Paradise Wedding in July

Lindsey and Geoffrey both worked in the film industry and met at a party for a movie. Lindsey saw Geoffrey and asked her friend who he was. Her friend didn’t know Geoffery, but she still told him that Lindsey might be interested. Minutes later, Geoffrey introduced himself to Lindsey, and the rest was history!

Geoffrey proposed to Lindsey after dinner at one of her favorite restaurants. After dinner, Lindsey suggested they walk along the beach, and as they were walking, Geoffrey surprised her by proposing with her mother’s diamond solitaire.

After eight years of dating, Lindsey and Geoffrey had a paradise wedding at Audubon House & Tropical Gardens. Surrounded by orchids and palm trees, their tropical wedding was everything they hoped it would be. When Lindsey walked down the aisle and they saw each other for the first time, they both felt relieved and grateful.

The reception followed and the guests enjoyed hors d’oeuvres and crisp cocktails along the bricked garden path of the Audubon House. A Key West marathon was taking place that day. As the newly married couple enjoyed their reception, an enthusiastic crowd of runners flew by cheering them on. After the reception, the couple took off through a canopy of green and coral silk ribbons to their rickshaw.

One unforgettable moment was when the bride’s sister, Genna, gave Lindsey her wedding gift. Because the wedding was small, Lindsey’s friends weren’t able to attend. Genna got 25 of Lindsey’s friends to write her letters that said, “Letters to Lindsey.” She spent her morning reading each letter, and even though her friends weren’t physically at the wedding, she felt like everyone was there celebrating with her.
