    Best Day of Our Lives

    Dreams really do come true! Words fall short trying to describe how perfect our wedding day was at the Hemingway house, but we can say with heartfelt certainty that was the best day of our lives (so far!) This wouldn’t have been possible without the incredible work of Vicky Furman and her team. She answered every question with such enthusiasm and thoughtful guidance, and truly made our wedding go off without a hitch. You can trust Vicky with the smallest to the biggest details, and she will handle everything with professional confidence and incredible customer service skills. Each and every suggestion & recommendation she made ended up working out perfectly and made our day a comfortable, enjoyable and special experience for us and our guests. If we could turn back time, we would do it all over again and wouldn’t change a single thing. Thank you Vicky and team for making our dreams a reality, and giving us the most beautiful start to our forever.

    Wedding Perfection

    Sheer perfection. If I had to describe our wedding using only two words those would be it. My husband and Iive in Austin, TX so having our destination wedding in Key West at the Hemingway Home was of course very fun to plan but being so far away from
    home there was a lot of uncertainty. Heck, we didn’t even see the venue in person until the wedding rehearsal day! But let me tell you - I wouldn’t have done anything differently. I put my full trust into Vicky, our month of coordinator, and the rest of our vendors (Great Events Catering, KissMe Entertainment, Key West Cakes) and they created the most magical night of our lives. They say perfection doesn’t exist, but I can assure you it does, because that’s exactly what my husband & I experienced on 04/23/22. Thank you Vicky for your professionalism, kindness, and knowledge of the venue & island. We are forever grateful. ♥️

    Paradise Wedding in Key West

    Great wedding experience from start to finish. The wedding coordinators at the Hemingway Home (Jen, Vicky and Alex) were hardworking and knowledgeable about everything...literally everything from weather patterns in the season to vendors on the island with their working relationships. They were detailed oriented and quick response whether email, text or phone call. They sent me a recap of all the vendors expected times and placement for the reception on the property. The property is gorgeous and well maintained. They were very accommodating to my shrinking wedding size due to covid-19 and last minute changes which included moving my ceremony location to the Hemingway Home. The natural lighting on property was perfect for January. Ceremony was at 5:30 pm had plenty of natural lighting and privacy on site for the wedding ceremony. No need to go elsewhere for the ceremony. They coordinated well amongst the many vendors involved and last minute changes. Definitely recommend. Only suggestion for the venue is to be able to extend the venue hours to earlier (before 5:30 pm) and later (midnight) currently not an option.

This is the most beautiful location in Key West to get married. They have a beautiful garden for ceremonies and poolside cocktails veranda and a tropical paradise lawn for the reception. It is lush with tropical flowers, rich with history and home to the cutest cats. Guests always say how they love that they use different parts of this historical home. They even offer tours. I have DJ'ed over 50 weddings here and every one of them was perfect. Vicki, Anna and the whole amazing team, make the magic happen. Professional and attentive, you come to get married and leave with new friends. I give them 6 stars out of 5.

Senses at Play Photography Senses at Play Photography Wedding Photographers

The Ernest Hemingway Home is THE most unique location within Key West to have a wedding celebration. The architecture, history, glamour of years gone by can not be matched. As a photographer who has photographed many events within this beautifully walled garden property, it offers so much to a couple! You can be as creative as you wish - A recent first dance I photographed - the couple incorporated 5 decades of music into their song and then switched up the dance moves. Other brides have provided bound books to their guests - had cigars, typewriters, and lighting incorporated, and one even wore period bridal wear. The grounds are kept immaculately and the staff are friendly. Anna and Vickey are two of the best cooridinators on the island so you will be in great hands!
