A Sophisticated Garden Beach Wedding on Captiva Island: Vol 3

A Kakes by Karen original design.  I love the three dimensional orchids.  As you can see from all the photos, we were trying to keep with an almost color-less concept throughout the wedding.  Not quite white, ivory or champagne. Emily referred to it as "half color" which I still love.
Music plays a big part in Emily and Calebs life.  Which is why you'll see the music clef every now and again in the paper details.  For their dinner party style reception, we brought in a baby grand piano and the amazing Bob Mosci from the Carlisle in New York.
Four words: Exquisite, elegant, sophisticated, stunning. Strands of crystals amongst the Phalenopsis orchids surrounded the dance floor.
Tiny little details like this drink stirrer just add that touch of special, don't you think?
One of 3 desserts that night; chocolate creme brulee.
Emily surprised Caleb with a cigar roller.  I confess, I love surprises - alot.
A sparkler grand exit to their getaway boat.  Truly, a great end to a stylish and intimate destination wedding on Captiva.
Be sure to read all the posts related to this garden beach wedding. There will be one more volume, and its all about the kids. Any kid would have begged to come to this wedding!
