How can you go wrong in the Florida Keys!  Sean and Rachel’s wedding in Islamorada, Florida was one of our most enjoyable weddings to date.  Being in such a beautiful place with such great people is inspiring to say the least.  They picked a private estate to host their big day which allowed for some amazing sunset shots as well as a beautiful backdrop for the reception.  On the water is probably my favorite place to be so when we get to use that as the scene for a couples wedding story it excites us to no end.  Rachel took the day to relax and get ready with her bridesmaids at the estate and the day couldn’t have been more beautiful and relaxing.  Rachel and Sean both had amazing attitudes about the entire wedding.  No stress, no worries, just fun with family and friends.  As the day progressed the backyard was transformed into both a ceremony site and reception site.  The ceremony was on the dock overlooking the water.  Sean and Rachel had some of their closest friends and family members share at the ceremony and give a glimpse into their relationship.  As the ceremony came to a close the sun was setting into place for some amazingly beautiful images for their portrait session.  We love that they were able to catch a few intimate moments while watching the sun go down.  The reception turned out to be one of the  liveliest we have seen!  Family and friends danced the night away with the sea breeze blowing across the dance floor.  Lauren (my wife and second shooter for most wedding we do)  and I took a couple moments to step onto the dock and just observe the ocean, the party, and the breeze and it was a moment I will never forget!  Seeing so many people so joyous on the shoreline and looking back over our shoulder and seeing the beautiful of the ocean behind us, we couldn’t have been in a more perfect moment anywhere else.  We are so blessed to have had the opportunity to capture both photo and video for Sean and Rachel’s big day and it is one we will never forget.  The Florida Keys makes for the perfect destination wedding and here are a few moments from their once in a lifetime wedding day.
