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

Alicia & Brent | Hyatt Key West Wedding | Key West Wedding Photographer

It had seemed like forever since we did Alicia (and it’s pronounced Ali-SH-a) and Brent’s engagement session, well both of them.  So it also seemed like it took forever for their Key West wedding to get here and it did and holy cow was it a blast!

I got into the Keys on Friday and let’s just say that the weather was not cooperating.  It was rainy, chilly (for Key West) and the wind was blowing just a little more than we wanted it to.  We ended up having the rehearsal under a pavilion at the Hyatt since that would be the back up plan if it rained on Saturday.  Eh, we weren’t all that excited about it (let’s be honest here because you go to Key West to get married on/by the water) but we can’t do anything about Mother Nature.

Saturday morning we got up and there was still a bit of an overcast but by 10am, the rainy clouds had parted and we had gorgeous Key West blue skies!  I sent Alicia a text saying “We’re having a wedding on the dock today!!!!”, she sent me back a picture over looking the water from their hotel room and it was on!  Mother Nature came through and we were having a dock wedding!

Their day couldn’t of been more perfect and thank you to all the vendors that made it possible.  Having a destination wedding can sometimes be a little unnerving since you are hiring vendors from so far away (but that’s why they brought me down there lol) but everyone made it amazing!

Beau….oh Beau!  Seriously you are one of my best father of the brides!  Alicia did a first look and shot with her dad before the ceremony.  I’ll spare the photo of Alicia’s face after she took the shot lol  She’d probably kill me for that one 😉

When Alicia was little, she had tons of Polly Pockets.  And by tons, I mean TUBS!  So her mom found her the bride and groom Polly Pocket for her.
