Monika and Paul

Monika and Paul chose the beautiful Lakewood Ranch Golf and Country Club as the venue for their wedding ceremony and reception earlier this Spring.. 

The Lakewood Ranch Golf and Country Club is an award-winning club, recognized locally and nationally for excellence in golf, dining, clubhouses, and club experience.  As a wedding venue, there is a lush lawn off the outdoor terrace, overlooking the green fairways and fountain-filled lake which is a perfect ceremony site.  Their grand ballroom is an elaborate space complete with marble columns, graceful arches, and elegant chandeliers. Lakewood Ranch Golf and Country Club brings an air of luxury and refinement to any wedding day. It was the perfect location for Monika and Paul to get married.

Monika looked amazing as he made her grand entrance down the elegant outside staircase and was then escorted by her parents to join Paul in front of their wedding arch.  The couple’s custom designed ceremony included The Lord’s Prayer, Scripture Readings from the Book of Proverbs and 1 Corinthians 13, and words about Love, Friendship, Loyalty, Fidelity and Trust.  Then, in front 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.

The ceremony Music and Sound for Monika and Paul was provided by Tim with TLS Entertainment, Florals and Décor by Beneva Weddings, Venue Coordination by Hayley and the rest of the staff at Lakewood Ranch; and Wedding Event Coordination by Kandace with Kandace McElroy Events.  Special thanks to Will and his team with Iyrus Weddings for providing this beautiful picture during their ceremony, as well as videography.         

Congratulations to the new Mr. and Mrs. Paul and Monika Banks!
