Melanie and Daniel Say I Do in Key West on Winter Solstice

I absolutely love this love story! Melanie Buffett and Daniel Herbst met while Melanie was on a walk to Audubon  park in New Orleans in 2014. They had a mutual friend and then later asked about each other. A few years later on November 25,  2017 he proposed at Machu Picchu and they were married less than a month later at their Winter Solstice wedding in Key West, Florida! Their friend Ron Shapiro said it best... "The darkest dark day of the year and you two decided to light it up with love!"

The couple had a private courthouse ceremony. Shortly following, Melanie and Daniel went for margaritas for sunset cocktail hour at Margaritaville Resort and Marina! A good tradition when you are Jimmy Buffett's niece, right?!!?!

The reception followed at Melanie's Mother's old town Key West home were she and Esme O'Kelly cooked Lucy Buffett’s famous gumbo!

The details were very unique to this couple. The rings are from favorite jewelry designers Pamela Love and local artist Svea Seredin. The cake topper from the grooms cake was one of my favorites to date because of the story behind it! Daniel's Mother was going through some old items of his and found a ton of legos.  Shortly after hearing this, Melanie asked  to comb through hundreds of legos and found the bride and groom! It made for a very creative piece! Lifelong friends brought guitars to the party and played classic singalong  songs while dancing ensued and sounds of laughter, stories, and champagne bottle pops filled the air.  

Congratulations to this happy, easy going, and super fun couple! Cheers to many years of happiness! #wintersolsticewedding #keywest #maDventures
