Cassandra and Michael are a beautiful couple who are originally from Atlanta but decided to exchange vows in their happy place, Seaside Florida. I mean, who wouldn’t?! The weather that day was stunning, not a cloud in the sky with crisp spring air and their wedding was effortlessly classic with navy blue colors, black bow ties. Cassandra walked down the aisle at the Chapel at Seaside in a timeless Justin Alexander dress while holding the most stunning Princess Diana-inspired bouquet I have ever seen with lilies, orchids and greenery cascading from her hands to the bottom seams of her dress. Later at the Vue on 30a, we enjoyed a gorgeous sunset as they celebrated alongside their friends and family.

Their Story: Michael and Cassandra first crossed paths when Michael joined the same medical device team as Cassandra. They did a lot of driving where they would talk hours on hours end on the phone each day. They were fast friends.

Not long after that, they separated companies remaining the best of friends. They did everything together as best friends do. They started integrating their friend groups. They started hanging out a little later in the evenings together. The hello hugs lasted a little longer and were huggier. Their smiles were growing bigger. They were spending a lot of time with each other’s families. As the months progressed Michael asked her on their first official date, where they saw the newest Aladdin at Phipps Plaza. During that movie, they shared their first kiss and he held her hand in Theater 14. There was something so sweet and magical about that night. The next day they went on their second date, third date, then fourth date. They were inseparable. The magic continued.

How they got Engaged: He told me had to go to a work conference at the Amelia Island Ritz Carlton conference and to meet me there.. felt some sweaty hands walking me to the beach and then next thing you know people from the patio are yelling and cheering as hes on a knee…
