The guest experience was meticulously planned, ensuring everyone felt special. Upon arrival, guests enjoyed pre-ceremony cocktails and delectable appetizers. Key, in his impeccably tailored tuxedo, stood with love and anticipation, while Kaitlin, a vision of grace in her dreamlike gown, glided down the aisle.

Guests mingled, sipping expertly crafted cocktails as a string trio played songs chosen by the bride, including favorites by Taylor Swift. The event featured a wooden oyster boat bar, filled with ice and condiments. Bespoke custom monograms adorned the invitations and decor, adding a personal and sophisticated touch. The crest featured their beloved cat, Mew, and a fishing boat to reflect Key’s passion.

Dining tables, draped in luxurious linens and set with exquisite china, stood as oases of refinement. Each detail, from the intricate floral arrangements to the soft candlelight, spoke to the meticulous planning and heartfelt care that went into making this day unforgettable.

After a savory dining experience, guests enjoyed a photo booth and left messages via a rotary phone audio guest book. Dancing took place on an outdoor dance floor beneath bistro lights, with a live band providing phenomenal entertainment. The night concluded with Key and Kaitlin sharing an intimate moonlit dance.
