So, how does a couple get married in Daytona Beach, Florida when they actually live in Sweden? Well, it actually all started for Marcus & Marie when they met in Lybia in 2009. There, their Love Story began & cultivated. I’ll sum it up in Marie’s words, “We continued to meet and date. Libya was a perfect place for us to take things slow and fall in love, as we really got to know each other before rushing away with our emotions. So now, here we are, 3 years later… happy, in love, engaged to be married with a baby on the way!”
Now, let’s fast-forwarding to Saturday, May 11th, 2013. Marcus & Marie became man & wife at the beautiful Shores Resort & Spa in Daytona Beach Shores, Florida. They had intended to have an outdoor ceremony. That plan remained till about 45 mins prior to ceremony. That’s when the rain began… That’s also when Wedding Planner extraordinaire Emily Macri, owner of White Blossoms Weddings & Events, LLC jumped into action. This called for Plan “B”. Within minutes, the staff of The Shores jumped into action – relocating the entire ceremony set up from outside to inside. As you can see by the images, their ceremony was very intimate & quite lovely. The florals & decor was exquisitely provided by Rachael Rollins, owner of Rachael Kasie Designs, LLC. The music pre-ceremony & during the ceremony was provided by Melody Anglin, owner of Music by Melody. The reception music provided by Optimal Sounds DJ Service.
We even had to go to Plan “B” for the wedding portraits. Again, as you can see, The Shores Resort’s lobby is absolutely gorgeous with its rich warmth – it gave us the perfect background. No, it wasn’t the beach, but it was the next best thing… Congrats you two!!!
