January 25th – a beautiful day for a wedding. As we look back we remember the love that filled Club Lake Plantation and the love that was shared between this special couple. 

Mayra and Chris met at the UCF Police Department where they both work – they quickly fell in love and Chris knew he wanted to make Mayra his wife as well as become one big family with their kids. 

Rough, emotional news hit Mayra’s family. They were told her father was going to pass away and that he needed to be moved to Hospice. Chris wanted to be able to ask his permission and for him to be able to witness this special moment. Days before Mayra’s father passed – Chris got down on one knee in the Hospice room in front of Mayra’s entire family. It was an extremely emotional moment but also extremely special. 

When it came to choosing a wedding venue – it was all God’s plan. Club Lake was booked on the day Chris and Mayra wanted to get married. They still decided to take a tour and instantly fell in love with the natural beauty. After five minutes of touring – the date they wanted miraculously opened up due to a cancellation. It was meant to be. 

Flash forward to January 25th – it was finally time to get Mayra and Chris married. Mayra spent the morning getting ready alongside her closest friends, and Chris’ daughter. 

Family and friends quickly gathered under the gorgeous oak trees – Mayra got her gorgeous dress on and it was finally time for her to be escorted down the aisle. 

Chris’ daughter and Mayra’s son walked the aisle before the wooden doors re-opened for Mayra. 

The gorgeous doors opened, family and friends stood and Mayra looked like a glowing princess. 

She walked the first half of the aisle by herself and met her two brother’s halfway to walk her the rest of the way. It was a moment for her to think of her father and for him to be remembered in a special way. 

After a personal ceremony, and this family finally become one – the new Mr. & Mrs. were pronounced husband and wife and shared their first kiss as Mr. & Mrs. Gavette. 

Guests were invited to share in an evening full of fun dancing, laughter, delicious food and lots of love. The reception space was elegantly decorated with twinkling lights and lots of greenery. It was so simple yet so elegantly beautiful. 

For the delicious cake – Sweets by Iris beautifully decorated with greenery. The cake tasted SO good and looked so perfect within the reception space. 

This couple danced the night away alongside their favorite people – it was amazing to be a part of.
