Beautiful Shay & Charles! So much fun to spend time with. We started our photography with a quick session at the rehearsal dinner the night before at the fantastic Carmine’s, Marina Village, Atlantis, Paradise Island. On the day of the ceremony I met Shay and her super bridesmaids in her gorgeous ocean view suite at The One & Only Ocean Club, Paradise Island. I managed to sneak away for a few minutes for some quick pics of the groom and his boys getting ready – the usual: sports on the tv, wings on the table, and a few nervous grins. In the girls room there were tears and laughter, champagne and toasts then it was off to the stunning ceremony location of The Cloisters. The day ended with cocktails at the Lily Pond and dining and dancing under the stars in the Versailles Gardens. There was so much emotion, especially when various family members and friends spontaneously took the microphone and began singing beautiful, very poignant and touching songs. I openly admit to crying at many of the weddings that I photograph, and this one was no exception. I cannot help but be moved when I see so much love and tenderness between the bride and groom, and their family and friends.
