Vanessa + Conor met in Australia on New Year's despite living just a few blocks from each other in San Francisco a few years ago. As the narrative goes, Vanessa went on a ladies getaway; Conor on a boys trip, and when mutual friends decided to meet up, the couple finally came together.

 

Vanessa is originally from Boca Raton, but after graduating from Harvard Business School, work and a desire for warmer weather took her to the west coast. She left her heart in San Francisco, and Conor, who's a 4th generation San Fransiscan and a looming 6'6" who played basketball for UC Berkeley was there to capture it (cue cheesy music, please). 

Vanessa's family belongs to the Ocean Reef Club, located in Key Largo, FL. Having devoted much her years as a child there, it made an ideal choice for a wedding location. Even though it is just a short hour drive from Miami, a weekend wedding at Ocean Reef is like a vacation in itself; it is genuinely amongst my favorite locations to photograph a wedding ceremony.

The lovebirds wanted a tropical, beach wedding and chose lots of color for their florals by Xquisite Events. My favorite was the ceremony arch which was a stunner! The couple was wedded on the Amberjack Lawn, and afterwards, attendees danced the night away at Palm Court, a waterfront white sandy beach.

While Ocean Reef has numerous locations, like the Town Hall and Carysfort for indoor ballroom wedding ceremonies, I can never pass up a barefoot wedding event along with a nice ocean breeze.

The wedding went off without any hitch, thanks to planning by Andi Soirees
