Teryn and Scott chose to come down to the Keys from Atlanta for a Hemingway Home wedding. Planning a destination wedding can be a challenge for sure, but I would say with help from Peggy at Destination Wedding Studio, they pulled it off. It was a drop dead gorgeous day, and I’m not just talking about the weather.
Getting Ready and Portraits
Scott and his groomsmen wore classic black tuxedos, and I really can’t blame them. How handsome?!
Teryn’s Daughter’s of Simone gown was TO. DIE. FOR! I am OBSESSED with the back!
Is it weird that I want to print this photo of her bouquet and hang it in my office? Because I’m seriously considering it…
Teryn and Scott decided to do a first look before their Hemingway Home wedding. We went to this gorgeous old banyan tree I know of in Key West. If you’re not sure if a first look is for you, CLICK HERE. There are some major benefits to breaking tradition, especially if you are having a ceremony later in the day, like right before sunset.
After their first look, we decided to wander through Truman Annex for some portraits. This is a super quiet area of Key West that has stunning, well manicured homes that make the perfect backdrop for portraits.
Once we finished with portraits of Teryn and Scott, it was time to head over the the Hemingway Home for some group photos before the ceremony. This is another added benefit of doing a first look; we were able to get 95% of all the group photos done BEFORE the ceremony, so everyone could just relax and get the party started after the vows were exchanged.
Ceremony and Reception
And then it was time to say ‘I do!’, honestly my favorite part of the day. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE portraits because that’s where I get to be super creative, but the ceremony it what it’s all about!
