When you think elopement, what comes to mind? Traveling to the western United States to check out Zion or Yosemite? Going across the ocean to Ireland or Italy to run through endless fields and exceptional food?

GUESS WHAT?! We are overlooking a chain of islands right here in the United States where you can escape to an adventurous elopement filled with fun, good food, sunny weather and silky sand – the Florida Keys. The Keys are a string of 1,700 islands (🤯) that span over 120 miles off the southern tip of Florida in the Atlantic Ocean. These islands are known for their watersports, food, and history. Out of these many islands there is so much to explore and be done.
