Paige + Angelo | Wedding | Ambergris Caye, Belize

I am getting very used to Belize nowadays.  How could I not?  Island life is the way to go.  We can all learn a bit how those wonderful folks down there live.  Ever heard of island time?  Everything happens when it happens.  You just gotta roll with it.  I like the way they think down there.  Things are slower.  Less stressful.  Oh, and quite beautiful if you ask me. This was my fifth time there to document weddings and I just never get tired of stepping off that plane and taking my first deep breath of sea air.

As our hero Jimmy Buffett says- “It’s a medicine no doctor can prescribe”.

I am pretty sure all of those things went into consideration when Paige and Angelo decided to get married there.   Boy I am sure glad they did,  and more importantly glad they asked me come along and document it.  We had a blast.  My good friend Janine out of Omaha and her husband got to get their first stamp in their passports and came along to help out for a few days.

Paige and Angelo are such incredibly nice, caring, and thoughtful people.  I had to tell Paige at one point to stop apologizing to me and just do her thing.  Such great hospitality that the couple and their family and friends extending to us.  It is so much fun to do small weddings like this when we are there for a few days with everyone as we get to really know all the guests and just feel like a part of the family.  A few of Paige’s family members had never been to Belize and possibly out of the country;I really enjoyed watching them experience every minute of this joyous occasion and experience.

Thanks for letting us be a part of it!

This place is incredible.  Rum punch drinks were waiting for everyone as they walked down the dock.

Guests relaxed, ate and danced the night away.

Paige is really close with her mom and her siblings.

The beauty of destination weddings.  This is what you do on your wedding day.

One of my favorite images of the day.  I love finding moments like this.  This couple was walking down the beach and stopped to watch the ceremony.  I just watched them watching  the ceremony and found it great.  I just felt like they were reliving their wedding all over again.

The rain rolled in right after the ceremony.  Usually a bummer for beach weddings but it made for very dramatic portraits.

They had a very impromptu first dance and I loved how intimate it was.  Here is grandma watching.
