Lyndsay and Andrew were chosen as one of two couples for a destination wedding promotion through WeddingBee a year ago (the second is later this month in Jamaica).
Worth noting, Lyndsay and Andrew were scheduled to have their wedding at another resort which has been under renovation for some time. They were promised it would be ready for their nuptials (you see where this is going...). A month before the wedding, they flew from their home in Baltimore to Florida to have one final look and it was disastrous. No waitstaff, no liquor license- no kitchen! Not even door knobs into the ballroom! Luckily, they were able to secure Beachside, a glorious new resort that just opened in October (the hotel rooms are high-end condos).
On to the pictures (there are a lot of them!)...
Lyndsay and her very fun mom Lana had their hair done at a very sweet beauty/clothing shop in town. The experience, unfortunately, was unsatisfactory so I am not going to post the name.
It was so cute inside! Felt like we were in a scene from Fried Green Tomatoes.
The pretty ceremony setting just before sunset.
Andrew and his groomsmen waiting for the ceremony to start. I like how this almost has the look of a posed portrait even tho he only looked at my lens for a split moment.
How sweet is this?! Lyndsay's mom and stepdad watching Lyndsay walk up the aisle with her brother.
J ran to the other side of the resort and onto the roof to zoom in and capture the scene from above. Great effort, J!
One happy bride!
I love this sliver of smile that J captured.
The moms congratulating each other.
The bridal party.
Lyndsay's beautiful rings (that engagement ring does have a canary diamond).
I couldn't decide which was my favorite portrait of Lyndsay and Andrew, so I'll post a few. Do you have a favorite?
A hysterical garter capture.
Dance floor action by J.
And one last random collage.
Thank you so much for having us, Lyndsay and Andrew. You and your families were a blast to be with in beautiful Key West. Wishing you both lots of happiness in the years ahead! Hope to see you again at Mary's wedding soon (wink, wink). Hugs!
