It was love at first sight! I visited him in Berlin 2 months later and we spent the next 2+ years visiting each other in Cleveland, Berlin, Key West, Mexico... wherever we could meet! We absolutely loved Key West when we visited last year so we decided to visit again once we were both living in the same place!

They started their morning at the historical Hemingway House, where one of the famous cats jumped right into Lauren's lap.

Keeping it Cool Guests were treated to ice cold beverages straight from the old-fashioned bath tub filled with ice. Vintage Collections The bride's mother's collectibles were displayed throughout the ceremony and reception in the form of vintage mirrors, milk glass and vintage silver. In addition, the couple used mason jars, shabby chic doors and frames to complete the look. Wheat Wheat was used as a central theme throughout the day - in centerpieces and in the couple's portraits because it symbolizes their agricultural backgrounds and matches the filigree on Annie's ring.

The color inspiration came from the navy and coral statement necklace by designer Leslie Danzis. Modern details, such as ghost chairs and sequined table runners, were paired with a nontraditional metallic gown for the bride and a pink peplum dress for the bridesmaid. To tie fashion and a farm setting together, they included updated takes on romantic details like swan cake toppers, a quatrefoil motif in the chair pillows and dinnerware, and a gorgeous navy blue Kate Middleton-inspired engagement ring.
