Baker’s Cay Wedding {Sophia & Mark}

Baker's Cay WeddingBaker’s Cay Wedding Bliss

What a pleasure to be a part of Sophia and Mark’s Baker’s Cay Wedding day! I feel so blessed as I find myself saying again and again, after each wedding, my couples are the sweetest. And Mark and Sophia are certainly no different! They are the SWEETEST!

Mark treasures Sophia–she is the kindest, gentlest soul with a heart of gold. Mark is from the UK. He had some of his immediate family and closest friends here for the wedding. Their adoration and support of the duo was incredibly moving! Sophia is one of 3 girls, 2 of them being twins, and their maids of honor speeches were THE best, incredibly funny and heartfelt.  The amazing couple and their loved ones enjoyed the gorgeous day with grace and love aplenty. It was an absolute honor to witness! To hear more about their sweetest day, dive in below as Sophia shares all the details!

Let’s hear it: tell us your Love Story!

“On our wedding day, we were lucky enough to be together for 9 years! We met while we were in college attending Missouri State in Springfield, MO. We met one night out on the town in Springfield at a local bar called Boogie! Mark is from London, England and I am from St. Louis, MO. We always knew we wanted a destination wedding somewhere beautiful. We got engaged at Baker’s Cay in Key Largo, Florida in March 2021 and we fell in love with the resort and decided to have our wedding there one year later! :)”

What overall experience were you hoping for for your loved ones?

“We wanted our guests to have the absolute best time–to feel a blend of relaxation, enjoyment with great company and amazing views–to overall have a great vacation in the Keys! Lastly, we wanted them to feel connected to one another…as destination weddings have the ability to do! You get to connect with your wedding guests days prior or after your big day to soak in all of the quality time. Everyone truly gets to know one another.”

What was your favorite moment of your Baker’s Cay wedding day?

“For me…walking down the aisle. It was very surreal walking down and seeing all of my family and friends stand up looking at me…seeing my future husband at the end of the aisle. Mark said watching me walk down was his favorite as well.. trying to hold back the tears.. as he was unsuccessful at ;)”

Who designed you and your bridal party’s attire?

“My wedding gown was purchased from a local store near St. Louis, Missouri called Clarice’s Bridal. My bridesmaids dresses were purchased from David’s Bridal. (Very  convenient when you have bridesmaids living all over the US, being a nation wide company it was very helpful for them to get sized and order their dresses)
Groomsman suits were purchased from Next. It is primarily located in the UK. Very affordable and looked amazing!”
