A wedding in March in the Caribbean…aah. And for An and Jeff and their friends and family, this Philadelphia couple’s wedding celebration was the perfect break everyone needed from the brutal winter we’ve had back east this season.
An and Jeff spent the week getting all the details ready for their big day that started at Whispering Pines, nestled in the hills of Vieques, Puerto Rico – the couple’s temporary home away from home. An’s doll-like porcelain face was the perfect canvas for local makeup artist, Michelle to add a touch of wedding glow and glamour. Maid of Honor, Minh, was on hand to take care of all the finishing touches. And Denise’s floral arrangements (Vieques Gifts and Flowers) brought the whole look together with bouquets of amazing yellow calla lilies and white roses.
An and Jeff had never been to Vieques, Puerto Rico before. But they fell in love with “Isla Nena” and wanted to have their photographs done away from the beaches and instead around the town of Isabel II in celebration of the culture and bright colors this rustic island has to offer. They were overwhelmed at the numbers of people who stopped to wish them congratulations as they went by!
Congratulations, An and Jeff. And thank you for inviting me to photograph your Vieques Wedding. You are one of the sweetest couples I’ve ever had the pleasure and joy to work with!
