Introducing Mr. & Mrs. Sabouneh

Misty was completely relaxed on her wedding day and ready to marry her best friend.  She'd been awaiting this day for a long time and the day was finally here!

Misty's bridesmaids were quite stunning and all wore long beautiful gowns by Bill Levkoff.  Misty's gown was by Katie May and looked like absolute perfection on Misty.  All the beautiful floral details were the creative work of Avant- Garde.

Ryan looked very dapper and handsome.  He was so excited to see Misty.  He had actually proposed to Misty nearly two years in the same garden at the Royal Palms where they would now get married. 

Not only was Misty relaxed and happy she also looked luminous. 

Misty and Ryan's color choices paired so nicely with the beautiful twists and turns of the enchanting Royal Palms Resort.

Finally it was time for Ryan and Misty to have their "First Look."

Misty was ready and Ryan couldn't wait any longer. 

Finally, it was time....time to as Ryan would say "lock down this unicorn."

Once they saw each other for the first time they both seemed all the more relaxed and ready. 

And right about this time...the weather started getting a little crazy....

The wind was blowing, lightening was striking, and few raindrops had started falling. 

We were either going to proceed with the scheduled ceremony time, or do a "reverse" cocktail hour and let the storm pass.  Misty made the final call and said "let's do this, and let's do this now."

At that time Misty had changed out of her dress and shoes (to be comfortable) and all of her Bridesmaids were still dressed. 

Misty got back into her dress and shoes, while her girls were doing touch ups, looking for shoes, and packing up their purses and such.

All of a sudden with olympic speed, Misty comes walking through the doorway, completely dressed, before all of her girls and starts walking towards the Ceremony Site.  At that time her girls in record time came chasing after her.  It was quite an impressive thing to witness.

Misty was all smiles and ready to marry Ryan. 

As the wind welcomed her down the aisle, Misty was handed off to her best friend.  The Ceremony was performed by one of Misty and Ryan's dear friends. 

Everything about their ceremony was personalized, so meaningful, and yet so fun.

They were now "official."

It was time to celebrate!

They were so relieved and so happy. 

The guests enjoyed cocktail hour the newlyweds snuck a few romantic photos. 

The Royal Palms was so perfect as it has so many romantic twists and turns. 

Everything about the resort felt so private and special. 

These two had been waiting a long time for this moment. 

As their relationship started as friends, and grew into best friends. 

The night continued with a delicious meal.  The main course was a duet entrée of petite beef tenderloin paired with a butter roasted jumbo shrimp. 

At the end of the night they even surprised all of their guests with a late night fare display of house made pizza, (pizza is a big deal to Misty & Ryan) tenderloin sliders and potato fries. 

It was quite evident how loved Misty and Ryan are by their family and friends.  It's safe to say that these two will continue dancing through life and laughing together every step of the way.
