This wedding was so incredibly special and unique with the fact that Vas is from Russia and Julia is from Ukraine. They met in the USA, got engaged in Paris and were married in Jamaica. There is no doubt this couple is up for an adventure as one of their favorite things to do together is travel the world. I love that! They had family and friends fly from ALL OVER THE WORLD to come and take part of their special day. Again I, along with Michael, feel HONORED that we got to be two of those lucky people to experience this beautiful occasion.
Jewls and Vas- you guys are AMAZING and we really appreciate you giving us this amazing honor. : )
And so part two begins…
Mikey shot this of Julia and her father as they waited to walk down the aisle.
Vas as he made his way to the front to wait for his soulmate.
I love this shot Mikey took of the flower girl with her mom right before she headed towards me…
She was SO CUTE and came all the way from Germany to be a part of their big day.
Looove this. (Good job Mikey!)
The location and time of day was perfect.
And of course, as you know… I love all the pink!
I have to give Michael mad props for taking this shot – it’s wicked good!
They released two doves right after they were pronounced husband and wife. I adore this shot of Julia trying to calm the dove.
Mikey shot it from this angle…
And I shot it from the front! Such an amazing moment!
Julia is also Jewish so they incorporated the breaking of the glass as well… cool huh???
How happy do they look? You can’t help but smile.
As I shot a few photos of the newlyweds, Mikey got this shot that I think is hilarious of the flower girl. He is soooo good at capturing children and all of their wonderful emotions!
A night shot of the cocktail hour.
The storm that had previously passed right over us before the ceremony moved further down the beach and by this time you could see the lightning. I took this opportunity to attempt capturing it and I’m proud to say I did it!! Hollla!! I know most of you are toootttallly not impressed right now but I’m still going to show it off cause it’s my blog and I can! Ha!
Next up: the reception & trash the gown shoot!!
