Casual + Elegant Island Wedding in the Florida Keys

If you’re looking for a classic affair with a relaxing vibe look no further because this beachside soiree is about to be your jam. Blooming with Parrish Designs florals and a barefoot dance party, this island celebration is sure to inspire. From the casually elegant ceremony to the rip roarin’ reception, Kallima Photography snapped it all in THE VAULT!

Beach Resort

From the Bride… Tom boy, soccer player/CPA nerd meets tough guy/hockey player, with a soft side through mutual best friend, and the rest is history. T and I live in Chicago, but always wanted a warm-weathered, beach-chic, destination wedding, where the nights are long and hot and flip flops are always welcome. My family has been visiting Islamorada for over 50 years, and it seemed like the perfect spot; laid-back island vibe, with fabulous accommodations and dining, and even better views. We wed at Pierre’s Restaurant, on the beach at 6pm, with the sun still high in the May sky. A solo guitarist played the processional, our life-long friend married us at the edge of the ocean, all the bridesmaids and I sang along as our friend played Bob Marley’s Is This Love on the trombone. It was perfect. The food at Pierre’s was phenomenal (it always is). We danced the night away to Clint Wiley’s None Other, the dance floor was packed from start to finish; a jubilant, sweaty, barefooted dance party that rocked. Kallima Photography captured our night perfectly, every detail, special moment, friends and family. We are forever grateful for all those that made our special night so wonderful!

The weekend was full of love, laughter and fun activities – beach cocktail party at Cheeca Lodge, softball at the Islander, Rehearsal Dinner on the patio at The Islander, team golf on Cheeca’s par 3 course, wedding at Pierre’s, and Sunday Brunch on the Sunset Room and Deck at Cheeca. Guests fished, kayaked, paddle boarded, and sunned; it was the best weekend ever, and we wish we could do it all over again!
