Missi Paschoal and Royce Brown met through an online dating site and their love of professional football kept them together. Even though Missi is a die hard Patriots fan, Royce tried to convert her to become a Panthers fan. She challenged him to try. He made a bold move and sent flowers to her work that were blue and White (Panthers colors). It was all history from there!
This fun and eccentric couple love to travel. In the Bahamas in July of 2019, the couple were window shopping. Missi tried on a few engagement rings for fun and they left to go eat. What she didn't know is Royce went back for the ring! He proposed later that night in their room before heading to the Florida Keys the next morning.
They made great use of their time in the Keys, and started visiting wedding venues. The wedding was originally planed fro 4.20.20 but COVID-19 had other plans. After much deliberation and a reschedule to 7.14.20, the couple alongside their blended families said I Do oceanside at the stunning Ocean Resort & Spa.
The couple decided to keep the rescheduled date because "we wanted to have the experience before the COVID situation got worse and because most could still come. Wanted to be able to share our love and the love of the Keys with our close family and friends." The groom was able to watch the bride's son walk her down the aisle in beautiful Key West, Florida. Afterwards the couple shared their heartfelt vows privately and shortly following they shared their first official family photograph as a family. Love.
Congratulations to this amazing couple. I am so happy the wedding day of your dreams worked out this year!
