We love traveling with our wedding couples to photograph their destination weddings. What an incredible time we had in the Bahamas for our wedding weekend with Arlyn and Evan. It was such a perfect setting; gorgeous resort, lots of really great activities, boat rides, fantastically fun people and the most gorgeous aqua blue water that was amazing for photographs.

The bride’s parents have a vacation home in the Bahamas that was very special to the couple.  They had many great memories there and wanted to bring everyone together to experience their favorite place.

 

 

The invitation

The couple set the island mood with save the dates printed on luggage tags that the guests used for their trip.  They sent a few along to us and photographing them was a great start to get us excited about photographing their wedding weekend.  A creative invitation quickly followed that looked like a custom passport. This built enthusiasm with the guests and they received many quick RSVPs.

 

 

The location

A nearby Bahamian resort provided the perfect backdrop for their wedding weekend.  Guests were greeted at their rooms with festive welcome bags full of treats that were perfect for an island getaway.  Almost everything from the bags to the beach towels was custom printed with a personalized logo the couple had created for the wedding.

The entire wedding weekend was packed with fun activities for the guests and we joined the festivities to photograph it all.  Snorkeling trips, BBQ excursions and trips to a private island kept the guests busy right up to the big day.

 

 

For the ceremony, the guests took a cruise to a nearby beach in a secluded part of the island.  After saying their vows we captured some great images of the newlyweds on the beach and around some of the island’s most iconic spots.  A beautiful outdoor reception followed at the resort and ended a perfect weekend of wedding photography.
