Florida Keys Weddings

For the 20 or so years before we moved to Las Vegas, we lived in the Florida Keys. We operated our first private concierge service there, helping people with hotel and guest house accommodations, restaurant recommendations, and dive and fishing charters. Since we owned a boat and Paul was a licensed captain, we thought we would offer to marry a few especially romatic couples. Because being a captain was not sufficient to officiate marriages, Paul became a notary.

Our first ceremony took place on a balcony at the Pier House in Key West. Ironically, we only married one couple on our boat. The rest were mostly intimate sunset ceremonies on beaches mostly in Marathon or Key West. As a service to our married couples, we photographed the ceremonies and created a web page for each couple to share with their friends and families.

In creating this new web site, we have tried to honor the couples we had the honor of marrying by republishing their photos and their ceremony information here. While we have received a few requests over the years to unpublish their announcements because the couples had gone their separate ways, we hope that those who remain here are still happily married and fondly remember the day they exchanged their vows - as we do of our vows 47 years ago.
