Of all seasons, Spring is a time to embrace color and sunshine! Something about the color fuchsia pops just right among a tropical landscape and Caribbean blue water. During our planning sessions, we loved that Jessica & Paul weren't afraid to show their personality while keeping the design for their best day ever truly timeless.
In the theme of vibrant and classic, they chose Margeaux Boles to capture their love and all the details. Her vivid perspective was the perfect pairing - and after two years of waiting to shoot this special day, she absolutely delivered! From the groom:
"She was so wonderful to work with. She kept Jessica and I smiling the entire time. She knew just how to capture the perfect picture. We have since received our sneak peak and WOW!!! Jessica and I are beyond speechless with how unbelievably beautiful these pictures are!!! The quality, the color, the lighting, the amazing backgrounds."
Please enjoy this stunning day, every single second:
Baker's Cay Resort will always have a special place in our hearts, and this elegant ceremony design has become one for the books! Hugging the natural arch of the Buttonwood trees, lush greenery and pops of Phalaenopsis compliment the white sugary sand of this Key Largo coast. Bravo Floral Fantasy on this gorgeous arrangement!
Color us in love! We are obsessing over Jessica & Paul's paradise postcard station! Oh, and that view ;)

A tropical, simple and stress-free day was the goal for Allison as she planned her Florida Keys wedding with her best friend and husband-to-be, Tony. “We both joke that if it were possible, he would have been my maid of honor and I would have been his best man. I know it’s cliché but we’re really each other’s best friend.”
With that goal in mind, Key Largo was the perfect wedding destination for Allison and Tony. Not only does Key Largo embody this winning wedding combination, it’s also home to Allison’s parents, and some of the most breathtaking sunsets in the U.S.
Including a magical bayside sunset was important to the bride because it was her way to include her grandmother, who passed away in 2018, in her special day. “We used to watch sunsets together on vacation. I felt like as long as we could watch the sunset, I knew I’d feel my grandma there with me.”
Key Largo is also home to newly renovated Baker’s Cay, a beautiful 15-acre bayfront sanctuary. Adorned with an abundance of classic white peonies, lush evergreen garlands and monstera leaf accents, this nature inspired Florida Keys wedding venue perfectly achieved the tropical theme Allison and Tony were after.
Allison and Tony agreed not to sweat the small stuff. Their advice to newly engaged couples is to keep your eye on the prize – a long and happy marriage. “I keep telling engaged couples, that it’s not worth stressing the details. As long as you’re marrying the love of your life, nothing else matters.”
The simple act of hiring a top-notch team of local professionals for their Florida Keys wedding day covered this detail with ease. “Working with Wendy and Carin made the entire day so seamless and I can’t imagine that day without them and the team at Baker’s Cay.”
Mission accomplished Allison and Tony! Best wishes to you both for a long and happy marriage. It was a pleasure and a privilege working with you on your big day!
