The Club at the Strand | Wedding

From the moment we met Karli and Will at their incredible engagement session in Naples, we were beyond excited to photograph their wedding!  The Club at the Strand was an absolute dream venue to host their big day, and Deanna and her team ensured every detail was nothing short of perfection.  Riley of Red Letter Event Design did an amazing job of coordinating the day, and every element was stunning from start to finish!

The day began in the bridal suite as we documented the details, including Karli’s gorgeous dress, invitations, rings, and shoes.  The ladies had spent the morning with Invite Bride on hair and makeup, and Karli shared letters with her parents before greeting her father in her gown.  We captured a few portraits and then headed out for her first look with Will.  These two are the sweetest couple ever, and we explored the grounds together before their wedding party and families joined us for photos.  

The ceremony began with music by Paradise Strings, and Karli and Will exchanged vows surrounded by family and friends.  Guests mingled throughout cocktail hour on the veranda before gathering in the Botanical Garden for the outdoor reception.  The space looked absolutely breathtaking complete with a custom seating chart made by Karli and gorgeous florals by I Dew Events.  Karli and Will made their grand entrance to cheers, and everyone cleared the dance floor for their incredible first dance.  Guests enjoyed dinner and speeches followed by a beautiful array of desserts from Mikkelsen’s Pastry Shop.  We stepped away for a few golden hour portraits before Curate Entertainment and The Miami Beats hosted an epic dance party to end the night.  Karli and Will, your wedding was a complete dream come true, and we hope that your honeymoon in Africa is every bit as unforgettable!
