Adrienne and Damiens Key West wedding was an absolute blast! I met these two in February for their engagement session in downtown Fayetteville, AR. We really connected and I loved how fun and spontaneous they were!
When I found out they were getting married in Key West, I was so excited! I had to join in on the fun! So I brought my husband Kyle with me and we flew out to Florida the following September!
We spent the week exploring Key West, and even went on a crazy fun deep sea fishing trip with Adrienne and Damien and their family! We had a blast and caught barricudas, mahi mahi, tuna, and more!
When it was finally wedding day, we were ready! Damien and Adrienne wanted to do a non-traditional way of getting ready by getting ready for the wedding together! They helped each other get dressed at the Casa Marina Resort which had a gorgeous view of the ocean!
BRIDE + GROOM PORTRAITS
After they were all dressed up and ready to go, we headed down to the outside of the Casa Marina resort to get some stunning portraits of just the two of them! The Casa Marina is a luxury resort right on the beach and we were able to get some gorgeous shots with their tall columns, big windows, beautiful palm trees and of course the hotel itself in the background!
EXPLORING KEY WEST
Before the ceremony, Adrienne and Damien wanted to go on a fun adventure and get a photo at their favorite landmarks in Key West. Damien grew up in Key West, FL and was so excited to show everyone all of his favorite spots!
We stopped at the Southernmost Point of the U.S, Sloppy Joe’s Bar, Highway 1, and the Marina! It was a whirlwind and we had fun driving all over Key West capturing these photos, and jumping back into the car to make it to their ceremony!
Damien and Adrienne wanted an intimate ceremony with their closest family and friends who flew in from all over the country to be apart of it all! It was a perfect, sunny day and I loved the white sand, blue sky and all the gorgeous palm trees!
A few of my favorite moments from the ceremony were Adrienne’s dad walking her down the aisle and twirling her at the end, Damiens big smile as he saw Adrienne walking towards him, the little puppies some of the guests brought along and of course the flower girls blowing bubbles!
They ended the ceremony with a toast and it was the perfect start of their lives as Mr. and Mrs. Cooke!
The day ended with family photos, a champagne pop on the beach and dinner and cake at their favorite raw bar at the marina!
It was a beautiful, adventurous, fun day! Check out more photos from their wedding in Key West, Florida below!
