I can’t imagine a more perfect place to celebrate your “I Do’s” than a St. Martin Destination Wedding! This little island, home of 2 countries (1/2 is French-Saint Martin & 1/2 is Dutch – Sint Maarten) is my own little slice of paradise (we honeymooned & spend anniversaries here!), and I was more than thrilled when Irina contacted me to photograph their destination wedding! They had rented Villa Ambiance in Terres Basses, and what an incredibly luxurious spot it was. The terraces with a view of the ocean, was simply perfect for their small dinner reception.
I started the day as the finishing touches of hair and makeup were going on, and Irina was about to get dressed. After some of the family portraits, the guests began arriving for a pre-ceremony cocktail. A bus transported everyone down to Baie Longue for the beachside sunset wedding ceremony, which was just incredible. After a few portraits with the amazing sunset behind us, the party moved back to the villa, where the steel drum band duo provided the perfect island sounds for their dinner reception. Guest favors included little bottles of the local Guavaberry rum, which in a guavaberry colada is simply deeeelish!!
Nadia from Prestige Design Events did a great job setting up both the ceremony and the reception, and Fabulous Feasts put out quite the spread of island foods. And I couldn’t have done it without my assistant, my fabulous husband John Pozniak!
Irina+Timothy – what an incredible destination wedding! You were blessed to be surrounded by your friends and family in paradise, and I am so happy that I was able to capture your big day, in my most favorite place on earth 🙂 Congratulations!!
Much Love, ♥ tPoz
