Cheryl and Craig’s Key Largo Wedding

Click on the arrow above to play the slide show.


We traveled down to Key Largo this past weekend for a fun time with some great folks.  The families of Craig and Cheryl found a great location called Alligator Reef, a secluded group of condos with lots of space for weddings, receptions and just having fun getting to know each other.

While all the big folks were frantically getting ready for the big event these guys had their own agenda.

We took the bridal party to a secluded location on the bay side of Islemarada right after the wedding. Although we had permission in advance, we were told when we arrived that another wedding was just about to start and we had 15 minutes! The following several shots were all made in that 15 minutes...

The bridal party looks like they're taking a break, but trust me, they were on the move.

We ducked behind a building to make sure we weren't seen and found a fun backdrop.

Back at Alligator Reef, the party is about to begin.

I borrowed the bride and groom from the reception to get one sunset shot, even though we were on the wrong side of the island to get the real sunset. Cheryl and Craig love to kayak, so I figured we'd get one of their most memorable locations into the photos.

Hurry, get to the beach! They're shooting off fireworks!!! What a great surprise ending for a great day.

    We just arrived back in Ontario and raced to our computer in the hope that some pictures might be available. WOW. The photos are breathtaking. What an artist you are! You have created works of art with your camera. Mind you – the bride and groom are good material with which to work! Thank you for sending these out to us so quickly.
