With everything we’ve seen so far of the festivities leading up to this wedding (take a look here and here), it’s no surprise to witness the love, beauty and warmth that fills these images, captured by Jenne Kappe Photography. Wonderful, tropical touches included a pretty combination of coral and pink and the fun addition of a traditional Junkanoo band to spice up the party!
From the bride: I choose a destination because my family is from the East Coast and Alun’s family is from the Midwest, so any way you slice it someone’s family is going to have to travel. I’ve always wanted a small wedding, something intimate and personal. I’ve heard from other friends of mine that got married about how they wish they had gotten to spend more time with friends and family at their wedding. So, we thought it would be best to have a small destination wedding where our guests could enjoy the event but, also have it serve as a mini-vacation. Harbour Island fit all of our needs; easy to travel to, gorgeous location, activities for everyone, amazing accommodations and a fantastic wedding designer (Ben of Little Island Design).
When it came to the dress, I was with my maid of honor and mom in Boston. We went dress shopping just to get an “idea” of what I would like and how much dresses cost. I had a picture of what I liked on my phone and when we went to L’Elite Bridal, the sales lady had the dress in the store. I tried on about nine dresses; the third dress was the one that I had a picture of, which I ended up buying that same day. It was an easy process and I am extremely thankful for that.
There were lots of memorable parts to the wedding. A few being, my father walking me down the aisle. Seeing Alun for the first time and vice verse. Saying our “I do’s”. Other highlights include the reception with a Junkanoo band and the fact that the night was capped off with fireworks!!! A complete surprise!!
