Thanks to our BSB Vendor, Misty Miotto Photography, for sharing is this community-driven wedding celebration with us! Misty is an amazing testimony to community service and has helped organize the Central Florida Heart Gallery and countless other non-profit events for years. She is also one of the first cheerleaders and supporters of BSB and we are forever grateful for the encouragement she has poured out onto our mission from the very start of our journey.
He was a College professor with a Ph.D. from Harvard University who’s ideas could make the world a better place, she was a free-spirited bird who had a heart that could wrap around the world three times over. They met through their love of music and are both a part of an amazing band called Passerine. Together they had a love that could change the world. David teaches at the New College of Florida in Sarasota (where they were married) and Carmela is a birth worker at the Rosemary Birthing Home in Sarasota and she helps to bring babies into this world in the most beautiful natural way. Oh and that Big White ball of fur well that’s Gryphon and if you couldn’t tell already he’s part of the family. The bride found her dress at a local consignment shop and reinvented it to be her own. Their rings were designed by a Sarasota based artisan jeweler also. They had the groom’s son make the cake, he worked for years with a local cake baker. The couple opted for a potluck reception and involved their community of family and friends every step of the process. When these two lovebirds have time off they can be found traveling the world on different adventures and giving back!
