Chelsea and Matt are a pretty special couple to us – we first photographed their engagement session in Center City Philadelphia and we knew we were destined to be buds. This pair is incredibly laid back, goofy, and just plain fun to be around! They even brought their awesome labradoodle, Tanner, to the session – which we LOVED. As the big day approached we couldn’t help but be giddy with excitement…we were off to photograph Chelsea and Matt’s love story at one of the most romantic destination wedding in the world, Sandals Antigua! How awesome is that?! Let me start off by stating the obvious: destination weddings are the best – from the island vibe to the jaw dropping sunsets and pearly white beaches, Antigua is a photographer’s dream. While Lincoln photographed the boys donning Hugo Boss before the ceremony (aka rap music + Ice Age 4), I went off with Chelsea who was equally as playful all while looking truly stunning (not that Matt wasn’t looking stunning as well! haha). We had a great start to the day, angelic light and lovely subjects to photograph. The intimate ceremony took place in Sandal’s grand gazebo where Chelsea and Matt were surrounded by their best friends and beloved family members. After the ceremony we moved quickly around the shore and the resort to capture some breathtaking portraits of the couple. We were blessed with a heavenly sunset and couldn’t be happier with how the photos turned out! The reception took place by the reflection pool and the guests really let their hair down! From the heartfelt speeches to the wild dance moves – this was one celebration that will not be forgotten! We had so much fun and even developed a few special inside jokes with Chelsea and Matt (you know which pose I am thinking of!!) that they feel like friends, not just clients. Many many congratulations to you guys – you make an AMAZING pair and we were so happy to be apart of your adventurous Sandals Antigua destination wedding!
