Wedding Venue: Lush Life, Governor’s Harbour, Eleuthera
Wedding Planner / Caterer / Decor: Boy Meets Girl Weddings
I was first contacted by the bride’s mother, Sybil, and in my communication with her I just knew this was going to be a beautiful and spirited wedding. Under the masterful artistry of Mish from Rainbow Inn and owner of Boy Meets Girl Weddings, all of Jennifer’s ideas were brought to fruition. I’ve photographed several weddings at Lush Life, a beautiful private beachfront estate on Banks Road in Governor’s Harbour, Eleuthera, but this was the first to make use of all of the fantastic locations that it affords.
As I learned later in the evening, Jennifer & Brian met on match.com. Yes, match.com and I can tell you that I am now truly inspired to revisit this dating medium. In spite of Jennifer’s near reluctance to go on their first date, she did so with a heave and a push from her closest friend and maid of honour. And that first date was the beginning of this relationship where two kindred spirits were united. And boy, are they in tune with each other!
There were beautiful moments that were captured – you can see the bride’s quick peek at the groom while he was looking at to sea during those last moments before the ceremony; a beautiful exchange of last words with a “non-look first-look”; and a blending of the sands bringing the bride and groom and their individual daughters together as one family, united.
There were margueritas, bahama mamas, bare feet, “potcakes” on the beach, bonfires, lanterns and fire works. A real celebration!
