A Dreamy Rustic Garden Wedding
When the first photograph of Kelly and Ryan’s dreamy rustic garden wedding came into our inbox we were so happily taken back to an unforgettable night. A night where there was so much love in the air it was palpable. Their rustic garden affair took place at one of our favorite destination wedding locations in Key West, Florida, The Casa Marina – A Waldorf Astoria Resort, which in it’s own right is a magical place, but when filled with gorgeous pieces from our sister company, Inspired Rentals, well, let’s just say it felt straight out of a fairytale. Kelly and Ryan’s wedding was what we as little girls dreamed about. Take a look for yourself and never forget ‘dreams do come true.’
From the bride: Ryan and I met amongst mutual friends in Fort Lauderdale. I grew up in Ft Lauderdale and Ryan is from Richmond, Virginia. As our social circles melded, we deepened our friendship through week night rec leagues playing kickball, dodgeball, our love of traveling and other fun events. About two years of being great friends, Ryan finally asked me out on a date. After about 4 years, he proposed at Morada Bay in Islamorada. We wanted to keep with the theme and get married in the Keys. We fell in love with the Casa Marina for it’s amazing exterior views, and warm ball room. The inspiration for the theme of our wedding came from a rustic english garden feel while taking advantage of the tropical location and amazing surroundings. The mixture of rustic & tropics/beach worked so well with the decor and colors complimenting the venue perfectly. We absolutely loved the cakes, especially the groom’s cake, fashioned after our french bulldog Hammie. It added a unique bit of who we are into the formal affair. The live band kept our guests moving all night long with a mixture of classic Sinatra, 80’s songs everyone could sing along to, and covers of the best dance music. With high and low centerpieces and candles, and drift wood pieces the decor matched perfectly matched our vision of how this day would look. Peggy, our wedding coordinator and stylist was the best. Our day would not have been the same without her.
