Just Married: Kayla Lewis and Josh Olsen
Bride’s parents: John and Mary Lewis
Groom’s parents: Robb and Terry Olsen
Kayla Lewis and Josh Olsen met through a mutual friend during their sophomore year of college at Elon University, but didn’t start dating until two years later when they reconnected during spring break in Sarasota. Josh then proposed June 8, 2013, at Disney World’s Animal Kingdom Lodge.
The couple went on their first vacation together to Josh’s family home on Siesta Key after graduating college in June 2012. They visited the Ringling Museum and Cá d’ Zan during that trip and Kayla knew she wanted to marry him at that spot someday. Almost exactly two years later, they were married in the courtyard of the John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art on May 3.
“I don’t think anything could have made our wedding any more perfect for us,” says Kayla. “The food, the music, the flowers, the photo booth, the cake … the whole style was elegantly comfortable.”
The food options included all of the couple’s favorite things — a Philly cheese steak station, make your own taco station with a queso fountain, a macaroni and cheese station with lobster mac n’ cheese and mini chicken and waffles were passed as hors d’oeuvres.
Following the wedding, the couple honeymooned in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic.
