It was 5 years ago when I went to Aruba at the Stellaris Resort for Liz and Shane’s destination wedding. I was so excited to go, and the whole trip was amazing! The night before started out at the infamous Papiamento restaurant where the family opened gifts, gave some toasts, and indulged in really good food. The wedding day started off very relaxed with everyone in a great mood, followed by ceremony on the beach, and perfect weather for the reception. You couldn’t ask for better weather. After the party, I convinced the remaining guests and bridal party to do a jump in the pool- fully clothed! One of the best things about this trip was that I met Liz’s sister Melissa. Her and her fiancé Elias took me to the Dominican Republic last year for their destination wedding, where I also photographed a sunrise shoot for the first time. Happy 5 year anniversary!
