Add a perfect couple in love, to a perfect beach, mix in a light Gulf breeze and an ideal temperature and what do you get; a perfect wedding. That was the setting as Kaitlyn Walls of Tampa married Christian Altamirano, of Long Island, New York along the shoreline of fabulous Siesta Key. They were surrounded by family and close friends during a special intimate ceremony.
This amazing couple first met in a photo class when they were high school seniors. They lost track of one another, but two years later they reconnected and went to IHOP on their first date. Kaitlyn explained, "We both had just turned 20, had minimum wage paying jobs, and Christians' son was a few months old, so at the time it's about the nicest place we could afford."
Kaitlyn fell in love with Christian once she realized how happy he made her feel and the freedom he gave her to be herself. Christian related, "I realized Kaitlyn was the one when she loved me regardless of my weaknesses."
Kaitlyn and Christian stay very busy working and happily raising their 2 boys, Christian Jr. (5) and Ezekiel (4). Both working in Tampa, Kaitlyn is a Certified Paraoptometric Technician at St. Lucy's Vision Center and Christian is an overnight Manager at a BJ's Wholesale Club.
Since the beach is a very special place to both of them Christian said, "Siesta Key Beach was exactly what we were looking for for our wedding location." Not long after the wedding Kaitlyn and Christian were off to spend their fabulous honeymoon surrounded by mountains and nature in Jackson Hole, Wyoming.
Kaitlyn and Christian's wedding coordinator was Siesta Key Events. 941-456-WEDS, www.siestakeyevents.com
