destination wedding at coconut palm inn


Ah! This is the very FIRST wedding of the 2016 season to hit the blog! And boy, what a wedding it was! There aren't enough words to describe how I felt about this wedding… To begin, I'll just say that Jeff and Lauren's wedding at the Coconut Palm Inn was elegant, lovely, joyful, and heartfelt. Both Lauren and Jeff's families are some of the most tight knit, loving families. It’s no wonder why Lauren and Jeff are so amazing. They were so welcoming to us, like we were part of their family.

Jeremy and I had driven down to Tavernier, FL on Friday and stayed at the Coconut Palm Inn, right where all of the action was going down! It honestly felt like we were taking a vacation ourselves! We were even given a tropical rum punch as soon as we arrived! And I loved the fact that we got to meet most of the family beforehand and got to know them a little bit.

Jeff and Lauren had contacted me about a year and a half before their wedding date. We hit it off right away and I felt so comfortable with them. I knew that they were going to be such a joy to work with.

Their elegant, outdoor wedding in the Florida Keys was cloud nine! I just loved their organic, nature inspired details. From the baby's breath flower crowns, to the eucalyptus family style reception table, everything was BE-AU-T-FUL! The wedding and reception took place outside by the water and palm trees! 

It's so hard to choose my favorite thing from their wedding, but if I had to choose, I would definitely say that it would be their open air family style reception seating. Family is so important to them, and I loved the fact that everyone sat TOGETHER at a long (longggggg) table! 

Jeff and Lauren, I wish you ALL of the best that life has to offer. Cherish, inspire, and encourage each other everyday. THANK you from the bottom of my heart for welcoming us in so graciously and treating us so well. XOXO!
