Destination Wedding Photography

Destination wedding photography is something I dream of every summer. You see, I absolutely LOVE what I do, and where I live. However every June through September I get the itch. The itch to travel, the itch to see and experience something entirely new all while escaping the heat and humidity that blankets Florida. I was beyond honored when Cecilia reached out to me to see if I would photograph her wedding in Stockholm, Sweden. What?!?! Stockholm? Like Europe? Yup! Have passport, will travel 🙂

Besides the fact that Stockholm is one of the most beautiful cities in the world, it was the people I traveled with who really made it a dream wedding. Cecilia’s family and wedding guests were extremely accommodating to all of us visitors. They were proud to explain their history, the traditions, and their ways. And I’m not going to lie, being blonde, I felt like I was amongst my people!

On the actual wedding day Brian and Cecilia chose to see each other before the ceremony. Family photos followed their first look. And then Cecilia surprised Brian with a vintage car to take them around the city for photographs with the final destination being Stockholm City Hall. Their ceremony was my absolute FAVORITE wedding ceremony I have ever been a part of. You see, only parents, grandparents and siblings are allowed in the room {think old world castle room} while it is taking place. The service is brief but very meaningful. Once they are married the family celebrates with hugs and cheers to all.  The rest of the guests line the stairs outside city hall and greet the newlyweds as the exit the grand building.

From there, the boat called Stromma took all guests along the archipelagos of Sweden. The scenery was stunning, the food was amazing, and the amount of toasts {or should I say skoal} we partook in was ungodly. I loved every second of it.  I felt beyond honored to have been invited to Stockholm to capture this couples amazing wedding. And even more exciting is that Destination I do featured their big day as well!!!

Below is the link to the feature as well as all the international vendors I had the pleasure of working with!
