Steven & Cheri 06.09.2012

Steven & Cheri are two very busy people!  Working two jobs, raising children and going to school -  AND planning a wedding!  We joked with them if they can get through this - there's nothing they can't do!

Steven & Cheri decided on the Tarpon Lodge as the location for their wedding.  It's located on Pine Island, and is also a marina.  We had never been there before, and it was a bit of a drive getting there - but worthwhile.  Being on the water meant there was a constant breeze in the afternoon heat.  The wedding ceremony was outside near the docks, the cocktail hour was just outside the main building, the reception was on the enclosed patio, and two adjacent rooms.  That meant setting up in a few locations to get it right - but it all worked out great.

The ceremony went off perfectly.  We worked with photographer Brooke Scott  who was very nice and very attentive throughout the evening.

Guests were treated to a buffet dinner featuring fish and chicken.  After dinner, the party headed to the reception room where from the first song to the last, everyone had fun dancing and making requests for the next song.  We noticed how the adults and kids enjoyed all the different kinds of music and celebrated together.  The wedding had a very intimate feel with the location and the close friends, which is what Steven & Cheri wanted.  Congratulations!
