Amanda and I have known Heather and Jay for years and have the honor of calling them friends. It seems like every time we are all together, we celebrate something! And it was fitting that our final wedding of the year was an all-out 3-day destination celebration. If you are considering a destination wedding, we highly encourage it! Getting away from the known places and routine adds a level of joy and relaxation that is worth the extra investment and effort.
The event began with a casual waterfront meal two nights before the wedding. (If you’re ever travelling through the Florida Keys stop by THE LORELEI, it will be well worth it!) The party continued the next morning on the beach of the Postcard Inn with some fun and sun, then graduated into a beautiful rehearsal, dinner, and welcome party. I love that Heather and Jay invited everyone who traveled to Islamorada to a special Welcome Party after their rehearsal dinner. And, of course, it was gorgeous. The wedding itself was a scene from a movie. Beautiful beach homes, sand, water, palm trees, sabres, live music, key west – the works. In partnership with the outstanding KATE BENTLEY, Heather and Jay crafted an event of epic proportions and intimate beauty. Words just won’t give it the proper tribute…so on to the photos!
All our love to you both, Heather and Jay! Thank you for allowing us to partner with you in life.
