A Story of Cherry Coke, Dunkin Dounts, and Answered Prayers on this Wedding at Grand Plaza
A Christ-Centered ceremony for Yolanda & Jimmy on this wedding at the Grand Plaza Beachfront Resort, St Pete Beach, Florida.
Yolanda & Jimmy hung out with mutual friends long before they even dated. Their fathers raced together and they both attended the Saturday night races when they were younger. Who would have guessed that Yolanda posting an image on facebook about cherry coke would spark a flame. Yolanda had made a list on what she wanted in a man and prayed over that list during a church service she attended. At around the same time, Jimmy’s friends Robyn and Jim told him one holiday about their story on how they met one another by making a specific list and praying over it. Jimmy decided he would do just that, and he started praying. One day after Jimmy posted on Yolanda’s facebook animage about cherry coke he asked “what is everyone doing tonight?” Yolanda responded, “I’m going to church you want to join?”. Jimmy took her up on her offer, especially since the first thing on his list of the girl he wanted, was “that she would invite him to church”. They went to church and then to Dunkin Donuts afterwards and talked for hours which was the beginning of many days together.
They testify that God truly joined them together when the time was right and when they both had the faith that was needed for a great relationship. Their first step was to realize that without God, they would be alone and something would be missing. Yolanda states “Sometimes we hope to find purpose in another human being, but God is the only One who can give us this.” Once they both let go and Let God, He really gave them what they longed for. They fit so perfect together which is the result of God being in the center of their Relationship.
The reception was in the Imperial Ballroom at the Grand Plaza. Our DJ Dave provided the entertainment and Uplighting.
