Dan & Chiara

This was a special wedding for me! Special, because Chiara is a friend of mine. She is such a caring & giving person. She is always on the go but always finds time to help others, including volunteering her time to help the less fortunate. Dan and her love to run marathons and that's how they first met and fell in love.

Their ceremony and reception was at Red Fish Grill at Matheson Hammock Park. Chiara wanted to make her wedding heart felt and very personal. Her save the dates were all personalized with a note as to how your presence would make them happy at their wedding. People came from as far as England to join in such a special day!

On my way to the Red Fish, it was pouring! The skies didn't look as they were going to let up either. Her ceremony was to be outside and with that rain; there was no way it was going happen. We had to make a lot of last minute decisions. Fortunately, everything came together with a few improvisations to the plan. I made some emergency calls and was able to get a tent by the time cocktail hour was finished! Wow, that was stressful :0)

My favorite part of the night was Chiara's speech to all her guests. It was beautiful and very touching. I was holding tissues just in case her or her family me members started crying but at the end, it was I who needed them most!

2nd Favorite: Marble Slab Ice Cream...mmm!

Chiara and Dan, I am soo happy to have been part of the planning process and your wedding day! I wish you both an amazing life together an may God continue to bless you always!
