Today, the wedding festivities officially begin! For the last week I’ve been busy running all around South Florida getting everything ready for our Key West nuptials. My fiance, Jarrod, flew into Miami early this Thursday morning to pack up all the wedding “stuff” and get it down the Keys and celebrate Valentine’s Day in paradise.
We posted photos on Instagram using the hashtag #JarrodBettina. We plan to crowd source the wedding and ask all our guests to post pictures throughout the weekend. They’ll be collected on our wedding Facebook page.
Among the packed items was a case of Francis Ford Coppola’s Sofia, our favorite sparkling wine. I was beyond happy to have several bottles of this bubbly, which brings back many fond memories Jarrod and I have shared over the last three years. The pretty in pink bottles took over an entire section of our rented home’s large refrigerator. They served as a perfect reminder that Jarrod and I would have major hosting duties this week, as our two bedroom spacious rented home, “Lennon’s Lodge,” will serve as wedding headquarters for family and friends throughout the week.
We had headed down to Key West with the best man and his wife. The four of us decided to kick-off the festivities and celebrate Valentine’s Day and wait for the rest of our family and friends.
