This Luxury Islamorada Elopement is definitely my cup of tea! As Miami Wedding Photographer, I love to drive down to the Key, and what a pleasure to shoot a wedding there. Well, I can consider this as a destination wedding photographer job.
2-3 years ago, I posted on Facebook that I could help to organize weddings in Miami for couples from middle Europe. Nika and Marek found this Facebook page thru Google and reached out to me. They wanted an intimate wedding in Miami. I found out a few details about them, and I suggested doing it in Islamorada at my favorite place. And now I can say it was a blast!
Marek booked a cottage at Mooring Village, which is my favorite resort in the entire Florida Keys. That way, we got the opportunity to do a ceremony at their gorgeous beach right at sunset time. There was nothing less perfect than 98%. Beautiful couple, fabulous wedding dress, perfect makeup, and the most gorgeous beach in the entire Florida! What a blast, this Luxury Islamorada Elopement!
It started with flawless makeup and hair provided by Linda Schonning, owner of Florida Keys Bridal Team. She worked with real celebrities all over the world, and you can see that the makeup and hair she had done were just perfect!
The first step was a fabulous first look. That designer bridal gown flowing in the wind… it’s even hard to describe with just words. It was flawless. I will try to upload one behind-the-scenes video from Peter’s iPhone.
The ceremony was short but heartwarming. We prepared one surprise for the couple. They were serenaded by my friend, famous viola player Peter Kiral. Peter also got another job; he got to toss real rose petals on them right during the first kiss! After the ceremony, we went just across the street to another side of the island to Morada Bay, where we were able to capture other great shots and some silhouettes. Their intimate wedding ended with dinner at Pierre’s Restaurant on their terrace overlooking the ocean after the sunset. What a gorgeous Luxury Islamorada Elopement!
