It’s been about a month since my last blog post. I’m really bad at this writing stuff. I promised myself that I would blog often, but its SO hard for me. I’ll try harder for 2012.
A lot has happened in a month. I was busy shooting families for the holidays, I went back to West Virginia to shoot two weddings, celebrated Christmas here in Miami, got to go to the Orange Bowl to watch the Mountaineers destroy Clemson, celebrated my 24th birthday, AND I was published.
I submitted Emely and Ryan’s Key West Wedding back in October to the Eco Beautiful Weddings Blog and later found out that they accepted my work! A few weeks later I started getting so busy that I was quite stressed…no, let me rephrase that.. beyond stressed. I received an email stating that not only did they like my Key West wedding, but they wanted to feature it on their online (Eco friendly 😉 ) magazine!! I jumped out of my chair… no really I did.
Emely and Ryan decided to elope to Key West all the way from Ohio. It was a gorgeous sunset wedding on Smather’s Beach. Smather’s Beach a secluded beautiful beach located in the southern portion of Key West. They had no plans for a reception and the only guest they had was her sister and brother in law. Earlier that day I was eating lunch at Blue Heaven (my wonderful fiance drug me there- Thanks Frank!If you are ever in the area you HAVE to go) and while looking around at the dirt floors, roosters roaming every where, and their massive key lime pie it occurred to me that I needed to bring Ryan and Emely here for a “reception” of some sort. Thankfully they trusted me and I’m so glad they did. They were surrounded by beautiful Caribbean colors and even made a rooster friend. They toasted their champagne and had their “wedding cake”- The best Key Lime Pie on the island.
Check out Emely and Ryan’s 4 page spread in Eco Beautiful Weddings Magazine (pages 90-93) to read more about their day!
Here are some of my favorites from Emely and Ryan’s Key West Wedding..
How sweet is this?
I cried too. Notice the little boy in the background? I think he thought no one could see him behind that palm tree
