Lauren + Mike: Epic Key West Wedding at Casa Marina

Lauren Heller and Mike Durand met in May of 2015 on a dating site. They were not serious in the beginning however, the summer love developed quickly. The couple realized they were head over heels for each other and decided to take the next step and move in together.

They were engaged three years after they first met on the first day at their new apartment. Mike surprised Lauren with new shoes and a new outfit. (How sweet!?)  He made dinner plans at the exquisite Eleven Madison Park restaurant that overlooks Madison Square Garden on 24th and Madison. Mike proposed with champagne before they left for the restaurant. "The staff was aware and made the night over-the-top for us!"

Lauren and Mike's Key West wedding day was nothing short of amazing. The couple opted for a First Look so that every minute of the reception could be spent with their guests. Such a great option because even the "formal" photos with this crew were super fun!

Lauren wore a gorgeous wedding gown designed by Made with Love and Mike had a custom tailored suit by Bonobos.They exchanged vows oceanside in front of family and friends at the gorgeous Casa Marina with their brother in law, Justin Rowley, performing the marriage ceremony. The floral decor was magnificently created by the team at Milan Event and the ballroom was perfectly orchestrated. There were so many surprises that filled the ballroom with fun and laughter throughout the evening. Even their cat Sox made an appearance! 

Congratulations to you and to your families! It was truly a magical day!
