Today, we're thrilled to share the story of Stephanie and Mark's Key Largo wedding at the beautiful Ocean Reef Club. From their heartwarming journey as childhood friends to their breathtaking celebration at the Ocean Reef Club, this San Francisco couple's special day was an unforgettable experience.
Stephanie and Mark's love story began way back in 7th grade, where their friendship blossomed on the cross-country team. Who would have thought that calling Mark her "gal pal" would eventually lead them to the altar? Fast forward to their senior year of high school, and they discovered their compatibility was off the charts. Being friends for so long and sharing a similar background made the transition into dating a breeze.
When it came to choosing their Key Largo wedding venue, Stephanie and Mark knew they wanted something extraordinary. The Ocean Reef Club had become their home away from home over the years, brimming with cherished memories. It felt only natural to say their vows in a place that held so much meaning.
Throughout the whirlwind wedding planning process, Stephanie and Mark entrusted their vision to their talented Key Largo wedding planner, Wendy. From initial inspiration to pulling it all together, Wendy guided them with expertise and care. Stephanie had always envisioned a dreamy affair with a white monogrammed dancefloor and cascading flowers, and Wendy worked her magic to make it a reality.
One of the standout features was the consistent monogramming, creatively designed by Carole Obernesser from CSO Creatives. The couple's initials with palm motifs were present on everything from the invitations, dancefloor, programs, menus, and even an ice sculpture! It added a touch of personalized elegance throughout the event.
But it wasn't just about the monograms. Stephanie and Mark injected their playful spirit into the celebration with unique touches. Guests couldn't resist the charm of the tequila foreman ice luge, which quickly became a crowd favorite. The cigar bar provided a relaxed atmosphere for those seeking a break from the dancefloor. And let's not forget the unforgettable welcome party, complete with a mesmerizing fire dancer, mouthwatering tacos, and glow-in-the-dark golf into the lagoon. Talk about setting the mood for an unforgettable weekend!
Of course, a wedding wouldn't be complete without sensational entertainment. Stephanie and Mark's 12 piece band, Libido, brought the house down, captivating their guests from the moment they stepped into the ballroom. The continuous music during dinner created an energetic ambiance that had everyone raving.
Now, as they embark on their journey as a married couple, Stephanie and Mark have some wisdom to share. They advise future lovebirds planning their own Key Largo weddings to relax and focus on each other. Your friends and family are simply delighted to be in the Keys, sipping drinks by the pool and enjoying a fantastic vacation. Trust that the magic of the destination will create an unforgettable experience for everyone.
