Chris and Kristina are both avid readers, so a Key West wedding at The Earnest Hemingway Home was perfect for their romantic and intimate day! They infused their love for literature into their wedding day even more by giving a book by one of their favorite authors to each of their wedding guests as favors. Now THAT is an amazingly personal touch! A color palette of blush and white and an impeccably romantic, garden inspired design created an absolutely gorgeous day, and Care Studios captured it all perfectly!
What (or who) helped you most in your planning process and/or on your wedding day?
Our wedding planner, Peggy Russell, from Destination Wedding Studio helped us plan and prepare our wedding the most. We put our trust in her and let her work her magic.
What was the most important thing to you when deciding who to work with for your wedding?
The most important thing when deciding who to work with was that they came highly recommended and were easy to correspond with since we were planning across such distance.
What was your inspiration for your wedding details and/or design?
We provided a very brief glimpse of our inspiration to our wedding planner at Destination Wedding Studio focusing on shades of blush and a garden theme. From that she created the our magical day and it was better than we could have imagined.
What was your favorite thing about your wedding?
Our favorite thing about our wedding was how intimate and special it was for our families. We were all able to sit at one table and celebrate together. The celebration caused us no stress – it was pure joy! Also, the center piece on the table was beautiful!
What is your best piece of advice for other brides?
My best piece of advice for other brides is to trust someone to worry about the details and spend the time enjoying the engagement and all the celebrations. I was so thankful to have Peggy and all the vendors she helped us select to take care of the details, so that I could enjoy the time – because it passes so quickly!
