Ann Marie and Phillip met through work when Ann Marie reserved a private tour for Thriller Speedboats. She wasn’t going to go since she was working but Phillip insisted that she join them. It was a beautiful sunny Florida day and she couldn’t resist. She told herself, “why not?” A couple days after the tour Ann Marie and Phillip arranged to have their very first date. On this date, they could tell that they loved everything about each other!


Phillip proposed to Ann Marie by customizing their new puppy’s dog tag. A friend of theirs came over to visit their new addition and that’s when Ann noticed something different about her puppy. There was a tag on the collar, she looked at the tag and there was a picture of Ann and Phillip together as well as, “will you marry me?”… and of course she said yes!

Ann Marie and Phillips’ wedding was directly on the water which provided amazing waterfront views of Tampa as well as the Sunset… and boy did they get an AWESOME sunset! The views outside as well as inside of their beautifully decorated reception room were enchanting. The 17th day of the month is an important day for Ann Marie and Phillip. It was when they had their first date and now, it is the date of their marriage.


In a “tale as old as time,” congratulations Ann Marie and Phillip on becoming husband and wife!
