I have been dying to post this wedding! In the middle of November we had the pleasure of documenting Jess and Jamaal’s Key West wedding. When we first met Jess and Jamaal for dinner one night I knew not only this wedding would be insane but we would have friends for life now. They definitely did not disappoint. I have to give a huge shout out to Holly Harrington Stern from Harrington Events who made this even possible. Holly and I go way back to her wedding! She is a fantastic event planner and everything was perfect. We were able to join the group while they cruised out in the Florida sunshine. Parasailing, Jet Skis, water activities, you name it. Jess, Jamaal and their family really welcomed us with open arms. Later that evening there was a fabulous welcome dinner that took place right at sunset. You can’t beat the views.
Next stop was wedding day. Jess was absolutely gorgeous . Her laugh is infectious and her family are so wonderful to be around. I was able to hang with the girls all day while Carly got to spend some time with Jamaal. The details were gorgeous at this wedding. The ceremony overlooked the water and the sounds of the steel drum set the tone.
Jess and Jamaal promised us a crazy party and they definitely succeeded. The dance floor was packed all night. There was a photo booth with 5 ft cutouts of the couple. At one point they ended up on the dance floor along with cut outs of their faces. It was hilarious. We ended the night with the Junkanoo’s escorting the wedding to their conch train pub crawl down Duval street. it was absolutely a weekend we will never forget. thank you so much for letting us be apart of your day!
