One and Only Ocean Club Destination Wedding
We had the pleasure of flying down to Nassau Bahamas this month to photograph the wedding of Lauren and Dickie at the incredible One and Only Ocean Club Destination Wedding. We love photographing destination weddings and this one was amazing. The most important factor on a wedding day for us is having enough time to create the types of images we are known for. But in tropical locations, weather can often be challenging with rain and wind, as it was on this particular wedding day. But hopefully if we did our job right, you would never know it from looking at these photos.
The rain stopped just a couple minutes before the ceremony started. We loved the stormy look especially with the dramatic Cloisters as the backdrop. The Cloisters are the 14th century remains of a French Monastery. It was originally purchased and imported to the US by newspaper baron William Randolph Hearst and later bought by Huntington Hartford and brought to the grounds of the One and Only Resort in Paradise Island, Bahamas.
After a beautiful sunset ceremony, I set up to take a few stellar portraits that showcased the location and beautiful couple. Later, Lauren the bride, was surprised by Dickie with a live performance by country singer Ray Scott who wrote their first dance song. He flew down the band to perform their hit song Never Wanna Be Without You and play a mini concert for the guests. Now that’s romantic!
The guests feasted on a delicious menu catered by the One and Only Resort and enjoyed Ray’s live performance well into the night. At the end of the evening, we convinced the wedding party to end the night right with everyone jumping into the pool. That ended with me joining them as you can see in the last photo!
Boy do we love our Destination Weddings!
