{Kelli & Nick} Two Less Fish in the Sea

Two less fish in the sea, and ONE BIG HAPPY FAMILY. I knew I was walking into a room of bridesmaids and sisters, but the love was so big - you couldn't tell who was on the bride's side or the grooms! It just seemed like one big happy family, and when you hear Kelli & Nick's love story, you kinda know why: Kelli and Nick met 9 yrs ago at a friends party and they have been together ever since. He proposed to her at the Ocean Reef Club in Key Largo Thanksgiving of 2014. So, "It was a long time a'coming" if you ask the family!

Everything, all the details came together so beautifully - from these adorable tabletop favors to the sparkles in the dresses to the seawood decor. I think my favorite detail, surprisingly was the pink accents with the beach decor, it beautifully complimented the girls and looked really nice in person and in the pictures.

See the bling in the flowers by Floral Fantasy of Islamorada?...beautiful and really complimented her dress, by Allure. The tool had tiny sparkles, pictures couldnt even capture all the sparkle, it was awesome.   I love weddings at Cheeca Lodge because the backdrop is always so breathtaking and there is always so much to beauty around to shoot with!

This mini-bride was so cute, her dress matched Kelli's so perfectly! It was adorable. 

The moment Kelli and her mom took a few moments to put on the final details, all the girls in the room were trying hard not to cry (even myself!) It was really a beautiful and special moment. 

The beach wedding ceremony was gorgeous and it was a beautiful warm day. 

"Clear the Aisle, Here comes my Aunt!" 

The tears were rolling as the bride walked down arm-in-arm with her Father, and as he hugged her and gave her over to the groom, it was a moment rich in emotion we could all feel.

 

After the ceremony and a little celebrating, we opted to do the family photos right there on the beach background of Cheeca Lodge and take advantage of the nice light the cloud cover was offering. I was really excited these turned out so nice, what a beautiful venue and a gorgeous day. 

After the toasts and some apps, I stole the couple out to the Cheeca Lodge dock to grab a few portraits as the sun was setting and casting rich pink and blue tones across the sky that beautifully complimented them.  This cake by Bobs Bunz in Islamorada was Key Lime cake with Raspberry filing....so in other words, it tasted as amazing as it looked!  But first, some dancing and getting down with Dads. 

Do the Hustle! Again we snuck away to get a few night portraits and some of our favorite locations around the Cheeca venue, under the Tarpon - for the love of fishing, and of course and the famous tiki-torches. It was nice to see the bride and groom relax and just enjoy a few quiet moments alone as their wedding day was coming to an end. 

What a special family that the two come together as one so seamlessly, it was absolutely beautiful. All the best to you Kelli & Nick, congratulations! It was an honor to be your photographer!
