Sunset Wedding on the Beach in Key West

Simple, intimate weddings allow you to do what YOU want.  Want to wear a traditional wedding dress?  That’s great!  Want to wear a simple beach dress?  That’s great, too.  Or, like Nancy, you could wear a pink cocktail style dress. She even choose the gerber daisy bouquet with matching pink flowers.  She looked wonderful and the sunset was amazing.

Hemingway Home Key West Wedding

March 15th, 2013

The Hemingway Home in Key West is a nice location for a simple wedding. We typically schedule our weddings at 9:00AM, when the museum is just opening for business.  Gary usually takes a couple of photos in front of the house. Then we head to reserved area for the ceremony. After the ceremony, we walk around the property taking posed photos.  The site fees for morning ceremonies are very reasonable.  Larger events can be arranged after hours.  And, the cats are great wedding guests!

Time flies. Mom always said “the older you get, the faster it goes”. Maybe that’s true because 2012 seems like a blur. In fact, it’s hard to believe we are heading into 2013 and our 10th year of business. Our last wedding of the year took place on New Year’s Eve at Smathers Beach. The temperature was nearly 80 degrees and the sunset amazing. Congratulations Tammy and Mike!  We are entering our 10th year of business and looking forward to another great year of weddings in Key West.

“Just Hitched” in Key West

December 4th, 2012

The weather forecast on November 30th was cloudy with a chance of rain. I was scheduled to perform Roberta and Jack’s ceremony on Smather’s beach at 4:45PM with posed photos by Gary afterwards. The rain stayed away but the clouds didn’t. With the day getting darker, Gary was concerned about the photos. So, I called and explained our concerns to Roberta and Jack. They were happy to reschedule to 4PM. Congratulations… and thanks for your flexibility. View their wedding photo gallery.
