Marisa & Josh, The White Room, St. Augustine, Florida

Marisa 6

This time last year, we were packing up and heading to St. Augustine to kick off a weekend of celebrations for Marisa & Josh. Marisa and Josh grew to know one another and fell in love through daily e-mails when Josh was away on a 7 month deployment. Josh reached out to Marisa just days before he deployed in hopes she would return his e-mail and much to surprise, she did and they have not looked back since! Not only is this weekend their one year anniversary, but it is also Veterans Day, a day where our country honors our military veterans. As we celebrate the one year anniversary of this special couple, we also would like to say THANK YOU.  Josh, thank you for the sacrifices you have made to serve and protect our country and Marisa, thank you for the unconditional support you have given Josh during his service.


Marisa had Josh’s name tag from his Navy uniform sewn into her wedding dress, giving her dress even more meaning.  Marisa & Josh were married under the most beautiful birch Chuppah, designed by, Bonnie of Ruby Reds Floral.Following the ceremony, which was held in Villa Blanca of The White Room, guests were invited into the main ballroom for an evening of celebration!

Marisa who has a deep passion and love for dance was an NFL Cheerleader for the Jacksonville Jaguars. Over half of her bridesmaids cheered along side her at some point in her life; From High School Cheer to Competitive Cheer  Teams to the NFL. With so many talented dancers in the wedding party, the dance floor was a buzz all night long!
