With a rainy Wedding Day for Sonni + Nick, they would not let the rain wedding day phase them. They embraced it. After all, it rained on both Sonni’s and Nick’s parent’s wedding day as well, so the tradition was kept alive. It is good luck always, right?
Sonni was originally from SE Missouri & Nick from Philadelphia. Sonni moved to Pensacola in 2020 & met Nick a short time later. Both are engineers, & honestly didn’t expect much out of their first date since they both typically didn’t date people with similar work backgrounds.
The first date lasted over 5 hours; they went out again the next night for 6 more hours, & again 2 days later. They felt like they knew each other for years from the beginning.
Nick proposed while they were on vacation in St. Martin & the rest is history.
On this on and off rainy wedding day, this did not stop them from embracing the day! Sonni + Nick both wore an angel pin of Nick’s grandmother. His grandmother wore an angel pin every day. Nick’s grandmom was not with them at the wedding, but her spirit could be felt.
It was classic, easy going, and fun dancing away to music provided by 2nd Groove Showband. The Wedding Day energy could only be described as LOVE. Love from their families, their friends, and a new marriage. Truly magical and special. It was the best day!

When Sonni + Nick first toured Palafox Wharf, Nick fell in love with the stunning hand carved wood cocktail bar details. They loved that everything was within walking distance for their guests. To them it was icing on the cake, that the Venue was on the water. Thank you, Sonni + Nick, for letting us be a part of your special Wedding Day!
