Live Wedding Blog: Amy & Eric - Welcome to Key West!

** Friday, June 4, 2010 is the wedding of Amy and Eric at the Southernmost on the Beach in Key West. Since I (Candy) could not get away for a few days, I sent my mother Juliette (who handles the florals, decor, and other fancy-shmancy items) for most of my weddings and my cousin Jacquline to assist her. I asked Leenie (as my family calls her) to write the Live Wedding Blog for me while she was there. Photos will be added soon!

We landed in Key West in just after 6:00 in the evening. Upon first glance, this place is BEAUTIFUL! The island is so tiny that the main road is only a mile long, so everything is basically beachside-- including the airport. My aunt and I are staying at Author’s Key West Guesthouse. We’re so close to the airport and only six blocks from downtown where all the entertainment, bars and historically the “best place to see the sunset in Florida” Mallory Square is! 

Author's is really nice too. Kind of quaint, but once you walk inside the rooms are really ‘homey’ and nice. They set breakfast up outside on the patio under trees. It’s cute…for a bed and breakfast.

After freshening up, we went down to Duval street, the main tourist street in the area, and Mallory Square and the place was awesome! There were so many people just having a good time walking around and there were live bars, music, shops and street performers everywhere. It was so much fun and there was so much to do. The best part was that it was all along the water, so it had such a nice view and the breeze felt amazing! We went to the Hard Rock CafĂ© for dinner, which, as always, was amazing (minus the extra five pounds I now have on my butt) and then just walked around and checked out the local shops. It was fun. I got a hat so I’m happy now. :P

Tomorrow starts the setting up process for the wedding... I'm excited and nervous. I don't know how much work there will be. I don't know what I'm going to have to do. I do know, though, I'm going to try my best! I mean, seriously, I got a free trip to Key West to help my aunt and cousin out with setting up a wedding for a few hours. I wouldn't mind doing this again!
