Key West Coral Wedding

Key West and pretty weddings go together like two peas in a pod. With stunning scenery and plenty o’ sunshine, all you really need is a punch of color and happy couple to pull off a dream day. Sweet Tea Photography knocked the photos of this pink and coral love fest straight out of the park and you can get your hands on every capture right over here.

From Sweet Tea Photography… Colleen Layman and Seric Fallon met during their brief experiment with online dating. The two met at a dive bar in South Beach called The Abbey, where they quickly realized that they both suffered from wanderlust….spending hours upon hours sharing their favorite places and adventures.

After two years of dating, Seric proposed. “It was New Year’s Eve and we went to a restaurant in Coral Gables. It was, of course, packed, and our table was very close to a few other couples. Just after the main course, he couldn’t wait any more, and took out the ring and asked me right there at the table. It was so loud in the restaurant that only a few people noticed, but we felt like we were the only people in the place. I said Yes and he put the ring on my finger… and then dessert arrived! It was a great way to ring in the New Year (pun intended!),” Colleen recalled.

Key West was the first place they talked about getting married and it was the first place they thought of for the reception. During the beginning of the planning process, Colleen and Seric were living in Washington, DC. Fortunately they both found new job opportunities back in Miami, and made the big move back to the city where they first fell in love.

With the help of a talented wedding planner, Kelly Fowler of Save the Date, they were able to make the big move and get settled back into Miami while planning their special day. They couldn’t have gotten it all done without her guidance.

When searching for the perfect venue, Colleen and Seric traveled down to Key West with Colleen’s parents to check out the variety of venues. They instantly fell in love with the Southernmost House for it’s colors, style, and history. They loved that they could fill all of the rooms with their friends and family. Colleen said “It was like having a mansion all to ourselves in the middle of Key West. We felt like we were welcoming people into our home.”

The look and wedding style was inspired by Key West’s breathtaking sunset of soft peaches and teal tones. They liked to describe the look as being romantic, vintage, with an unfussy prettiness. Colleen’s favorite detail was the menu and table assignment display. They found a font that fit their theme and bought some brown craft paper to print it on. It was so simple but elegant.

From The Bride…Raymond and I were set up in August 2012 by a mutual family friend who had a sneaking suspicion we would hit it off. He was teaching at the University of Michigan and I was teaching high school in Atlanta. Our entire relationship was spent flying around the US meeting up to see each other. With Raymond’s job in the Navy about to send him back to sea within the year an engagement came in April 2013 while he was in the middle of a move. With only one weekend available in his hectic schedule available for him to get married before having to report to work in Hawaii our date was set but we had big decisions to decide on. Both being from different home towns and military friends and family all over the country we decided we wanted a location where everyone could come together, relax, and celebrate with us. What better place for weather in November then Key West. With two moves and a hectic fall in our future a good local planner was a must. Having fallen in love with the work of Jessica Lorren several years back, photography was taken care of as well. My vision of the wedding was to play off the natural colors of Key West and trusted my local planner Kelly to find me the best vendors Key West had to offer. A beautiful romantic, organic, and patriotic wedding was exactly what Kelly brought together for us and I couldn’t have asked for a more perfect day!

DIY Pastel Islamorada Wedding

I spy a piña colada and what looks like a strawberry mojito. Quite possibly two of my favorite tropical concoctions, ever. And just one of the many reasons I fall for beach weddings every single time. This colorful Morada Bay Beach Cafe soiree has me with fingers crossed, hoping the next wedding invite in my mailbox is jet-set to sun and sand. In the meantime, this cheerful gallery from Darling Juliet will do!

From the beautiful Bride… My family was so involved in helping with our wedding! My mother (Libby Stout) made all the burlap and cloth table runners and she made the burlap flower cones that were on the aisle. I made the pinata and other various decorations. All of the china and other decor was purchased at Goodwills, garage sales and thrift stores.

One of our favorite moments was the actual ceremony. Kristi walked down the aisle to an acoustic version of Europe’s The Final Countdown, which we thought was awesome! The decorations that our florist (The Blonde Tulip) and my mother put together were beautiful!
