Sunny with blue skies above, the weather matched Peter and Rachel’s personalities to perfectly compliment their wedding day.
The two started their day off by getting ready with friends, and then prepared themselves for their first look of one another prior to saying their vows. Rachel walked through the dappled sunlight, veil shimmering, and Peter turned to see his bride – the two hugged, kissed and a few tears sneaked out as well as their emotions flowed freely.
Soon, it was time for their ceremony, and they and their bridal party walked down the Caras Park stairs to stand in front of their friends and family and share their love with one another. A soft breeze played with Rachel’s veil, and Peter couldn’t stop sneaking peeks and smiles at his beautiful bride.
Voices quavered as they spoke their vows to one another and their friends and family cheered as the two embraced in a long first kiss as husband and wife.
Dining, toasts and cake-cutting soon followed, as did plenty of fun-filled dancing – what a wonderful way to celebrate such a special occasion!
Rachel and Peter – what an absolute treat it was to photograph for you. I’ve said it before, but I’ll say it again – thank you so much for inviting me into such a special moment in your lives – you two and your friends and family were so much fun to work with, and I wish you all the best in your future together! You’re starting it off right in the Caribbean! ;)
