Brendan and Melissa 2.15.2014


 Scott and I are so grateful that we get to do many of our couple's weddings and/or receptions at the Naples Beach Hotel & Golf Club!  Thanks for this one Lindsey!  We love to work with all the staff their!  Today we there for Brendan and Melissa.  This event is also a destination wedding!  They had their Wedding Ceremony on the Ocean Lawn with approximately 100 guests.  It was another beautiful sun soaked day here in Southwest, Florida.  Melissa and Brendan were married by Rev. Rick Riccardi a Priest from the East coast.

After the Wedding Ceremony the guest stayed on the Ocean Lawn to enjoy Cocktail Hour with a mix of tropical, Florida, beach type music that we provided for them while they enjoyed the sunset during the newly wedded couples photos were being taken.  The photographer was Sebrie Images Photography and they were all a pleasure to work with.

Next, it was off the the Wedding Reception in the Everglades Room.  Also known as the room with all the windows.  To start off the reception this new Mr. and Mrs. chose to be introduced into the room with just the two of them to "Blurred Lines" by Robin Thicke.  It's a fun and upbeat start for the start of the night!  Once a Welcome Toast and the Blessing was done they all enjoyed being served dinner. There were two more Toasts and then Brendan chose to say thanks to all the guests himself and to tell his new wife how beautiful she looks.  A classy touch, huh?  Brendan and Melissa chose to do their Cake Cutting ("Dearest" by The Black Keys) after dinner and before they did their First Dance and the Parent Dances.

Melissa and Brendan's First Dance song was "Better Together" by Jack Johnson.  Melissa and her Dad danced to "When You Need Me" by Bruce Springsteen.  Two-thirds of the way through it changed to "Centerfield" by John Fogerty. Growing up her Dad was her coach for all the sports she played including Softball.  Brendan danced with his Mother to "Child Of Mine" by Carole King.

The rest of the night was a lot of dancing and fun! It was such a pleasure meeting this sweet couple.
