Westin Grand Cayman Beach Resort Wedding photographed by Melissa Wolfe

I had the enormous pleasure to photograph Laura & Constanzo’s Westin Grand Cayman Beach Resort Wedding earlier this year. They are an amazing couple! I asked Laura to share their story and Cayman wedding experience.
Laura and Costanzo met through mutual friends who are siblings. Laura was friends with the girl and Costanzo was friends with the guy. She explains: “Costanzo came into my restaurant to eat one day and I thought he was attractive- so I asked my girlfriend if he was single and she said “no- I think he is in a relationship”. Apparently he felt the same about me so he asked her brother the same and got the same response. So we both thought nothing of it and moved on. Years later…we randomly bumped in to each other but he described our first meeting and remembered every detail. We exchanged numbers and went on our first date.”
She continues: “We always agreed that if and when we ever got married it would be a destination wedding. We chose Grand Cayman because we wanted something different than all of the “typical” locations people choose like Dominican, Cuba or Mexico. This would be a day and trip we remember for a lifetime so it had to be super special. My parents cousins have lived in Grand Cayman for about 10 years now- so my mom reached out to her cousin for a some details and we instantly fell in love with every thing we saw/heard. Once we arrived on the island, we were instantly reassured that we made the perfect choice. Everything was perfect- from the hotel, to the beach, food, people etc. It is literally the BEST place on earth!”
“Working with Melissa was a wonderful experience from the get go.” Laura explains: “I felt like I knew Melissa before I had even met her. She is a Toronto native so we had that connection as well. The day of the wedding she was such a pleasure to work with, very accommodating, lovely to all of my guests (I had so many people complimenting her). Above all- my mom LOVED Melissa (and she is always the toughest critic lol). She truly captured every special moment for us to hold on to and cherish for a lifetime!”
