Malea + Eric - A West Indies Wedding

Malea + Eric definitely know how to celebrate! The couple invited some of their closest friends and family to the beautiful West Indies to spend multiple days of fun in the sun at the Four Seasons Nevis.  Our crew had the wonderful opportunity to tag along to capture this weekend of events, doing both photography and videography. 

Guests all arrived at various times throughout the week, but the party officially kicked off on Thursday night at a Welcome Reception hosted at the Four Seasons.  Here, Malea + Eric were able to greet friends and family, kick back and enjoy the evening's cool breeze.  Friday morning a group of guests and the groomsmen hit the green to play one of Nevis' world renowned golf courses. Other guests took Friday to relax at the beach, go to the spa, or explore the island.  

Friday night's rehearsal dinner was at Golden Rock, a quaint lush, mountaintop garden.  The inn has 11 guest rooms and a restaurant that were built in the 1800s. The location was immaculate and the food was delicious. Everyone had an excellent time dining together in this picturesque environment.

Saturday morning our crew got up at 5am to capture some stunning shots of the sun rising over the island's volcano. We then took some fun shots of the wedding dress at different locations around the resort.  From there on out, we spent the entire day with the bridal party.  For the formal pictures we were able to travel around the island to some beautiful spots, including the Four Season's historic Sugar Mill and Montpelier Plantation & Beach.

The ceremony went just as planned with the beautiful sun setting over the ocean as friends and family watched Mr. and Mrs. Reising say "I do". After the ceremony we captured some amazing shots of the sun setting on the beach.  Then, the party went next level, as the couple served top-notch food and drinks, with a local band who knew how to keep the dance floor rockin'. 

Malea + Eric invited all of their guests (and our crew) to join them on an 80-foot catamaran for a snorkeling trip on Sunday morning.  We traveled to a beautiful reef to check out some of its unique aquatic life.  Our time on the boat was met with a lively crew who kept the good times rolling.  After snorkeling, there was a catered lunch on the boat, and then we headed back to Nevis to say farewell.

We were able to capture a lot of wonderful pictures and video during this trip. Below is a sample of a few shots from each day.  Hope you enjoy the preview and look for an updated blog, with a video coming soon.  

Congratulations Malea + Eric!
