With fourth of July festivities just around the corner, this classic Florida affair seemed like just the right wedding to send everyone off to their holiday celebrations. It’s the best mix of Key West – gorgeous beach views, a beautiful pastel palette and a sea of classic details crafted by Just Save The Date along with florals by Milan Events. Now add stunning imagery into the mix by Jessica Lorren Photography plus a handsome Groom in uniform and the result is pure perfection. See it all here.

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!

Obsessed is quickly becoming an understatement the more time I spend in the gallery of this ridiculously pretty wedding from 1313 Photography. The bride’s custom gown (which she designed herself!), the groom in seersucker, the ridiculous Key West beach… everything from to the hair & makeup by Marie-Pierre to the toes in the sand is calling me on this cold, cold February day!

From the stunning bride… Cody and I met through a mutual friend in college and dated for 5 years. The last two years of our relationship was long distance but it made our relationship so much stronger and our love grew so much in those last years.
Our wedding was perfect in my opinion and I wouldn’t change anything about it. It was simple, sweet and intimate, exactly what I wanted. We got married on Sunset Key in Key West. My family and I vacationed there when I was younger and when I was seven I told my parents that I was going to get married there one day, I don’t think they really believed me. I am so lucky and fortunate to actually have had my dream wedding in my dream location.
I wanted classic and elegant everything with pastels and of course bows! Our photographers captured the whole day and all the details so perfectly. Photos are so important to have because you truly forget about a lot that happens and having those means everything. Choosing great photographers to capture it all is tough but we were so lucky to have found the perfect match for us in 1313 Photography!
The whole day was just so relaxing. The men went fishing while all the ladies laid by the pool and beach, it was perfect and the most non-stressful way to do a wedding. I highly encourage a destination wedding to everyone, enjoy the special time with the closest friends and family, it doesn’t get much better than that.

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.
