DEMETRIOS + ALEXIS’S NEW YORK CITY WEDDING

AIt seems like just yesterday that we were in New York City, braving the freezing temps to capture a gorgeous Greek wedding day unfold before our eyes!  These two lovebirds are professionals in New York City with extremely google-able Greek first and last names, so we’re giving them awesome Greek alias names for this blog post to keep things a little more private for them!  So…. I’d like to introduce you to Demetrios and Alexis!  Awesome Greek names, right?!  I’m a little biased with”Alexis” because I (Jill) actually went by the name Alexis for my first two years living in South Korea after I found out that my real name was an extremely embarrassing word in Korean!  Yep, lucky me!  Alright, back to the real reason for this post, Demetrios + Alexis!!  Aaron and I spent the majority of the brisk November day with these two, laughing, frolicking through Central Park, fixing stains on dresses, riding school buses with excited wedding guests, photographing their ceremony in an unbelievable Greek Cathedral in Manhattan where all of their siblings had said their vows, eating AMAZING food, gawking at the view of the city from their Water’s Edge reception venue in Queens, trying to decipher all of the Greek that was being spoken, getting in the middle of some of the most insane Greek dancing with camera’s held above our heads while 290 guests joined in, and capturing their relationship and love for each other from behind our lenses!  It was insane, and exhausting, and INCREDIBLE… and a wedding we’ll likely NEVER forget!  Enjoy some of our favorite shots from their big day!

JENNIFER + JUSTIN’S ST MARTIN WEDDING

Jennifer + JustinSt Martin?!  Yes please!  We met Jennifer + Justin when they were guests at Tate & Davis’s wedding here in Charleston!  Jill asked if they wanted a picture together, and Justin responded with, “Sure! Do you shoot international weddings by chance?”, and 3 weeks later, we were sending off a contract and making plans to fly to St Martin for their wedding 4 months later, and pinching ourselves the entire time!  We LOVE shooting Charleston weddings, but any time we get the chance to travel for work, especially somewhere tropical like the Caribbean, we’re basically head over heels!  Jennifer + Justin absolutely love St. Martin and came to the island last year to scope out the perfect spot to hold their nuptials and to spend the week with their friends!  What better way to have a destination wedding than to rent an entire compound for the week and have separate villas for each of your guests!  HELLO paradise!!!  So, that’s what they did!  With a gigantic compound like Mes Amis, private chefs making breakfast and dinner everyday, maids coming to your room every morning, and a view like this, how could you possibly not enjoy yourselves?!  Jennifer + Justin welcomed Aaron and I into their wedding week with open arms and treated us as if we were 2 of their 24 wedding guests!  It was an honor, a pleasure, and a beautiful gift to Aaron and I!  Jennifer + Justin, thank you for trusting us to capture your wedding day and for welcoming us into your week!  We’ll NEVER, ever, ever forget you two or your fabulous wedding!!   Enjoy some of our favorite photos!
