Kelly & Oliver
Casa Marina Key West, Key West, FL
This sophisticated black-tie destination wedding was the perfect blend of romance on the beach in an ultra-chic setting.
A stark contrast to the festive Havana Nights Welcome Party the night before, Kelly and Oliver curated a sophisticated black-tie destination wedding during a weekend rounded out with Patroney’s Pool Party in honor of the bride, Patroney Moroney, a nickname bestowed due to her maiden name and love of tequila, and a golf tournament dubbed the Oli Open in honor of the groom. The couple planned an ultra-romantic seaside wedding with oceanfront I dos in the sand, a candle-lit dinner and ultra-chic dance lounge complete with a confetti drop at Casa Marina Key West.
Everything — from the flowers to the linens, lounge furniture and signage — reflected a neutral palette of white, cream, blush and gray, mixed with candles, gold metallics and wooden accents, so while the wedding was uber-modern, there was a warm undercurrent of romanticism as well. Garden roses were the main floral statement among an elegant collection of blooms. The bride wore a classic mermaid-style gown by Hayley Paige and her 10 bridesmaids wore varied ivory BHLDN dresses.
Guests were greeted with butler-passed champagne and sunshine. Place cards were set atop mini Patrón bottles for each guest. Dinner was a choice of filet, or mahi and saffron risotto, concluding with a coconut-flavored wedding cake with key lime vanilla frosting. Guests were then ushered into the dance lounge, which was transformed with pieces of décor from the day (including a monogrammed boxwood wall), as well as sleek furniture and a fusion band. Following a wardrobe change by the bride, guests were given midnight mini Cuban sandwiches and bottles of water as they boarded the trolley to head to the afterparty.
From the couple:
“Splurge on anything that will elevate the fun, the things your guests will remember: food, alcohol and music. The confetti drop was a total surprise for everyone and elevated an already extremely fun night even higher!”
