Lezlee and Sean’s Destination Wedding :: Marco Island, Florida :: Scenes from a Rehearsal Dinner//May 16, 2009

I’ve never seen it rain so hard in my life! Suzie, and I hit the road early yesterday morning and when I say it poured on the drive down, I mean it POURED! Nothing like an anxious car ride! Not only was I worrying about our safety, I was stressed for poor Lezlee and Sean who had planned a fabulous outdoor rehearsal dinner for their guests!

We finally made it to Marco Island and well, see for yourself!


Lezlee and Sean hail from Minnesota and it was fantastic to finally meet them in person! About 45 of their friends and family made the trip and they were all in the dark about the fun rehearsal dinner that the couple had planned. Suzie and I kept our lips zipped as we all boarded the trolley and headed off for the fun.


The whole trolley cheered as we pulled up to the dock and everyone realized we were about to board the Marco Island Princess for a sunset cruise!
