how to start this post?! I’ve been wracking my brain but there’s nothing witty to open with – because it.was.that.AMAZING! it’s rare for words to escape me but in this case it’s true. as I mentioned in this week’s monday moments, to have someone want to fly you to another country – let alone one of the most beautiful places ever – to shoot their wedding is such an honor and gift. it all started back in april when we did the editorial fashion/bridal shoot with courtney brooke salon - it was there I met susan. she was a jane-of-all-trades: make-up artist, stylist and one fierce model. we had SO much fun with her and she kind of mentioned that she was getting married in jamaica in june. a couple of weeks later she was back at courtney’s to help out with senior prom make-up and she asked if we travel. ummmmm…. YES! then a couple of weeks later 5 words popped up on my facebook “do you have a passport?” wooo hooo!! and plans were set in motion. I had been to jamaica twice before on vacation – montego bay and ocho rios, but neither compared with the beauty that is negril! it is SO gorgeous! and the resort where we all stayed, the RIU palace tropical bay, was incredible! the night before the wedding, I went over to susan’s room to hang out with her and we figured out that we had “known” each other decades back when we were both on a local swim team and I was suddenly overcome with happiness that kristie and I were a part of their wedding day – we are truly blessed!

susan has an adorable daughter named samantha who was so much fun – later in the post you will see why susan is the coolest mother in the world for letting samantha play in the carribean sea! I love this moment while they get ready

there wasn’t a dry eye on the beach as susan walked with her parents down the aisle…


married!! – from my + kris’ perspective :)

these two know how to work it!!

there will be another post full of photos from getting ready to the reception and beach party next week but we wanted this post to be about susan, jonathan and samantha. we can’t say thank you enough for making us a part of such a special day – we are so happy and grateful to have been there with you. we know that you will have an amazing life together and we wish you so much happiness and love xoxoxo
