Incredible + Idyllic Islander Resort Wedding
I have so many things to say about Jackie & Jake’s Islander Resort wedding, and yet no words can quite sum it up well enough! From the planning period to their wedding day, Jackie and Jake left me smiling so hard my cheeks hurt–more times than I can count! Alongside the adorable duo, their loved ones were just as wonderful. Following to the tune of pure joy the couple brings, the whole crowd just exuded FUN. I’m not sure I have ever seen a crowd love the dance floor and the camera so much. They were all made for the spotlight, and were not afraid to own it! The energy of the entire day, from getting ready to getting down on the dance floor, was so perfect. Everyone, wedding vendors included, had such an incomparably fun time. Smiles and solid senses of humor were abundant! To find yourself enjoying that same Cheeks Hurt From Smiling So Much feeling, dive in to more photos and details of their wedding day below!
A Determined Flower Girl & Lyrical Best Man
During the ceremony, the littlest flower girl, Olivia, was wanting to march to the beat of her own drum. A gal after my own heart, should’ve known with the matching names! 😉 She was not up for her long walk down the beach to reach the official beginning of the aisle. But the ceremony must go on! I was honored to get to carry her most of the way, clipboard in hand and all, before situating her tiny little flower crown, and sending her off with the others for her moment to shine. Pure sweetness!
During the reception speeches, one of the Best Men closed by sharing a custom rap song he had written for the couple. He nailed it–a truly unforgettable lyrical genius! From the duos adoration for one another, to the groovy dances moves from all and more, it’s safe to say the video footage from this wedding day will be a true treat to watch!
His view during the ceremony + her view during the ceremony…love birds through and through!
Hugs + Happily Ever Afters
I always get so sad when each wedding day comes to a close. It’s an honor to grow close with each and every couple through the engagement season. Watching their dream day come true and being able to feel the joy for them is such a gift. After the big day ends, I find myself missing the couples so much. Thankfully, Jackie & Jake come to Islamorada often, so we will get to catch up again soon! Counting down the days for a reunion already!
Jackie and Jake, you two are simply wonderful. Thank you both so much for choosing me to enjoy this adventure with you all. Wishing you every happiness–now and forever!
Thank you so much to fellow Florida wedding vendors!
