Another glorious opportunity to serve my Lord Jesus Christ revealed itself today, actually before a wedding I was appointed to lead in photography, as I found myself helping out with the garden wedding’s setup since the bride was running a little late and nothing was ready when I got there…
When I first arrived at the Renaissance Vinoy I was challenged with parking since there was a city event scheduled the same day, then the bride and her party were a little late getting to their suite.
By the time we finally got the preparation started, the guests were already pouring in and had nowhere to wait since the garden wasn’t quite ready to accommodate 125+ people just yet.
Once finished, the ceremony site turned out to be simple yet romantic beyond words. This wedding certainly had a DIY flair but given the venue, I’m sure no one noticed the silk flower bouquets and boutonnieres among such an extravagant garden, blooming with fresh flowers and tropical plants.
If you find yourself considering the Renaissance Vinoy Resort, located in downtown St Petersburg for your wedding, plan ahead and do yourself a favor, hire a wedding coordinator/designer to work out the details so you don’t find yourself running late at your own wedding… ;)
