Tying the knot for Lindsey and her “Smooch” as she adorably calls Anthony is 6 years in the making. Both warm, committed, with the same political affinity, family-oriented and hailing from Tampa; these two are a match made in heaven. After the engagement, while on the planning stage of their wedding day; they had a joyful surprise and learned that they will be having a baby. A little adjustment was in order, but the wedding train happily went on.
Fast forward to “The day”, it started with the wedding preparation, the bride with her make-up, surrounded by family and close friends. The calm on her face and the quiet joy reflected with the glow captured on her pictures. The groom looked nervous and excited while getting ready with his merry group of men for the last time as a single guy.
Top favorite moment: the first time Anthony saw Lindsay wearing her wedding dress for the prenuptial photo shoot, the smile that broke onto Anthony’s face was priceless. It was an emotional moment for the two and you can feel the sincere love from the two. Paradise Cove was a beautiful backdrop of greenery, white sandy beach and cypress trees that surely will be a memory to remember.
It was a busy day ahead and after the prenuptial shoot, the groom together with his entourage rode an unconventional ride via boat to the ceremony for the much-awaited marriage vows. The men wore gray suits and the women in red dresses which made a striking contrast. The flower girls in white and ring bearers in tiny bow ties made a charming addition to the entourage. Lindsey entered, radiant as she walked down the aisle towards Anthony with her father a symbol support and blessing for his daughters’ marriage. It was a simple and beautiful wedding ceremony, full of soft smiles and heartfelt pleasure.
The wedding reception was held at the Paradise Cove Pavilion, it has a rustic feel, complete with twinkling lights. The arrangement had a relaxed yet sophisticated atmosphere with the entire wedding assembly joining in the games and dancing that made for a fun party. What made it special though are the memories made that night by the bride dancing with her father, the groom with his mother, the heartfelt speech that leads credence to the newlywed’s great character and the laughter shared. The celebration closed with the husband and wife sailing towards their honeymoon.
Congratulations Lindsey and Anthony on your lovely wedding and your beautiful baby girl! I wish your family good health and happily ever after!
