Mary and Dave’s love has been blossoming ever since the day they met, and this lovely January day would flourish their love even more as they began the next chapter in their lives.  The wedding took place at the magnificent Naples Botanical Gardens, filled with lush greens and colorful flowers that were at full bloom.  The scenery reminded me of a fairy tale with its enchanting ambience.  Hope Henderson Artistry did Mary’s hair and make up, and she honestly resembled a fairy tale princess with her half-up do with loose curls and glitzy headband, and her flowy white gown.  Signature Florals created additional floral arrangements that went along beautifully with the surrounding gardens.  Everyone took their seats, and the musical sounds of the strings began to play.  Mary gracefully walked down the aisle, and she could not keep her eyes off of her Prince Charming, Dave.  The fairy tale couple exchanged their vows and were married by Officiant Amy McCabe.  The guests enjoyed cocktail hour at the Caribbean Gardens, while the newly weds took photos in their mystic wonderland.  The reception began,  and the couple made their grand entrance while playing the trumpet, a passion that originally brought the two together.  Mary and Dave both played the trumpet in high school, which is how they met.  They now take part in competitons and still play together.  Black Tie Entertainment also provided musical entertainment for the evening, and the string lights draped around the dance floor created such an alluring atmosphere.  Magic was definitely in the air, and the couple lived happily ever after.
