Such an incredibly sweet love story for these high school sweethearts, as they got married at the Tampa Embassy Suites on the 12 year anniversary of their first date…to their high school junior prom! It’s so heart warming to see the deep and true love they have for each other, and it is amazing to see how their family and friends all adore each other as well (since they have all essentially grown up together!) Another huge bonus of why I cannot get enough Mari and Brett…..the are GATORS (we did their Gainesville engagement session at the University of Florida…gotta love that!)
A little surprise that Mari had planned for Brett….but for his eyes only! Here is a little tease…
The precious flower girls and junior bridesmaid!
Our groom-to-be, Brett!
And the groomsmen
Mari, you are seriously stunning!
Mari’s dad wears his heart on his sleeve…especially when he saw his daughter for the first time as a bride.
Our bride and her bridesmaids
Patrick captured this image of Mari’s bridesmaids. I kind of LOVE it!
Finally after 12 years…our bride and groom!
Did I mention these two are huge Gator fans? Well, so much so that they entered the reception to the Gator fight song doing the Gator chomp! They then had a 12 minute long choreographed dance to a series to popular songs from the last 12 years. It was crazy fun!
