I always enjoy sitting at my computer and going over the wedding night that I'm about to write about. It's like I get to relive another awesome wedding during the week. When I sit back to think of all the great memories shared at Kylie + Kevin's Key West wedding, I remember how beautiful the weather was. I know it's a bit funny to think about that right off the bat, but I remember them showing concern about the wedding, and my only (comforting) response was that Key West has a funny way of coming through with beautiful weather. I wasn't sure what else I could say, but I just knew things would turn around. It had, and everything about the weather was perfect! Photo Credit: Limelight Photography
I was the DJ for their ceremony, cocktail hour, as well as the reception, and was also contracted to do string lighting. My job never gets old. Everyone was having a great time dancing and sharing memories, and I always love being a part of that interaction. Great Events Catering put out an amazing display, as always, cooking up nothing but the best menu with the freshest ingredients. Did you know that these guys bring out a kabob grill as part of their presentation?! Now that's first class! It was also the elegant flower arrangements done by Love In Bloom that created a nice focal point at each table, while providing a very nice bride bouquet that added great colors to Kylie's dress. A Modern Romance was the wedding planner and everything stayed nice and organized.
As the sun began to set, it was then that our string lighting really started to pop. This job we did is our newest design at the Southernmost Mansion, and I think it really brings out the hard lines of the property. It's not too much, where it becomes overpowering in pictures, but gives just enough light for people to see as their walking around (very important), and having it along the side of the pool creates an amazing reflection in the water that makes for beautiful pictures. Now that we've done away with stringing the lights across the pool, it has opened up the amazing architecture of the house in all the photos. I think the photos below speak for themselves, as Limelight Photography did a wonderful job in capturing priceless moments throughout the night.
Another flawless wedding night in Key West and a big congratulations goes out to the wonderful couple, Kylie + Kevin!
