Megan and Tyler
St Mary’s Basilica
Margaritaville Resort and Marina
Today’s forecast called for blue skies and 70-degree weather. All the beginnings of a picture perfect Island wedding. Megan & Tyler couldn’t have been blessed with a more beautiful day. This couple who met 3 years ago at a bar in Miami decided on Key West, FL as the place for their “I do’s”. A decision that they would never regret.
The day started with the bride getting ready at the Chelsea House, a historic boutique hotel that is centrally located in the Old Town area of Key West. There she was joined by her nieces, bridesmaids and grandfather. All of whom were in the best of spirits; laughter and a playful vibe filled up the room. Once professional makeup artist Marie-Pierre of Studio Marie-Pierre finished making the bride and her wedding party look and feel special, everyone was pumped for the ceremony.
The church, St. Mary Star of the Sea, was filled with family and friends from all over. Flowers from Mama Flowers adorned the already exquisite chapel, as well as the echo’s of laughter and excitement, which were then silenced by Tyler entering the room and replaced by the clicks of everyone’s cameras. Tyler looked dapper in his grey suit. I could tell he was nervous and anxious for it all to begin. Luckily he did not have too long to wait. As the organ changed music for Megan to come in, the doors opened and before his eyes his beautiful bride appeared. Megan came down the aisle escorted by her father with the biggest smile ever. She was happy, it was her moment. The ceremony was lovely and very sentimental, especially when Megan took notice of her grandmother by the front of the church in her wheelchair. When it was all over and they were pronounced man and wife the crowd cheered with the exception of the ring bearer who was in all tears. It was an awesome photo moment. Lol
Old Town Trolley had the honors of driving the bridal party, family, bride and groom to the Margaritaville Resort, the reception locale. There the happy couple had their first dance to the song “Come to me” by the Goo Goo Dolls and the father of bride gave an emotional speech that just melted his little girls heart. Once all the wedding formalities and eating was done, the drinking (well more drinking) and dancing began. Guests rushed to the dance floor and made sure that every bit of the night was celebrated. There was lots of twirling, people getting down low, low, low and many other picture perfect moments.
Like I said in the beginning, getting married in Key West, FL was a decision Megan and Tyler will never regret, and they didn’t.
