Nick & Jason
Nick and Jason were married at St. Pete Beach, Florida. One of our favorite and most popular locations to shoot at. Beach weddings always invoke a sense of tranquility. Their ceremony led the guests to rows of chairs accented ribbon with vibrant flowers. The aisle decorated with rose petals leading to the arch and a small table with glasses of sand.
Nick and Jason treated guests to upbeat, live music played by a saxophone musician. Some of the music included classics, such as “When the Saints Go Marching In,” Louis Armstrong’s “What a Wonderful World/Somewhere Over the Rainbow,” Jason Mraz’s “I’m Yours”. Before guests took their seats, each guest would sign a commemorative plate for Nick and Jason to look back on.
The grooms love for their pastimes was evident while they helped each other with their bow ties, one with sharks and the other with dinosaurs. Guests were seated, and the music transitioned to more romantic songs, such as “At Last,” Katy Perry’s “A Thousand Years,” and John Legend’s “All of Me”.
As the ceremony commenced, Nick and Jason arrived, bare-footed with their trusty dog-bearer. As they walked down to the arch, everyone stood smiling with excitement. During the ceremony, they read their vows, and exchanged their rings. They tied their love with a unity sand ceremony, symbolizing two lives becoming one.
Nick’s Vows: “I, Nick, choose you Jason, as my husband in friendship and in love, in strength and weakness to share the good times and misfortune, in achievement and failure. I will cherish and respect you through all the changes of our lives, forever giving thanks that we found each other.”
Jason’s Vows: “Nick, I take you to be my husband; to have and to hold, from this day forward. I give to you my un-ending love and devotion I promise to be true to you, to cherish you, and to share my thoughts, hopes and dreams with you. I look forward to spending the rest of my life with you, my best friend. I will love you forever.”
Ring Vows: “You are my best friend and everlasting companion. You have brought me the truest happiness I have ever known. I take joy in today in committing my life to yours. With this ring I promise to stand with you as we share this life, and cherish the memories we make together.”
Afterwards, Nick and Jason celebrated with their family and friends with glasses of champagne.
As their ceremony came to a close, Nick and Jason whisked away into the sunset.
