Destination weddings are full of surprises for brides and vendors alike. When a client contacts Q Studio, we really never know what we are going to get. 90% of the communication and meetings with destination clients occurs by email or phone. It is such a treat to finally put faces to names, voices, and personalities. When Shawanna and Frederick contacted Q Studio, we were pleasantly surprised and excited to find out that they wanted to do a trash the dress session directly following the ceremony. We LOVE Trash the Dress or TTD sessions!!!
When we met for the first time we had such a great time sharing stories and getting to know one another. Frederick is a diehard Brooklynite and Shawanna, a demure southern bell. We had a great time discussing family, life on St. Croix, and of course the wedding. Originally they wanted to have a private romantic ceremony with just the two of them. However, once their children caught wind of this idea, their romantic getaway quickly turned into a family vacation. One question I always ask my clients is, Why St. Croix? For Shawanna and Frederick they really wanted to do something different. For them a Caribbean destination wedding and trashing the dress represented that for them.
We had a blast the day of the wedding! Shawanna and Frederick’s children made the day complete. When you do what I do you have the privilege of hearing a lot of vows. Listening to Shawanna and Frederick’s vow so much of their love and commitment extends out of the love they both have not only for each other, but their children as well. It was a truly beautiful scene. Accompanied with the TTD session I was in photography heaven!
