We love that Key West is such a popular destination wedding spot. It’s a thrill to share the beauty of this unique island with couples from all over the country and even around the world. That being said, it’s extra special when we get to work with a local couple. That was the case with Grace and Derek. Coincidentally, Grace’s good friend Laura was also recently wed in Key West and we got to plan her wedding too!
Grace is originally from Key West and she has an amazing pottery studio Rubies & Clay on Whitehead Street. Her hubby Derek is from New Orleans, but he’s been a longtime local in Key West. Their wedding was full of so many personal touches and sentimental moments around the island. Grace was a stunning bride and Headlines Hair helped to get her hair and makeup to perfection.
The ceremony was held at the Key West United Methodist Church. Afterwards, the wedding guests were shuttled to the Hemingway House for the reception in Old Town Trolleys while Grace and Derek rolled in style in a Rolls Royce from Executive Ground Logistics.
The Hemingway House was an idyllic wedding location with overhead string lighting and party rentals courtesy of Eventfully Yours. Milan Events created a gorgeous floral display and Great Events took care of the catering. Delicious! Grace had such a beautiful vision for her wedding with bright oranges, pinks, and lime greens in her color scheme. She even handmade all the party favors!
It was a beautiful night for a wedding and they brought in Brian Roberts & Prime Movers band from New Orleans to keep the crowd on their feet. Studio Julie took shot these gorgeous photos. Congratulations Grace and Derek. We look forward to seeing you around the island in your newlywed bliss!
