Today’s gorgeous real wedding brought to us by Marilyn of Rising Lotus Photography is a little slice of paradise! Here’s Marilyn to tell us more:

I feel so fortunate to do what I love- and when that coincides with being with people I’ve known and loved for much of my life… well, you could say that I feel that magic is happening. I am so in awe of Stephanie + Neil for the life they’re building together and the love they share. Their wedding day left me on cloud 9.

See more after the cut!


The pair customized their day from tip to toe. Stephanie’s dress and ring, as well as Neil’s suit, were custom created for them. I was swooning over Stephanie’s silk Dupioni gown (it was truly fit for a goddess, which she 100% is) and Neil’s Linen suit was so dapper! They opted for casual, chic, coastal wedding decor which coordinated with the day’s vibe extremely well!

They pair hosted their ceremony at the gorgeous Hemmingway House in Key West, following with a reception at Bagatelle. After the cake cutting, everyone was treated to the most heavenly Sunset Sail. Just thinking about it again gives me goosebumps. It was coastal perfection!

The day was so emotional for everyone- me included! I’ve known Stephanie for years and I found myself feeling overwhelmed with gratitude, happiness, and joy for their marriage. The day was so very special.  Stephanie and Neil truly embraced every single person in attendance, giving special time and attention to each guest, their most important being their daughter. There wasn’t a dry eye in the room. These two are SO connected and in-tune with one another.  I KNOW they’re going to bask in the “newlywed phase” for many years to come.

Congratulations Stephanie & Neil and thank you, Marilyn, for sharing! For more information about Rising Lotus Photography, please visit their website.
