STEVE + CRISSI | RUSTY PELICAN - TAMPA,FL WEDDING

Steve (an airline captain) and Crissi (a flight attendant) met when they ended up on the same route together. Steve has really good instincts when it comes to people, and after one conversation with Crissi, he felt an immediate connection. That led to Steve commuting back and forth for the first year of their relationship between Chicago and Florida. Shortly after, Crissi decided to leave the windy city to be closer to Steve and his children. Navigating through a long distance relationship in the beginning, traveling different schedules, and blending a family hasn't always been easy. But in the end, it was all worth it. You won't find anyone more dedicated and loving than these two. Not only for each other, but anyone who has the privilege to be in their circle. 

Travel was, and still is, a big part of their life. Therefore, it was only natural to incorporate it into their wedding day. From the airline ticket place cards, to the airport code table markers, and the luggage tag napkin holders--it was a perfect representation of how their love story began. 

Steve + Crissi--thank you for allowing me the great honor of documenting your special day. You two are one of a kind and I truly wish you all the best. Much love-Elaine
