Kristen & Dan | Palm Beach Aruba Wedding

Kristen and Dan traveled from Chicago to Aruba to get married in April. And Nathan and I were lucky enough to photograph the celebration. (Talk about a pinch-me moment!)

Wedding in Aruba made perfect sense for these two. They're laid back, fun and legitimately have smiles on their faces all the time. I even remember Kristen saying, "I love to smile," while she was getting ready on her wedding morning. :) All that and they got engaged in Aruba!

That happy island got a whole lot happier when Kristen and Dan said, "I do." I've never documented a more joyful wedding, and it will go down as one of the highlights of my photography career. Thanks a million for having us, Kristen and Dan!

Ceremony: Santa Filomena Catholic Church
Reception: Aruba Marriott Resort

Kristen & Dan | Aruba Snorkel Cruise Rehearsal Dinner

I can confidently say that this was the most fun rehearsal dinner I've ever photographed AND attended. A snorkel cruise in the middle of the Caribbean Sea? Yes, please!

When Kristen and Dan contacted me after Danielle and Ed's wedding, I jumped at the chance to work with this family again. Not only are they incredibly gracious and inclusive and easy to photograph, this family knows how to have a good time. And I knew that fun would be multiplied at a wedding on the beautiful island of Aruba.

Here's just a little taste of how the weekend went. Up later this week is Kristen and Dan's tropical wedding!

P.S. I wasn't hired by Jolly Pirates to advertise for them ... they were just that good! If you're headed to Aruba, I'd highly recommend checking them out!
