Amanda + Brad....Dance Party USA

 Justin Enco Live

 Friendly Dancers :)   ;)
 Love ya Skip


Sipping on a adult beverage in the middle of the British & U.S Virgin islands you will find Amanda and Brad right about now! In a few short hours I'm confident they will make their way to Woody's bar as their sun-kissed faces hit the worlds best happy hour. It's where you have no choice but to kick off your flip flops and intake as much run as you possibly can. It feels only natural and finally alone, married and having the time of their life!
It's hard to believe that last weekend they got married in one of my most favorite places in Boca Raton (Broken Sounds Country Club) The party was kind of intimate, hence the exotic dancing, closeness and fearless friendly dancers. It could have lasted into the weehhheee hours of the morning.
I feel so lucky to have been there to capture such a monumental time in their lives...it's been a long time coming. There ceremony was extra special as for they read their own vows while their hands were shaking, I couldn't help but admire the golden light come across the back of the golf course as tears emerged from Amanda's eyes. Their best friends filled the audience and all I saw was smiles :)
Thank you to all the guests for letting me get the shots I know you have already forgotten due to the great bar and amazing food!  It was pretty epicm one crazy fun, admirable, fancy and special day!
Cheers to Amanda & Brad. Enjoy St. John, I kind of want to get married now so I can stay at Canel Bay and enjoy the island in love. Thank you.

Jamaica + A Wedding Paradise + Katie & ADAM

Thursday I woke up on an island....paradise. The mountains framed the turquoise Caribbean sea as the rain fell. Of course the rain was followed by a rainbow. Just before the rehearsal I realized, rain or shine, this place isssssss heaven. I shoot in the Caribbean often but I must say that Jamaica has a special place in my soul.
Working with Katie & Adam was like a dream. Their personalities are amongst the most outgoing which made this destination paradise perfect for them to get married. It took me about five minutes after meeting them in person there at the Iberostar lobby over a glass of wine to think; there really is no better job in the world that possesses great individuals who are madly in love, that have invited me, an artist into their lives to capture the laughter, smiles and stories so such a personal level.  But then again, they are from St. Louis! So there you go....cheers to an amazing couple. The sweetest. I want to say a special thank you to all of their friends and family who showed me endless kindness, love and some killer dance moves. I feel so lucky to have been there with you all to celebrate!
