High School Sweethearts
Ryan and Amy’s relationship began when they were High School Sweethearts. In late March, their love story culminated on Honeymoon Island State Park in Dunedin, FL. Honeymoon Island is the most visited State Park in Florida, with over 4 miles of pristine white sandy beaches. The park actually got its name when a New Yorker purchased the island in 1939 and built bungalows for honeymooners, so it was a fitting location for the couple’s Intimate Wedding Ceremony.
Despite the chilly wind that evening, Amy looked gorgeous in her wedding gown as she was escorted across the sand by her daughter to join Ryan, who actually wore the sneakers he had on for their first date 20 years ago! There, at the water’s edge, and with a magnificent view of the Gulf of Mexico and Clearwater Beach as their backdrop, the couple shared their custom designed ceremony and vows (which included blended family vows for Ryan and Amy’s daughter, as well as a sand ceremony); then they exchanged rings and were pronounced husband and wife by Rev Rick Lackore of Sensational Ceremonies. Flawless Wedding Coordination was provided by A True Love Affair Intimate Florida Weddings. Special thanks to Tammy, with True Love Photography, for providing this picture during their ceremony.
Congratulations to the new Mr. and Mrs. Ryan Smith!
