Beneath a canopy of swaying palms, and a wooden harbor adored with bold blooms, Alyssa and Spencer shared their vows on a calming Autumn afternoon at Sarasota National Golf Course.

Alyssa, radiant in her white lace gown with floral appliques and her burgundy cowboy boots walked gracefully down the aisle strewn with straw, arm and arm with her father as she approached the alter. Spencer, standing tall in his maroon and black suit fought to hold back tears as he watched her walk towards him with the largest smile on her face. Surrounded by their closest friends and family, Spencer and Alyssa made promises of eternal love and devotion.

After their touching ceremony, Alyssa and Spencer's reception hall transformed into an autumn wonderland, bedecked with centerpieces adorned by pumpkins, mason jars, fall leaves, and twinkling fairy lights. Their very first dance as a married couple spun a mesmerizing story beneath the gentle twinkle of those lights, filling the air with a magic that only true love brings to life.


As the night deepened, laughter and joy filled the air as Alyssa and Spencer danced with their loved ones on the lively dance floor. The warmth of the twinkling lights mirrored the glow on their faces as they swayed to the music, surrounded by the love of family and friends who cheered them on.


Instead of a traditional cake cutting, Alyssa and Spencer opted for something unique—a delightful pie cutting ceremony. With laughter and a touch of playfulness, they shared the first sweet bites, savoring the start of their journey as a married couple.

The highlight of the evening? A planned line dance that had everyone on their feet, moving in unison. The lively steps and shared laughter created a bond that echoed the unity and joy of Alyssa and Spencer's love.


Under the stars that adorned the Sarasota sky, Alyssa and Spencer's celebration continued, each moment creating unforgettable memories. As the night drew to a close, they bid farewell to an evening brimming with love, laughter, and the start of a beautiful happily ever after.
