Stephanie and Grant
Stephanie and Grant came from Texas and chose the beautiful Resort at Longboat Key Club as the venue for their wedding ceremony and reception in late Fall.
Secluded on a barrier island on the Gulf of Mexico, The Resort at Longboat Key Club is a AAA Four-Diamond destination that spans 410 acres of lush lawns and pristine beachfront with authentic Old Florida boardwalks. Just a short drive from the upscale shopping, museums and theaters in downtown Sarasota, guests can unwind in one of 226 luxury guest rooms and suites, the perfect setting for family vacations, romantic getaways and guests looking for a tropical escape. Amenities also include access to the resort’s five distinctive restaurants and lounges, along with 45 holes of championship golf, award-winning Tennis Gardens, a full-service spa and an array of water sport equipment. Weddings at The Resort at Longboat Key Club will be nothing short of spectacular. From dramatic themes to serene beach settings, the ceremony and reception will be customized down to the smallest detail, transforming each bride and groom’s vision into reality. Ceremony sites can be one of the elegant indoor venues, or a beach location. It was the perfect location for Stephanie and Grant to get married.
Stephanie looked amazing as she was escorted across the sand by her father, to join Grant in front of their wedding arch. The couples’ custom designed wedding ceremony included a Scriptures Readings from the Book of Genesis and Ruth, The Lord’s Prayer, a Parent/Family Blessing, the Poem On Your Wedding Day, The Wine Box Ceremony, and A Prayer of Wedding Persons. Then, in front of their family and friends, and with an amazing view of the Gulf of Mexico as their backdrop, the couple shared their wedding vows, exchanged rings and were pronounced husband and wife by Rev Rick Lackore of Sensational Ceremonies.
