Michelle Troise and Krista Capone met 15 years ago at a New Year's Eve party. The two ladies spent together a lot of time as friends for five years. Friends that eventually became more than just friends! For the past decade, they've been in love traveling and laughing together as a couple.
In the years they have spent together there has been a move to another city, an addition to the family (furbaby- MOJO), and several trips to Key West! In true Krista and Michelle fashion ( fun and spur of the moment), Michelle proposed in Key West, post-beach, pre-booze cruise, with a light up plastic blinking ring. In lieu of responding, Krista ran to the bathroom! It was probably the combination of being slightly sea sick and nervous! Eventually, she said yes and the rest of the evening was smooth sailing.
Their engagement would end up lasting two years, thanks to Hurricane Irma! The Sunset Pier sustained structural damage during Hurricane Irma, forcing the ladies to push back the wedding from May 4th to November 2nd this year. Like so many couples affected by the Hurricane, Michelle and Krista kept their plans and for that, I think the island repaid them with a gorgeous November!
The ladies exchanged vows oceanside in front of their friends and family at the beautiful Fort Zachary Taylor Beach. After the ceremony, guests were delivered to Ocean Key in Key West Style on the trolley trains! The party continued after dinner and a gorgeous cake cutting. Not even a little rain kept everyone from dancing the night away and celebrating the strong history and love that these two ladies share!
Congratulations Krista and Michelle!
