I'm Candace and I'm a destination wedding & portrait photographer based out of the Washington, D.C. area. Chances are you won't find me in the DMV for too long. Come and explore my corner of the world with me!
This wedding was a dream you guys! Im doing things slightly backwards but I am just too excited to share these with everyone! Last week, my good friend Andie and I packed up shop and began our trek down to Key West Florida for Jeff and Katies Southernmost Beach Resort Destination Wedding! We made a few stops along the way but instead of starting from the beginning, I wanted to start with the main reason for us heading south in the first place. Andie and I were so excited to be celebrating with Jeff and Katie and their families on the beach. We woke to clear blue skies, gorgeous blue water and a fierce wind that did not want to let up. Never fear though, because a little wind did not rain on anyones parade that day! The beauty experts over at Key West Hair and Make up Artistry had these ladies in tip top shape! Their hair didn’t budge at all!
Southernmost Beach resort was a STUNNING backdrop for Jeff and Katie. We stayed about an hour north of Key West just shy of Marathon so getting the chance to explore one of the best resorts on the island was extra fun! Jeff and Katie snagged a doll of a wedding coordinator, Jenn, who was there for anything we all could have ever needed. The day went so smoothly thanks to her. These two had a beautiful, tears of joy and laugh filled ceremony followed by the hottest after party celebration the Keys had ever seen. The dance floor was packed at all times. Andie had mentioned, you know you have an incredible DJ when they didn’t have to play a single line dance song to get people on the floor, and I concur! Soundwave entertainment killed it, though I do love me a mean wobble, right ladies? haha
I want to send the biggest congratulations to Katie and Jeff. Katie is a firecracker that I wish I could ball up and keep with me whenever I need a smile or I am feeling down because the girl can light up a room. Jeff is such a genuine, down to earth guy and after hearing the speeches, its clear to not only myself, but everyone in attendance, how much Jeff loves Katie. The boy was in tears at the sight of her, as he should because girl was stunning. Just the way they danced together, I love when a groom is so in love with his bride he just can’t keep his eyes, or hands, off of her. I hope these two fully enjoyed their honeymoon in Key West. Im going to speak for Andie, myself and everyone in attendance when I say, it was an honor to be invited down south to celebrate with the two of them. Enjoy my many many favorites from their beautiful wedding day!
A big ole shout out to all of the incredible vendors who helped make this day perfect!
