San Diego Wedding Photographers | Temecula Wedding Photographers

We’ve posted some of the events leading up to Stacey & Mike’s gorgeous destination wedding in the Bahamas, but posting the actual wedding day photos has been a challenge because there are just too many for one post. I asked Matt what we should do and he said to just create a long post. When I told him I had 50 images edited just from the first card, he said “Oh!” So what we’ve decided to do is post the wedding day in multiple parts. Soon we will share photos from the ceremony, cocktail hour, reception and all of the gorgeous details that made this wedding complete!

But for today’s post, we thought it was only appropriate to give you a “first look” at their wedding by sharing what happened leading up to the ceremony. Stacey & Mike gave us a lot of time to be creative before the wedding began, including a very emotional first look on the beach where the ceremony took place. All of the months of planning, visiting Nassau, having family visit Nassau to also help with plans, the waiting and dreaming of what the day would be like, the threat of rain on the wedding day, the excitement in the days preceding the wedding – it all came down to this one moment when they remembered what it was all for. It was just the two of them (and a couple of photographers observing from a distance). Matt and I wondered what was going through their minds, but we think that the photos will tell the story.

After the first look, we took a few photos of them together before they relaxed with the wedding party and watched the guests arrive…

    The shoes. And the groom waiting at the “alter”. And the bride and groom in the staircase down below. Those are my hands down favorites. Beautiful photos.
