Sometimes the one that you are meant to be with can be right next to you for years without you even knowing it. This was the case with Sarah and Dave. Dave, along side of his brother owned a restaurant, and Sarah, while attending college worked at this establishment. For the next two and a half years she worked there, for the man that she would eventually marry. The irony of this is that it took Sarah leaving the restaurant to pursue her career for Dave to finally be able to ask her out. Maybe for Dave, the girl of his dreams leaving his restaurant was the best thing that could have happened to him. When Sarah came to pick up her last check, this time not as an employee but as a friend, Dave asked her out. Thankfully she said yes and so the story goes. But this story doesn’t end with the couple riding off into the warm Florida sunset, this is where it begins.
Sarah told me that she found one of my recent weddings on Style Me Pretty and liked my work. I’m so thankful that she did. Sarah got in touch with me and with her sweet warm voice told me that her, Dave and 18 of their close friends and family were going to escape the cold Michigan weather and come to Florida for their destination wedding. These two were amazingly nice, kind and totally in love. Some very good qualities if you ask me. Their wedding was at the Grand Bohemian Orlando, on the rooftop, with a ceremony lit by candles. Beauty was abound and as a photographer, I love when beauty is abound. They opted for a first look, and with that we wandered my beautiful city and I believe that we captured the emotion and feel that these two so deserve. I’m so thankful I met these two and I’m so thankful for people like these two coming into my life.
Here’s to the new Mr. & Mrs. Reinert, may your winters be warm and your hearts be warmer.
