Forgoing a first look, the couple opted for a touching moment in the hotel’s Atrium, where they privately recited their vows surrounded by the tranquil beauty of their surroundings. It’s a great way to not break tradition while relieving some of the pre-ceremony nerves, and creating more memories on the big day.
The ceremony took place a the iconic Ocean Terrace overlooking the palm trees and the Atlantic. At the end of the aisle was a vision of pure elegance, adorned with stunning white florals that added a touch of ethereal beauty to the occasion. The beauty of their love was mirrored in the delicate blooms that graced every corner, creating a magical ambiance that left everyone in awe.
As the day transitioned into the evening, the reception Terra ballroom took on a breathtaking transformation by Xquisite Events. A magnificent white wisteria ceiling installation became the centerpiece of the room, showering guests with its sheer magnificence. The gentle glow of countless white candles added an air of romance, setting the perfect mood for an unforgettable celebration.
It’s worth noting that amidst all the grandeur, Ashley and Kevin chose a subtle yet meaningful detail – a small olive oil glass dispenser, a symbol of their love and the blessings they wished to pour upon their journey together.
We were honored by the level of trust Ashley and Kevin placed in us to document their day in a documentary-style approach. Throughout the festivities, they allowed us the freedom to be artistic, capturing candid moments that reflected the genuine emotions and joy shared by all. As photographers, it was heartwarming to see the couple and their guests fully present in the celebration, savoring every moment of this milestone event. – XO Jess
