Adrienne & Caleb's Wedding

What a beautiful wedding in the Keys! This is the type of wedding that was absolutely perfect in every way. The weather, sunset, vendors, location, people, everything; all of it just panned out amazing. When Adrienne put on her dress and the head wrap the room stopped in awe. She looked like a bohemian beach princess. When we arrived at this venue I remember questioning if I was still in Florida. It reminded of an island in the Caribbean over-populated by coconut palms that made it their home. There was green, blue, white and light tan. Not another color in sight. The reception was styled looking like it came straight out of the most popular wedding instagram feed. Immediately after a short but sweet ceremony on the shoreline, we walked out on a long dock at least 200 yards long over a glassy, windless atlantic ocean. The water was sparkling on top but clear enough to see the sand below. The sun set and filled the sky with magenta hues painted abstractly over the canopy of palms. There is nothing more that I enjoy then capturing this intimate moment between husband and wife as they share their first time together. As the sun faded and the sky filled with stars, the outdoor lights kicked on and the celebration began.  Vibrations of love and joy filled the air and the night ended with a sendoff of sky lanterns. All in all, we are so honored for the opportunity to document this wedding and can't thank Adrienne, Caleb and all of the vendors who made this day so perfect.
