Wedding Shoes by Melissa Wolfe Photography

Ask any girl and most will admit that they have a too many shoes! So choosing your wedding shoes a big deal. Some brides probably spend more of their wedding budget on shoes than on the wedding dress.

What I love about Cayman Weddings is that you can wear any kind of shoe for your Big Day … heel, no heel, flip flops and at the end of the day ‘shoes are optional’!

A wonderful Caribbean Beach Wedding photographed by Melissa Wolfe

I had the great pleasure to photograph Paige and Waylon’s Caribbean Beach Wedding at the Westin, Grand Cayman recently. 

Paige and Waylon first met in their first semester of nursing school in the fall of 2011. They started off as good friends and then started spending more time together in school and studying together outside of class and eventually their relationship progressed into a romantic one!  

Asked why they decided to exchange of vows in the Cayman Islands, Paige says: “I have always wanted to get married on a beach and have a destination wedding and when I saw photos of Seven Mile Beach I just fell in love with the location!”

She continues: “Melissa made me so comfortable that I really didn’t even feel like I needed to tell her what I wanted in our photos, she just knew! She was so wonderful to work with and I highly recommend her!”

Cayman Wedding Video by Melissa Wolfe Photography

Today I would like to share Karen and Spike’s Cayman wedding video. It is the first video where we used some drone footage and I think it really shows of the location and the island. A bird’s eye view of the ceremony certainly gives this wedding a different angle.

Breast Cancer Survivor Portraits by Melissa Wolfe

For many years my team and I have been supporting the local Breast Cancer Foundation by donating our time to photograph their fundraising events. Beyond that I also put a family portrait session into the live auction. This year the session was auctioned by a underwater photographer Ellen Cuylaerts and filmmaker husband Michael Maes.

Shortly after the Fundraising Gala, Ellen and Michael approached me that they would like to donate the session to local breast cancer survivors. We invited Ellen, Michael and  breast cancer survivors Aimee, Jenny, Sharon and their families to our home for an afternoon of fun and photos.

The 2016 Breast Cancer Gala Dinner is scheduled for the 1st of October.

Cayman Wedding photographed by Melissa Wolfe

They say time flies when your having fun and Karen and Mike are having a lot of fun together since they first met 11 years ago and certainly during their Cayman wedding. Karen was working as a bartender and caught the attention of a guy who was home from university for the summer. At first both thought it was going to be a summer romance, which then turned into a long distance relationship and in 2007 Spike moved back home to the Cayman Islands.  Their our love and commitment to each other continued to grow stronger with each year passing. Two years ago Mike proposed on Monte Civetta on the top of Dolomites in Alleghe.

I asked KJ what her favourite part of her Cayman wedding day was and she replied: “We both really struggle to pinpoint a favourite part of our day everything was so special, from having my mom to be able to attend the wedding last minute and walk me down the aisle, to us tying an actual knot as a sign of our commitment to each other in front of all those we love and value so dearly to the amazing weather we got with those spectacular waves crashing in the background to the awesome party we had after its impossible to choose!” 

She continues:”We are so pleased we choose Melissa and her team to work with for both our engagement session and our wedding photos. She is kind and caring, willing with her time and advice. She offers a very tailored experience and built an excellent rapor with us to ensure she really knew us and knew how to capture us best in her work. On the day especially during the ceremony we loved how she was invisible, she captured amazing photographs without us every noticing her around.”
