Just wait until you see the stunning photos from this Sunset Key wedding! Experiencing a sunset over the water in Key West is one of the most uniquely breathtaking sights in America. Sabina and John were blessed to be able to marry amongst their 50 closest friends and family in this gorgeous destination. The folks with Lavryk Photography captured some of the sweetest photos you’ll ever see; Sabina and John’s love radiates pure joy. The ceremony was simple, elegant and frankly, perfect.
Sabina and John chose lovely décor that mirrored the vibe at the Sunset Key Cottages. Their rustic yet chic vibe transformed the setting into something truly romantic and unique. The long farm tables made the entire event feel so family oriented, intimate and fun. They chose simple white and wood details to allow the overwhelming beauty of the ocean/sunset combo shine… however they didn’t forget where they were. Key West is known for its vibrancy and fun, so as the sun went down, colorful lights lit up the dancefloor and gorgeous white drapery of the tent. Also, Sabina’s bouquet and their cake featured a mix of bright tropical flowers that made for an absolutely stunning pop of color.
Why did you choose to have a sunset key wedding?
We chose Key West because it was tropical yet conveniently in the States. We loved Sunset Key Cottages because it was such a unique venue, not to mention the perfect setting for a destination beach wedding and waterfront reception.
