Beautiful Simple Wedding on the Beach
We would highly recommend Colleen and Gary for your wedding day! The Key West beach location was beautiful and the ceremony was lovely. We were able to chose the vows and passages that best expressed our love for each other. The photographs Gary took were amazing and captured the beauty of the day perfectly. Colleen made the entire process so easy. She took care of all the details from the cake to the wedding day itself so there was nothing to worry about. A Simple Wedding in Key West was one of the best decisions we made!Sent on 02/04/2020
A Simple Wedding in Key West's reply:You are very welcome. Thank you for choosing us to be a part of your special day. All the best, Colleen and Gary

Amazing work at an affordable price!
Imagine trying to quickly plan a destination wedding event, during a pandemic. Why, because love doesn't wait, and this is what my daughter wanted! She found A Simple Wedding in Key West, and reached out to them to see if they could accommodate her plans. They did! A few calls and emails later all was arranged, their professionalism and prompt responses to all our questions gave us a comfortable feeling that we had chosen well. The event was beautiful, their choice of location proved prefect. The ceremony was relaxed yet elegant. The photography was unobtrusive during the event, and the more formal posed work with the families, bride and groom, etc. was efficiently done, and the results were phenomenal! End result; we could not have chosen better! Great work by a wonderful couple provided my family and our guests with a top shelf experience and lasting memories! I have worked much of my life in the wedding industry with numerous vendors and in this instance I had the distinct pleasure of hiring the Simply the Best Wedding in Key West! Thank you!! Joe Barbeau and family.Sent on 10/01/2020

The Best Decision We Made
Using Colleen and Gary with A Simple Wedding was easily the best decision we made in planning our wedding in Key West. Colleen was helpful through the entire process. She was transparent on what needed to be accomplished and when to have it done, was forthcoming with recommendations for places to see and where to eat on the island, and was very quick to respond with any questions we had. On the actual day of our wedding, Colleen and Gary were extremely respectful and well-organized. They had great ideas for photos and were open to our suggestions. All-in-all, in a week of many decisions, Colleen and Gary were far-and-way the best one we made. Anyone looking at Key West as their place to get married would be wise to speak with them.Sent on 11/25/2019

Colleen made the whole process easy. Any question I had she was prepared with an answer and options. Planning a wedding so far away from our home could have been terribly stressful but not with Colleen in my corner. And the pictures are beautiful!!Sent on 04/19/2020

I can’t say enough good things about Colleen and Gary. We knew we wanted to get married in Key West and they were the first people we called, after speaking to Colleen we didn’t feel the need to contact anyone else. Meeting them on the wedding day put us both completely at ease and we were able to just enjoy the occasion. The ceremony was perfect, we couldn’t have asked for a better experience and Gary’s photos were excellent. Thank you both for such a wonderful day! Paul & LennieSent on 08/31/2019
A Simple Wedding in Key West's reply:Paul and Lennie, we are very happy to hear you felt at ease and enjoyed your day! Thank you for sharing your experience. Take care, Colleen and Gary

Amazing service, even better people.
Colleen and Gary were amazing to work with. They were kind, funny, and completely accommodating. They actually seemed sincerely happy for us. Many people let us know how much they loved the ceremony. They couldn't have been more helpful and we couldn't recommend better people. Can't wait to see the picture Garry took. We already know they will be good.Sent on 04/30/2019

We knew when we wanted to get married and definitely in Key West, but we didn’t have enough information to make an further decisions. Once we found A Simple Wedding in Key West all our questions were answered. Colleen was wonderful at helping us make all our arrangements, from being sure we received our marriage license on time, to arranging a dinner after our ceremony. Everything about our wedding day was perfect, and thanks to Gary’s awesome photography we’ll have beautiful pictures to enjoy for years to come. We highly recommend A Simple Wedding in Key West, they are the best.Sent on 03/25/2019

Dan · Married on 05/20/2018
My wife wanted to get married on a beach, the beaches in Connecticut are well not the most romantic and to have someone do it is very expensive. We wanted to go somewhere neither of us been. So we looked at Key West and found Colleen and Gary. The experience was perfect. We started to communicate about 11 months out. The communication was excellent both by phone and email. Then the unthinkable happened the Keys were hit by a major hurricane. But Key West was spared. The Wedding was still on. Then due to some personal reasons we had to cut our trip short and change the date of the wedding less then 2 weeks before. Not a problem at all Colleen and Gary were available and the wedding back on schedule. She gave us very detailed instructions on how to get to the court house for the license. The only thing we could see as a possible problem was the weather. The morning of our wedding it rained like a tropical storm. Colleen called to reassure us the wedding was on and the weather would be fine. We did have the bar in the hotel we were staying as a back up. “Nope you’ll be fine” that was 10 am by noon the sun was out not a cloud in the sky and were were walking around shopping.
Colleen made us dinner reservations with the place was truly romantic overlooking the water. They were there for us every step of the way. And the price to do all this was half the cost of our airfare. I have recommended them to several people who may have wedding coming up in the next year. I said go to Key West and get Colleen and Gary it your wedding your special day you will not regret it. This was the best trip wedding and Honeymoon ever. Thank you so much for making our special day so much more special.

Couldn't have asked for a more friendly couple to marry us. Colleen performing the ceremony and Gary taking the photos. We only wanted a very simple wedding with no fuss. It was excellent. Couldn't have asked for any more. We will even be going back there again this Christmas to re-live memories, for our first anniversary. Thanks to you both. Barry & Simon.Sent on 07/31/2018

Cheryl · Married on 11/14/2017
I would absolutely recommend Colleen and Gary!!! Planning our wedding was simple and flawless. The photos turned out great! And my flowers were beautiful; they are much prettier than the website makes them look. Colleen recommended restaurants for dinner and even set up our dinner reservations for us! They have this down to a science. We captured the beautiful sunset and had a great time capturing our day on the beautiful Key West beach. Thank you both for making our day special and stress free!

Chelsea · Married on 06/24/2017
Our wedding day was perfect thanks to Colleen and Gary! They really do make the process simple! They recommended everything from the hair/makeup artist, the restaurant, and places to stay in town. ALL were fantastic choices! They are both such lovely people and they were always quick to answer any questions we had regarding the ceremony and Key West. The ceremony was short, sweet, and beautiful on Smather's beach with the sun setting. We cannot wait to see our photos, the atlantic ocean and palm trees made a gorgeous back drop! I highly recommend them if you are looking for a simple yet beautiful wedding in sunny Key West!Sent on 07/08/2017
Sarah · Married on 06/17/2017
Colleen and Gary were fantastic!! We were met at the dock and did some photos on the beach. We then boarded the Floridays yacht where we had a beautiful, small ceremony with us and our parents. We were even more excited when the CD containing all of the photos arrived in the mail a few weeks after our return home and we saw all of the beautiful photos. Colleen and Gary ensured that our wedding was low stress and a great day - everything was perfect!Sent on 04/12/2017

A Simple Wedding in Key West is the perfect name and Colleen and Gary were a perfect fit for us and our Key West Florida wedding. They make the process of everything from getting a wedding license to choosing a venue, vows and flowers easy to complete, remotely. They manage the details no keep things simple so you can enjoy your wedding with little to no stress. They have some main venues for the ceremony which have something for everyone. Colleen is the officiant and Gary is the photographer so all the bases are covered. Our ceremony was small, intimate, beautiful and very memorable - if we had to do it all again we would choose A Simple Wedding in Key West and strongly recommend them.Sent on 03/27/2017

My husband and I got married recently in the most personal and romantic ceremony we could ever have imagined, on a gorgeous beach in in Key West. It was just the two of us, along with Colleen (our officiant) and Gary (our photographer). Colleen and Gary Guancione's business is called A Simple Wedding in Key West – which was exactly what we were looking for when we decided to make the big leap and began to research how we might be able to pull it off. They were wonderful to work with and made the whole process very easy for us. Colleen helped with all the details, like our marriage license, helping us decide where to stay and where to have our celebratory dinner that evening. Gary is a very accomplished photographer and was able to make the beach look like it was our own little deserted spot in paradise, and make us look better than we ever thought possible! We would highly recommend Colleen and Gary Guancione – and A Simple Wedding, Key West – for any couple looking for a simple, special, and very memorable wedding.Sent on 03/12/2017
