Cheeca Lodge Wedding



Congratulations to the newly married couple, Dan and Chelsea! As many of you know, I am a West Coast wedding photographer and videographer, but sometimes a little East Coast tropical adventure is all you need…

The Couple

Dan and Chelsea had the perfect tropical background in beautiful Islamorada, Florida surrounded by ocean breeze and palm trees. This fun loving couple had the perfect blend of elegance and beach from their tan suits to their toes in the sand, and seashell seating “cards” to create an unforgettable wedding experience.

The Venue-Cheeca Lodge

The Cheeca Lodge located in Islamorada, FL is the perfect picture of tropical wedding bliss right in the heart of the Florida Keys. Dan and Chelsea’s oceanfront wedding scene blew me away. From the bananas hanging from the palm trees to the perfect angle and crossing of the trees entering the wedding ceremony, everything was gorgeous. It was truly a piece of paradise that many people only see in their dreams.

An Unbelievable Night

As the sun set in the Florida Keys, Dan and Chelsea’s celebration came to life under the glow of tiki torches and tree lights. With a quick wardrobe change, the bride traded her long ball gown for a gorgeous all lace show-stopping romper. Champagne was popping as guests enjoyed a fun night of dancing with DJ James Kennedy. James Kennedy is widely known as a reality star from “Vanderpump Rules” but is now focusing on his tour and DJing gigs. The evening was nothing short of extraordinary!
