Erika and David are a laid back couple who love the ocean breeze and spending time together on the water. David is an avid fisherman and loves being outdoors. His friends describe him and hardworking and very caring. Erika loves animals and is also passionate about fishing. Her friends describe her as very caring and lovable. David was attracted to Erika’s eyes and gentle spirit. Erika knew that David was her soul mate after only a week of dating. She fell in love with the way he treated her and knew he was her Prince Charming. The couple celebrated their wedding day in Stuart, Florida with a gorgeous view of the beach.
David and Erika took their boat to St. Augustine, Florida to enjoy the ocean. David abruptly stopped the boat in the middle of the water and asked Erika to look at the view. She was surprised to not only see a gorgeous ocean sunset, but a perfect custom designed engagement ring. David proposed on the open water and Erika enthusiastically said “Yes!”.
The Wedding Day and Ceremony
The ceremony was in the most stunning, romantic and coastal setting in Stuart, Florida. Sailfish Point was the perfect spot for the couple to pledge their love to one another. The Bride was elegant in her dress by Alfred Angelo and gracefully walked down to the groom. The floral arrangements by Harbour Bay Florist added a sweet, finishing touch to the ceremony. The couple decided to do the Fisherman’s knot for the Unity Ceremony and felt it was the perfect symbol for their relationship. The intimate, short and sweet ceremony ended with a kiss as the couple left to celebrate their new marriage with a reception.
The Reception at Sailfish Point
The Bride and Groom celebrated their marriage with friends and family at the Russel’s home in Sailfish Point. The food was delicious and the custom wedding cake was enjoyed by all. Both Erika and David could not believe how quickly the day went by and were moved by the kind speeches given by their friends. The guest enjoyed music by DJ Russ Griffin and danced well into the evening embracing the happiness shared by Erika and David.
The couple is post posting their honeymoon while they work to sell their homes and move to the Florida coast. They are looking forward to a lifetime of ocean breezes, outdoor fun and are hopeful they will start their family in the near future.
