January 17, 2015 . The Reach Resort, Key West, FL
Theme: Cinderella's Sand Castle
This couple really worked hard to make sure that their wedding day reflected their personalities. I worked with the bride who had several theme ideas that encompassed who they were at heart. Leslie loves Disney, and Buck is a rocket scientist (literally!). She is a die-hard Miami fan and he's Georgia Tech all the way! It took some imagination to bring it all together, and the result was just gorgeous!
They chose the Reach Resort in Key West as their venue. The Waldorf Astoria property features a large covered dock overlooking an endless ocean. Milan Events provided beautiful floral and a single crystal chandelier to add the perfect elegant touch for our princess bride. Cocktail hour took place on a terrace overlooking the ceremony site which kept their guests connected as they finished up their bridal photos. I loved how the color palette of blues & pinks blended with the sunset sky!
The best decision Buck & Leslie made was booking their band Uproot Hootenanny. It was a great fit for their guests, they really knew what their friends and family would get dancing to! The musicians even learned a few Disney tunes which excited the bride to no end!

From the Bride: "Wow! Thank you Carin! I had Carin as my "day-of" coordinator and could not have been happier. What they say is true- hire a coordinator! It's worth it. I hired Carin from Key Largo for my wedding in Key West. Although she was not familiar with the venue, she adapted well, utilizing the space efficiently. She relieved a lot of stress on the day of that as a bride you do not have time to deal with. I was able to relax in my room, get ready with my bridesmaids, and only worry about myself. Before the wedding, she was more than willing to meet with me on several occasions to go over details and find out what was important to us. I was the first of my friends to get married, and so I had little advice on things. Carin was very knowledgeable on what to expect, what traditionally happens, and even pricing of things like flowers, cakes, etc. I could not have been happier! Thank you!"
