Sometimes I don’t have a chance to communicate directly with a bride and groom prior to the ceremony and am instead working closely with their destination wedding coordinator from abroad. Alexandra of Luxe Destination Weddings was so fantastic to work with and I really looked forward to meeting her as well as Hali and Andrew. What a dream. And what a pleasure. Alexandra is spunky and spirited and really smooth at her job – not always easy to do when you are coordinating long distance. Hali was perfect, really – stunning and totally happy to let me do my thing. And Andrew, well, he is a true gentleman (at least he was off the rink!) Their ceremony was at the beautiful One & Only Ocean Club on a most perfect day. There are few locations more suited to photographing weddings – where the rooms have beautiful light, the grounds are always immaculate, so many location options for portraits and then, of course, the Cloisters themselves.
I was really excited to see the beautiful tent and drapes that Weddings by Cacique had “thrown” together in the gardens. Not only great for me for lighting but the hanging chandeliers and uplights created a beautiful ambience for romance and celebration.
There were lots of tears during the speeches (including my own as usual), quite a bit of hysterics when dad burst out in unexpected song during his speech, and a great amount of gettin’ down on the dance floor. Another success!
