Mackensie + Garrett’s Casa Marina Resort Wedding


Mackensie and Garrett were supposed to get married at Casa Marina Key West in April. Mackensie called me in September to tell me that there was a surprise headed their way in March, and they were hoping to reschedule to January. Not a problem! I was available and had actually just found out about a surprise of my own, due in April! It worked out perfectly.

I know I’ve said this a million times, but Casa Marina Key West is one of my favorite wedding venues because you literally don’t have to leave the venue for ANYTHING. Getting ready there is a breeze because the rooms all have gorgeous light. The ceremony on the beach is always perfect. The ballrooms aren’t dated and ugly. Walking around property gives you PLENTY of choices for portraits. Plus (and most importantly) the food is delicious.

King Proteas FOREVER.

Right outside Casa Marina is a gorgeous wall of bougainvillea that, when in bloom, are PACKED with color. It’s one of my favorite spots in Key West and I always suggest it as the first look location for my clients getting married at Casa Marina Key West.

Doing a first look allows you to get ALL of the portraits done before the ceremony, so you can just get right to the park after you say ‘I do’. We snuck out for a few sunset photos, but all the family and bridal party portraits were finished before even walking down the aisle!

I LOVED these bold florals for the ceremony, because Duarte Florals did a fantastic job, as usual!

Y’all…Mackensie dropped Garrett’s ring. I nearly died. She found it, but it nearly stopped my heart!

ABOUT Alyssa

At home near the sea. Ever-focused on beauty and the thrilling art of creation; found in the moments that leave me breathless and in awe. 

Growing up, photos always fascinated me.  I was raised to be inquisitive, ask questions, and appreciate history.  What better way to peak someone's interest than with a photograph?  

I always thought I would end up in the pages of Vogue (though I still hope!), but after the tragic loss of my mother, I turned to wedding photography on a whim and fell in love with the energy that can only be found when two people decide on forever.  The overwhelming joy, nostalgia, and attention to detail captured my heart in 2012, and I never looked back.

I squeeze clients meetings in between nap times, and I drive my kids to school and daycare only to run into meetings with designers, florists, and beautiful clients before racing back to gather them back up again. The most amazing part, is that I feel most alive in this environment. Wedding days are chaotic, just like parenting.  Couples and families require empathy and genuine care, just like my children.  

I expertly navigate your wedding from my extensive experience in this industry, and what this offers you is the peace of mind on your wedding day to relax and enjoy what you have created. Booking with Alyssa Morgan Photography allows you to sit back, enjoy your party, and trust that every part of the day is going to be handled with ease, grace, and a whole lot of laughter along the way.

Adventurer.  Traveler.  Mother.
