Travel | Key West-Key Largo 2013

arial panorama of Key West

6 years ago we went to Key West. Before we left, Steve proposed to me. He later said that he wanted to propose while we were there, but he just couldn’t wait. To say the least, we loved it.

5 years ago we got married, and we decided to go back to Key West for our honeymoon. It easily became our favorite place in the world.

Over the past 5 years we’ve turned Steve’s entire family into Florida Keys lovers. My sister-in-law Tracey and her Husband Nick spent their honeymoon on Sunset Key just off Key West, and his parents bought a time share up in Key Largo where they go twice a year.

Every year they were trying to get us to come along but we felt horrible leaving our dog (he’s pretty high maintenance.) This year Tracey and Nick offered to watch him for us, Tracey even took a few days off from work so that Rexy wouldn’t be alone all day. So we spent some time in Key Largo, then in Key West, and then Back in Key Largo.

The keys are our favorite place in the world. The only thing that sucked was coming home to the north east during our coldest week of the year. 9 degrees kinda sucks when you’ve been in 75-80 degree weather all week.

List of places/things we recommend if you’re heading to the Keys

Robert is Here (the awesome-est fruit stand I’ve ever been to with the best milkshakes ever. It’s in the everglades before Key Largo. One of our couple’s, Rebecca and Jason actually recommended we stop there in an email a while back and we weren’t even looking for it, we just got lucky stumbled upon it… and Robert rang us up:-)

Old Town Mexican Cafe - the quesedillas were awesome.

Onlywood Pizzeria Trattoria – Ironic as it seems, this was some of the best Italian food I’ve ever had, and yes that includes the east coast.

Better than Sex Desert Restaurant – a bunch of awesome home made deserts with naughty names, what more could you want?

We stayed at The Heron House Court. It was built over 100 years ago by Henry Flagler, which is awesome. We were only about a half mile from Duval St., and Roman, the host, is one of the nicest people you could ever meet.

Check out the Key West Butterfly and Nature Conservatory. The butterflies really liked Steve, probably because he’s so sweet:-)

and you have to watch a sunset from Mallory Square, but that’s kinda obvious.

this is a strange mix of “real” photos and iPhone/VSCOcam photos…

NYC Wedding Photographers | Rockefeller Center Wedding Photography | Theresa & Ryan’s 12/12/12 Wedding

NYC Wedding Photographers

Theresa and Ryan’s wedding was fun, emotional, beautiful, and… different. Of course every wedding is different, but Theresa and Ryan’s wedding took place on two different days, the first half being on 12/12/12. They had a beautiful family gathering ceremony in NYC at Rockefeller Plaza in front of the tree on what is the last repetitive date anyone reading this blog post will ever see, and their first kiss was at 12:12pm.

I couldn’t believe the excitement on Ryan’s face when he saw Theresa for the first time. It’s hard to not feel the excitement of the crowd, and Theresa’s three kids who all hugged their mother and her new husband immediately after the kiss, and then her son Nathan jumped into Ryan’s arms… it was amazing.

They had their reception a few days later, and the magic was still there. Halfway into their first dance they jumped into a medley of songs, including thriller, and surprised all their guests.

I don’t think I can explain their chemistry well enough in words… so please check out the photos and see for yourself…

Karen and Dave love the winter, and Christmas time. While there was no snow, we were still able to capture the romance of winter time with some night time portraits.

Karen looked beautiful (LOVE her dress,) and Dave was the life of the party. Karen is also an awesome baker and so she made those adorable cupcakes (along with 400 others for their guests… and us :-))
