Hyatt Key West wedding | Sara & Jeff

Last weekend was a quick 26 hour trip to Key West for Sara & Jeff’s wedding.  They both love the Keys and fell in love with the Hyatt Key West, which ironically I had already shot there about 2 1/2 years ago so it was nice to head back down to some familiar ground.

Sara didn’t miss a details of her wedding.  She did all the florals herself and with the help of Nika from Soiree Key West, everything fell into place.   It rained, well torrential downpour, about 1/2 hour before we were supposed to head out for formals but just like Florida, the skies brightened up as we were headed out and not a drop of rain the rest of the afternoon.

Huge thanks to all the vendors involved!  It couldn’t of all come together without you guys!
Venue:  Hyatt Centric Key West
Coordinator:  Soiree Key West
DJ:  DJ Gunz – Cutting Edge DJ
Hair/Makeup:  Bella Luxe Kiar & Makeup of the Florida Keys

I’m normally not all for DIY because 99% of the time, time gets away from you and either things don’t get done or they just don’t come out the way you want them too but Sara?  She knocked her flowers out of the park!

Can you spot her hidden Mickey’s?  She’s a HUGE Disney fan

All the girls had matching Columbia shirts with their monograms on the back.  They corresponded to the colors of their bridesmaid dresses

Jeff and all of the groomsmen got cufflinks representing things they love to do.  Fishing is Jeff’s so the reel was a perfect fit.

Jeff had a bottle of Eagle Rare whiskey, 101 proof and that’s where he lost me lol

Sara swore she wasn’t going to cry but as soon as she read Jeff’s card, she lost it

He did good with this one.  Sara’s mom explained that the center stone is one that has now been passed down to her so it has more meaning then just a diamond necklace

Sara wanted to make sure that he and Jeff got a little one on one time before the start of everything so a first look was in order.

Before we set out to do formals, it absolutely poured!  What we didn’t know was that it left us an amazing rainbow right at their first kiss as husband and wife!

The one thing that Sara said to me before the wedding was that the pictures were one of the most important parts of her day.  She made sure to consider a lot of time for formals.  Once their first look was done, we all climbed into 2 golf carts and hit the roads of Key West.  We had over an hour to hit all the spots that Sara & Jeff wanted!

We originally had in the time line that we would head out about 8:20ish to grab the sunset at the end of Hyatt’s dock.  Around 8, I looked out, saw the clouds and sun rays, look at the DJ & coordinator (thank you Niza & Matt!) and asked if we could have an extra 20 minutes and then we’d skip the sunset shots at 8:20.  So glad we did!

Since they both fish, the table markers were types of fish; tarpon, redfish, snook, etc.  Loved that!

So Nick & Katie were trying to figure out their entrance to the reception.  They came up with swapping clothes.  I don’t think I’ve laughed so hard!

Sorry Nick…but this is now forever embedded in the internet lol

St Pete Beach Community Center Wedding | Kristina & Kurtis

Here we are, 8 years in the making, a year worth of planning and it all comes down to one day 🙂

Kristina got ready at the Bon Aire Beach Resort which gave us plenty of room for her and all her girls to get ready.  Meanwhile, Kurtis was at their house getting ready with the guys (and Izzie of course).  Once hair and make up was done, we headed to the St. Pete Beach Community Center to get them married!

As the ceremony was getting ready to start, Mother Nature had a lovely (sense the sarcasm please) little storm brewing offshore and headed inland.  Thank heavens it held off just long enough for the ceremony, drizzled a bit during formals but we went with the flow and managed to get an amazing sunset at the end of the night.

Thanks to all the vendors involved!!
Ceremony/Reception:  St. Pete Beach Community Center
Hair/Makeup:  The Destiny and Light – Hair & Makeup
DJ:  Elite Signature DJs
Bartender:  Spunky Spirits

Poor Izzie was a little confused as to all the commotion so she had to seek attention…

So right about now is when we all saw it.
Back story…Tina and I had already been talking for 2-3 weeks about how she hoped Kurtis didn’t pass out during the ceremony.  Rumor has it that he had already started about 8am talking about the ceremony and making it through.

Kristina-Kurtis-320

And he locked his knees and before he knew it, the woozy feeling was there.

Kristina-Kurtis-324

He finished the ceremony sitting down

But was able to get up to kiss his wife!
