Key West Destination Wedding by Richard Bell Photography

Here at LWB, we’re always on board for a good Florida affair. Think coastal beauty meets modern design, with splashes of lime on white with pops of fuschia thrown in for good measure. Held at the retro cool Casa Marina Resort in Key West and snapped beautifully by Richard Bell Photography, this destination wedding is a waltz of loveliness, from the angelic-faced bride in her Jimmy Choo’s right through to the cute key lime cupcakes and lush outdoor cocktail bar and beyond!

From the bride

When Dan and I were planning, we were going back and forth on where we should go to celebrate our marriage. We surely knew we wanted a destination wedding, as we love how it forces all of your family and friends to enjoy an extended time with one another. When we ultimately decided on Key West, we knew it would be perfect – as we would be able to blend elegance with the laid back style Key West has to offer, which is exactly what the Casa Marina is able to provide. 

The natural beauty of Key West and the resort is what inspired us the most. The resort is exquisitely designed, and the reception room is not your typical ballroom — it has simple candelabra chandeliers, and deep hard wood floors throughout. It does not have any of that “glitz and glam”, which is something we truly appreciated.

It was also extremely important for us to know that our guests felt loved and appreciated — having almost 70 of your nearest and dearest travel from all over to share in this special moment is enough to make your heart burst – and we needed them to know that we felt it! We organized a backyard BBQ bash at the house we were renting, and hosted an open bar welcome party for everyone the night before at one of our favorite local jaunts, Willie T’s.

Time for a dose of luxe and glam with this majestic wedding at the Renaissance Vinoy resort. Boasting not one, but two gorgeous bridal gowns, the stunning bride lights up the lens like a Hollywood star and her gorgeous man comes a close second. With a beautiful outdoor ceremony, lavender bridesmaids and a ballroom reception that is opulent in every sense, this amazing party shot by Gary Kaplan Photography, certainly does impress!

From the photographer:

You couldn’t ask for a more beautiful couple both inside and out. When we first met with Ergen & Vasiva they told us they had a large family, but once we arrived at the wedding we quickly figured out that that was an underestimate! They have a HUGE family! They were so very fortunate that so many of their friends and family were able to celebrate their marriage with them. Vasiva chose two dresses for her wedding and stayed on point with the latest bridal trends for wedding gowns. Her second dress was a nude ombre tulle ball gown with a pick-up skirt by Vera Wang from David’s Bridal. The money dance was an absolute blast!! What better place to party the night away, but at the fabulous The Vinoy Renaissance!
