Lina and Cris chose to have their intimate wedding at Lina’s childhood home in Clearwater FL, which was built in the earlier part of the 1900’s. The happy couple was surrounded by 55 of their closest family and friends with Catherine Ann Photography behind the lens.
The ceremony and reception took place in the backyard overlooking Clearwater beach. Cris actually lived in one of the high rises across the water from Lina’s house before they met. They did a first look in the street outside of the house and despite all the chaos going on right next to them in the yard as vendors set up for the wedding, it was a very sweet and private moment!
They had a lot of meaningful details and moments at the throughout the day. Lina’s talented mom painted their beautiful invitation design. They drank out of a German wedding cup instead of lighting unity candles during the ceremony, (Lina’s heritage is German). Cris and his mom danced to a special song in honor of his sister who has passed on. Lina’s father wrote and sang them a song at the reception, and they had relatives from all over the world as far as Germany attend the wedding.
Thanks for stopping by!
