Cheryl Hilpert and Christopher (C.J.) Rhody
Cheryl and C.J. hosted a vintage romance-themed wedding ceremony and embodied the Florida spirit for a tropical tiki-themed reception on a beautiful autumn day. Cheryl and C.J. met shortly after Cheryl moved from Kansas in search of adventure and sunshine in Florida. The couple had an instant connection, and the rest is, as they say, history.

Favorite Moment: The most special moment of our wedding day was seeing my groom as I walked down the aisle and getting married. There is nothing quite like knowing you are about to begin an amazing journey of a lifetime with your soul mate. A close second was glancing over my shoulder during the ceremony and seeing my dad wiping away tears from his eyes; I almost lost it.
