Melissa & Sean’s Wedding

Wow… We have been to so many AWESOME places in the last 2 months! We feel so incredibly blessed to have clients that are so amazing and generous that they bring us along to photograph them all over the world. Melissa and Sean’s gorgeous wedding in St. Thomas in the Virgin Islands was something Dave and I have been looking forward to for a very long time! Sean and Melissa’s adorable little 2 year old, Lauren was a reason why I was excited πŸ™‚ You can check out her adorable her baby photos a while back, as well as her toddler shoot at High Park. Baby Lauren was also the model I used for the 2010 Baby and Toddler Guide. Isn’t she adorable… you can see why they chose her for the cover!

When we were asked to do another gorgeous Caribbean wedding in freezing February we were thrilled, and we were especially happy to have such a gorgeous couple to photograph.

Melissa is actually a dear friend of my sister Tricia so it was really nice to have a chance to photograph Melissa and her family on such an important day!

We had been having such a great time at sea with everyone but everyone was so excited to disembark and enjoy their fabulous wedding on the white sand beach!

It felt like we had stepped out into a little piece of paradise when we arrived at Magen’s Bay in St. Thomas. The planners had everything all set up beautifully. You can’t beat a stunning backdrop like this for your wedding day! Beach weddings really are the best!

Melissa’s dad was so very proud of his little girl. He loves her soo much and I can honestly say that I have never seen such a strong father/daughter bond, they really are like best friends! It was so nice to see that they have such a sweet relationship together, especially on Melissa’s big day.

Sean was so happy to see his beautiful bride to be walking down the sandy aisle. They make such an amazing couple!

Dave actually got in the water for this shot πŸ™‚ I love how he’s always thinking up unique and creative wedding photos.

This shot makes me so happy! It really reminds me of how elated they both were to be tying the knot. Super cute!

All of the vibrant colours looked so great against the beachy scenery! Corals and peaches looks so incredible with the turquoise sea. Love it! All of the colourful rose petals added a bit of playfulness as Melissa and Sean walked down the aisle officially Man and Wife!

What a gorgeous spot in the world, who wouldn’t want to get married at an exotic beach location like Megan’s Bay! We just love St. Thomas and can’t wait to go back πŸ™‚

After the ceremony we had some fun with the bridal party and gave Melissa and Sean a little time to soak it all in.

Sean and his boys were always having a good laugh and loving the vibe of the day!

Dave caught this shot of little Lauren playing under the canopy after the wedding. What a sweet moment!

We finished up with some cool shots of the bridal party and took the gondola up to a restaurant over looking the hills. It was so nice to take a break with Melissa and Sean and to give them some time alone as a newly married couple.

Isn’t this the coolest shot ever! I love this on and it’s one of my faves from the wedding. Dave grabbed this one very carefully out the window of the gondola! Super cool right!?!

Dave and Sean went into the shop to grab some water so Melissa and I took these shots outside of the store, lol! It goes to show if you have a willing bride you can capture beautiful images anywhere πŸ™‚

We had so much fun with these guys. I love these playful shots, too cute!

Melissa and I were left on our own while the boys took a few cool groomsmen shots so we had some fun before boarding the boat! It sort of reminds me of a 1940’s post card. I loved having the grandness of the ship as a backdrop.

After a fun day of shooting we made our way to the wedding reception and Melissa and Sean had a great time being with family and little Lauren again. It was a gorgeous wedding day and a beautiful reception.

Thanks so much to Melissa and Sean for choosing us to come along as your destination wedding photographers. We loved every moment we spent away with you all on board the ship and wish your family all the love and happiness in the future.

Stay tuned for Melissa and Sean’s Trash the Dress session in the exotic Turks and Caicos Islands!!
