We photograph so many weddings on Grace bay and its’ resorts that we often forget about all the other jewels scattered throughout the island, like Blue Haven marina. Vanessa & Terrell saw the potential in the property during their site visit and I had the privilege of documenting their vision made into a reality on their wedding day. Vanessa made for a beautiful bride and we had a blast starting off with her prep photos in her pent house suite. The bridal party was decked out to every last detail and spirits couldn’t have been higher. The cloudy skies opened up into bright blues just as Vanessa finished getting into her dress. The timing was nothing short of perfect. Terrell and his groomsmen were just as bright and looking dapper- we made great use of our time and the architecture of the resort to nab some awesome portraits before the ceremony began.
The ceremony itself proceeded like clockwork, full of great little moments to add to the story. It was emotional for everyone- it was a very powerful service. It’s always breezy at Blue Haven, keeping everyone nice and cool and adding a great ambiance to the entire area. You could only hear the officiant and palms blowing in the wind- this tranquility erupted into the utter opposite as the bride & groom kissed and everyone cheered. We went straight into group photos opening up with an awesome petal toss image. At this time I decided to take our bride & groom to a nearby beach with the perfect angle on the sunset to give them some privacy and get some stunning portraits. You could tell just how happy both Vanessa & Terrell were at that moment; it made the posing and image-making process absolutely effortless for all of us!
The reception was out of this world, again full of details and little touches made personally by the bride. It was a fantastic party with moving speeches, with a sweet sparkler send off to kick off the dance floor! It is rare to have so much positive energy in one place at one time. It is one of the few reasons I love shooting weddings, and Vanessa and Terrells’ was no exception. This was a terrific Blue Haven Wedding!
