Nicole and Sylvain are a picture perfect couple who exude absolute happiness. One look at their photos and you’ll see it right away. It’s lovely to host such incredible people in one of the most picturesque parts of the world, the Florida Keys.

For one day, Little Palm Island was theirs. It was a bright, sunshiny day as the pieces of their wedding day were literally coming together. Two dozen Mahogany chiavari chairs and six tables arrived comprising the dinner reception’s setting. Milan Events arranged reception decor with 16 individual floral centerpieces of all purple set in low silver bowls, and then surrounded them with chrome lanterns and mercury glass votives to provide warm, ethereal lighting in the evening.

Milan Events also delivered such gorgeous floral arrangements of pure white and deep purple, combining hydrangeas, calla lilies, lysianthus, carnations and orchids for the bridal party. Nicole and her maids were attended by the ever talented stylists from Studio Marie Pierre. As the afternoon drew on, Solaris Photography was on the scene to begin capturing each precious moment, as well as a brilliant First Look set seen below.

Popular local musician Rusty Lemmon played in acoustic style as Nicole and Sylvain walked down the aisle. Surrounded by their two dozen guests in the smiling sunshine before the Atlantic Ocean, they spoke their vows and shared in a beautiful sand ceremony on the beach. Such a powerful scene.


The ceremony gave way to a relaxing cocktail hour which included hors d’oeuvres of crepe purses with caviar and chive cream, as well as crab canapes. After a full dinner with delicious vintage wines and Rusty Lemmon’s acoustic talents, the newly married couple cut their designer wedding cake from Cakes by Karol, a 2-tier dream of vanilla buttercream cake with raspberry filling topped by chocolate cake with vanilla buttercream.

These days always go too quickly, but for one day the world stopped for Nicole and Sylvain. We hope they can stop in days to come and enjoy the memory of the day they had an island just for themselves.
