I’m so thrilled to share this truly magical wedding that takes place at one of the most magical destinations I know of in the Virgin Islands, Caneel Bay Resort.
It's always a giant compliment when a friend or past client recommends my USVI photography to their friends. That's how I met Liz and John. A mutual friend from New York City suggested that I take the photos for this St. John wedding. It was a true honor to document their amazing wedding day.
We started with photos at the sugar mill ruins for a first look. Liz was beautiful in her dress, which was stunning and the perfect beach wedding gown. John also looked very handsome in his baby blue suit. The contrast of the colors next to the green grass and turquoise waters worked so well to bring together the theme and decor of their special wedding day.
John's father performed the ceremony at Turtle Point. He used to be a minister, so he was the perfect person to officiate their special day. This ceremony was so beautiful and perfectly spoken that it gave me goosebumps. John's dad was a wonderful speaker and made the ceremony so personal and unique to our lovely couple.
Right after the ceremony, we all hopped onto a golf-cart and headed over to the dock to get some photos of the new husband and wife.
After photos, we joined their guests enjoying cocktails on the beach with a steel pan player, which set the tone for the dinner. One of the signature cocktails was a Painkiller. The reception was held at Caneel's Beach Terrace. Roses Too had set up some perfectly chic and tropical centerpieces with beautiful succulents.
It was a beautiful day on St. John from start to finish! Wishing Liz and John a lifetime of happiness!!!!!
