There are no strangers here, only friends you haven't met.Sent on 06/06/2015
My wife and I hired Dan To plan, photograph and officiate our Key West wedding. What we learned along the way is that Dan doesn't know how to fail.
Dan did everything humanly possible to make sure our special day was the best that it could be, a day we'll remember forever.
Dan's energy to provide us with all we could want, and more, is contagious. His drive to make your day a special one shines through not only in his photography, but in the way he pulls you into his life. We met Dan as complete strangers and left with a new family member.
All of his recommendations were top shelf and his photos are stunning. Memories of our wedding day will be with us forever, thanks to Dan.
If you're looking for a perfect partner for your Key West event, then look no further than Dan Leatherman and Key West Casual Weddings.

Dan is very much the professional. From the first time we contacted him, to the finish of our ceremony he was helpful. Dan was always prompt with replies to our questions. We are in our late 50's and we wanted a simple ceremony, just us with Dan officiating. We were going to say some of our own vows, but when Dan finished there was nothing left to say. The wedding vows were extremely meaningful including everything a lasting marriage involves.Sent on 03/28/2019
The location was amazingly beautiful with so many friendly people. We had never experienced such a relaxing atmosphere. Dan did a fantastic and professional job. The second we met him we were relaxed as if meeting an old friend at the beach. He is a personable and wonderful person. We could tell he adores people and truly loves his job. It was a five stars across the board wedding.
Thanks Dan for the perfect start to our lives together!

Perfect organization paired with a great photographer!
Dan is just perfect! We are so thankful. The photos are great! Dan supported us with all the paperwork (We are from Austria, and our English isn't the best ;-). He answered every mail very quickly. The reservation for dinner and hair and makeup - everything ran smoothly! We can recommend Dan to 100%!Sent on 02/20/2019

We cannot say enough wonderful things about Dan. He went out of his way to make sure our day was special. Prior to arriving, Dan provided information on flowers, hair, make-up details and hotel accommodations. The photographs from our wedding day were absolutely beautiful.
Our ceremony was just what anyone would want. We wanted to be married on the beach and Dan chose the perfect location overlooking the ocean. Dan was very professional, friendly, and easy to work with. We can not say enough wonderful things about him. He truly loves what he does and you can see that the minute you meet him.
If you are planning on getting married in Key West, you certainly will not go wrong with Dan Leatherman.

Dan / Key West Casual Weddings provided a wonderful beach wedding ceremony for us. Dan was fantastic to work with and made our wedding so very special! He is a very talented photographer. Dan took hundreds of photos and we loved having so many poses to choose from. He was great fun -- we loved his humor! At the end of our time on the beach, he recommended a fabulous restaurant, the Commodore, and made dinner reservations for us. Beautiful restaurant with fabulous steak and lobster and great wines. We loved Dan and would highly recommend him!!Sent on 09/25/2018

Dan was simply wonderful, handled everything with ease for us, made us feel comfortable even after Hurricane Irma!Dan helped us every step that he could from gorgeous flowers, to the best make up and hair stylist (huge shout out to Elena Southcott - she simply was the best!), to officiant the ceremony, and of course the most incredible photography. Dan made us feel comfortable the first moment he said hi! He shared in every moment with us from the ceremony through all the pictures he took. He laughed with us, he provided great ideas for photos, and he engaged us to give him ideas too! He is simply the top notch professional that every couple wants for their special wedding day. We especially loved that he made every moment special through his incredible photos and his extraordinary personality. He made us feel like we were family. We are incredibly grateful for Dan and Elena for making our special day just that incredibly special! We had the unique pleasure of following Hurricane Irma and wondering what Key West would be like. We were not only honored to be married on Smathers beach in Key West but it was even more beautiful after the Hurricane. We wish we could express how much we truly feel about our experience with Dan even more beyond a great big THANK YOU! Dan, truly we loved every moment, and were are grateful to you for all you did for us! We would recommend and certainly hope to see you in the future. The warmest regards and all of our gratitude - Arlene & Russ CoxSent on 10/31/2017

Dan was easy to work with, flexible, and super friendly. He made our special day exactly what we had hoped for! The flowers he ordered for us were delivered to our hotel, he was right on time for our ceremony, and he spent quality time with us for pictures. His reading during our ceremony was meaningful and fit right in with the tone of our wedding. We love the pictures he took and he captured us so well. I would enthusiastically recommend Key West Casual Weddings.Sent on 07/18/2017

We were very pleased with Key West Casual Weddings! Our short visit to the keys via cruise was worry free with Dan as our Wedding Captain! He had the best location, photo poses, vows, EVERYTHING! All we had to do was show up in love. Our photos are fantastic and came back to us within a week of our wedding. AMAZING. I cannot brag enough about our experience with KWCW and Dan.Sent on 05/22/2017

All worked perfect. The only thing was the wheather, but Dan found another way. So all was flexible and calm with no panic. The photos are brilliant and really really perfect. We will think about that day for the rest of our life.

Dan was great. Had our wedding set up for 4:30 p.m. Changed our minds and wanted to do it at 10:30 a.m. so we could head back to Michigan. Called Dan and he switched it for us right away. No Hassle what so ever. Dan was great to work with and a pleasure to meet. The service he performed was great, just what we hoped for. We recommend Dan highly.Sent on 04/04/2017

We had the simple, and intimate , dream, beach wedding. The rest of the world should be envious at how unstressful, beautiful, and simple a wedding can be.
We had our dream wedding, with pictures that were heavenly.
Thank you Dan Leatherman for making this happen. I highly recommend him to anyone.

I highly recommend Dan with Key West Casual Weddings as your officiant for your wedding. The ceremony was short but sweet, which was exactly what we wanted. He helped us form a ceremony plan and pick the perfect location for the ceremony to take place (we were married at West Martello Tower). Without his advice and input the ceremony wouldn't have gone as smoothly. Thank you Dan!Sent on 12/31/2016

Our small, private beach wedding with Dan was perfect! He is a very nice and helpful man, and he made planning our wedding so easy. The ceremony was beautiful and intimate and we loved our pictures. He was also sensitive to our small budget, which was very much appreciated! Our wedding was everything we hoped it would be. I whole-heartedly recommend Key West Casual Weddings.Sent on 12/09/2016

Being a non-US citizen couple that had intended to get married rather casually in Key West, FL we came across Dan's website and got in touch via email to make a reservation and necessary arrangements. Upon our arrival on our special day we spent a truly relaxing sunset time at Smathers Beach with Dan. Dan turned out to have a friendly laid-back amusing personality, yet very professional which made our day memorable and truly no stress whatsoever. The photos came out just fantastic! Despite some minor technical issues with his newly redesigned client gallery that Dan managed to sort out briskly for us we can recommend him highly as a perfect companion for an informal casual style wedding with No. 1 photography.Sent on 11/12/2016

We could not be happier! If you're considering Key West for your ceremony, take the plunge and trust that Dan at Key West Casual Weddings can make your dream come true!Sent on 08/01/2016
