A Casual, Playful Wedding at Discovery Cove Orlando in Orlando, Florida
Sascha Voss (41 and a catering sales manager) and Tom Keller (49 and a director of human resources) used light blue, sand tones and oranges to represent their bright personalities as well as their love for the ocean and beach.
“The vision was a stress-free day of relaxation and fun in the sun and water,” Sascha says, which included a reception in the water. The private beach ceremony took place in front of a waterfall with touches of orange and blue to add a pop of color. Then, the couple and guests visited the bird aviary and went snorkeling. “Many rounds in the large lazy river were enjoyed by all,” Sascha says. They also shared stories and laughs at a pool bar.
“For us, the idea of escape and fun was very important,” Sascha (left) says of their staycation wedding.
“Tom loves penguins, so we had to incorporate them somewhere,” says Sascha. “We both felt the cake topper was the perfect place.”
“We wanted our guests to have something they could use that day, so we gave away tote bags with our logo on them. In them, we included fun sunglasses, suntan lotion safe for water animals and snorkel masks for the day’s activities,” the grooms say. “Plus a CD with our special cocktail hour music mix for the ride home.”
The grooms followed their beachy theme and donned light blue jackets, white shirts, khakis and striped ties.
