A Very elegant Ocean Reef Club wedding.
People might say it’s because of the place why this wedding was elegant (Ocean Reef Club is an exclusive resort) but nope, it’s all because of the details! Our couple, Liz and Eamon, did well when it came to their style choices. The blue, white, and silver combination was a perfect elegant palette for a beach side wedding. And the amount of navy blues really highlighted the whites – just like their bridesmaids wearing a floor length blue dress with matching white bouquets. It was truly an amazing day for this couple. Congratulations Liz & Eamon
The Ocean Reef Club is made up of a hotel and private homes. Once you arrive past the front gate the roads around the resort are a visual scenic feast for your eyes. Remember to always keep your eyes on the road when driving around at the resort. The grounds are so beautiful it’s easy to get distracted. The above picture was taken at a gazebo behind the home the bride and groom owned.
Eamon and I met at just a neighborhood bar in Philly. Mutual friends had organized a happy hour after work. We are both ENT residents at the University of Penn My family has been members at Ocean Reef since I was young. I always knew I wanted to have my wedding there. It is just such a beautiful place filled with great memories for me. There wasn’t really a theme. We tried to overall make it really elegant and beautiful but not stuffy, we wanted it to be a really fun party
Our Interfaith Chapel is always happy to welcome you. Or you may wish to be married at home. Or you may want a true island wedding overlooking the beach and the bay, amid the fragrance of trees and flowers. Ocean Reef Club abounds with lovely locations where you, your family and your guests can share the enchantment of the event in surroundings of unsurpassed beauty.
The bride and groom decided to tie the knot at The Chapel at Ocean Reef. Most of the wedding ceremonies I have photographed at the Ocean Reef Club have held their ceremonies at The point. If you are not familiar with the area around the resort the point is an peninsula where the waterway and resort ocean cove are located. The Point is really a beautiful place for a wedding ceremony. However, it is windy and sometimes the lighting is harsh. Shooting a ceremony at the Chapel was a nice change. In addition the ceremony gave me plenty of photo ops that a photographer would not normally get when photographing a ceremony at The Point. If you would like to see what The Point is all about check out this wedding video. Taylor and Robert has a beautiful wedding with a ceremony on The Point. Taylor and Robert’s wedding video
Having a wedding at the Ocean Reef Club is very special. Situated in Key Largo, this is an extremely high-end exclusive resort where one must either be a member to have a wedding there OR be sponsored by a member. The place is gorgeous and boasts multimillion dollar homes and yachts everywhere you look. Liz and Eamon’s wedding reception was held outdoors with a warm island breeze blowing, right on the water.
One of the main attractions of the Ocean Reef Club is the giant swimming pool. The pool has an infinity edge pool which means the one side of the pool is even with the water from the waterway. Check out the last picture of this article. It’s really cool when you are actually swimming in the pool because it’s hard to tell where the pool ends and the ocean begins.
The flowers and decor for this elegant wedding were provided by Parrish of London. which is one of the best luxury floral and design companies in South Florida.
An island wedding at Ocean Reef Club can be truly magical. The lush tropical setting, the warm Florida air and the privacy we all cherish create an atmosphere that’s perfect for weddings indoors or out. There is a suitable place at The Reef for weddings and receptions of any size.

Whenever I shoot a wedding reception I aim to capture the most exciting action photos possible. This means that I’m immersing myself into the heart of the action. The trick is not to interfere or even be noticed while taking pictures. There is an art to being in the center of the action, yet not actually part of the action. By being in the right place at the right time, I can anticipate what is going to happen at any given moment. In addition I use the latest camera gear that is designed to shoot sports and new photography.
There is no question that the Ocean Reef Club is one of the best places for weddings in the Keys. I’m always excited whenever I have a wedding here. Below are some links to other weddings I have shot at this amazing and beautiful venue.
