Fall Inspiration from Filda Konec Photography + Soiree Key West

Fall in Key West is a magical thing.  It’s vibrant, colorful and chock-full of pretty.  And on a day that we celebrate one of fall’s happiest holidays (it’s Halloween, lovelies!), we thought it only appropriate to also celebrate all of that aforementioned South Florida beauty.  I’m talking lush blooms from Soiree Key West, crazy cool paper goods from Invites by Danette and a yummy + gorgeous cake from Key West Cakes.  See it all captured by Filda Konec right here in the full gallery.

The ladies at Soiree Key West decided to take inspiration from Key West’s vibrant culture and mix it up with the city’s lush landscape for an organic, rustic vibe. The florals infuse fresh kale and citrus which compliment the beautiful gardens of Old Town Manor – perfect venue for intimate garden event. The colors are great for Halloween and the upcoming Thanksgiving holidays.

Key West Wedding from Lauren Kinsey

Here at SMP, we’re always on board for a good beach affair. And when it’s shot by the likes of Lauren Kinsey? Even better. Think coastal beauty meets modern design, with splashes of black, white and blush woven in for good measure. To see this wedding is to LOVE it, so let’s keep this pretty party going in the full gallery over here.

From Lauren Kinsey.. Claire and Adam’s wedding was held at the beautiful Casa Marina resort in Key West, Florida. I loved all the modern elements of this wedding, in a color palette of black and white, with a few touches of some blushes and mint.

Claire is a very talented interior designer based in the Atlanta area, and Adam is a private airplane pilot for a corporation. Because Claire is very serious about her design aesthetic, Claire hired
Peggy of Destination Wedding Studio and Peter Gran Bek of Milan Events to execute this wedding to perfection. Claire’s Aunt is also a jewelry designer and designed the couple’s rings as well as many of the pieces of jewelry that Claire accessorized her Kenneth Poole gown with.

From the Bride… Adam and I picked Key West because we went to The Casa Marina on our first trip together. He flew me down there himself in his teeny, tiny plane. While I have always loved Key West (it’s kooky like me), I fell in love with The Casa for its beautiful architecture, with it’s old world and new age feeling.

I’m an interior designer, which means I know exactly what I want all the time. So, I was very involved in every decision. Luckily, I had a team with not only the patience to guide me through the technical details, but also with the bevvy of talent necessary to execute my vision above what I could even imagine. From sketching the save the date, to making scaled models of every single paper good, to sourcing the shell pink runner at the ceremony, the buffalo check tablecloths and the Annabelle’s candy in guests’ welcome boxes – I put my hands in every single detail.

I also loved Reverend Eddie and how he matched his scarf (not the right word) to the runner – do you know he was on Million Dollar Listing!

Key West Wedding from Jessica Lorren

Jessica Lorren’s photography slays me. And that slaying happens each and every time I meet one of her weddings. I think it’s the mixture of dreamy Florida nuptials (Key West in this instance), an eye for just the right moments captured by her lens and of course all of said moments and that tropical backdrop wrapped up in the dreamiest film photography. It’s a slam dunk in our book of favorites and you can see all the pretty festivities seaside right here in the full gallery.

From the Bride…When Ian and I were first engaged we decided the most important part of our wedding was that we get to spend quality time with everyone who is most special in our lives.  The idea of a destination wedding where everyone could “check out” for the weekend was immediately at the top of our list.  Unfortunately, the stress of organizing a vacation for 60 of our closest friends and family quickly became overwhelming and so we procrastinated for a little while.

Fast forward 3 years, and we finally started planning again.  We still wanted a destination wedding but didn’t want the stress of not being able to see anything in person prior to the event so we chose Key West, FL which was only a few hours away from our home in Palm Beach.  Key West has more than enough personality so we decided to keep everything simple and understated. We wanted to have an elegant wedding but still keep the casual Key West feel so we choose the Southernmost Mansion as our home for the weekend. We took our color inspiration from the pretty Victorian house and I made the invites and menu cards to match.  I have a tendency to want to do everything myself and the wedding flowers were at the top of my list.  Fortunately, my incredibly intelligent fiancé told me that I needed to hire a florist so that we could enjoy time with friends and family.  It was one of the smartest decisions we made.  We hired an amazing florist who went above and beyond with our tiny flower budget.

The day ended up being better than I could have ever asked for.  After champagne breakfast with the girls we had our first look, which we originally had not planned on doing.  Thankfully, with the advice of our wonderful photographer Jessica Lorren, it was the second best decision we made.  As much as we wanted to spend time with our loved ones those two hours alone were irreplaceable.  The ceremony was held at the Key West Lighthouse and we were back at the Mansion just in time for a beautiful pink sunset. Jessica captured all the details, even the ones I thought would go unnoticed, and I cannot thank her enough for the memories that she captured for us.

Key West Wedding at Casa Marina from Erin Jean Photography

From Erin Jean Photography… This is an event that I just adore and really wanted to share it with you.  A destination wedding placed in Key West, Florida.  A location near and dear to Lisa and Adam’s heart.  

They are a detail-orientated couple, so they drove a huge van from Wisconsin to the Keys filled with things that would make their wedding truly “theirs.”  From boxes of vintage Key West memorabilia collected over the years to destination and travel objects galore, these two had it all. 

A Key West wedding is something all in its own.  It may be one of the most laid back places in the world. The breeze floats through the air and you find yourself just standing there and taking in a deep breath. What a better place to be wed?!  The beach is white and the coral shore is something you will never forget.  When 100 people travel from the midwest, it’s something special.

Key West Wedding at Casa Marina from Jen + Ashley

So, I kind of want to steal this wedding.  And when I say “kind of,” I mean I most definitely do.  Because this is the kind of day that you think only exists in your dreams, until you see it in all of its gorgeousness in the full gallery captured by Jen + Ashley.  I’m talking the perfect mix of preppy and island chic with bursts of billy ball bouquets from Milan Events, a stunning Casa Marina backdrop (where the bride and groom were engaged!) and a fun-filled reception boasting late night treats (sliders and grilled cheese).  See it all in the full gallery.

From Jen + AshleyKaren and Jeff got engaged in Key West, so it was perfectly fitting for them to say their personal vows overlooking the same pier where he proposed. With the gorgeous Casa Marina Resort and the ombre sea as backdrops, it was everything they had dreamed of when they decided to have a destination wedding. Both living in Washington DC, they knew their guests would jump at the chance to spend a few days in paradise while winter raged on back home.

Surrounded by 110 of their closest friends and family, Karen and Jeff celebrated exactly how they wanted: with an elegant and classy reception with a fun and low-key Key West vibe. Focused on good food, good drinks, and the vibe of the island, Karen and Jeff’s main concern was that their guests feel like they were enjoying a great vacation while a wedding happened to take place. Both the bride and groom are fun-loving, easy-going people, so it was important to them to hand pick vendors that would carry out their vision from hundreds of miles away, without stress or worry.

With a fun color palette that was a contrast to the pastels and colors of the sea, the bridesmaids dresses, billy ball bouquets and succulent boutonnieres added a touch of whimsy and East Coast preppiness to the island affair. With a perfect sunset ceremony, a few minutes together on the same pier where he proposed, late night grilled cheese and hamburgers sliders and a band that kept the energy up and people dancing all night, Karen and Jeff 100% accomplished everything they wanted to with their wedding. We were more than honored to have been a part!

From Sarah of 13:13 PhotographyYessy and I could not have asked for a more fun, lovable, and welcoming couple than Francesca and Jeff! The first night we arrived in Key West, we went on a beautiful sunset sail with them and their families. It’s always so wonderful to get to know the bride and groom before their wedding day and such a treat to get to know their family and friends as well. The next day they had their ceremony and reception at the Audubon House — it was beautiful! We absolutely loved their style and their personal touches. Francesca’s stunning dress and shoes were from J.Crew. She wore her grandmother’s necklace, and they all sat down at a long dinner table that welcomed all of their friends and family. It was perfect.
