A tropical, simple and stress-free day was the goal for Allison as she planned her Florida Keys wedding with her best friend and husband-to-be, Tony. “We both joke that if it were possible, he would have been my maid of honor and I would have been his best man. I know it’s cliché but we’re really each other’s best friend.”
With that goal in mind, Key Largo was the perfect wedding destination for Allison and Tony. Not only does Key Largo embody this winning wedding combination, it’s also home to Allison’s parents, and some of the most breathtaking sunsets in the U.S.
Including a magical bayside sunset was important to the bride because it was her way to include her grandmother, who passed away in 2018, in her special day. “We used to watch sunsets together on vacation. I felt like as long as we could watch the sunset, I knew I’d feel my grandma there with me.”
Key Largo is also home to newly renovated Baker’s Cay, a beautiful 15-acre bayfront sanctuary. Adorned with an abundance of classic white peonies, lush evergreen garlands and monstera leaf accents, this nature inspired Florida Keys wedding venue perfectly achieved the tropical theme Allison and Tony were after.
Allison and Tony agreed not to sweat the small stuff. Their advice to newly engaged couples is to keep your eye on the prize – a long and happy marriage. “I keep telling engaged couples, that it’s not worth stressing the details. As long as you’re marrying the love of your life, nothing else matters.”
The simple act of hiring a top-notch team of local professionals for their Florida Keys wedding day covered this detail with ease. “Working with Wendy and Carin made the entire day so seamless and I can’t imagine that day without them and the team at Baker’s Cay.”
Mission accomplished Allison and Tony! Best wishes to you both for a long and happy marriage. It was a pleasure and a privilege working with you on your big day!
