Marco Beach Ocean Resort | Taylor + Andy | Marco Island Weddings


Taylor and Andy first met when they lived in Kansas City. They both moved there for different jobs and happened to cross paths at Crossfit downtown in the spring of 2013. Taylor was new to town and Crossfit. Andy was the instructor. They became friends, enjoying each other’s company at Crossfit classes. One Sunday after a class Andy taught, Taylor suggested the whole group go to brunch. What started out as a group activity ended with Taylor and Andy staying hours after, talking and getting to know each other better. They went on their first date that Wednesday and have been together ever since.
In the fall of 2015, Taylor was offered a job promotion that required relocating to Des Moines. Andy knew this relationship was something he couldn’t give up, so he moved to Des Moines with Taylor to start their lives together.
In the summer of 2015 once Andy and Taylor were settled into their new house and life in Des Moines, Andy decided it was time to pop the question. He knew Taylor loved animals and always wanted a French Bulldog. He planned to surprise her with a new frenchie names Frank and propose shortly after. Andy came home with Frank and Taylor was so excited. Andy suggested they go on a walk with Frank. During the walk, Andy bent down to pick up Frank and told Taylor to reach into his pocket to grab a treat he’d brought. Instead of finding a treat, Taylor found a small box with the most beautiful engagement ring.
Taylor and Andy were married on May 7th 2016 on the terrace of the Marco Beach Ocean Resort. The wedding was perfect. Friends and family from all over the country came to celebrate. Taylor and Andy could not have hoped for a more wonderful experience filled with so many happy memories. Please congratulate the newlyweds by leaving your comments below!
