A FRIDAY THE 13TH MEMORY OF A LIFETIME
by Trebor Britt
Perfect temperatures and a light Gulf breeze on the Siesta Key shoreline provided the perfect setting for Lindsey Levy of Mentor, OH and Ryan Pesch of Apopka, FL to become husband-and-wife. As this couple looked into each other's eyes during the ceremony, it was obvious to all their close family and friends just how much love they had for one another. All this taking place on a spectacular Friday the 13th morning for this fabulous young couple. Unlike most people, 13 has always been a lucky number for them. Lindsey related, "We are not very traditional people at all, so Friday the 13th seemed like a fun choice. Plus, we are not night people. We both love brunch and day drinking so we also wanted to get married in the morning and then have the whole weekend to spend with our family and friends."
Like a lot of couples who become burnt out trying to meet someone in a bar, Lindsey and Ryan made their love connection on the internet through match.com. Neither of them had any idea that their first date in an Irish bar in downtown Orlando would be the beginning of a lifetime relationship. Their first date led to their first kiss and Lindsey commented, "and we've been inseparable ever since."
They both wanted a beach wedding that was not too far from home so Florida friends and family could easily attend, and fell in love with Siesta Key after a recommendation from a friend. "We love the soft sand, the laid back atmosphere — it was perfect."
After their fabulous honeymoon in beautiful Napa Valley and San Francisco they will return to Orlando where Lindsey works as a Social Media Manager for Olive Garden, Darden Restaurants and Ryan owns Central Graphics, and creates original graphic designs.
