This fun sweet couple planned a gorgeous wedding that fit their fun personalities to a tee. Deciding on the Pen Ryn Mansion with a sprawling lawn overlooking the water, their traditional affair was beautifully enhanced by romantic architecture, an abundance of natural light and inviting fireplaces. The rich magenta theme was highlighted throughout the celebration in the bold jewel tones, vibrant flowers, bold patterns and shimmering sparkle, whilst a hint of rustic details in the bouquets, centerpieces, escort cards and glowing lanterns, gave the whole day a ‘feel right at home‘ warmth. Thanks to Visual Appeal Studios we have it all here for you to enjoy!
Rain clouds were overhead as Tanisha & Brandon began getting ready for their big day. Luckily, the sky cleared just in time for their touching first look – Brandon’s face was priceless as he first glimpsed his beautiful bride. Soon after guests arrived Tanisha was escorted by her father down the long aisle that extended from the front doors down into the yard. It was a beautiful moment to start to their wedding ceremony.
Tanisha and Brandon shared vows and a few tears before heading off with their guests to celebrate! Pen Ryn Mansion’s ballroom was an exquisite venue for the couple’s reception. The Mansion had so much character and was beautifully decorated with details Brandon & Tanisha planned that certainly added to the feel of their day.
Guests were out of their seats on the dance floor or enjoying having their likeness created by the caricaturist. When the reception ended guests sent the newlyweds on their way with a sparkler send off!
Happy Easter lovelies from Love Wed Bliss!
We hope you Easter is filled with love, good company and plenty of delicious decadence from the Easter Bunny! xo

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.
