Cristina and Nicholas did a fantastic job planning every detail of their Chic Florida Wedding. The bride wore a gorgeous gown with an illusion low back and a deep v-neck, while the groom looked dashing in a black bow tie. The flower girls had adorable floral robes to get dolled up in and the venue’s view over the Florida coast was stunning.
There was one detail however, that neither Cristina or Nicholas could plan for, and it made the entire event extraordinary! Shortly before the wedding, the couple found out that they were expecting and they decided to share there joyous news during their reception. Not only did they get to surprise all of their family and friends, but they also got to reveal the gender of their little bundle of joy! When the balloon popped to reveal bright blue confetti – Scribbled Moments Photography was able to perfectly capture the joy, love and excitement seen on all the guests faces. Read more about their story leading up to their big day below!
