Frankie and Matt first met while attending classes in college in Ft. Myers, Florida. Though they had noticed each other in class it wasn’t until they began to spend time out of school that they realized they had something special. Both now Certified Public Accountants, they wanted to make their wedding day not only memorable for themselves but for their guests as well. They decided on Reunion for their big day as the Resort provided the bride the elegance she desired and the groom the opportunity to enjoy both of his passions, his bride and golf.
The Bride looked spectacular in her wedding gown with a beaded bodice and matching tiara. Her bridesmaids wore the signature purple color with matching teardrop earrings and side swept up-dos. The men sported classic black tuxedos and the groom stood out with a white vest and bowtie.
The bride and groom’s vision for the evening was “simple elegance”. They achieved this by choosing design and décor that complimented the existing ambiance. At the ceremony in Linear Park, Frankie and Matt decided upon a white colonnade with fresh flowers. Aisle markers in the same signature colors and custom programs added those special details.
Cocktail Hour left nothing to be desired. With much of the family coming from New York, it was important to Frankie and Matt to include some of “home” for them by offering a fabulous cocktail hour. In addition to the passed hors d’oeuvres offered, stations to include pasta, sliders and shrimp were also on the menu.
At the reception, the elegance continued with gorgeous table settings in the Grande Ballroom. Purple linen paired with silver chaivari chairs, glass beaded chargers and silver napkins complimented the beautiful centerpieces perfectly. As a special touch, beaded napkin rings were used to make the napkins settings in to bows. Frankie and Matt included many special touches to include a photo booth, barista station and even the guests escort cards presented in Mikasa frames as their favors.
The wonderful team of vendors who helped make this day special!
