmer already made
Katie’s cakes & an Italian Cookie Cake
The trolley ride was quite a treat for the bridal party & parents as always!
