The East Coast Bride

A Florida Destination Wedding by Mark Dickinson Photography

By Krista

We love this wedding for so many reasons (and only by coincidence did this wedding take place during a tropical storm in Florida - we hope everyone in Hurricane Isaac’s path is staying safe and sound). The bright, beautiful pink color scheme seems to perfectly capture the fun loving Katie and Jeff and as pet adopters (Keri with her dog Cooper and Krista with her cats Calvin and Suzie), we absolutely love the inclusion of their dog in the ceremony and reception and favor donations to the Best Friends Animal Society! And those nighttime pictures in the rain by Mark Dickinson Photography - perfection.

From the beautiful bride, Katie:

We have been together for about 7 years, getting engaged in Cancun Mexico in April 2011. We absolutely adore Florida, so we knew we needed to have a destination wedding there! We planned an intimate and fun event with Tropical Storm Beryl as our special guest! We were supposed to get married at the Castillo de san Marcos, but due to high winds and random down pours we had both the ceremony and reception in the main ball room of the white room in St Augustine. In lieu of traditional Favors, a donation was made in honor of our guests to Best Friends Animal Society. Cheers to a world with no more homeless pets!
