At the Don

Christine and Steven came from Illinois, and booked their Elopement Package at the Don CeSar on St. Pete Beach on a beautiful morning in the Summer.

 The Don is a True Legend.  Dramatically perched atop wind-swept dunes with expansive views in every direction, The Don CeSar is the epitome of old-world glamour and sophistication. Since 1928, it has graciously welcomed the world’s elite, stars of the silver screen, renowned authors, U.S presidents and even a gangster or two, all seeking a private, sophisticated playground in the sun. Today guests can experience the legendary Pink Palace® for themselves in all its iconic and romantic grandeur. 

 Christine was escorted across the sand by her son, to join Steven at their ceremony site on the beach in front of the iconic swing at the Don.  The couples’ custom designed ceremony included the Blessing of the Hands and Blended Family Vows for each of their children.  Then, with an amazing view of the Gulf of Mexico as their backdrop, and in front of an intimate gathering of their family and friends, the couple shared their vows, exchanged rings and were pronounced husband and wife by Rev Rick Lackore of Sensational Ceremonies


Venue and Event coordination was provided by Nicole and the rest of the staff at The Don CeSar.  Special thanks to Tammy, with True Love Photography, for providing this beautiful picture during their ceremony.

Congratulations to the new Dr. and Mrs. Steven Connolly!
