St. Petersburg Times society writer Amy Scherzer profiles Tampa Bay area couples with interesting proposals or wedding tales in her Heart Beat column. This week she writes about Alexandrea Denis and Tye Reedy, who met at the Krewe of Venus ball in 2004.
"Soon as she smiled at me, I knew,'' Reedy said. The relationship flourished as Reedy attended West Point and Denis went to the University of South Florida.
Reedy and Denis married in South Tampa June 20, just two weeks before Reedy leaves for his second tour of duty in Iraq.
