When asked to describe the kind of wedding Key West brides are usually known for, the photographer uttered the words “low key yet high quality” and I couldn’t have depicted this wedding feature any better. Despite the laid back style of this event, it is undeniable that everything flowed smoothly and elegantly – total perfection indeed. The simpleness of the details were beautifully ministered that our couple’s special day turned out to be one for the books. Specially our beautiful bride Erin, who wore a sleek chignon and a lovely tiered dress – she was really a bride to behold. Congratulations Erin & James!
The Hyatt Key West is a tropical oasis located just perfectly for some of the most beautiful sunsets you will ever see. It is the perfect spot for a destination wedding for a boho bride and groom that love the ocean breeze. Erin and James chose the Hyatt Key West for their April nuptials – and I was chosen to capture it! Key West brides are traditionally laid back who want a low key yet high quality wedding experience for their guests. Erin and James spent the long weekend hanging around with friends and family that they don’t see often since they currently live in Abu Dhabi. Some of their awesome activities included a water-side welcome cocktail party, a backyard rehearsal dinner and a sunset wedding ceremony that their guests will never forget! Erin’s flowy dress was the perfect option for their waterside ceremony. I was excited the couple chose to do a first look so we could take advantage of the tropical landscape. The couple said I DO in front of 60 friends & family along with a few on-lookers from passing boats. The dress, the flowers, the weather….everything from their day went perfectly as planned (Thanks in part to Kelly with Just Save the Date)!! But the moment that made this one of my favorite weddings of all time was the best man’s toast; Not only were the groom’s past adventures shared – there were pictures to go along with it! I have never laughed so hard at a toast in my entire life! A couple that can laugh that hard together are meant for each other.
