This was my most memorable wedding I’ve ever photographed. I’ve photographed destination weddings before, but none like this. It almost seemed like a scam when I received Ariane’s email about photographing her destination wedding on the island of CocoCay in the Bahamas, but I quickly realized that it wasn’t. She and Aaron had planned a cruise on Royal Caribbean’s Enchantment of the Seas for their guests and on the CocoCay day, they would marry on the island. What an incredible idea. Not only was this a wonderful trip for them, but also for their guests. Clearly, this would be a memorable wedding for me because I’d never been on a cruise, but I got to spend time with their families and friends, getting to know them, learning how they knew each other, hearing stories about growing up together, etc. My husband also got to come on the trip and carry my bags and assist, so it was pretty amazing sharing this experience with him too. Aaron and Ariane worked incredibly hard to make this dream a reality and I’m so impressed with not only how organized they were, but the amazing people they are and the incredible experience they planned for everyone.
Aaron and Ariane – I can’t even begin to express what an honor it was to be your photographer. Thank you SOOO much for trusting me to photograph such an incredible day in your lives. You both are beautiful, amazing people with such a beauty in your relationship with each other that most have a hard time finding. I’m so blessed to have gotten to know you both and your families and friends. It truly was an honor and I’m so grateful! Congratulations on not only your wedding, but your marriage. XOXO PS: Aaron, you still look like JT!
