marissa + tony: the club at the strand wedding

Both homeschooled growing up, Tony and Marissa, ended up in the same online academy. Meeting online for the first time in October of 2009, they instantly hit it off but there was quite the distance between the two. Tony lived in Michigan and Marissa lived in Florida. After spending countless hours getting to know one another and eight months after meeting online, Tony somehow convinced his family to take a vacation down to Naples. On June 17th, 2010 Tony and Marissa met in person for the very first time.

Marissa’s stunning hair and makeup (as always) by Salon Tease & Faces by Frohmberg.

Truly some of the most gorgeous flowers I’ve ever shot…Botanicals on the Gulf, you never fail to amaze me. Ahhh, these were incredible.
