Pink in Paradise
Welcome to the first of the Saint Maarten posts!
DT and I were able to take a week long trip to the island in the beginning of December to celebrate my college roommate's wedding! I'll share more about the wedding in a later post, but let me just say that if you are debating going to a destination wedding, make it happen. Seriously. If it's anything like this trip was, it will be a definite highlight vacation.
I can't tell you how good it felt to jet off to the Caribbean right as winter was rolling into DC. Being on the beach, in a bathing suit, in the sun was just what I needed. I'll never turn down a warm-weather trip!
We shot these photos right after the rehearsal, before heading off to the rehearsal dinner. The light was so good, I didn't even edit these photos (other than some cropping). It was in that impossibly perfect golden hour window, there was a warm breeze off the water, and if you can't tell, my hair was being amazing.
I bought this dress specifically for the rehearsal dinner because it was beachy, flowy, and I hoped I'd have enough of a tan by this point that I wouldn't look like a ghost - I was right! It was such a great dress for the occasion and I received so many compliments on it! The exact one is sold out, but I linked to some other great options below.
More SXM posts are on the way - I'll try to keep you virtually warm during these cold months!
