Fresh Fuchsia Wedding: Jennifer & Justin at Hawks Cay

on by in Weddings & Such

Today we've got the perfect springtime wedding for y'all! I'm talking beautiful pink peonies, bright blue skies, and a resort with views that are jaw dropping. The incredible team behind Bob Care Photography snapped up each moment to tell the sweet story of Jennifer and Justin's special day.

Jennifer and Justin chose a fresh color palette of fuchsia, light pink, and gold to go with their venue at Hawks Cay in the Florida Keys. Our bride's bouquet of orchids, roses, ranunculus, and peonies was wrapped with her grandmother's pearls, and her bridesmaids' fuchsia dresses paired perfectly with the varied shades of pink in their flowers. I'm completely crushing over these cheery colors!

Jennifer and Justin spent two-and-a-half years dating long distance; she in San Francisco and he in South Florida. Finally, she began graduate school in the Sunshine State and not long after they were engaged. According to Jennifer, "We are both really, really silly. We both have a great sense of humor and love making each other laugh. We are also very into sports and spend a lot of our 'dates' out at sporting events or enjoying watching our favorite football teams from the comfort of our couch. Most importantly, we are very causal people and don't let a lot of things bother us. We love to spend time with our friends and family, and of course our collie-mix, Stella."

One of the most meaningful details was incorporating the important people in our lives and our heritage in the ceremony by performing an Irish hand-fasting; our parents, siblings, maid of honor, and Justin's grandmother participated by tying our hands together with colored ribbons. Each ribbon had a different meaning. Our dog, Stella, was also incorporated in the ceremony as our officiant read a poem about dogs and marriage. We didn't know he was going to do this, but he really understood how special our dog is to us and found an appropriate way to incorporate her even if she couldn't be at the ceremony. I also found it very endearing when, during his vows, Justin said, 'I promise to be the best husband you'll ever have.'

Since we have both traveled a lot to spend time with each other, we decided we wanted to have a destination wedding where our guests could relax and enjoy themselves. We realized the Florida Keys would be a perfect destination, since it is still a vacation for everyone, but it's close enough that we could be involved in the wedding planning process. It was a no-brainer to choose Hawks Cay since we had spent one of our very first vacations there 4 years prior to our wedding and had really enjoyed ourselves. It has become a really special place for us.
