Cheeca Lodge Elopement

One thing that I really want to highlight from Caitlin + Josh’s Cheeca Lodge elopement is the amazing video that Kurt put together. It’s seriously my FAVE!  They were so laid back, had a zoom wedding ceremony, and were just surrounded by so much LOVE!!!


In fact, when describing their wedding in three words, they said, “whole lotta love”. When looking at the photos, that’s exactly what you feel. 

The towering and crossed palms, dazzling turquoise water, and sandy beaches of the Cheeca Lodge made the perfect tropical Florida Keys venue for Caitlin + Josh’s beautiful ceremony and the start of their marriage. These two beach and ocean lovers fell in love with Cheeca Lodge not only for the beauty of Islamorada, but for the convenience of everything in one spot, that allowed for everyone to hang in one place and truly soak up the weekend of fun. 

After taking some gorgeous getting ready photos, the couple met under the stunning crossed palms archway for a first look.

Allison of Golden Pineapple Events coordinated and helped with touch ups so everything went smoothly for the couple. 

Caitlin’s lace dress was absolutely stunning amongst the sand, water, and palms, and Josh’s blue Brooks Brothers suit complimented it perfectly… but can we take a minute to appreciate her veil in the wind?! 

Caitlin and Josh had never had photos taken and requested lots of direction. I think they absolutely rocked these shots by the water and down the pier. These two were naturals, and honestly, you can just feel the love. 

Afterwards, the reception was set up beautifully amongst the palms, in the sand, and pool side for sunset right there at the lodge.

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.
