WOW! WOW! WOW! Is all I can think about for this destination wedding to Antigua. Jeanna and Ely found me on Instagram and we connected very easily. When they told me their wedding was going to be in Antigua I knew we were all in for a treat. Over the months leading up to the wedding was filled with lots of communication and excitement.
Knowing they were having so many people from the US come to Antigua, I knew I had to show up and make their vision come to life. They have always talked about Antigua to their family and friends and were excited for everyone to experience the island and the culture. They were also excited to get their US family and friends to meet their Antiguan family and friends. They have had a lot of loss of family members on both sides in the past 5 years, so they really wanted everyone to come together for something positive and fun. And fun they had! Shout out to my brother Rando who flew down with me to handle the video and to local team in Antigua who were able to assist for part of the day.
