St. Maarten Wedding // Jen & Scott
There are few things that get me as excited as hopping on a plane to somewhere warm and beautiful. Jen and Scott gave me the perfect excuse to get away this winter when they asked me to travel with them to gorgeous St. Maarten to photograph their wedding.
One of the things that made this trip so incredible was having the rare opportunity to spend quality time with the friends and family who came along to celebrate. Destination weddings are often much smaller and more intimate than weddings back home, and having that extra time to get to know the people who love and support the couple, is something special.
When describing her wedding, Jen said she chose a destination wedding because "we loved that our closest friends and family all intermingled and got to know each other. We chose St. Maarten because it was somewhere slightly different. We knew most of our friends had already travelled to some of the more common destinations and in choosing St Maarten, we were able to get what we wanted and give our guests the opportunity to travel somewhere most had never been. My favourite moment of the day was when I was alone in my room getting ready. I looked out from the balcony at the planes landing and the turquoise ocean and just got so excited to marry my best friend. Next was seeing Scott during our first look. Seeing how handsome he looked in his suit and him seeing me in my dress was the best start to my day. Finally the dance party. I was so happy Tami was able to capture this part of the evening. Looking back on these photos makes me smile every time. Seeing all my friends and family having such a great time celebrating Scott and I was everything I wanted for my wedding day."
Jen and Scott, thank you again from the bottom of my heart for trusting me and taking me with you on this wild adventure!
