A Casa Marina Wedding With A Sentimental Backstory

I can’t believe I originally met Margaux nearly 10 years ago when her mom hired me to photograph her senior portraits! After college, Margaux made the move to Jacksonville, where she met Corey through her cousin. The beach has been a special place for them since the beginning of their relationship. They often spent date nights walking in the surf and looking for sharks teeth. When Corey proposed to Margaux – he proposed on the beach. And of course, we went to Jetty Park for their engagement session! So when they selected a wedding venue – it had to have 2 things: A beach, and the color blue (Corey’s favorite)! But choosing a venue wouldn’t be difficult at all – Margaux had known she wanted to get married at Casa Marina in Key West nearly her entire life. Her family’s roots run deep at this historic hotel and it would be the perfect place for Corey and Margaux to lay the foundation for their own marriage.

During WWII, the luxury Key West resort, Casa Marina, was home to the US Navy and their families. Margaux’s grandfather lived there as a naval officer – and it was that very spot that her grandfather and grandmother lived as newlyweds. So when it came time for Margaux and Corey to pick a venue for their own wedding, there was no doubt where they wanted to say their vows. Right there on the very same beach that she had vacationed as a child, where her grandparents fell in love in the ’40’s, Corey and Margaux pledged their vows. Although the weather was overcast, guests at this black-tie affair dined and danced and celebrated the newlyweds! Margaux chose shades of blue, hints of eucalyptus and gold accents for their palette and wore a classic Anne Barge gown with a velvet-lace veil.
