I met Molly and her family while photographing her older sister Brenna’s wedding in Albuquerque last summer. When Molly asked if I might want to photograph her wedding too—and in Key Largo no less—the answer was a resounding yes! When Zach and I arrived in the Keys on the evening of the rehearsal dinner, it was like meeting up with old friends!
Molly and Tom met several years ago when Molly was working as an au pair in Germany. As Tom is originally from the UK, the guest list included numerous friends and family from overseas (including the family Molly was working for when the couple met). As so many guests would be buying plane tickets for the wedding anyway, the couple decided to choose a fun destination and turn the whole affair into a week long vacation!
After a beautiful ceremony at St. Justin’s Catholic Church, we went on a quick photo adventure to the Key Largo Hilton, and then back to Dream Bay Resort for a fun and surprise-filled reception. A few favorite moments: Molly’s surprise skirt, the wedding party’s quick swim (in full wedding attire), the bride and groom’s paddle boat adventure, and, of course, the ice cream food fight.
Thanks again to the Gormley and Boxall families and all of the vendors involved. We truly had a blast!
