  • Daniela - These are spectacular! Love nighttime shoots!

Thought I would post a beautiful tropical destination wedding today! Bring a little sunshine to the cold winter weather we have been having here in Calgary.
We were extremely lucky to have Tina and Cody contact us and choose us to document their wedding in Antigua. The really cool part is we would travel to our destination via cruise ship. Jeff and I have traveled quite a bit and have done several cruises for holidays and having been to Antigua before we were beyond excited to get a chance to shoot a wedding on this beautiful Caribbean island. We had a great time getting to know Tina and Cody as well as their friends and family, what a fun bunch of people! What to post…this was tough as there are so many beautiful images to share but I just picked out a few and decided to post their slideshow. ( right below) Be sure to watch it in HD !

The first part of the slideshow is their engagement session in St. Croix and the actual wedding was in Antigua. They had their ceremony and lunch at La Bussola in Runaway Bay. This spot is beyond amazing…we did a few photos on that hot sandy beach with that unreal turquoise water, then we went to Devils Bridge, an old Fort and then caught some yummy golden evening light on a nice quiet beach and then back to the ship for a couple photos before dinner. I feel beyond blessed that our “job” takes us to so many stunning and exciting destinations. Tracy from Indigo Event Services helped plan Tina and Cody’s day so it went smoothly! I highly recommend considering Antigua when planning a destination wedding! Enjoy =)

  • Jarusha - Holy moly! These are STUNNING! What an amazing wedding and incredible photos :)

When’s the big day? August 16, 2014

How did you meet?
We were a secret office romance! Only a handful of people knew but eventually it was the worst kept secret around!

How did he propose?
I came home after work one day and he had music, candles and flowers at the front door. He had spread seven questions with fill in the blank responses around our dining room floor. Some of the questions were “where did we meet, where do we want to travel to, what was the first movie we saw together, and where was our first date.” Some of the letters in the fill in the blank response had numbers attached to them. The last envelope had a fill in the blank with all of the numbers underneath from the previous questions. I went through the questions and filled in “Will You Marry Me?” He appeared from around the corner and got down on one knee and proposed!

Favorite thing about each other?
he says: She is the most generous person I know.
she says: His sense of humour – he is constantly making me laugh!

Your idea of a perfect date?
he says: 9 holes and some great food with a view.
she says: Takeout and a movie rental at home on the couch.

What’s your favorite thing to do together? Traveling and exploring new things together!

Favorite kind of takeout?
he says: Indian
she says: Chinese

Your favorite hangout?
By the pool in Scottsdale, Arizona!

One place in the world you must go see?

Mike + Melissa have been so patient waiting to see their blog post so I made it a long one! Truth is..I couldn’t decide. hee heeee. Lots of computer time and not much sleep this last week had rendered me indecisive. We had a fantastic day with these seemed so relaxed and easygoing. We love it when the day runs so smoothly and then you add in a fun bridal party and it makes for a great day! Wait until you see the lovely statue that is passed down to newlyweds in the family. It’s a real treat…lol I am sure it will be proudly displayed in their home for years to come =)
