If you had to be stranded on a tropical island, which one would you choose? Well, St. Thomas would definitely be at the top of our list! With it's breathtaking views, world famous beaches and flavorful painkillers, it is the PERFECT place to celebrate any occasion!
To say that it was a privilege to share in Charles and Brittney's wedding is an understatement! Brittney was referred to Studio N by one of our lovely destination brides of the past, Mrs. Tina Schlichte! ( And we are so appreciative for the referral, I might add!) Brittney is an event planner and has a real appreciation for beautiful photography. When I asked her what her vision was for her special day, she told me that it was going to be a very relaxed, non-traditional occasion.. but it was going to be quite a celebration since they had been together for TEN YEARS. Brittney and "Chuck" ,as he is affectionately known, were tying the knot in St. Thomas and they wanted to take us with them to photograph the wedding week of festivities! (Darn! We hate it when that happens! hehe! Just kidding.. ;) )
It turns out that we had the time of our lives! We photographed the rehearsal dinner and the wedding day itself along with a few special moments in between. We were blessed with an exquisite sunset for their bridal session on Wednesday. I did Brittney's make-up on all three days. Brittney and Chuck chose to have their entire wedding and festivities take place at the AMAZING Beach House VI located in Magens Bay! Thanks to the expertise of Jessica Hume and team of STRG, the wedding day was a real success. Brittney looked absolutely beautiful as she walked down the stairs to meet her handsome groom on the veranda surrounded by family and friends that had traveled from Louisiana, Colorado, Seattle and Mississippi. Complete with mini chicken and waffles, crab cakes, mini pancakes, a build-your-own Benedict bar and champagne to wash it all down, it was finger-lickin' GOOD! Best brunch EVER. Not to mention those delicious tropical cupcakes! Brittney and Chuck finished off the afternoon with a sweet, first dance as husband and wife to Led Zepplin's "Thank You" in their flip flops... and then dove into the pool! Super fun times were had by all. Here are a few highlights from the wedding day!
