Just Married: Kristin Kurzydlo and Colin Marvin
Bride’s parents: James and Christine Kurzydlo
Groom’s parents: Stephen and Claudia Marvin
How the couple met
Kristin Kurzydlo’s family owns a veterinary clinic and Colin Marvin’s family have been long-time clients. His mom came into the clinic and asked her if she was dating anyone special (which she was not). A few days later, Colin sent her a message on Facebook asking if she would like to join him for drinks. After two weeks of waiting to respond, she finally responded “yes.”
The couple planned a long weekend at Disney World, their favorite spot. Colin kept saying that they were going to a hotel for a buffet dinner. They went to the Grand Floridian for drinks beforehand and when they were about to leave for said buffet, Kristin kept saying that they should just get some appetizers at the Grand Floridian since she didn’t want a big meal. Colin was pretty adamant that they had to go to the buffet, and as they were about to leave, Colin pulled her aside to an elevator where a man dressed in a tux was waiting. He took the couple to a private floor, which had a candlelight dinner for two waiting. Colin then proposed and the newly engaged couple got to watch the Magic Kingdom fireworks from their private table on the balcony.
The wedding and reception
The wedding took place March 29, at The Ringling Museum on a day with 70% chance of rain as well as tornado warnings. Luckily, the sun came out 10 minutes before the ceremony started and the planning team was able to move the ceremony back down to the courtyard at the last minute. Kristin’s father’s best friend (since he was 14 years old) officiated the ceremony.
The reception took place in the loggia, on both sides of the courtyard. The couple’s cake paid homage to all things Sarasota and the band got everyone out on the dance floor. One special guest was Kristin’s grandmother, who attended the wedding at the age of 103 years old.
For their honeymoon, the couple returned to the place where it all started, the Grand Floridian Resort at Walt Disney World. They had their first dinner as a married couple at Victoria and Albert’s, one of two AAA Five Diamond restaurants in Florida. They spent the next seven days living out their fairytale in the happiest place on earth.
