Alex + Allyson
Alex played basketball in college so talking to her younger sister’s basketball coach came naturally. Alex and Allyson started as friends but slowly realized that their connection was more than just that. Key West has been a special place for them throughout their relationship. During the time that they were first falling in love, Alex was in Key West with her family. She couldn’t help but think about how much Allyson would love it there. Sure enough, a couple years later, Alex and Allyson made their first trip to Key West together. Alex was right, Allyson also fell in love with walking down Duval Street, drinking Cuban coffee, and smoking cigars. When they got engaged, Key West was the obvious choice for their intimate wedding.
On the morning of their wedding, they spent the morning at the pool with their friends and family. Then they got ready in separate condos before heading to Smathers Beach for their ceremony. They each started on opposite sides of the beach and met in the middle. They each read their vows to each other before sealing their marriage with a kiss. They hired a guitarist to play their first dance song, and then they danced with their dads.
For dinner, they made a reservation on the outside deck of Rooftop Cafe. There, they enjoyed delicious food and drinks, and then some of their guests stood and gave a toast to the newlyweds. It was incredible to see Alex and Allyson surrounded by so much love and support. They ended the evening by bar hopping on Duval Street.
