Courtney + Christopher :: Wedding (Aruba)

It was an absolute joy and honor to be a part of Courtney and Chris’ wedding in Aruba. I had never been to this tiny island before and was so excited to see it!! Aruba has the prettiest aqua blue water I have ever seen. It was amazingly beautiful. I love small, intimate weddings so much. There is truly something so so special about having just your family and bestest of friends with you. The memories from the day are something the couple will never ever forget as long as they live. These two doctors found each other at medical school several years ago and the rest is pretty much history. ; ) (Love it when doctors fall in love, so cute!) They were both so kind to Deirdre and I in the entire wedding planning process, up until the day of the wedding. We truly enjoyed getting to know them and sharing in their wedded bliss. Hope you enjoy a few of my favorites from their memorable day.

Courtney and Christopher – thank you so much for inviting us to be a part of your wedding. I hope you love and cherish not only the photos, but each other… forever. xo

So I thought their invitations were truly SUCH a great idea for a destination wedding… a boarding pass!! Genius.

LOVED her mermaid dress.

Since they were having a sunset ceremony, they opted to do a First Look beforehand which I always love love love.

After spending some time doing some portraits, it was time for the big moment!

Loved the simplicity of the ceremony location.


As the ceremony ended, they had all of their guests join them at the beach to throw stones into the Caribbean as they each made a wish.

Love this photo… everyone who flew in and attended their wedding. Their friends and family came from all over. Chris’ parent’s are even from Trinidad which is why they chose to have their wedding in Aruba as a meeting place. So cool.

One of my favorites from the day:

First dance:

The couple laughing as their friends gave toasts.

The evening ended with everyone dancing the Aruban night away and it couldn’t have been more perfect.
