Jenny and Bobby first met in the early 90’s during middle school. The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, Boys II Men, and Paula Abdul were some of their beloved icons while Jansports and overalls were fashion musts. Jenny and Bobby passed each other in hallways and shared classes, but the sparks were yet to come. The beginnings of a beautiful friendship began to unravel at FIU. Bobby later transferred to the University of Florida, but made sure to keep in touch with Jenny. Their relationship finally took off and there was no turning back!
Bobby proposed while they were vacationing in the Exumas, an island in the Bahamas. Jenny and Bobby love the Bahamas, so he knew this would be a special location to propose. They were taking a photo, and Jenny was surprised to see Bobby carefully dropping to one knee. She saw him holding the most beautiful engagement ring and the biggest smile on his face.
Jenny and Bobby had a romantic first look as they drove through town in golf carts. They arrived to their first look location, a dead end street that read, “Stop and Turn Around,” which was adjacent to the beautiful turquoise Biminite waters. When Bobby turned around, his eyes were watering and he had a huge smile on his face, excited to see how beautiful his soon to be wife looked!
The wedding design brought to life by Avant-Gardens was stunning. Jenny and her bridesmaids wore flower crowns made from gysophelia. The bouquets included juliet garden roses, peach amarylis, succulents, and accents of gysophelia and seeded eucalyptus. Stainless steel lanterns were also used for the centerpieces beside clusters of white hydrangeas, juliet garden roses, isle spray roses, succulents, and offset grape wood over a white cube.
“The day was magical. God truly blessed us with amazing weather all day and a gorgeous sunset. If we were able to describe our heaven, it was how we felt on our wedding day with all our friends and family celebrating in one place.”
