Intimate Wedding at the Phoenician

Wow do we have special couples.

I think I first spoke to the bride last March. Her voice was infectious - I adored her from the first conversation. She was calling from Canada - and they had decided to have a small destination wedding at a gorgeous resort. The Phoenician was their choice (a fantastic one I might add!) What they wanted for their wedding was for the closest people in their lives to be by their side on their special day.

We met in person at the resort to do a quick little engagement session and to go over the details. The personality I had spoken to on the phone was just as sweet and full of life and laughter as I had imagined. Of course the groom-to-be was a perfectly likable guy - an absolute sweetheart. But there is just something so contagious about his bride-to-be - warmth and enthusiasm - yet completely genuine. 

This intimate wedding at the Phoenician was packed with emotion and meaning - so much heartfelt sentiment. I think it takes real courage to have such a private wedding - so many people that wish to come but will have to wait till your hometown celebration. Yet this privacy and intimacy was just so perfect for these two and their closest family. 

It is an absolute honor to capture their wedding story.
