Well guys, we did it! Our first destination wedding by plane was a success! Sandals Grande Antigua was absolutely beautiful, almost as beautiful as our couple, Mike and Nicole :) They had such a fun group of friends too, and their family was the best! We had such glorious weather the entire time. Perfect temperature in the shade and a constant breeze and if you wanted the sun beating down on you there was no shortage of that. This was actually my (Julia's) first time being in the Caribbean and the rain showers were weird..lol. It would sprinkle for a minute, back to glorious skies, and it even down poured at one time.. meanwhile I'm the only one running for cover as I look up and realize no one else cares. Clearly I'm from Jersey!
The ceremony couldn't have been more perfect. When Mike got up to the alter he started running towards the ocean, lol! That gave everyone a good laugh :) Mike's patience for portraits was slim (what guy's isn't), but he was such a good sport to give us what we needed for Nicole, and he loved the candids which we were able to get plenty of since it was such a laid back wedding (everything and everyone was on "island time" which I've learned is actually a real thing). We could not have asked to spend this weekend with better people!
Take a look at some of the highlights from this New Jersey couple's wedding in the Caribbean at Sandals Grande Antigua!

We started off the wedding weekend with the rehearsal dinner complete with a fire dancer..what! This dude was sick, literally drenching his body in flames but the coolest shot is posted below..there was just too many!
