DESTINATION

Photographing this colorful spring wedding in 30A Florida was a highlight of the season for me. The couple chose vibrant, lush florals, which were beautifully done by Brian and the Myrtie Blue team. Everything was exquisitely planned and executed by Avis and her team at Peach and Pearl Events. A clear top tent allowed light to filter through onto the florals and illuminate the ceremony and reception space in the most delicate way.

Three postponements. Two venues across two countries. One epic wedding weekend that finally came together.

After multiple reschedules and the tumultuous year of uncertainty, Maria and Levi finally got their dream wedding, though it looked much different than what they imagined when they originally got engaged more than two years prior. And this epic destination wedding weekend came together in only four months’ time.

Due to covid, Maria + Levi had been forced to postpone their date three times, and after the third date fell through with their original venue, the couple decided to change everything and move their wedding to the first place they ever vacationed together, Harbour Island Bahamas.

Sharing some photos from my new favorite destination, Harbour Island. This beautiful hideaway is a small island nestled in the Bahamas, best known for its pink sand beaches and turquoise waters. While vacationing there this spring I explored all the beauty Harbour Island has to offer, and of course photographed it to share with you. The islanders are some of the friendliest people I’ve ever encountered on vacation, the beaches are even more beautiful than the pictures, and it’s the perfect getaway if you’re a couple planning a destination wedding.

I’m thrilled to share this Alys Beach engagement session with you. Monica and Ryan are such a fun couple, and the two are recently engaged and planning a destination wedding for next year! In leu of champagne they opted to bring a bottle Jamison along – I love when couples include elements unique to them. We had a great time exploring Alys Beach together while documenting this extra special chapter. Congratulations, you two!

This intimate San Diego, California beachside wedding got me from “hello” with all of its tropical and bohemian touches. I loved every detail, from the perfectly pink Jimmy Choos, to the clean and modern touches of the stationery and wedding cake. These touches extended even to the welcome boxes for out-of-town guests, which included some […]
