I first had the pleasure of meeting Melissa at the 30-A, Florida icon of coffee shops, Miss Lucille’s at Gulf Place.  Along with discussion of the details of her wedding, I was delighted to hear about her life in New Orleans, her professional goals and her and Sammy’s plans for their future.    Melissa and Sammy’s wedding took place this Easter weekend at The Santa Rosa Golf and Beach Club.  It is a venue that seen our Dolce Duo perform often over the last seven or so years.

The bluff-side club house, under the tending eye of wedding and events coordinator Christine Walker was beautifully decorated echoing the simplicity of the bamboo and orchid altar that had been installed on the beach. grey-wedding-3

As guests gathered on the beach for the ceremony, Dolce Duo played music of Bach, Faure and others.   Reverend Troulles guided Melissa and Sammy through their vows with a wonderful mix of warmth and humor that emphasized the depth of love and commitment the bride and groom share for each other.

At the conclusion of their vows, guests were asked to participate in a shell ceremony showing support for the new couple.
