It’s been another winter of ah-maz-ing destination wedding locations for Andrew and I. Andrew shot weddings in both Mexico and then India, while I traveled to Jamaica. Andrew and I have now photographed weddings in over 50 locations around the globe and ironically my very first destination wedding was here in Jamaica.
Jerry + Ginny are the most adventurous souls, so it’s no surprise that their wedding took them a long way from home … last month to the Caribbean! After three wonderful years together, they decided to tie the knot at the Iberostar Grand Hotel Rose Hall in Jamaica, and I was so lucky to join them along with 50 family and friends.
The wedding day began in Ginny’s bridal suite, which had the most stunning ocean view beyond the wraparound balcony. As you can see, it was impossible to resist taking advantage of the rustic romantic suite’s incredibly high ceilings. Ginny and her bridesmaids had a grand time jumping on the bed to calm some pre-wedding jitters.
The weather had everyone a little nervous in the morning as rain showers toyed with us, but they quickly departed and made way for a beautiful warm day. Fifty friends and family travelled from London, Ontario to spend a dreamy wedding day on the beach with the happy couple. Among the guests were Ginny’s sister, Jamie, and her fiancé, Greg. We will be shooting their wedding later this year!
The ceremony took place in the sand right near the water. Everyone was in awe of the clear blue ocean. That is, until Ginny emerged in her stunning gown and rendered everyone speechless. She was such a beauty, and Jerry was beaming with pride as he took his bride’s hands in his. Their vows were sweet and the crowd cheered as they officially became husband and wife!
Like I said in the beginning, Ginny + Jerry are adventurous souls. The day after the wedding proved this in spades. We spent the afternoon roaming the resort in search of the perfect photo ops for their bridal portraits, which lead us underwater and to a sandy volleyball court. The photos that were captured are proof that they are going to spend a long, happy life together stumbling upon adventure after adventure along the way!
Congratulations, Ginny + Jerry!
