Alexandra and Justin’s wedding at Isla Bella Beach Resort was a special one for me! Alexandra’s family including her maid of honor, her sister Meghan, has worked with me for many of their milestones. Over time I have grown to know and love them, and they always welcome me into their events & celebrations with open arms!
Isla Bella Beach Resort, where Alexandra and Justin’s wedding took place is a modern, luxurious resort in the Florida Keys. It is stretched across 24 acres of oceanfront with white sand at your feet. The resort’s decor is designed in crisp shades of blue and white with modern furniture and contemporary art in every corner. Which made it the perfect venue for Alexandra and Justin’s tropical, chic, and romantic wedding day!
The small details of Alexandra and Justin’s wedding really brought their vibrant, chic theme to life. The bridesmaids wore champagne dresses, and together with the bride, they all carried bouquets made of stunning white orchids accented with oversized tropical greenery. The groom and his groomsmen all wore blue linen suits. But, to pull off the laid-back vibe of the Florida keys, they didn’t wear ties. Instead, they accessorized with black sunglasses!
One of the things I love most about weddings in the Florida Keys is that laid-back beachy feeling paired with the luxurious views of the most breathtaking blue waters. The benefit of selecting a laid-back resort like Isla Bella for your wedding day is that you can bring your fur baby along with you! Alexandra and Justin brought their dog, Barkley, to their union! He served as their “best dog” during their ceremony, and he made another appearance when it was time for the reception. A custom seating chart bearing a watercolor version of Barkley with the words “Barkley says sit!” greeted guests as they made their way into Alexandra and Justin’s reception.
Their reception was stunningly gorgeous with acrylic seating, rattan chargers, gold flatware, and white orchids at every table. Guest tables were set on the beachy white sands of Isla Bella Beach Resort between the towering palm trees. Under rows of cafe lights, Alexandra and Justin celebrated becoming husband and wife with their family and friends in attendance. Scroll through the blog to see every detail of their day!
