2 1/2 years ago, Katie and Evan found love over Katy Perry's song, "I Kissed A Girl". When Evan decided to play the catchy tune on his iPhone and heard Katie singing along, sparks began to fly. Since then, they have travelled the country together hiking, parasailing, jet-skiing, and, most importantly, taking life one day at a time. Katie and Evan decided to celebrate their love and carefree spirits in an oceanfront ceremony and poolside reception at Gloria Estefan's resort in Vero Beach, FL - Costa d'Este. Simple but beautiful flowers decorated the already perfect location while ocean waves and a steel drum band provided the musical ambience.

It was a great decision because it calmed Katie's nerves and she wasn't so worried about walking down the aisle. Plus, they had more time to enjoy their guests after the ceremony.

The storm clouds were all around and made for a fabulous backdrop. undefinedundefinedI seriously think it was raining across the whole state of Florida...except over Costa d'Este. As soon as the guests began to sit down, the sun broke through the clouds and brought with it a sense of happiness and excitement. undefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedMy favorite part of the reception was the heartfelt toasts.undefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedKatie and Evan - It was a pleasure being a part of your day and I hope you enjoyed your honeymoon.
