Swankey Wedding: Rachel & Mike

Get ready for a lot of pix of this picture perfect couple. Rachel hails from Tampa and was a music teacher in New Orleans, and Mike is a New York City chef. They tied the knot on the beach at the beautiful Casa Marina Resort. She had such a beautiful vision for her wedding and it felt both vintage and modern–and totally her own!


How pretty are her bridesmaids in white and cream gowns with their headpieces–and such a sweet flower girl!? We also love Rachel’s taste in shoes. Valentino, baby! Mama Flowers was responsible for the beautiful pink and cream bouquets and arrangements.


It was a true family affair, and every detail of the wedding had a special meaning behind it. One of Rachel’s friends did the hair and makeup for the bridal party, and her aunt officiated the ceremony. For a little New Orleans flair, she enlisted New Orlean’s own Hot 8 Brass Band for the ceremony and cocktail reception, and she opted for pies from Mike’s Pies in her native Tampa instead of the traditional wedding cake.


It was a joyous occasion, and Eventfully Yours took care of all the rentals. For ceremony entertainment, they rocked with Rockwithu, a DJ with two live musicians, that kept the party grooving.



CineaVerde shot the wedding video and Beulah Photographer captured these angelic images. For more images of this gorgeous wedding, click here.  Congratulations to Rachel and Mike. We hope to see you in Key West celebrating many anniversaries to come!
