A Sunset Key wedding can be described in one word: Destination. You have to come to an island, to get on a boat to another island. When you set foot on the island the sound of scooter horns, bicycle bells, car horns, and tour guides is gone. You hear the water, the birds, and you take it all in. The bougainvillea are in bloom, the palms sway, the greens relax you. To the mind it is very relaxing.
Julia and Matt are a couple that life handpicked to be together. You could feel the excitement, the laughter, the love. We started the day off at the Westin Resort & Marina in Key West. Everyone was joyous, the adrenaline was flowing. We boarded a boat, bound for a land far away, with Matthew blindfolded. I can only imagine what was going through Matthew’s mind, but you could see the massive sense of relief when Julia welcomed his sight back. Its moments like that that set the tone for the rest of the day. Two people lost in the moment. This being my first Sunset Key wedding, I think it happened a bit to me too.
The wedding was peaceful, genuine, and comforting. You could just watch these two and snap a shot here or there, and it worked. That’s the greatest thing to me. When two people are just happy, the people around them feeding the stoke, and you just sit back and enjoy the day. The images resonate the day.
We sunset cruised it up, we danced, we roasted one another, and we said “Let them Eat Cake.”
Congratulations to Julia and Matt. It was an honor to be a part of your day. We wish you many years of happiness in success. A successful Sunset Key wedding. Hopefully this will help you remember.
