Coastal Florida Wedding at The Mansion at Tuckahoe- Jensen Beach, Florida


“We're both from the same home town (Gainesville, FL) and attended the same high school and then college (University of North Florida in Jacksonville) but Sean is 6 years older so always at different times. We have the same group of friends from home so we'd see each other when I visited Gainesville but were always dating other people. In October 2016, Sean kissed me and we were "boyfriend/girlfriend" by November 2016. After dating long distance for about 6 months, Sean moved to Jupiter, FL to be with me. We got engaged in July 2018 and scheduled our wedding for Feb 2019. My dad was battling cancer for a few months but we were told it was "totally treatable" so not much of a concern. After an unsuccessful chemo treatment, it became much more serious and we moved to Tampa for 6 weeks to undergo a recently FDA approved treatment called car-t therapy. The process was very scary and no one knew if he'd make it, so in mid-December we decided to post-pone the wedding. By Christmas time, however, the Dr informed us of a miracle... he had beat cancer. Although there's still a high chance the cancer will come back, and he is now permanently paralyzed from the waist down and in rehab, we're hopeful. We decided to re-book the wedding for the same date and here we are!” - Tara (bride)
