Love Story: Kimesha & Christopher

We sat down with another beautiful Wonderland Bride to get her love story. Meet Kimesha and Christopher, who were married on November 17th at the Sonesta on Fort Lauderdale Beach.

Kimesha and Christoper met through a mutual friend in college at FSU around 2006-2007 . It wasn’t until several years later that they reunited at that same mutual friend’s birthday party and began dating.

They dated for about 2 years before he proposed. Christopher planned a getaway to the Florida Keys and treated Kimesha to her favorite snacks and played her favorite songs while on the ride down. As they strolled Mallory Square that evening before dinner, just as the sun was setting and a live band played, Christopher proposed and “it was all tears after that” Kimesha says.

Their wedding took place at the Sonesta on Fort Lauderdale Beach. The couple fell in love with the venue and the breathtaking views from the Penthouse floor. Colors included dusty rose and gold for a perfect combination. Kimesha says her wedding day was perfect and they genuinely had an amazing time. “There was a point at the wedding when Chris and I were just looking around the room in amazement – like this is real. ”
