Kerri and James were both born and raised on Long Island in New York. Kerri and James met while out for dinner with friends in New York. Kerri is a Steelers Fan with a heart for children. James is a family man with a love for baseball, beer and bourbon. Kerri was immediately attracted to James sweet and caring personality. James loves Kerri’s kind nature and that she puts her family before anyone. James moved his entire life to Florida to be with Kerri because he knew she was the girl for him. James and Kerri were thrilled to share their wedding ceremony at St. Sebastian’s Catholic Church in Fort Lauderdale Florida with their friends and family.
On a cold November night, James asked Kerri to take a walk to a duck pond. Once they arrived, James got down on one knee and asked Kerri to be his wife. After the proposal, James had arranged for her friends and family to meet them at a local bar to celebrate. Everyone could feel the energy and excitement.
The Wedding Day & Ceremony
The ceremony was in the most serene, stunning, romantic setting at St. Sebastian’s Catholic Church. The day was perfectly sunny, and the Bride looked breath-taking walking down to her groom. The couple was surrounded by over one hundred family and friends as they committed their lives to one another. While the beginning of the day may have seemed hectic to the couple, the ceremony was flawless. The couple sealed their vows with a kiss and were pronounced Husband and Wife. They left the venue hand in hand off to their reception.
The Reception at Hyatt Regency Pier Sixty-Six
The Bride and Groom had a gorgeous reception at Hyatt Regency Pier Sixty-Six. For their first dance, Kerri and James learned a choreographed dance to Ed Sheeran’s “Thinking Out Loud.” The setting was made more memorable with a sunset backdrop with 360-degree views of the Atlantic Ocean. While the reception was a black tie affair all of the guest seemed to dance the night away and enjoy the celebration as the band played on throughout the event.
The couple took a romantic trip to Sandals in Saint Lucia. They enjoyed relaxing on the beach and spending their first week as Husband and Wife in a romantic, pristine location. After returning home to Florida, Kerry and James wish to continue to travel the world and check a few things off of their bucket list. They are hopeful that they will buy a home in the near future and start a family together.
