Michael and Veronica 6.28.14

The wedding day of Veronica and Michael was a nice change of things for us.  It was planned a lot with Veronica's Mom, to the tee!  The wedding Ceremony was set for, and did begin at 9:00 AM Sharp!  There was approximately 107 guests on the beautiful Naples Beach Hotel Lawn with the beach as the backdrop.  what a gorgeous morning it was!  Veronica chose for her bridesmaids to walk down the isle (Processional) to "Cannon in D Minor" Pachabel's.  Her Dad walked her down to "Marry Me" by Train (Diamond Ring Mix).  When the Ceremony was over, the Recessional for Michael and Veronica was "Spring" The Four Seasons Vivaldi.  Just perfect for them!

Cocktail hour followed and the theme of music that was chosen was Instrumental Steel Drum / Island Style music.  They all wanted the tropical "on the water" feel for their guests while Veronica and Michael had their pictures taken by Aimee Rossi Photography whom is always a pleasure to work with and catch up with.

In the Everglades Dining Room (EDR) is where all the guests found their seats and enjoyed the beautiful beach view until we were ready to do the Introductions.  I was tortured by the wonderful smell of the waffles being made at buffet nearby. ;-)  I'm sure the guests were looking forward to diving in to the breakfast buffet too.  (although I never did taste the waffles)  ;-(

We started off the morning reception party with the Introduction of the Bridal Attendants which included Parents of both Veronica and Michael, a Flowergirl and Ringbearer, a few Bridesmaids and the "Man of Honor" before the new Bride and Groom.  They were all introduced with the song "Forever" by Chris Brown. Fun!

The new Groom and Bride went to the middle of the dance floor for their First Dance together as Husband and Wife, and they danced to "You and I" by One Direction.

Following the First Dance was the Father / Daughter Dance to "I Loved Her First" by Heartland.  Then the Mother / Son Dance to "Never Alone" by Lady Antebellum.  Half way through Michael's dance with his Mom, they had his Grandmother finish off the dance with Michael. 

Following the Special Dances the guests enjoyed the Buffet Brunch!  Yes, I was wishing it was professional for me to eat the waffles since my fav's are pancakes and waffles but, I restrained myself. ;-p

Once guests had a bit to enjoy Brunch their were three toasts done by the Father of Veronica, the Best Man and the Man of Honor.  Shortly after the Brunch Michael and Veronica cut into their small cake then allowed the guests to enjoy cupcakes!  Veronica chose the song "Sugar Sugar" for the cutting of the cake.

Even though Scott had some strict guidelines from Veronica's Mom, it all went along great and everyone had a great time!

Be sure to see the pics of the "Candy Bar" that was put out for the guests.  It was specially put together by Michael's Aunt and was by far THE Best we've seen!
