Lots of special custom details flooded Lauren and Kyle’s wedding at Carlouel Yacht Club. The whole preparation was an intimate family succession of efforts and it turned out to be so full of fun and love! Amazing and remarkable pieces of the event will now be featured and our special thanks to Carrie Wildes Photography for their wonderful shots! Love, love, love and enjoy fellas!
The wedding gown. Lauren’s light and flowy gown was custom ordered from Australia and was perfect for the beach.
The DIY projects. The bride’s mom made all the hangers for the dresses and the letter H with seashells from the beach where the bride grew up.
The beach ceremony. There was a place for everyone to leave their shoes and decorations of simple palm leaves were there, and sunglasses for their guests.
A steel drummer played as everyone got seated for the ceremony.
The brother-in-law, aunt and cousin. The one who officiated the ceremony was Lauren’s brother-in-law and her aunt and cousin played soulfully “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” on the ukulele.
The cake. The couple met in Chicago so their cake had a Chicago Bears symbol surrounded by mini key lime pies.
From the Photographer
“If you are planning a destination wedding, ask your venue who they would recommend as their preferred wedding professionals. We work with lots of couples coming to FL for their wedding and we always help with referring anything they need. It’s not easy to plan from afar because you can’t meet face to face but if can find trusted vendors to help your wedding will be a breeze!”
Wedding Budget: $20,000 – $45,000
