Gabriela and James met while James was on vacation in Central America and it was love at first sight. This international duo started out doing the long distance thing and traveled extensively together, all the while getting to know each other better and nurturing the love they felt for each other. They chose to have a destination wedding in Key West for it’s tropical appeal and their guests travelled from all over the world to celebrate the day with them.
After an intimate ceremony right on the beach, Gabriela, James and their guests headed inside where dinner was served at one long, family style table. The place settings shone with sparkling gold chargers and ghost chairs gave the room an open, airy feel. Their centerpieces, a mix of roses, tropical wildflowers and hydrangea accented with twigs and eucalyptus leaves were interspersed with pillar, hurricane and votive candles all in gold and brass holders. While a large canopy arrangement took center stage, hanging delicately over the bride and groom’s places at the table.
Gabriela looked gorgeous in her traditional, princess cut ballgown, while her bridesmaids’ dresses popped in pink and James and his groomsmen looked like they stepped off the set of Casino Royal, polished and handsome, in their classic tuxes. Once the sun went down over the water, this joyful couple and their guests hit the dance floor to groove the night away!
