Instead of holding a destination wedding in the tropics, Kathleen and Jacob brought the feel of the Caribbean to them by decorating their reception tent with palm trees and incorporating the sounds of a steel-drum band into their ceremony.

The ceremony tent's décor featured a subdued color scheme of green and white, to make the reception's bright display all the more dramatic for entering guests. The event's flowers were designed by Carol B. Westerlund of Larkspur Custom Floral Design.
