It is really hard to not to fall in love with the idea of jet setting to the Florida Keys, and having an Elegant Islamorada Beach Wedding. We think it will be hard for you as well after you see Maggie and Ryan’s intimate beach wedding.
Maggie and Ryan were high school sweethearts and on a surprise romantic trip to the Florida Keys, Ryan got down on one knee and finally asked Maggie to marry him. Captured beautifully by one of our Hand-Picked wedding vendors KT Merry. You must see more of this stunning wedding in the full gallery.
From the bride:
Ryan and I started dating when we were 17 years old. Whenever I pictured my wedding day, he was the only person I could ever imagine waiting for me at the end of the aisle. On a surprise romantic trip to the Florida Keys, Ryan got down on one knee and finally asked me to marry him. I have been going down to Islamorada with Ryan ever since we started dating as teenagers. We have so many memories there and through the years it has become a very special place for us.
It was not easy for us to decide to have our wedding in Islamorada. Both of our families are from Chicago and it would have made a lot of sense to have the wedding there. However, Islamorada was where we pictured saying our vows to one another and spending time with our closest family and friends. Once we made the decision to get married in Islamorada, we never looked back. Ryan and I spent a lot of time planning even the smallest details of the wedding. It wasn’t always easy; but in the end, it was all worth it. We could not have pictured a more perfect day. We felt like we were in a dream.
