Starting a New Year at St. Martha’s

On January 2, 2021, Olivia and Cameron stood at the alter at St. Martha Catholic Church in Sarasota. Despite the pandemic, they were determined to share their love with one another and with just a few family members, and to prove that love conquers all!

Because there were beautiful red poinsettias at the altar and scattered through the sanctuary, and the church itself is so lovely, no decorative additions were needed. The bride carried an elegant bouquet of deep red, quicksand blush, white playa blanca and shimmer peach roses with dark red spray roses, deep burgundy ranunculus and seeded and silver dollar eucalyptus. Our handsome and emotional groom, who teared up at the site of his wife-to-be, sported a simple boutonniere of white ranunculus and a
touch of peach kalanchoe. He had touched her heart earlier that day sending her a note and a dozen red roses before the ceremony.

Neither the bride nor the groom had attendants due to the safety requirements of the time…however, it was so wonderful to see their grandmothers serve as their flower girls, sharing a basket of petals and
flower heads for a sentimental effect – St. Martha doesn’t allow flower petal dropping anyway, but what better way to include loving grandmas in such a touching and intimate setting!

What a perfect example this couple set for others. They were able to have a gorgeous wedding, maybe not with the number of guests or fanfare of some other weddings, but with all the love and sentiment that go to the heart and soul of the day. They showed the pandemic that it wouldn’t stop them from their dreams, and we wish them all the best as they start their journey together.
