Mallory Square Bagpiper

Last weekend we had a sunset sail wedding aboard the Blue Ice – a 47′ sailing yacht. The days before the wedding had been unseasonably hot and a bit windy. Luckily the wedding day was cooler and very pleasant. Onboard were the bride, groom, four of their friends, the captain, mate plus Gary and I. As we left the marina, we sailed past the sunset celebration at Mallory Square. The dock was crowded with performers, vendors and waving tourists. A few even shouted their congratulations to the bride and groom. The “Southernmost Bagpiper” was in his usual position next to the Conch Fritter stand. Upon seeing our boat, he offered a special salute to the couple by playing his version of “Here Comes The Bride”. We then sailed about a mile offshore and performed the wedding on the bow. Afterwards, everyone relaxed with some drinks and enjoyed yet another amazing Keys sunset.
