Lush green grass with a walkway leading directly to the shoreline of the stunning Siesta Key beach. The sky was bright blue as it overlooked the white sand. Not a single cloud was anywhere to be found.
It was the perfect setting for Stacy and Philip to begin their lives as husband and wife! Their wedding venue, Cottage on the Rocks, is the exact depiction of a tropical paradise. At night the venue transformed with the romantic glow from the beautifully strung garden lights making for a magical evening of dancing and celebrations. From beginning to end, the whole day was enchanting and the happy couple deserved nothing less.
Just like these two as individuals, Stacy and Philip’s wedding day was inviting, full of love and laughter. It was the most beautiful day for two of the most incredible people we’ve had the chance to meet. Their family and friends thoroughly enjoyed dancing and mingling together throughout the night. You could tell that each and every person that came to celebrate these two lives coming together deeply cared for the couple.
You see, Stacy and Philip’s love story dates back way before they got engaged. Their lives have been intertwined since an early age bringing them together throughout the years at the perfect moments. One of the most touching parts of their wedding was when all of Stacy’s bridesmaids who have known her through different stages of life came together to collectively tell a story of Stacy and Philip’s journey over the years. Each one had entered their lives in different moments, but they all knew these two would end up together. It became abundantly clear after hearing their speech that the bride and groom were destined to be with one another.
Stacy and Philip,
From the moment we met you both, we have been blown away by your authentic kindness to everyone you interact with and by your love for one another. This rang especially true on the day of your wedding. At every instance we witnessed, you two were either fully engaged with those around you ensuring that everyone was enjoying themselves and knew how much you appreciated them taking the time to be at your wedding or you were lost in a moment with each other enjoying this day you both have long awaited. We saw you smile throughout the entire day and genuinely enjoy the moments as they unfolded. This is what made your wedding day so spectacular.
The amount of love surrounding you as you said your vows was remarkable. Yianni and I felt honored to be there to capture it all. Getting to see two people with a once in a lifetime love story get to live out their happily ever after really touched us. We are so grateful to have met you both and cannot wait to see you both again sometime soon. We are so excited to see how your love grows and continues to carry you both through life as you walk hand in hand with one another!
Big hugs and lots of love,
Kourtney & Yianni
