We had been looking forward to this wedding for months! Not only was it a destination wedding, but the Jan and Kurt were the kind of couple that we could easily become good friends with, and their wedding was bound to be awesome. We weren’t wrong.
The day started out with a buzz of excitement as everyone got ready at the home of Kurt’s parents. Jan got to get ready in the “Fairy Room”, one of the most perfect bridal prep rooms I’ve had the pleasure to shoot in. Add the beautiful bride to the mix, and each moment was absolutely picture perfect.
Speaking of fairies, Jan also shares a love of all things fantasy, and Kurt took full advantage of that when planning his proposal to her, taking her to see Hogwarts (GHA!) and then to Disney World, somewhere she had always wanted go! Jan was excited and remembers the experience of being in line to see the Little Mermaid, and seeing Kurt’s parents look over several times, with big smiles. Kurt cleverly pointed to her Minnie earrings she was wearing, saying that’s probably what all the fuss was about. As they get to the front of the line, Jan turns to face Kurt, and there he is, on one knee.
We fell in love with this couple, and their simple excitement to spend the rest of their lives together. Everything about their day was so calm, so authentic, and wonderfully sweet. Sometimes all you need is your closest friends, and a beautiful view, to create an incredible wedding day experience. Maybe get your best friend to officiate, and bam! A wedding day filled with just your closest friends (and some discreet photographers, unobtrusively snapping away 😉 )
We were so honored to be a part of their wedding, and couldn’t have wished for a friendlier, more welcoming family to work with. Intimate weddings can be so unique and beautiful, and everyone really came together to make this day a perfect day.
Jan and Kurt, we wish you the best of the world, tons of laughter, lots of adventures, and just the most awesome lives together. Thank you for letting us be a part of your big day…
