Lorraine Rigby and Craig Lea


It wasn’t easy for British bride Lorraine and her fiancé, Craig, to plan their Florida nuptials, as they were organizing the event from England. “We spent 18 months planning our wedding, which was very difficult at times with the distance and the time differences between the U.K. and Florida,” Lorraine says.

The couple had traveled to Florida three months into their relationship on holiday and fallen in love—with each other and with the area. So when Craig popped the question, it made sense to hold the event in the Sunshine State. Because a number of their friends and family couldn’t make it to the big day in the States, Lorraine and Craig live-streamed the wedding, and their virtual guests gathered across the pond, Champagne in hand, to watch the ceremony.
