Beach wedding in Key West

Key West is the home to the southernmost point in the continental United States. (The most southern point? That’s right – the place I’m lucky enough to call home – Hawaii, well that is unless you count territories, in which case it would be Rose Atoll in America Samoa). The island is only about 4 miles long and 2 miles wide, and it’s original Spanish name is Cayo Hueso, which means Bone Cay (low lying island). Why ‘bone’ island? Well, it is said that when the Spanish explorers landed there in the 1500s it was a Native American burial ground.
