THERE IS SOMETHING MAGICAL ABOUT A CHEECA WEDDING, IT’S NOT JUST THE MOST IMPORTANT DAY IN YOUR LOVE STORY, IT’S A TROPICAL VACATION FOR EVERYONE THAT YOU LOVE THE MOST, SHARING IN YOUR HAPPINESS AND CREATING YOUR MEMORIES. CHEECA LODGE IN ISLAMORADA, WAS THE PERFECT FLORIDA DESTINATION WEDDING VENUE FOR TAYLOR AND JACOB’S ISLAMORADA WEDDING. I WISH THERE WERE MORE WORDS THAT MEAN STUNNING IN THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE, BECAUSE TAYLOR WAS CERTAINLY ALL OF THEM, BUT SHE WAS THE MOST BEAUTIFUL WHEN SHE WAS LOOKING INTO JACOB’S EYES. THEY ARE A COUPLE THAT CLEARLY CONNECT ON MANY LEVELS AND HAVE A LONG BRIGHT FUTURE TOGETHER AND I WAS DELIGHTED TO DOCUMENT THEIR GORGEOUS ISLAMORADA WEDDING.

Tell Us About Your Proposal

After Jacob received my father’s blessing, the ring was burning a hole in his pocket. His mother and sister bought a t-shirt that said “Wife” and suggested he propose with it. At first thought, he actually made fun of the idea. But once he had talked to my dad, he ran to his moms house, grabbed the t-shirt and taped it in a cardboard box. He knew I was waiting for a package. So when he saw the mail man, he offered to grab my package and he came back with two. Luckily, I opened his box first. And just as I read the shirt I turned around to find him down on one knee. It was a day we will never forget.

 

Tell us about your wedding day… what was the inspiration behind the day?

For our wedding day, we wanted more than anything a beautiful scenery. Jacob’s older sister, Krysta, got married in Key West and it is one of his most favorite memories. We decided a beach destination wedding fit our personalities perfectly and we already knew how beautiful it could be. We wanted to keep things soft, with a mostly neutral color palette. We would describe the style for the day as coastal and rustic.

 

What was your  favorite design detail about your wedding?

My favorite design detail of our wedding were the lanterns. They completely tied our style and the beach wedding together.
