Cindy + Alan | Key West, Florida | Destination Wedding

by Emily Pogozelski

We joined Cindy + Alan for their weekend of wedding celebrations in Key West. The weather was warm, but a refreshingly brisk breeze held a hint of fall, even in this beach setting. Cindy got ready at the Hyatt before their waterfront ceremony, where close friends and family gathered and Alan’s daughter and son served as maid of honor and best man. After portraits around the Hyatt property, everyone waved goodbye to Cindy + Alan as they hopped in a pedicab. We caught a ride with videographer Joanna on her tiny electric car, and she was awesome enough to zoom past the pedicab so that Em could catch a shot (admittedly off-kilter from the way she was perching on Steve’s knees!) of the couple, surprised to see us. Steve shouted, “We’re EVERYWHERE!” before we headed to the reception.

Reminding us a bit of our own intimate wedding, friends and family booked out the entire Ambrosia Bed + Breakfast for the weekend, providing a beautiful courtyard for dinner and dancing. Sparkling string lights, towering trees, a fresh breeze, and the glitter of the pool all lent a hand in the setting, while friends and family got out on the dance floor and seriously danced. Heartfelt speeches touched the couple as well as the guests; after delicious food by the talented Seth Haller, hilarious antics during the garter and bouquet tosses, and lots of yummy cake, it was sweetest to see Cindy + Alan striding confidently away from the reception to the scene on Duval Street, hand in hand.

Many thanks to everyone for making us feel like part of the party! Check out some of our favorites from the wedding day, and click here to be notified when the rest of the images are in Cindy + Alan’s gallery! (And check back soon for their Day After Session around Key West.)
