As I’m sitting at the airport to head back to the States from the most beautiful, intimate island elopement, I’m so humbled to have been able to spend the last 5 days with Kelsey, Addison and their amazingly supportive family as we celebrated their life and love. When Kelsey asked me if I would be comfortable traveling for their elopement, I of course said yes, but when I found out we were headed to Turks and Caicos, I was ecstatic. This was what I’ve dreamed of my entire photography career – to be whisked away with an awesome couple to just live life to the fullest and do something that serves them and their love rather than serving everyone else.
They decided on traveling to the Beaches Resort in Providenciales, Turks & Caicos – and can I just take a minute to say how breathtaking it was here!? I’m not a beach person – like I choose mountains over the beach any time, any day – but I believe this island has changed my opinion and I may just be a tropical person after all! Anywho, the Resort did everything for them, and they did it oh so well!
The ceremony was perfectly intimate, complete with their children, parents and siblings by their side as they said their vows and promised each other forever. After their intimate, beach-side ceremony, we took some time for family photos then moved over to this gorgeous covered deck for cocktail hour and dinner. The food was impeccable, the drinks were flowing (their custom Signature Cocktail was the bombdotcom) and the laughter surrounding them filled the air and mixed with the sound of the waves crashing beside us. It was truly the most romantic thing I think I’ve ever been apart of.
As the sun started to set, we made our way down to the dock and the beach to play in the sunset and let Kelsey and Addison have some alone time before re-joining everyone for the evening. We spent the next 2 days snorkeling, laying by the pool, eating all the food we could possibly want, and just enjoying each other’s company.
