Wedding Bites: Mr. & Mrs. Cramer {9.17.17}

Congratulations Nina & Chet!

Nina and Chet tied the knot on Sunday, September 17th 2017 at the Tavares Pavilion on the Lake

I’m not sure what was more charming; Nina and Chet’s “Old Florida” Theme or the adorable Dachshund puppy that entertained Nina and her bridesmaids while they were getting ready.

They decided to have their ceremony outside on the pier and their reception inside the beautiful pavilion

What a fun crowd they were! You couldn’t help but laugh with the groomsmen

After the ceremony the guests headed inside to enjoy some delicious food, refreshing mojitos and dance their night away

All about the details

Chet owns Bee Southern Honey Company and had these personalized honey jars made for the guests


Chet and Nina also had personalized koozies for the guests!
