David and Jamie’s island destination wedding at the Ritz-Carlton Puerto Rico was one to remember. Ohhhh the love! Childhood sweethearts, these two knew they wanted more than a wedding, they wanted a reunion of family and friends, and they wanted it all to take place under the deep azure skies and golden sunshine of a Caribbean paradise. Puerto Rico and the Ritz Carlton Hotel San Juan did not disappoint. The island is enchanting, the people are warm and friendly, and the service-oriented Ritz made the perfect venue for a week of fun in the sun. Activities included riotous volleyball competitions in the swimming pool, cocktails in the cabanas, late and lazy breakfasts, dinners on the beach, touring in Old San Juan, local sporting events, and of course lots of beach time. The NYC couple wanted their destination wedding photographer not only to capture the wedding day, they also wanted a travel photographer’s eye for landscapes, details, interiors and portraiture moments, all of which blended nicely in their wedding album.
Their ceremony began just before dusk, as the sun reached for the sea, and Jamie looked gorgeous in her Marisa dress and ocean blue Fendi shoes! West coast wedding planner extraordinaire Mary Dann made sure all the details were in place and was instrumental in assuring that all the guests were in a constant state of relaxed elation. Meanwhile, Ritz-Carlton wedding and event coordinator Nashely Santiago was busily working behind the scenes to insure that Mary and Jamie’s vision and the hotel’s staff were always in sync.
