Summer in Key West | Planning a Wedding

Thursday, May 17th, 2012

Key West summers are long. The temperatures start to rise in May and continue through October. The ocean water is warm and it’s a great time to snorkel, kayak, or just hang at the beach. We took advantage of a pleasant May evening by dining outdoors at Blue Heaven. The restaurant is a very popular breakfast spot (be prepared to wait) but they also serve very creative, fresh dinners. The atmosphere is more funky than romantic, so I wouldn’t consider it a good choice for a intimate wedding dinner. However, for a group, it would be a fun Key West experience.  Even though it’s hot, summer is still a nice time for your Key West wedding.

This One Set A Record…Elope to Key West

Elope to Key West

Since we offer simple weddings, it’s not unusual for us to receive last minute requests.  For many reasons, lots of couples elope to Key West.  As long as we are available, we can make your wedding plans in very little time. Last Tuesday just before 11:00AM, I received a phone call from Brian. He and his wife-to-be, Michele, had arrived that morning on a cruise ship and were at the Key West county courthouse obtaining their marriage license. They wanted to get married before their ship departed at 2PM. We met at Smathers beach and I pronounced them husband and wife by noon. Gary took some posed photos around the beach. By 1:00PM they were standing on Duval Street in front of Sloppy Joe’s. Whew…talk about short notice! It’s a good thing Key West is a tiny island.
