This tropical beach wedding at Sandals Royal Caribbean in Montego Bay, Jamaica was photographed by Hannah Bjorndal on Saturday, June 30, 2018. Hannah is a destination wedding photographer available for destination weddings worldwide, including weddings at all-inclusive resorts.
What a joy it was to celebrate with Kim & Matt at their Sandals Royal Caribbean wedding last Saturday! Crystal blue water, white beaches and tropical palm trees surrounded us for the most perfect Jamaican setting imaginable.
While we spoke a lot on the phone and through email, Saturday was my first time meeting this sweet couple! Wow, do I wish I had met them sooner – they are the best! I absolutely loved being a part of this sweet wedding day!
Other than the too-beautiful-for-words setting, three things really stood out to me about this wedding day. Firstly, the beautiful bride, Kim, is one of the kindest and most genuine people I have ever met. With all the craziness of the wedding day (like any wedding day!), Kim was calm, joyful and incredibly kind to all the people around her. It’s no wonder that her friends and family speak so highly about her abilities as a teacher!
The second thing that stood out to me was how truly in love Matt & Kim are. Matt gave Kim a sentimental, romantic & incredibly thoughtful gift that emphasized all the reasons he loved her. Kim smiled and laughed for the longest time looking through this gift, as if no one else in the room was there. As a wedding photographer, I obviously see many head-over-heels in-love couples, but I was so moved by this wedding and this couple in particular!
Lastly, I was moved by Kim’s incredibly loving family. The wedding was intimate, with just the closest of family and friends in attendance. This tight-knit community, highlighted by toasts from Kim’s dad and sister, clearly love each other so much! Again, I was SO moved by this love and felt honored that they welcomed me in so kindly and generously!
I am so thrilled to share my favorites with you guys!!!
Matt & Kim, from the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU for choosing me as your wedding photographer!
