{Kimberly & John @ The Florida Aquarium}

John went to college with Kimberly's sister, Lynsey.  John actually introduced Lynsey to his friend, who she ended up marrying.  Lynsey told John she thought he would totally hit it off with her sister Kimberly and they did!  On a double date in the puffin area at the zoo, John knew he and Kimberly were meant to be, so that's why they chose the Aquarium to get married.  Kimberly’s wedding gown is one she saw when trying on bridesmaid dress for her sister’s wedding. Thinking it would not be there when she got married, but much to her surprise it was!  It was the first dress she tried on and was THE ONE.  There was a sweet little note in the pocket of the wedding gown garment bag John had left for Kimberly.  Their ceremony was in the Coral Reef room with the sharks and fish as their backdrop.  The ring bearer was Kimberly’s nephew, he was so cute handing off the rings.  Just before their official first kiss as Mr. & Mrs. the penguins waddled down the aisle.  The ceremony was flipped into the reception room, with silver, aqua, white and a hint of red.  At the sweetheart table there was a crocheted castle that was in a glass box. Kim's Grandmother made this and it was the cake topper for Kim's mom’s, aunt's, and sister's wedding cakes. Kim never got to meet her Grandmother because she had passed before Kim was born so it was a little piece of her and I’m sure she was watching from above and celebrating with them in spirit.  After dinner we took Kim and John in a little hidden staircase for some nighttime shots since it was raining outside. The big round picture window made an awesome reflection and gave them a few minutes of just the 2 of them.  Everyone had such an amazing time, and we loved capturing all these special moments.  Congrats Kim & John!! xoxoxo
