Virgin Islands wedding photography | Stephanie and David say “I Do” on Trunk Bay

 

The excitement of planning a wedding starts much earlier than a girl getting an engagement ring. As a young boy, I can recall the lot of us playing together. It always seemed that we boys were playing some sort of cops and robbers or some super hero stuff and the girls were playing house with tea sets and speaking of when they get married.  This was long before the girls were actually interested in any boy but, even then, at such a young age, it appears that girls knew the importance of that special union. Maybe then his criteria had to be this or that. What ever it was it had to be easy to imagine because, I can not recall any of the girls ever being unhappy in these imaginative relationships/marriages.

Many years later, I still reflect on my memories. I now know that cops and robbers are real and real super heroes are everyday people that are all around us. But a deeper reflection into the childhood games that were played seems to suggest that while we boys were just having fun the girls were actually happy. This happiness I can only guess comes from all of the wonderful qualities that she had given her imaginary spouse, like patience and kindness.

Even then I could see the excitement on their faces and hear the happiness in their voices. These pictures/images I have caught in my minds eye and I still see them today at every wedding, with every bride and very truly happy couple. There is something very magical about the radiance of someone that is really happy. It shows. It’s like they are illuminated from within. This is how I saw Stephanie for the very first time at Villa Corlota on St.John US Virgin Islands. Kind and patient, just like the quoted verse that was written on a board in her wedding and more importantly faithful and strong. Not to break bridal tradition about not seeing the groom, they texted  a quick note to meet and hold hands. While doing so they said a intimate prayer back to back with a brick wall between them. It was very peaceful and humbling. I am very sure that if you were to ask her she would tell you that she always knew it would have been David. Maybe she did not see his face or know his name but there was something about his presence, the way that he looked at her. The way that only he could make her feel…Special.  That very special something that makes David, Stephanie’s special David. No one else on earth could have ever been there but him. It was his destiny…their destiny.

All the best Stephanie and David LL
