Hideaway Beach Club Wedding | Alexis + David | Marco Island Florida


When David, the groomsmen walked Alexis the bridesmaid down the aisle, The story unfolds that he will be walking her back up the aisle as his wife someday! That’s where their story begins in Dayton Ohio, the bride’s home town in the backyard of the Zimmers house. A handsome, tan, beautiful smile, well dressed, “shy” groomsman meets and extrodinary, beautiful, outgoing, happy, bridesmaid in cowboy boots. He never stopped calling, actually picking up the phone and calling…. not texting! He lived in Tampa and she lived in Marco Island. She would take him out fishing 20 miles off shore, bike riding, walking the beach, and watching the sunset. He would show her a good time in Tampa with all the events, concerts, parades, Bucs games, Gator Games, fine dining and best night life has to offer. After a year of driving three hours back and forth they both graduated with their Masters degree and then she moved to Tampa and he kept calling…..


On a family vacation on a sunset paddle board adventure with a bottle of champagne and the best question a girl could be asked, David Said, “WILL YOU BE MY WIFE” and Alexis Said, “YES”! Then a huge rainstorm came and they drifted down towards the horizon in the keys celebrating their true love story as Alexis and David. What you may not know of this great proposal is the wind picked up, the water got choppy and was a little too rough to turn around and paddle back upstream so they drifted quickly downstream, had to climb out on slippery rock pile w/ the bottle of champagne and paddle board and called the brides dad and let him know, “we are engaged……. can you come rescue us?” and he came willingly with the Grooms sister and friends, and then they celebrated with family and friends at the Lobster house and lived happily ever after.
