Real Weddings: Sierra and Gerard - July 22, 2012

Two families became one, and two cultures meshed for the nuptials of Sierra and Gerard.  Gerard was Sierra's prom date in 2005, and their love has grown ever since. Check out their prom picture...what a cute couple! :-)

Their love continued to grow as students at the University of South Florida and as members of brother/sister Greek-letter organizations.  Gerard took Sierra out to dinner to celebrate her birthday and surprised her with the greatest gift...a marriage proposal! 

Sierra and Gerard's ceremony was held at the gazebo on the green at Hunter's Green Golf and Country Club in New Tampa.  Even though the weather looked ominous, the rain held off so that Sierra and Gerard could have their dream outdoor ceremony.  To honor Sierra's African-American heritage, she and Gerard jumped the broom to signify their marriage and new life together.

Following the ceremony, guests, who traveled from all across the United States, Canada and Haiti, were treated to cocktails, hors d'oeuvres, and a sit-down meal created by the culinary staff of Hunter's Green.  DJ Ron of Universal Music Entertainment made sure the dance floor was full by playing music everyone would enjoy, which included songs honoring Gerard's Haitian heritage.  Sierra's sorority sisters and Gerard's fraternity brothers were not to be outdone, providing their own tributes to the bride and groom.
