Kelsey and Matt knew they would get married on St. Thomas before Matt proposed. Kelsey had fallen in love with the island over the years of vacations and cruises to the gorgeous island, and she knew it would be the perfect spot to celebrate the love she has for Matt with their closest friends and family. Their wedding was a week-long celebration at Villa Serenita — a gorgeous private villa on the island that the locals refer to as the “wedding house”. Every detail was given so much love and thought including all the hand-calligraphed signs, agate place cards, and invitations that Kelsey did.
The morning of the wedding, Kelsey and Matt woke up to rain outside the villa, but by the afternoon, the clouds had parted and the sunshine was out for their destination wedding. Surrounded by 40 of the people who love them most, Kelsey and Matt promised forever in front of the gorgeous turquoise Caribbean water. As the sun dropped for a gorgeous sunset, they danced around the pool and felt the love radiating through the villa. It was the day they dreamed of, and it was so freakin’ special to photograph their Villa Serenita wedding. Kelsey + Matt, I adore you both, and I wish you nothing short of epic adventures, endless love + happiness. Congrats.
