Kara & Cory’s Ca’ d’Zan Mansion wedding on the Sarasota bay was absolutely stunning! Truly though – their love is even more beautiful. I know, I know – it sounds all cliche – but these two – it’s true. The beauty of her dress, the perfectly planned decor, the intricate cake – nothing at all – could overshadow the love. Kara & Cory have been sweethearts since EIGHTH GRADE! Seriously, how cute is that? And Kara’s smile – it could light up a room. She is so joyful and fun to be around, and no one can make her laugh harder than Cory!!
We loved all the personal aspects of their day – from their custom invites, the heirloom brooch on Kara’s bouquet, to the seriously amazing country band they hired for the reception – they are huge country music fans – it was all incredible. And of course the Ca’ d’Zan as your backdrop doesn’t hurt, right?
We wish you both a lifetime of happiness and so many more memories to add to your love story that started by having 7 out of 8 classes together in eighth grade. :) Congrats to you both as Mr & Mrs – and also as Dr & Dr!!
