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

Emily & Albert | Cloudland Station Wedding

** WARNING – TONS OF PICTURES **

Emily…my sweet Emily lol  3 years ago, I was pushing for senior reps for my high school seniors and Emily answered.  From that point on, she has remained a friend, I looked at her like a daughter, watched her graduate, become my babysitter (Jacob loves her) and then my assistant for all of 2015.

September of 2015, she headed to Georgia to pursue her dreams.  Little did she know that when she headed up there, she was also going to meet the man of her dreams.  In walks Albert.  He swept her off her feet and shares her love of Disney.

When he proposed last year, I got a text from Emily with just a picture of the ring on her finger.  I immediately got a huge smile on my face and if caps could be any bigger, my O M G <3 would of been huge!  About 2 months later, she shot me an email and said they had finalized everything with Cloudland Station and that is where they were having the wedding.  In came Google and I fell in love with the venue.  The fall wedding, with the fall colors didn’t hurt for this Florida girl.

Emily thought of everything and Cloudstation was really the perfect fit for them.

Nice thing about Emily being my assistant for a year?  She knew exactly what she wanted.

Huge shout out to all the vendors that made Emily’s day possible.  Also to all the family/friends that made sure everything was decorated and just right.
