Robin and Russell had a beautiful, traditional wedding at the Gloria dei Lutheran Church and fabulous reception at Lakeside Inn in Mount Dora, Florida. The two actually met about five years ago when Russell worked as a security guard at the gatehouse where Robin’s aunt and uncle lived. Every weekend Robin would drive up to visit her aunt and uncle and spend time with her horses. Robin and Russell would make small chat (and a little bit of flirting) at the start and end of her weekend trips.
After moving up closer to her family, the two began dating and have been together ever since. As Robin puts it, “we just wish we had met sooner in life, because he is the most wonderful man I have ever met.”
After three years of dating and realizing that Robin was his soulmate, Russell planned out a special date night with a proposal in mind. Russell started off by taking Robin to dinner and after wanted to walk to her the Carriage Museum to pop the question. Robin is as just as big of a horse lover as I am, and the Carriage Museum was the most thoughtful spot for an equine lover. However upon arriving at the museum, the two found it to be closed. Russell needed to think of a backup plan, and quick! He brought Robin back to their home and as soon as they go there he dropped to one knee and asked for her hand in marriage. Robin laughs that it is not the most romantic story, but truly it is a beautiful thought that Russell wanted to incorporate Robin’s love of horses and ended up proposing to her in their very own home together.
Their wedding was just as sweet as the two of them are. A little bit more traditional, Robin and Russell tied the knot in the beautiful Gloria dei Lutheran Church in Leesburg, Florida. Bold, red vases and benches adorned the aisle as Robin was walked down by her father to her husband to be. The ceremony was quiet and intimate with only their closest family and friends in attendance. I loved how their wedding truly was a “ying” and “yang” from a traditional ceremony to a vivacious reception at the Lakeside Inn in Mount Dora, Florida.
After saying their “I Do’s” and grabbing a quick family photo at the altar, we headed over to Lakeside Inn for dancing and dining. DJ Vince Roeshink played the best music (as always!) and lit up the dance floor with blue uplighting against the vibrant pink walls of the ballroom. Guests enjoyed a lovely dinner and danced the night away overlooking the gardens.
Wishing these two a beautiful life together!
