Do yourself a little favor this lovely Tuesday and allow some time in your day to get a little lost in these dreamy images from Key West by Mi Amore Foto. Close your office door or turn your computer ever so slightly in your cubical so you can really soak up all the loveliness. The setting of this wedding will have you swooning, the flower girls will have you ready to pinch cheeks and the engagement ring will have you oohing and ahhing. There is oh so much more in the full gallery, so keep that door closed and dive on in.
From Mi Amore Foto…Karli and Jonathan are some of the warmest people I have ever met. As a destination wedding photographer, you are pretty much going into the situation blind. I mean, you have phone conversations, an occasional Skype, but you don’t usually meet face to face until the wedding day. So, you always wonder what the couple will really be like, nerves and all. From the moment I walked into the beautiful cottage house, at the Westin, until the moment I left, Karli and Jonathan made me feel like a guest at their wedding. I couldn’t have felt more like family.
There were many beautiful moments, from everyone in prayer circles before the wedding, to Karli’s father crying the whole ceremony (I’m a sucker for dad’s crying). There were even a group of ladies who made their own hats saying,”THIS is the Royal wedding!” It was a really warm day in the Keys, but not as warm as the energy you felt around this couple and their loved ones.
It was also neat because this was the first wedding that the Westin, Sunset Key, was setting up a large tent for the wedding. They did an outstanding job and everything went flawlessly.
