When Howard relocated to Seattle, Washington, they ran into each other at a Chamber of Commerce mixer.

With Covid-19 and finish lines being put on hold, their relationship grew and their new finish line became a life they wanted to share together as husband and wife.

When they aren't signing up for their next race, they are kayaking, biking, and camping. A very laid back, active couple that truly appreciate the time they have to spend with each other. 

On August 9th of 2020, Howard proposed to Diana in their home and the proposal was filled with lots of emotion. The two decided to plan the wedding on the beautiful island of Key West, Florida. 

The couple shared an emotional First Look and photos around the beautiful island. Afterwards the two exchanged vows oceanside in front of friends and family. Guests enjoyed some wonderful cake and champagne. As the boats sailed by, the couple enjoyed their first moments of being husband and wife.  A delicious dinner reception followed at the historically beautiful First Flight

Congratulations to you and your families!

Zappas Say Yes at Sunset Key https://www.racheleligon.com/blog/2021/4/zappa-key-west-wedding Devon Harmon and Leonardo Zappa met through a mutual friend in Massachusetts. Her family had a family business which was located in the front of a golf course. Lenny had been golfing with a mutual friend when Devon had gone out to drop off some cookies.

It wasn't long after they went out on their first date though the first date is a highly debated topic in their household. Lenny says the first date was at Texas Roadhouse, and she told him at the time it wasn’t a date, but regardless the rest is history! 

When this fun and super laid back couple isn't spending time with their dog and two cats, they are out on the water somewhere in the Florida Keys. 

They were engaged in Key West at the Butterfly Conservatory on October 23, 2019, so it was only natural to come back to the beautiful island to host their wedding. Guests were delivered on a ferry to the exclusive island of Sunset Key right off the coast of Key West, Florida. The couple exchanged vows oceanside and were greeted with cocktails for the sunset hour at the Paradise Cottage. They danced the night away with friends and family! 

What a wonderful wedding - Congratulations to you and your families!

Allison + Alan Say Yes in Key West https://www.racheleligon.com/blog/2021/4/allison-alan-yes-in-key-west Allison Taylor and Alan Lemasters grew up in the same small town and have known each other forever. Alan played sports in the same league as one of her brothers and her father was a coach so they were always at the ball fields together growing up. Alan moved to Louisiana and she moved several different times over the course of the next 20 years. However, they eventually returned to that same small town to be near family. 

Allison moved back around six years ago and would run in to Alan in different spots around town and they would always visit and cut up with each other but things didn't really click until about three years ago.  Alan's buddy came to town and was selling fresh caught gulf shrimp and she went to buy some and they talked her in to hanging around and staying for the fresh shrimp boil. From that day on, things just seemed to finally click and they've been together ever since!  So, Alan always says he "caught" Allison with shrimp for bait! 

They enjoy each others company no matter what they are doing. In warm weather, you can usually find them on the boat or floating in the lake until sunset and then playing cards or games in the evenings or hanging out at the local marina.  They also like to travel and are usually planning where to go next.  They enjoy visiting National Parks and going on epic adventures.

They were engaged on December 4th, 2020, which is actually Allison's birthday - but Alan is adamant the ring was NOT her birthday present!  They had been talking about getting married for a while but Allison was very surprised to get a ring that day. They were on a much need vacation staying with friends home in Cape Coral, Florida.  They returned from brunch and were hanging out by the pool when he popped the question.  

When it was time to tie the knot and become officially husband and wife, they decided on Key West, Florida! 

The two said I do oceanside at Smathers Beach and finished the evening off at the exclusive Hot Tin Roof. 

Congratulations to you and your families!

Groves in Key West https://www.racheleligon.com/blog/2021/4/groves-in-key-west Lauren Andrews and Jeremy Grove met in November of 2017. Lauren was visiting a friend in Charlotte where they went in to a restaurant that Jeremy was managing at the time. Lauren was very thankful for that chance run in because as they say, the rest was history! 

This spontaneous and entrepreneurial couple love traveling, cooking, snowboarding, and going to sporting events. Never a dull moment and they wouldn't have it any other way!  

In March of 2018 they traveled to Laguna Beach, California. While on the trip, Jeremy proposed to Lauren. It was a total surprise for her! Her Maid of Honor Keri was hidden behind  a rock taking pictures and later joined them to celebrate with champagne on the beach. The newly engaged couple continued the remainder of the trip in Cali with Keri and her husband which made for a special and memorable time.

A few years and the birth of an adorable son later, the couple decided to get host their wedding right here in sunny Key West, Florida. Lauren and Jeremy exchanged vows oceanside at the Pier House Resort and Spa where family and friends witnessed these two making it official! It was a fairytale evening with emotional toasts, lots of dancing, and some special touches for the guests! Rodriguez Cigars was on the scene rolling fresh cigars and Key West Cakes brought the magic with the Hudson approved delicious wedding cake. 

Congratulations to you and your families!

Cassie + Shane Say I Yes in Key West, Florida https://www.racheleligon.com/blog/2021/4/finally-the-luckwins Cassandra Wood and Shane Lacuin met during Cassie's senior year of high school where she was working at a tanning salon. It was by chance that Shane came in with his friend who was interested in Cassie's co-worker. Cassie wasn't very shy around Shane, and even asked him why he needed to go to the tanning bed since he already had a natural tan. 

The second they left the shop,  Shane's friend came back in and asked for Cassie's number for him. It wasn't long after that they decided to meet up for some. They continued seeing each other and even went to a few concerts together. Things eventually just faded out until after a couple years Cassie's mother told her to try and get back in touch with Shane.

She left a riddle on his car and did not sign her name to the riddle. He called her the very next day knowing it was her. They made plans to meet up for dinner but ended up for lunch last minute instead. Needless to say that lunch worked out because they have been together for 11 years! 

On August 25th of 2018, this fun-loving boat couple took their boat to Tolchester Marina in Maryland for a beach concert.  During the concert the band paused and put a spotlight on them and said "Cassie, Shane has something to ask you..." I turned around and he was on one knee." 

Of course she said YES and what a more perfect place than Key West to have a wedding!  They brought their fur baby Belle and planned a picture perfect wedding at the gorgeous Audubon House and Gardens. The couple enjoyed some amazing food and desserts followed by a very fun dance party! 

Congratulations to you and your families!

Sabagh Fairytale Wedding in Key West https://www.racheleligon.com/blog/2021/4/fairytale-wedding-key-west Bruna Cruz and Yihad Sabagh were casually introduced to each other in 2014 by a couple of friends. They always said hello to each passing by each other at the gym, but never thought anything of it. Years went by where the two hadn't seen each other until they ran in to each other again at the gym in 2019. 

After a few brief conversations and a bit of chemistry, Yihad and Bruna coordinated a time to meet up so he could see her new cat, Sushi. They both loves cats but from that day on after the meeting, the love for each other started to grow. Sushi ( not Cupid) needs credit because this cat created the puuuurfect match!

Yihad proposed the following year during an ocean sunset sail on his birthday on June 19th, 2020. When it came time to plan a wedding, the soon to Mr & Mrs knew Key West, Florida would be a close to home paradise. The Hemingway House was the top choice for the reception where cats like Bruna's, Sushi, are living the good life. After their ceremony at the gorgeously historic St Mary's Star of the Sea, the new Mr & Mrs Sabagh danced the night away and even had their grandparents on the dance floor!  

Congratulations to this beautiful couple and to their families!

Mr & Mrs Jacobsen Key West Wedding https://www.racheleligon.com/blog/2021/3/jacobsen-key-west-wedding Jessica Affendakes and Colby Jacobsen met through mutual friends after college. These two are so sweet and genuine to each other. When anyone sees these sweethearts in the same room, they understand why they are meant to be! On February 9th of 2020, Colby asked Jessica to be his wife. It was a super chill evening during a cookout at their house. The wedding in Key West was a little different though!! 

Jessica and Colby love being out on the water and having a good time like many true Floridans. When it came time to choose a place for their wedding, Key West was a perfect fit! The new Mr & Mrs exchanged vows oceanside during a wedding ceremony hosted at the exclusive Casa Marina Resort. Simply You, Duarte, Bubble, and Eventfully Yours teamed up to create a stunning wedding and reception design. After exchanging vows, the couple joined friends and family to celebrate where Dj Buggy and Rusty Lemmon lit up the dance floor up with great music! Afterwards, the couple and wedding guests were delivered to Duval Street in style on the local trolley where they continued the celebration. 

May the celebration never end! Congratulations to you and your families!

Brittany + John: Gorgeous Gardens Wedding Key West https://www.racheleligon.com/blog/2021/2/garden-wedding-key-west Brittany Trkulja and Jonathan Sawtelle met in high school where they grew up in Colchester, VT. She remembers the exact day when she laid her eyes on Jon. He was dressed up for a hockey game and he walked by her lunch table full of her girlfriends. She immediately asked them "who is that!?". She proceeded to follow him around the school every day and basically memorize his class schedule. They began "chatting" on AOL instant messenger, and the rest is history! They went to different colleges but made the long distance relationship work. A love so rare these days has truly stood the test of time and miles. 

This easy going couple enjoys doing everything together. When they aren't home having fun with their four-legged "puppers", Leo (3) and Mango (1), they really enjoy traveling and eating their way around this beautiful country.  Jon is a hockey player so they also really enjoy going to pretty much any sporting event. 

They moved to South Florida in December of 2018 and immediately knew they were never moving back to Vermont. In August of 2019, they flew back to Vermont for a friends wedding weekend. Little did Brittany know that Jon was carrying a big surprise in his carry-on the whole time. The day after her friends wedding on August 11th, 2019, Jon and Brittany had plans to go have brunch with their friends Erika and Aedan. They were walking to their house and as soon as we were in front of their very first home together in Vermont, on the sidewalk, hand in hand, Jon yanks her hand as he gets down on one knee and asked the big question. She was in shock and just stood there in dis-belief that this moment was finally happening! 

The two decided to tie the knot in Key West, Florida in the stunning gardens at the Audubon House. Afterwards their closest friends joined them in celebrating on the roof top of First Flight were the high school sweethearts celebrated their lifetime of love. 

Congratulations to you and your families!

Jess + Matt Say I Do and Plan to Sail the World https://www.racheleligon.com/blog/2021/2/jess-matt-say-i-do-key-west Jessica Rodriguez and Matthew Paranac met at work nine years ago while working at Amazon. Matt's friend Marcus told Jessica for months that she had a secret admirer. Marcus gave her a LOT of hints as to who her "secret admirer" may but it took her quite a while to guess who it was. She approached Matt and said, "Hi" but Matt looked upset and responded with, "Is Marcus spreading rumors about me?" She vaguely responded with, "I guess." She felt a little bad for approaching him and walked away. It wasn't until later that she learned that Matt did in fact like her, but was so incredibly nervous to say so! 

Eventually he sought Jessica out throughout the weeks at work and they had small conversations. Matt's sister found her on Facebook and they got to know each other a little more through the social media platform. Jessica explains, "not so romantic, but it didn't prevent the butterflies in my stomach from fluttering."

The two eventually became head over hills for each other and became an official couple. They love to travel and is the reason why they bought a sailboat to sail around the world. They have a Ragdoll cat named Logan and a Yorkshire Terrier dog named Lexi. When they aren't cuddled up with their fur babies, they are working on getting their sailboat ready for the sail around the world! 

On August 8th, 2020, Jessica was taken by surprise when Matt asked her to marry him on their sailboat! It was a natural decision to be on the water for the exchanging of rings so the Sunset Watersports boat in Key West, Florida was a perfect fit! They said yes in Key West dockside and sailed the night away during their reception aboard the Party Cat. 

It was such an honor capturing these memories. Congratulations to you and your families!

Meredith & Chance: Dreamy Casa Marina Wedding in Key West Florida https://www.racheleligon.com/blog/2021/2/meredith-takes-a-chance Meredith Miranda and Chance Miller met on Bumble four years ago after Chance had recently moved from New Orleans to Houston. On their second date, they connected over their mutual love for college football. 

When they aren’t taking care of their fur babies, two Cavalier King Charles Spaniels, Beau (12) and Dash (9) they are preparing for the next chapter in their life. The couple recently purchased a 42 foot sailboat named Compromise that has been in Chance's family for 18 years.  Chance is an amazing sailor and Meredith is having a blast learning and spending time out at the yacht club. 

During Thanksgiving of 2019 during the New Orleans at "The Fly" park overlooking the Mississippi River with our two dogs. His sister was in on the surprise and showed up with champagne to celebrate. They already had dinner plans with his other two siblings so they got to share the news in person and had a wonderful evening celebrating together in New Orleans fashion! 

Though 2020 brought many challenges, they both decided to stick with their plan and say "I DO" in Key West, Florida. The wedding day and island weather could not have been more perfect. Destination Wedding Studios and Duarte Floral teamed up again for a magical wedding design at the well sought after Casa Marina Resort. The couple exchanged vows oceanside and partied the night away in the historic ballroom. Enjoy some these gorgeous photo highlights! 

Congratulations to this beautiful couple!

Katie + Josh Say I Do on the beach in Key West https://www.racheleligon.com/blog/2021/2/beach-wedding-key-west Katherine McCabe and Joshua Lefler met a little over four years ago. This love story is a fun one as Josh was actually on his second date with Katie's best friend when they first met. The best friend had brought him to trivia night. Katie asked about him a week later and her friend said he hadn’t called after trivia, and that she wasn’t into him anymore. So Katie waited another two weeks and asked her about him and she said maybe you will have more luck with him! Katie talked with him and that’s where they got started, with her best friends blessing of course. 

When this adventurous couple has some down time from being a doctor and a dentist, they love being outside, wether it’s camping kayaking, biking, or hiking. They love traveling to as many places as possible. They love their fir animals, a two year old Australian cattle dog mix that acts like a child and an amusing cat named Callie.

Just three days after their fourth year of dating, the couple got engaged near Santa Fe area. They had a beautiful hike up the mountain in the Valles Caldera. When they got to the top of the mountain, Josh got down on one knee and proposed!  

They decided to bring their closest friends and family to Key West, Florida were the couple became husband and wife oceanside at the stunning Fort Zachary Taylor Beach. They masked up and headed to First Flight for the reception in style on the conch tour train. There on the stunning garden rooftop, they celebrated the night away! 

Congratulations to you and your families!

Labriska & Jason Humphrey: A 23 Year Journey of Love https://www.racheleligon.com/blog/2020/10/jaynbriday It was love at first site for Labriska Ligon when she laid eyes on Jason Humphrey. They met at a party among mutual friends. Jason started a conversation with Labriska at the card table. They spent the entire night flirtatiously talking about music and the philosophy of life. This conversation was the first of many between the two of them. Jason took Labriska and the group of friends to an old abandoned home built in the late 1800s. The eerily beautiful home was ravaged by time. The floors and the roof were nearly falling in. Despite the danger, they were restless teens seeking adventure, facing fears, and taking risks. When Labriska hesitated to go into the dark and creepy basement Jason swiftly picked her up into his arms so she would not be left alone. In his arms all of her fears disappeared and she suddenly felt safe. While holding each other for the first time they felt a connection that was much more than just a physical or chemical attraction. It was a serendipitous moment that they both believe is only possible when the stars are aligned just right. This strong connection would leave them both searching for reconnection over the next few months. A few months later when they finally reconnected they became inseparable. They were High school sweethearts even though they went to different high schools. Their love would prevail distance, time, and all odds.

Through the journey of their twenty three year relationship Jason’s friends and family have now become Labriska’s and vice versa. They have two amazing sons ( Chase & Jagen) that complete their circle of love. Labriska and Jason made their strong relationship “official” during one of the craziest years of all time. Even COVID could not keep these two from saying their I Do's in a beautiful Kentucky field of wild flowers under an open air chapel. 

The wedding day was filled with love, laughter, and a very happily ever after...

A Gorgeous Sunset Sail Wedding https://www.racheleligon.com/blog/2020/7/boat-wedding-key-west Our meeting was unplanned and unexpected and through two mutual friends.  I was living in Walnut Creek, California and received a new promotion and job in Key West, Florida.  I had made closure and acceptance with my single life in California and looking forward to my last days with my closest friends.  As single people do at pool parties I found my beverage of choice and enjoyed the sun, fun, a pool side naps.  Slowly people trickled in on the pool side-good-bye-gathering.  My close friend told me there would be a new person visiting and keeping one of our mutual friends company.  I always look forward to meeting new people, so I thought it was pretty cool that would be meeting a new person before moving. 
        Having briefly talked about the new guest, I moved back to my pool side fun and beverage.  The day was a perfect sunny California day; the families were out, oversized-unicorn pool floats, fun and free-fun music, and bar-b-que plans in the works.  Lauren finally showed up and I was happy to give her a cheery “hello” and excited to meet a new person with all the fun around.  Caught completely off guard; Lauren pitched back a cheery “hello”  with as much energy and this uninhibited, no regrets smile.
        I was not ready nor expecting that much energy to be reciprocated, since it had been proven that I tend to be a ball of energy.  But there I was….. completely and utterly shocked by her electric response.  I was hooked…. and found myself overwhelmingly curious about Lauren. 
        We spoke for a few moments, giving each other small talk with how each other was doing and what the fun was about and filling her in on my future travels.  Then she was off to her friend’s side to keep on with her friends.  Leaving me stunned and curious, I made a mental note to check-in with her again before she left, and very-much  wanting to make sure I knew more about Lauren.  My goal before the end of the day was to know more about her before I left for a new world.  She possessed a sense of life to the world that I found difficult to find and felt there was a mutual reaction to the people in our lives.  Thinking to myself, I knew this person was awesome and had a deep projection of love for the people in her life.  I respected that projection of energy and knew Lauren would be an awesome person to have, at bare minimum, as a friend in my life. 
        As soon as the pool fun had started, the pool herd had ended.  My friend and I were left hanging out with the closers.  I looked around and realized I had failed my mental-check and Lauren was not around.  Everyone had moved to the bar-b-que location and I was hoping that she had migrated as well and I had not missed my opportunity to meet this wonderful person.  We moved to the bar-b-que, and I made my peace with most likely not meeting Lauren again.  Knowing I was using blind hope that Lauren had moved to the cooking spot; I scanned the area and did not see her.  “Damn…,” that echoed regretfully through my head…..  Internally, I was really bummed and felt I had a “Craigslist: Missed Connection” moment.  The two bottles of coconut and pineapple juice did not help my internal moodiness but, as paths go, treasure what you receive and people for what they offer. 
        Making my small talk with friends and making sure to get my share of tons of food; life was great and I was life-happy.  Finishing my first plate of food, I realized the seat next to me was empty.  It was symbolic of my move…. on my own again, traveling to something new, more challenges to overcome….. mysteries…..  Rested and awake it was time for a second plate of comfort food in honor of moving away from everything familiar.  As I made my way back to my seat, the empty seat to mine was no longer empty.  Instantaneously, life had converted to a pop culture romance moment.  They type where the chance meeting occurs again; similar to the closing of “Serendipity” just no glove being tossed at me.  “Shit……” echoed nervously reverberated through my head, like some one had just played the power notes of Jimmy Hendrix’s take on the National Anthem through seven speakers, seven feet tall, and seven feet from the strongest echo point in the Grand Canyon.  Seven, Seven, Seven, because somehow I had just used up all my luck on this moment.  The cliche’, “you always meet someone, when you least expect.”  It is the wish that is granted, because it is the humblest and innocent type of wish; that is only granted because of its purity.
        All this taken into account as I completed the ten more steps required to my seat and not look like a fool in completing the task and not scare her off.  That fear and dread of embarrassment we feel when we are nervous about looking our worst with some of the silliest things that involve someone we are hoping to share time.  It’s the moment where you go to speak and your voice turns into a squeaky, high-pitch, no-relation to your soul, and sounds like a you were speaking through a broken kazoo…..  I might as well have been walking a straight line during a sobriety test after binge drinking the barrel of rum I swam…. 
        I survived the journey, barely, and survived delivering to her a second cheery “hello!”  My internal monologue…. “Oh my god, I though you left and I was swallowing horse pills of regret coated in lemon and lime juice!!!  I love your energy, even though we only spoke for a couple minutes, but you seem like that kind of person I really enjoy being with and things are so cool because we are justing going to feed each other like we each have a sight that says “PLEASE DO NOT FEED THIS ANIMAL FOR YOUR OWN SAFETY” but we both have that sign and we are just going to heave a bag of sugar to each other and enable each other and then watch the world around us freak out and completely lost at how to handle the situation!!!!” [End Internal Monologue]…..   She gave her signature uninhibited, no-regret smile; I felt safe and confident to keep this conversation going and enjoyed every moment of conversation with her. 
        We spoke nonstop, focusing on our mutual love for the movie “Armegeddon” and how the theme song just rocks.  I threw my personal free-time fun of kickball in the area and suggested she come out and check it out.  More so attempting to create another opportunity to spend time with her.  At this point, I was hooked.  I knew I was moving, but I needed to know as much as possible about her.  Something just clicked in my head, maybe it was the alcohol, but I was not going give up easy on getting more time with her.  Completely aware I was in deep on rum, I was nervous about coming off as a drunk guy hitting on her.  She politely said no to kickball, and I pitched it a couple more times through our talk like a broken record, hoping she did not understand my intent and would soon understand.  Soon though, it was time for her to go, and as I gathered her things we continued to talk. 
        I knew I was running out of time and I still wasn’t sure if she was being polite about me hitting on her or if she was not understanding me.  Finally, I was out of time and the self-esteem was running low.  Feeling caught between a lack of sobriety and unsure how to not come off as drunk and desperate, I shifted gears.  “Lauren, I want to be direct with you.  I have had a great time with you and would like to get to know you better.”  She had a look somewhere between confused and possibly inferring I’m not understand her.  Dread showered me like gasoline as I stood in a camp fire.  Here it is…. I’m the drunk guy that didn’t get that she was being polite about turning me down….  There weren’t enough seatbelts on this crashing plane and there isn’t enough air in this panic bag I’m ripping breaths through….  Seven seconds of eternal humiliation….. [Strong desires to bury my face deeper in this imaginary pillow in my head].  Another guy noticed my attempt and spoke out, “Laying it on kind of thick; don’t you think???”  That was what was missing from this moment as Lauren took in his words and extended my eternal humiliation another seven seconds; a freight train just hit me while was falling out of this tree of humiliation and hitting every branch on the way down, but just before I was satisfied I was hitting the ground and ending this; a train plows into me from my blind spot….  Lauren looks at me….. [Here it comes……] [I’m looking down the barrel of the gun now] [She is gonna put me out of my misery in one shot] ………..   She begins to speak…..  So this is what the milliseconds of eternal humiliation feel like….  Her: “OOOOOOhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!  [Me:Wait……What…..Huh….] Her: "That is what you meant….”  [Me: …..Am I getting my hopes up that she didn’t understand me???]  Her:  Yes, ok, what did you have in my mind? 
        We exchanged numbers as we spoke in synchronized understanding now, still talking as she walked away and heading through an exit and turned left out of my sight.  A couple long distance “have a good days” and she was around the corner.  Two years later…. and now we are getting married.  Life is either eternal in seconds or a flare of existence; now it is both and I stretch every second in her presence.  Now I learn what it means to be forever with Lauren.

Miss + Royce Say Yes in Key West https://www.racheleligon.com/blog/2020/7/miss-royce-say-yes-in-key-west Missi Paschoal and Royce Brown met through an online dating site and their love of professional football kept them together. Even though Missi is a die hard Patriots fan, Royce tried to convert her to become a Panthers fan. She challenged him to try. He made a bold move and sent flowers to her work that were blue and White (Panthers colors). It was all history from there!

This fun and eccentric couple love to travel. In the Bahamas in July of 2019, the couple were window shopping. Missi tried on a few engagement rings for fun and they left to go eat. What she didn't know is Royce went back for the ring! He proposed later that night in their room before heading to the Florida Keys the next morning.

They made great use of  their time in the Keys, and started visiting wedding venues. The wedding was originally planed fro 4.20.20 but COVID-19 had other plans. After much deliberation and a reschedule to 7.14.20, the couple alongside their blended families said I Do oceanside at the stunning Ocean Resort & Spa. 

The couple decided to keep the rescheduled date because "we wanted to have the experience before the COVID situation got worse and because most could still come. Wanted to be able to share our love and the love of the Keys with our close family and friends." The groom was able to watch the bride's son walk her down the aisle in beautiful Key West, Florida. Afterwards the couple shared their heartfelt vows privately and shortly following they shared their first official family photograph as a family. Love. 

Congratulations to this amazing couple. I am so happy the wedding day of your dreams worked out this year!

Matt & Drew and Lady Too: A Key West Wedding https://www.racheleligon.com/blog/2020/3/hemingway-home-wedding-matt-drew Matt and Drew's story began like many others in 2011 - they met through a dating app (not the one you're thinking of!). Drew saw Matt's profile, thinking he was cute and the 89% match from OKCupid - Drew was the first to message and strike up a conversation.

Fast forward a few weeks of nearly daily messages, and they decided to meet for drinks after work at La Tasca in Old Town, Alexandria. On December 13, 2011, both wearing baby blue sweaters, they meet for those drinks, no food... although Matt still feels burned that Drew didn't order any food for them to share

They stayed for hours, talking, drinking and the connection was apparent.

Another couple of dates ensued - dinner at Medium Rare and ZooLights, the National Christmas Tree - soon after they officially started dating in January 2012.

Matt and Drew had agreed to a friends trip to Ireland in March 2017. As this would be their second time to Ireland, they scheduled four additional days to visit a new place, the UK. Matt was expecting the question to be popped, but expected it in Ireland. So he was surprised during a tour of the Tower of London and Tower Bridge that Drew announced he had a private tour arranged and they needed to grab an Uber.

The surprise was a private helicopter tour over London.

Halfway over London, Drew took out flash cards (Love Actually style, one of Matt's favorite movies). The very last card was a photo of Drew on his knee with the ring box and Lady in front of the U.S. Capitol with a chalkboard sign asking "Will You Marry Daddy?" Matt immediately said "YES!"

A bottle of champagne was waiting for them when they landed, and they celebrated with dinner overlooking St. Paul's Cathedral.

When it was time to plan the wedding they both new Key West was the place! Drew is originally from Nebraska and Matt from Baltimore and they just love the Key West vibe. They were able to bring their three year old English Cream Golden Retriever named Lady, who was also in the wedding. 

Matt and Drew said I do at the gorgeous Fort Zachary Taylor beach where they exchanged their vows near the ocean. The guests were swept away to the historic Hemingway Home for the reception and the couple had a blast celebrating!

Congratulations to you and your families!

A Key West Fairytale Wedding: Stacey + Kelli https://www.racheleligon.com/blog/2020/3/key-west-fairytale-wedding On a football Saturday in October, Kelli was at the Green Door Bar with Koepf family and friends to hear Star Farm, a local favorite band play. After glancing at the bar, he saw an angel in white (Stacey) who just like himself was wearing MSU apparel and in his words “sparkling like a diamond." After remembering someone once told him that he would never go talk to the prettiest girl at the bar, he boldly approached her. But his attempt failed as her “guard dog” sister Christine swept her away. He then approached her twice more that night and the third time the lights were on and the music was off. Kelli said, "you don't have to stop dancing when lights go out." He then proceed to drop it down to the floor slowly, which drew Christine's attention and she recognized Kelli who was business acquaintance. Christine grabs his arm while he is still giving his audition and says "Kelli McCardel?" Kelli responds "yes" and Christine looks at Stacey and grabs her arm too and says "STACEY you have to meet him he is a really nice guy." So guard dog finally allowed Stacey and Kelli to talk agreeing that he “was a good guy”. After a quick five minute presentation on himself, Kelli convinced Stacey to give him her number.....

After two weeks of nightly texting what Kelli refers to as, "pillow talk", Christine left on vacation. Kelli knew that Stacey’s “guard dog” was away and took full advantage of the situation by asking her on a date. He recommended three places and offered to drive. So they ended up at Tavern 109 and drove separate. Upon arrival Kelli was at the end of the bar ordering his Basil Hayden and receives a phone call from Stacey. So Kelli answers the phone hoping she wasn't cancelling and Stacey says "where are you"? Kelli replies "at the end of the bar" while he proceeds to turn around, she says, "so am I". With his confidence and excitement on the rise Kelli turns around and says "Hi". Stacey jumped a little surprised by her good decision on pulling this well dressed man out of a rough bar. Kelli welcomed her with a warm hug and signature Kelli kiss on the cheek before the two grabbed their table in the middle of the room. There they were surrounded by others noticing the intensity between them and as Stacey attempted to absorb Kelli's fire hose of information a note dropped on the table. Kelli turns to speak to the gentleman who dropped it and he was gone. Kelli opened up the note, read it, and proceeded to close the note and place it in his pocket. Kelli attempted to continue on with another topic and Stacey politely asked what the note said. Kelli stated " nothing", and with out hesitation Stacey said with a determined voice, "if you don't tell me what it says I am leaving". So Kelli reached into his pocket, pulled out the note, handed it to her, put his hands up, and hung his head low. Stacey read the note and started laughing out loud. The Note said, " Dude, she is beautiful, talk less, listen more. The voice of experience". The two continued to talk, laugh and Kelli asked many more questions.  From that night on they were pretty much inseparable... and Stacey was in disbelief that she was falling for a 35 yr old man that lived in his parents basement... and Kelli was in disbelief that he had met the girl of his dreams so he better speed up and finish the house remodel.

Kelli and Stacey were headed up north for the 4th of July holiday to hang out with family and friends in Northern Michigan. The night before they left, Kelli asked Stacey to go on a paddle board ride with him when he got home. Due to an appointment she had previously set, she agreed but let him know that they only had 45 minutes. Kelli wasted no time getting out on the water. They headed out of the channel and over to a little sandbar in the middle of Scenic Lake. It was then that Kelli used the advice from the night they met, and asked questions to Stacey about the vacation. As she was busy telling him that they were ready to go, he bent down in water to place the ring in a clam shell found with his foot. With everything fitting together, Kelli let Stacey know there is only one more thing he had to do before they left. He pointed at the water and when she looked down Kelli was on one knee with the clam shell and she said yes to being Mrs McCardel!

Cousins David and Kate invited us down to Key West two years ago. They found out the island was similar to Nashville on the water and they fell in love. The laid back atmosphere, food and great weather brought them back during their search for wedding venues. Consequently, they settled on Key West and thought how great it would be to have their most favorite people join them and celebrate at their intimate wedding.

Key West was picture perfect for these two to say "I do". Congratulations to you and your families!

Cruise Ship Key West Wedding https://www.racheleligon.com/blog/2020/3/cruise-ship-key-west-wedding Carrie Pallesen and Robert McFarland, Jr. went to high school together but always just kind of knew "of" each other. Nearly ten years after graduation, Robert built up the nerve to message Carrie on Facebook and from that day on they never stopped talking.

They love hanging out with family including their "psycho" dog named Gordon. Carrie and Robert also enjoy cooking, hiking, watching sports, and working on their house together. They are an adventurous- goofy couple that enjoys comedies by Adam Sandler or Will Ferrell, and generally try and not take life too seriously. After all, laughter is the key to happiness. 

On October 15th, 2018 (their two year anniversary of dating), Robert surprised Carrie with all of their friends and family at the bar where the two had their FIRST date. He popped the big question right after the Packers and Brewers both won their games that night...smart move on his part. :) 

The soon to be Mr. and Mrs. decided on an adventurous wedding which included and all-inclusive cruise with friends and family. The first stop was in Key West, Florida where the couple said "I do" on a garden rooftop in downtown Key West! The newlyweds enjoyed some margaritas and great food and kept the party going aboard the Norwegian cruise line for days. What a perfect way to tie the knot -congratulations to you and your families!

Stunning Fort Zachary Taylor Beach Wedding https://www.racheleligon.com/blog/2020/3/fort-zachary-taylor-beach-wedding Emma Lowe and Jason Siegel met in 2016 at the University of Cincinnati where Emma was studying abroad for a year. She had a class with Jason's housemate at the time and the two were introduced through him. It was a few months before Emma agreed to go on a date with Jason though, but he eventually won her over and they haven't looked back since! 

They love to run, exercise and hike together; they've done one half marathon and plan to do more in the future. They also both love to read and eat pizza while watching movies. ( She forces him to watch a lot of Nicholas Sparks movies with her!)

They are a very strong couple as they have survived three years of long distance and many months of military training with Jason. 

On Emma's birthday in December of 2018 in Edinburgh, Scotland, the couple were engaged! Just the two of them went to Edinburgh for a few days to celebrate her birthday and New Year's Eve. Jason said he was going to propose at the top of Arthur's Seat but had forgotten to take the ring with him. Instead, he proposed before they went out for a lovely birthday meal. They did get a free glass of champagne out of it at the restaurant so he did well! 

So it was a move across the world for Emma and then a gorgeous Key West wedding on a picture perfect day. The two were married oceanside near the palms in the breeze. Family and friends witnessed the vow exchange and they all headed out on the town to celebrate. 

Congratulations to you and your families!

Intimate Sunset Key Wedding https://www.racheleligon.com/blog/2020/3/intimate-sunset-key-wedding Emma Boyce and Damian Gomez met in Mexico a little over a year ago at a horse show. They had to pay the stable groom to come with them on their first date to translate. However, he didn't need to translate their strong connection because Emma and Damian hit it off immediately. They both share a love for horses; Emma is a rider and writes for a local magazine and the Damian also rides show horses. 

They were engaged last Christmas in London and exchanged official vows on the exclusive island of Sunset Key. The floral decor was beyond amazing and was executed perfectly by the team at Milan Event and Floral - the day could not have been more fun and relaxed. 

The couple enjoyed a sunset sail and had a blast celebrating in an intimate wedding down south here in the Florida Keys.  

Congratulations to you and your families! 

 

Hace poco más de un año, Damian coincidió con Emma en un show de equitación. En su primera cita, Damian tuvo que pagarle a un cuidador de caballos para que hiciera las veces de traductor. Lo que claramente no necesitaba traducirse era la inevitable química entre ellos, ya que se enamoraron inmediatamente.

Emma y Damian comparten la misma pasión por los caballos: ambos son  jockey profesionales y Emma también escribe para una revista de caballos local.

Los novios se comprometieron la pasada Navidad en Londres y finalmente celebraron su amor en la exclusiva isla de Sunset Key. La fabulosa decoración floral fue perfectamente diseñada por Milan Events & Floral y la planificación y organización de la boda estuvo a cargo del team de wedding planners de Say Yes in Key West.

Luego de la ceremonia, la pareja y sus invitados disfrutaron de un paseo en barco alrededor de la isla y disfrutaron de una deliciosa cena en la exclusiva isla de los cayos de Florida.

Lani and Billy: Key West Boat Wedding https://www.racheleligon.com/blog/2020/2/campbell-key-west-boat-wedding Lani Carwin is a realtor and Billy Campbell owns a mortgage company. It was back in 2012 when they meet through a mutual client. The two instantly hit it off but it wasn't until a little later that they officially became a dynamic duo! 

Lani, Billy , and Lexi, Lani's nine year old daughter love being on the water! They are very active and love water sports, traveling, and skiing. He surprised her during family pictures where Lexi was in on it the whole time! She's good at keeping secrets. 

When it came time to decide where to get married, being on the water was their favorite option for sure. The couple decided to say I DO on the ocean with friends and family to witness aboard one of the very last boats built in Key West! The stunning Argo Navis boat cruises the Key Waters topping about 11 knots and is one gorgeous vessel!  
 
The blue skies and the sound of the waves crashing made for a picture perfect wedding day. Guests enjoyed the music of Chris Thomas and yummy appetizers provided by the fantastic boat crew. What a fun evening celebrating an amazing couple! 

Congratulations. I am so happy for you and your families!

Mary Kate + Aric Say Yes in Key West! https://www.racheleligon.com/blog/2020/2/valliere-key-west-wedding Like many great love stories, Mary Kate and Aric met at a bar! It was a mutual friend’s birthday and were both there to celebrate at the Starbar in Austin, Texas.

They love spending time with their dog, Benny, a very large golden retriever. When they aren't with Benny, they enjoy trying new restaurants and sipping cocktails on a nice patio. 

While on vacation in Belize in November of 2018, they two were engaged!

This super fun and outgoing couple decided on a destination wedding here in beautiful Key West, Florida. The earlier part of the wedding day brought some wind but the sun came through the clouds as the bride walked down the aisle. Mary Kate and Aric said I do during a private ceremony on the beach at the stunning Southernmost Beach ResortGuests enjoyed cocktail hour and sunset followed by a lovely lawn reception which was also overlooking the ocean. The florals and decor were simply gorgeous! The couple shared their first dance while looking at the ocean and proceeded to dance the night away with family and friends! They also enjoyed some lovely Benny cocktails in honor of their doggy! 

Congratulations to you and your families!

Key West Beach Wedding at Fort Zachary https://www.racheleligon.com/blog/2020/2/suzor-key-west-beach-wedding Sara Heathcote and Sid Suzor originally met through a mutual friend before a concert. Then met again at a friends 50th birthday party. They spent most of the party in the corner talking and decided to take a drive together where she asked what he wanted for the future. By the end of the drive it was clear they were totally in to each other. It was then that they had their first kiss. 

On December 25th in 2018, Sid got Sara virtual headsets as a Christmas gift. As she was playing it in the chair, he knelt down in front of her with an engagement ring. He stayed there for about five minutes and waited for her anxiously to finish. She took of her headset, collected her vision, and finally saw him and the ring. She was startled that he was there but took a deep breath and of course said YES!  

They enjoy being together at home drinking Irish whiskey, going to movies and bowling. They also love heading downtown St. Augustine to walk St George Street, dining out, and taking vacations. It was no surprise the two decided on a vacation wedding weekend! 

Sara and Sid both agreed Key West was the best place to get married and Key West did not disappoint. The couple said "I DO" oceanside at the gorgeous Fort Zachary Taylor Beach in front of their friends and family. After the ceremony , the couple and guests were escorted in true Key West fashion on the Conch tour train to the the Bagatelle on the famous Duval Street. The guests were welcomed with hangover kits and a wonderfully created Alice in Wonderland theme! Guests enjoyed some stellar food and music by the top notch Rusty Lemmon. Everyone listened to music under the stars on the roof top cafe and enjoyed every moment of the celebration!

Congratulations to you and your families!

Barnes Key West Conch Wedding https://www.racheleligon.com/blog/2020/2/key-west-conch-wedding Elisabeth Rockteschel and Oliver Barnes are Key West Conchs who went to high school together. Their very first date was prom and eventually became high school sweethearts.

In May of 2018 they graduated college and bought a house together. In July of the same year they were engaged to be married! 

Elisabeth and Oliver have two mini dachshunds that are spoiled enough to be their children. The couple has always loved to travel and being at the beach together. So it was an easy decision to get married in their laid back beach town of Key West. 

The wedding day was simply stunning. The gorgeous white orchid floral arrangements, bouquets, and table settings where grown for the wedding. All were designed by the Mother of the bride and family. No attention to detail was spared for this gorgeous wedding day. The couple opted for a First Look inside the fort for lovely photos and the ceremony directly followed at the point of Fort Zachary Taylor. Captain Finbar officiated and the conch shell was blow at the end. Truly a conch wedding at it's finest! 

The Key West sunset did not disappoint. Immediately following the ceremony, the guests were delivered in Key West fashion on the Conch Tour Train to the fort where they enjoyed cocktail hour and listened to live music by the famous Rusty Lemmon.

The decor of the fort was stunning and guests enjoyed the night away with wonderful food, dancing, and of course cake! 

Congratulations to you and your families!

Marion + Bertho Key West Wedding https://www.racheleligon.com/blog/2019/12/marion-bertho-key-west-wedding Marion Gabou and Bertho Dessalines met in Louisville, Kentucky! Marion is from France and came to Louisville to participate in a semester abroad.  Bertho was born and raised in Haiti and ended up living in Louisville for work and studies. They met each other through a mutual acquaintance and only spoke for ten minutes. The next day, Marion was asking for his number to the mutual acquaintance and Bertho was doing the exact same! They started texting and two days later were on their first date. From that day on they knew they had something special and became a couple. 

They love road trips, skydiving, and cooking together. " He is the chef and I assist him." They also love listening to Kompa (Haitian music) and going to Kompa music concerts! 

Bertho does not like surprises but LOVES to surprise Marion. They were engaged in a beautiful restaurant, Fontainbleau in Miami, Florida. He had everything prepared and everyone knew except her. He even planned to give his phone to a waiter so he could record everything. He prepared this for two days without her knowing. When he got on his knee and asked her to marry him she said "my heart stopped". Luckily she caught her breath and SAID YES! 

They both really enjoy traveling and the tropics so Key West was the perfect destination to say I DO! Their tropical winter wedding was magical. The couple exchanged wedding vows oceanside at the stunning Pier House in front of friends and family. The wedding colors were a gorgeous mix of blue, dark pink and dark red. After the ceremony the guests enjoyed some great food and an epic Key West sunset. 

The guests along with bride and groom danced the night away! 

Congratulations to you and your families!

Katie + Jeremiah: Beautiful Ocean Key Resort Wedding in Key West https://www.racheleligon.com/blog/2019/12/brewer-ocean-key-wedding Katherine Guba and Jeremiah Brewer met at the gym in 2016.  Jeremiah was actually working at the gym when Katherine came in to workout. Each time they encountered each other they had more intriguing conversations and ultimately became great friends. Jeremiah got the courage to ask her on a date and they have been together ever since! 

Their date was at a Mexican place called Besito and Jeremiah hated it. Good thing the company was better than the food because a couple of years later Jeremiah asked Katherine to be his wife!  The proposal was on a pier during sunset in Tampa. He took her to dinner one night and had everything preordered (favorite drinks and pie) then took me out to the pier and we watched sunset then he proposed! She kind of knew something was off because everything was already preordered but it was definite yes!

Key West was their first vacation together and wanted to invite their friends and family in the same place at one time in such a magical place. The wedding day was picture perfect with not a cloud in the sky. The wedding decor included gorgeous blush pinks, white, gold, and a darker green. Stunning! The couple were married by the grooms father oceanside on the pier at the stunning Ocean Key Resort. Guests were treated to some top notch views and amazing food while celebrating a gorgeous couple. 

Congratulations to you and your families!
