Sorosis Build Wedding, Lakeland, FL
Congratulations to Lizzie and Joey! After 10 years of sharing their love together, they finally tied the knot in front of family and friends. They had a beautiful wedding ceremony on the door step of an Italian Renaissance style building, Sorosis Building. This historic building was built in 1927 and was the first community center in Lakeland. With the beautiful gardens and Lake Morton right across the street, we did’t have to travel far for a great backdrop. This location is perfect weddings of 100 people or less just like Lizzie and Joey’s.
How They Met
Lizzie and Joey met in 2005 at their sisters’ Girl Scout meetings. Their love didn’t blossom at the time. The sisters stopped going meetings. Eventually, the lost touch.
In any case, let’s fast forward a few years to 2009. Lizzie and Joey reconnected at a mutual friend’s birthday party. They didn’t recognize each other at first but Joey made his move. Lizzie played hard-to-get but Joey won her heart. After a few coffee and dinner dates, Lizzie took Joey to meet her parents. Although many years have past, Lizzie’s mom recognized Joey right away from the the Girl Scout days.
As their love blossom over the next several years, this power couple focused on school and careers. However, it wasn’t all about work. In 2013, with the blessing of Lizzie’s parents, Joey popped the question. He proposed onstage at Sig Delt’s philanthropy event. Lizzie was completely surprised.
While their love grows stronger, these two love birds are not only devoted to each other but to their careers. They put off having a wedding. In 2018, they signed the papers and were married. One year later, they finally did it in front of family and friends! Congratulations!
