From The Bride:
We met at my best friends graduation party when I was 15 years old. We started dating later in high school, Taylor is my first true love. He is the most loving, caring, kind person I have ever come across.. He treats me and loves me with the most respect. I am truly lucky and thankful to call him mine! I think I truly fell for him when I saw how he treated my parents and family.
I planned my wedding within 6 months, it was budget friendly. I live in Atlanta, GA and my wedding was held in Panama city, FL. We wanted a destination wedding because we love the beach and we wanted a smaller wedding, 100 people.
I have a lot of talented friends so we did a whole lot of DIY, for example, the cake(s) were homemade, we did the flower arrangements (including corsages and boutonniere), chalk signs, centerpieces, the dj was a friend etc.. My girls even did my hair and makeup! All of the gifts to the bridesmaids and groomsmen were purchased on etsy or they were made locally (panama city beach). The wedding favors were delicious smelling candles and they were made by a local business (https://www.facebook.com/sweetbaycandlellc/). I love to support local businesses and artists. My wedding was very “non-traditional” in a way, somewhat bohemian, very laid-back and very happy.. no stress!!!!!!!! My planning was also very blissful thanks to the help of Jessica Giordano. She is amazing. She is the group coordinator for Sheraton Bay Point. I will never ever regret having my special occasion held there .
