Despite the frigid cold weather, Michelle and James were enveloped in warmth—the warmth found among friends and family who gathered to celebrate this fantastic couple. As these two soaked up every moment of their wedding day, their expressions were constantly smiling or laughing…their joy was contagious (as you’ll see in the photos!) After falling in love at law school in Vermont, they began a new adventure by moving to the Virgin Islands. They’re enjoying life in St Croix—not a bad place to practice law! :)
On their wedding day, Michelle and James wore bracelets that are locally made on the island. James informed me that folklore says when you’ve found love, you point the open end of the hook towards your heart. It’s neat that they incorporated a bit of island flair!
This wedding wrapped up my 2014 season; thank you to each incredible couple I worked with! I’m so eager for the fantastic weddings of 2015!
Michelle's "I'm getting married" face!
You can see the St Croix bracelet I mentioned above Michelle and her mom sharing a sweet moment
One of my favorites
This is another favorite from the day.
Thanks to my sister, Chelsea, for being a fabulous second-shooter. I love this moment she captured!
Keep in mind it was freezing cold with high winds on top of that! They were amazing to still have FUN during portrait time.
John Wright Restaurant is a classy reception venue which overlooks the Susquehanna River above.
Another great shot that Chelsea captured
Time to party! I love capturing the parents' expressions during toasts.
James' mom and Michelle's mom are so precious.
I love when the bride and groom decide to do untraditional things. They had a waffle bar instead of a cake, since neither of them enjoy cake!
