The Sea as Our Witness: Beach Elopement in the Caribbean!
Hola, everyone! Today I'm sharing a particularly amazing wedding day. Megan and Neil's elopement was equal parts fun, beautiful, heartwarming and sweet!
Most of my clients nowadays are destination wedding couples. So, one of my favorite business practices is to always send out a questionnaire to each couple right after booking, so I can get to know them a bit better before their big day. I just loved reading Megan and Neil's responses, because it gave me an insight into their profound romance. When asked about what I should know of them as a couple, they replied: "We truly enjoy each other's company. We have the same life goals. We value family. We compliment each other well. We support each other. We are still in the process of continually falling in love with each other. We plan to move to Puerto Rico so getting married here is so exciting."
Elopement in Rincón Puerto Rico
Ana Maria Hernandez, fellow #weddingfreak and officiant recommended me to Neil and Megan a month before their elopement. They wanted something simple: recite custom vows at a beach in Rincon, get married, have some photos. And although our day looked basically like that, it was so much special than what it sounds like.
Since they were planning on having a 10 am wedding, I recommended them to get a little earlier so we could do portraits in better lighting situations, as both sunlight and heat are heavy in the tropics, even for a February wedding like Megan and Neil's.
Photos in Rincon Lighthouse
Our day started at around 9:30 am at our meeting point: the quaint and picturesque Rincon Lighthouse, which is right by Domes Beach, where they would get married later. We did some portraits by the lighthouse, then we walked through the decks in search of a nice, shaded spot with a nice greenery view for their couple portraits.
Afterwards, we walked down to the beach where Ana Maria was already arriving. We stood by the lighthouse cliff area, where the ceremony started after Neil ran back to his car: we forgot the rings! Oops. It was a beautiful, heartwarming, intimate and romantic ceremony. After celebrating together for their new married life, we walked around the beach to get a few more portraits, after which we said farewell!
Enjoy this happy set!
