Ya Mon… what an incredible weekend! Being a part of Lauren and John’s destination wedding in Jamaica was amazing! How incredible to see 42 of Lauren and John’s closest family and friends come together to celebrate with them in this beautiful, tropical environment thousands of miles away from their homes! Since this is technically the rainy season for Jamaica, Lauren and John’s guests pretty much had the resort to themselves! (and for the few that were not with Lauren and John’s party- they quickly jumped in to help Lauren and John celebrate this exciting time of their lives!) The Jamaican hospitality was so welcoming and FUN!
Even with the periods of liquid sunshine brought by Tropical Storm Alex, this group did not miss a beat! The wedding was a little delayed due to Alex… but considering we were going with the flow of Jamaican time… most would say it started right on time!
Destination weddings are so much fun because it is not just a few hours of celebration- it is a few days!!! For Lauren and John, most of their family and friends made the trip for the entire week before their Saturday wedding. This gave them lots of time to relax by the pool… or play some competitive games of pool volleyball or basketball, play some golf, go parasailing… enjoy Jamaica together as a new family! And what a fun new family they have!
We felt right at home with this group and couldn’t have asked for a better couple to share this experience with! Destination weddings are definitely something that we would like to do a lot of!!! We actually started our photography business thinking a little extra money could help us see the world and travel as we have always dreamed of doing! But how amazing to actually join our two loves of photography and traveling! Exploring the world with our brides and grooms is an amazing blend of our dreams and we can’t wait for the next opportunity to do it again!
Thank you so much to Lauren and John… and their amazing family and friends for making our trip to Jamaica so memorable! Lauren and John- you two are amazingly beautiful people (inside and out!) Seeing your smiles and your laughter makes our hearts smile!
As you may remember, Lauren and John were the winners of our Engagement Story Blog Contest. Everyone fell in love with their simple, but incredibly sweet engagement story! Simple, yet incredibly sweet is the perfect description of Lauren and John… and we wish them a simply sweet life together as a married couple!
