rusty pelican wedding: cassie + jonathan

With wide smiles and intertwined fingers, they walked slowly through the tunnel of their loved ones. And as the bubbles surrounded them, some popping and some illuminating with a rainbow of colors as the nearby light filled them, they looked at each other with so much love and excitement in their eyes before he pulled her in for one last kiss.Their wedding day was over but their adventure was just beginning . . . . . .

Cassie and Jonathan are married! On a sunny Florida afternoon they said their vows in a waterside ceremony on the lawn of The Rusty Pelican. Cassie wore the most lovely lace-accented dress and classic heels, and looked SO incredibly stunning it was easy to see why Jonathan smiled so big as she walked down the aisle towards him. The two of them met working at Disney, so it was so perfectly fitting that their ceremony included tons of Disney references (including Sarah’s favorite Beauty and the Beast!) and everyone in attendance couldn’t help but smile as their pastor sang “there must be something there that wasn’t there before  . . .”

We loved that the focus of this day felt so much about the two of them and the family surrounding them (with each of their siblings standing by their sides during the ceremony).

Their wedding was also full of so many adorable kiddos, but it definitely had to be the bible and ring bearers that stole the show! We just loved their suspenders (and of course Ben fan-boyed over the teeny bowties!). At the end of their reception guests took home Krispy Kreme doughnuts (can we just say YUM?!) and then headed outside to say goodbye to the couple with a bubble-filled exit.

Cassie + Jonathan, we couldn’t adore you two anymore and feel so lucky to know you both! Thank you for not only inviting us to document your wedding day, but for making us feel like such an important part of it! We’ve loved getting to know you both and hope to see you next time you’re down this way for hockey!

Love + Laughs,

Sarah & Ben
