Oh Bahamas, you were good to us. You gave us perfect weather, good laughs, phenomenal moments, epic dancing, crazy dancing and pigs, yes pigs.
Kristiaan and I arrived in Bahamas a few days before the wedding and to spend quality time with Ashley, James and all their guests by the pool, on the beach and evening events. We got a really great sense of the friendships and love between everyone and made some new friends along the way. The entire week was simply perfect hugely in part of Lindsey of Highland Avenue Planning & Design. She is amazing as a planner, but even more as a person! Big thanks to her and Kelley Cannon for making it so great!
We absolutely loved everything about their wedding day as it was filled with simple sweet moments and good fun. Though it was hot, we were lucky to have some good cloud cover that gave us a beautiful soft light, yet the sun would peek out at the right times. Ashley was purely elegant and James was the definition of distinguished. Their ceremony was emotional yet funny and light hearted. We had a blast running through the sand across the beach with little time to get portraits, but seriously Ashley's veil was to die for. Dinner and toasts were super sweet and the dancing was nothing short of amazing. It started really well for the reception and then the dancing got somewhat wild. After a short time it was on to the after party with an beautiful custom ice luge, some serious tunes by DJ Furze and some of the most fun dancing we've had in years. I mean serious sweat, getting low and plenty of friskiness.
A few days later we were lucky enough to be invited on a boat trip with Ashley and James to a small private island that had its own pigs...that swim in the ocean! It was something to experience and appreciate and we loved every moment and are so thankful to have had the opportunity.
Love you guys Ashley and James XOXO!
