Archive for 'Cayman wedding'

Gudrun and William met in 2002 at Vanderbilt University where both attended college.  They were friends for a couple of years and started dating officially in 2004.

After graduation their careers took them to different locations across the US – Gudrun went off to Boston then Los Angeles then to New Orleans while William found himself in Louisville then Austin, TX and then Milwaukee.  Wanting to give their relationship a real chance they both moved to Chicago.

Ten years after they started dating at college they got engaged in 2014 after a weekend away at a beautiful resort in Geneva, IL.  Their daughter Sunna Wu was born in January 2015.

For their wedding they eloped to the Ritz-Carlton, Grand Cayman. Gudrun says: “We choose Grand Cayman for our wedding because we both vacationed there as children and have been returning together for the past 3 years.  We visit Grand Cayman once every year and plan to do so for many years into the future.  It holds a special place in our hearts as it is where we decided to start trying for a baby and discussed for the first time getting married.”

I love taking a few minutes with the bride before the wedding ceremony for some bridal portraits. The bride looks stunning with her make up and hair all beautifully done.  Carleigh was no exeption and had the most amazing dress for her wedding to go with it all. Just stunning!

Jennifer and Mitch chose the beautiful beach at the Westin Grand Cayman Beach Resort for their wedding. I had such a fun time with those two and their friends. The bridal party was a riot they went along with all the crazy photo ideas. Such fun!

I am sorry to break it to you but it isn’t always sunny in Paradise. We do have the odd rainy days which mostly consist of showers … so wait for a few minutes and it’s all over. However it was a little bit more than a shower on Andrea & Shane’s wedding day. Rain on your wedding day is for Good Luck and  so these two must be the luckiest couple in the world.

Tavarus and Pilar met in Tampa via mutual friends. The proposal was magnificent… He swept her away to Sedona to a resort called ‘Enchantment’, supposedly on a “work trip”….  Coincidentally, I was at the same Sedona resort months before and can vouch for the deep energy that the canyons and red rock surrounding Enchantment possess.  Ideal place for love and commitment.

The trip had absolutely nothing to do with work but become the most magical proposal with a bride that had absolutely no idea. As Pilar can tell you much better in her own words:

“I asked what our plans were for tomorrow and he said that the company arranged for a trip to the Grand Canyon. The next morning we arrive at the airport, and there is a private plane waiting for us to fly us to the Grand Canyon.  The trip and scenery was amazing during our flight, we got a mini tour by the pilot..It was breathe taking. On the ground we walked around looking at many landmarks and then we decided to stand on the highest point at The Grand Canyon..called Guano Point..everyone was taking pictures so we waited until the bulk of people were off the rock so we could take some pictures alone. Before I climbed up the rock, I found a family and asked if they could take some photos of us while on this rock. Tavarus then also asked if they would video tape it for us. They said of course. So, I climbed up first on the rock and as I turned around to help Tavarus up, he was on his knees and I heard music playing from his was the Band Of Monsters And Men, song From Finner. Still having no clue what was going on..I said to him “What are you doing on your knees, stand up”.. He looked at me and I saw him reach in his pocket and he pulled out the ring..I covered my month and just started weeping in happiness and said YES of course and everyone around was clapping and cherring for us and we hugged and embraced each other for the longest while. It was just the most amazing moment other than exchanging our vows, that I had ever experience. So with all that..he proposed at The Grand Canyon and  it was never a company trip..He planned the entire weekend all himself.”

Their wedding day was as magnificent by the blue waters of Grand Cayman. Pilar looked incredibly stunning in her gown next to an equally handsome Tavarus as they danced the night away under the Caribbean stars.

I love all the details of Brachla and Keith’s wedding beautifully orchestrated by their wedding planners Parfait Cayman. Brachla’s hair and dress were stunning and the gentlemen look thoroughly handsome with their lime bow ties.  The Villas of the Galleon was the perfect setting for their island wedding followed by culinary delights from Mise En Place at their reception right on Seven Mile Beach.

Kelcey and Jordan selected The Westin Grand Cayman Beach Resort for their intimate wedding amongst family and friends.

Kelcey’s vintage inspired wedding dress and hairpiece looked absolutely stunning for their Cayman beach wedding. I love that both didn’t mind getting a little bit wet … well, a lot actually. It was certainly worth it.  Judge for yourselves!

I am excited to share my latest Engagement Photo Session in Little Cayman with you. Karen and Spike spent their very first holiday together in Little Cayman and loved the island ever since. So when choosing a location for their shoot, Little Cayman sprung to mind. Since it is one of my favourite places on earth and I was very happy to oblige.

Karen moved to Grand Cayman just over 11 years ago from Ireland and met Spike nearly 10 years ago and they have been together ever since managing to survive a long distance relationship for two years and some very expensive phone bills!  Spike was born and grew up in Cayman to Northern Irish parents.

They both met when they were in the service industry/college and have somehow ended up as grown ups being a teacher and an accountant.

Spike proposed this summer in northern Italy.  Karen remembers: “We went exploring with a picnic in tow, and ended up in the Dolomites in Alleghe, we took a cable car to the top of Monte Civetta and after our picnic he proposed.  I think it was part of his plan to take me somewhere where no one spoke English and I couldn’t get away lol.  He did then have to endure a 2 hour car drive back with me staring at my ring and squealing with excitement.”

I am thrilled to be photographing their wedding later this year too.

Apparently Thursday is ‘throwback’ Thursday nowadays.  In that spirit, I went through my archive and discovered this gorgeous wedding that I had not shared before.

Erika & Steve celebrated their wedding at the prestigious Grand Old House on Grand Cayman. The old plantation house is a fantastic venue for a romantic Caribbean wedding with all it’s old world charm.

After the ceremony, we headed to a local party and a our home in South Sound for some more pictures.

I absolutely loved the set up for Marilyn and Christopher’s wedding on the beach of the Ritz-Carlton, Grand Cayman.

There are so many beautiful pictures of this wedding that I put them into a slide show. Enjoy!
