From White-Klump PhotographyWhat do you think of when you think Key West? Obviously the gorgeous crystal blue and teal waters of both the Atlantic and the Gulf, but it’s so much more than that! Not only did we want to showcase the beach and pristine waters, but obviously the rich history, adorned with local artists and whimsical charm. First of all, we chose the Fort Zachary Fort for the swoon worthy setting. Not only is it located right on the water, but it offers itself as a National Historic Landmark for the US Navy which Key West is greatly known for. Also, we wanted to incorporate vintage pieces such as flowered tea cups, lanterns, and mismatched chairs for the ceremony to bring in the eclectic vibe. Succulents,old driftwood, crates and branches from the fort served as a lovely centerpiece for the table scape and cake. We also used local artists, Jill Regalia and Invites by Danette to incorporate the local flair by using Key West post cards as the Save the Dates as well as delicate hand-made jewelry for the couple. Etsy designers, Bloom Bazaar and Jeannie Lee created completely original designs for the headpieces and dress to show a soft but fanciful feel to the shoot.

From the beautiful Bride…Greg and I were engaged over Thanksgiving while we were vacationing in New York City with his family. We are both big fans of the outdoors so he picked a quiet spot in Central Park. I immediately began crying out of excitement but was able to squeeze out a “Yes” through the tears! Two days later I was at Kleinfeld’s bridal picking out my wedding dress. I love the simplicity and feminine touches of Romona Keveza’s dresses. The beaded belt was the final selling point for me.

I’ve moved around a lot (currently living in state number 6) and my family is spread all over the country. Greg grew up in Boca Raton and has an amazing (and big) family that all lives in South Florida. We immediately fell in love with the outdoor ceremony space at the Addison. The Banyan trees and the old architectural charms are truly unique and special. We booked a Saturday evening in Mid-March. The weather cooperated perfectly! There was not a cloud in the sky and there was the most amazing full moon at night.

The most important part of our wedding was the ceremony. It was incredibly personal and I do not think there was a dry eye in the house. We decided to have one of our good friends marry us. This was his first time officiating a wedding ceremony so he was a little nervous but it was the most perfect ceremony I could have ever asked for. We really wanted the ceremony to reflect who we are and the kind of marriage we hope to have. We wrote the entire ceremony ourselves and had our siblings read. We also wrote our own vows which was more emotional than I could have imagined!

We incorporated a lot of small details into the wedding from our friends and families. Greg’s great aunt said the most thoughtful prayer before dinner, our toasting flutes were a gift from the Best Man’s parents while they were living in India, I carried my Grandmother’s broach on my bouquet and I wore a veil that belonged to one of my bridesmaids from her wedding day.

Boca by Design did an outstanding job with the floral arrangements and décor. I must say this was the hardest decision for me to make. I loved the Addison for its innate beauty and did not want to take away from everything that I loved about the venue. Brett really understood my vision and absolutely blew me away with the final product.

Before the wedding Greg and I made a pact to spend as much of the evening together as possible. We tried to stay glued to each other throughout the evening so we could share all of the memories together. You always hear stories about all of the little details that can go wrong at weddings. Thanks to the wonderful staff and the Addison and our amazing wedding planner, Chasity Navarro, we had the most flawless night and it was more beautiful than we ever expected. It was the best night of my life!

Backyard Tampa Engagement Session

When you grew up in a backyard as beautiful as this one (hello, lucky Bride!), it only makes sense to call up Jacqui Cole, put on a stunning LWD, pop some bubbly and get snappin’. Because the result is bound to be something you’ll treasure forever and ever. See so much more lovely from Jacqui in the gallery.

From the gorgeous Bride-to-be… Chase and I met at the University of Florida Levin College of Law in the first week of law school. We were in the same section, meaning we had all of our first year classes together, and began dating soon after we spoke at a party Chase and his roommates had thrown for the first year students.

Chase completely surprised me with his proposal in February and it was absolutely better than anything I could have imagined! Chase’s sister told us that she was going to be coming to Jacksonville with her husband and their adorable daughter to visit for the weekend. Chase told me that Friday night we were going to go to dinner with his dad, step-mom, and two little brothers and then pick his sister, brother-in-law and niece up from the airport. When we pulled up to the restaurant in his neighborhood for dinner, Chase said his dad was running late and wanted him to look at something on the dock behind the restaurant. We walked down to the dock and I asked him what we were looking at. He just looked at me with a sweet nervous grin and tilted his head, then he got down on one knee, told me he loved me and asked me to marry him. My response was yes! but are you serious?! because I will still in total shock. He then pointed out a photographer that had been documenting the entire proposal. As she took more pictures of us, I looked up and saw my sister and her boyfriend, who live in Washington D.C. and my parents coming down the stairs with Chase’s family and I burst into tears. We then had dinner in a private room of the restaurant with our families to celebrate.

The next day, his family threw a brunch for my extended family to come over, telling them it was a surprise graduation brunch to get them there, since they didn’t know about the proposal. We spent the entire weekend celebrating with our families and I couldn’t have asked for anything more perfect! Chase had been working on custom designing my ring since Thanksgiving and even had little rose gold H’s placed on each side for my new last name.

Our engagement shoot was taken in my parents backyard and in a family friend’s backyard down the street. We chose the location after our photographer, Jacqui told us to choose somewhere meaningful. My parents home is the house I grew up in and the only placed I have ever lived other than in Gainesville at school. Our proposal shots were taken where Chase grew up and it was only fitting to have the engagement shots taken where I grew up! Chase and I are getting married in April at Innisbrook Golf Resort in Palm Harbor. We absolutely cannot wait! Chase says that he is most excited about seeing me in my dress and I am most excited about seeing him for the first time that day when I am walking down the aisle.
