For their elopement Brent&Julia came all the way from Portland, USA to the island of Korcula in the Adriatic sea. We wondered around the city streets of this amazing city and when time came to say “I do” we boarded a boat and went to a tiny nearby island… nothing but rocks, wind and sea all around us. Thank you B&J…wish you all the best on your 6 month long honeymoon through Europe…
Kendra and Spencer pick breathtaking location above Dubrovnik for their wedding. Park Orsula is simply unique place to say I do! As in past they spend some holidays in Dubrovnik and when they decided to get married, they couldn’t think of any other place that would be more fitting for the big day.
They focused on good music, good food, and good views – the sorts of things that would really stick in their guest’s memories.
Dubrovnik is really magical place, full of historical heritage and as one of the best preserved medieval walled cities it’s a great stage for wedding photography…Big thanks to Kendra and Spencer for inviting me to be witness of this amazing wedding day…
History, charm, beauty, and love were only a few highlights of Darina and Chris’ wedding on the small island of Vis, a small Croatian island set off the coast in the Adriatic Sea.
The wedding took place in the town of Vis, named after the island itself, and was a perfect backdrop to celebrate a June wedding. Darina andChris had visited the quiet, serene Mediterranean island in the past and knew it would make an unforgettable location for their wedding. The entire event made for the perfect wedding story that captured one of the most special events in their lives on this magical place.
They day began at the old summer home of Ivan Mestrovic, one of the most renowned sculptors in Croatia. The beautiful vaulted ceilings and eclectic mix of furniture and textures with a lot of natural lighting from the old home, each scene reflected the lively, happy atmosphere of the day. The reception was also held at the same area. The beautiful garden was adorned with blankets for a casual picnic-like event where friends, family, and each guest could relax and celebrate the event.
The ceremony for Chris and Darina took place off the eastern port of Vis in the stunning St. Cyprian and Justin’s Church. Originally built in the early 15th century, the history and old-world beauty was the perfect contrast to the newly formed bond of the lovely couple. The Vis wedding photography from the event played off of the old-world Baroque feel and design of the church, with its intricate ceiling and highly adorned dais.
No Vis wedding would be complete without capturing the stunning environment that the island has to offer. Dinner after the wedding was held at Konoba Lola, a restaurant and dining area in the heart of Vis. From the open air atmosphere and beautiful garden of Konoba Lola to the nearby docks that allow ferry access to the island, the outdoor elements are what tied this Vis wedding photography together.
With a mixture of stunning scenery, historical architecture, and a loving couple, the June wedding of Darina and Chris on the island of Vis was nothing short of magical.
When I think about Stacy and Ernest‘s wedding, I think about the amazing symbiosis of wild nature and such an intimate act of love as a wedding is. They got married on the highest peak of Hvar island, in the full beauty of Indian summer…The sky was just above them, one could almost touch the clouds, and the Adriatic Sea was all around as a quiet witness …
I remember that I had strange feeling, being with them on that cliff on Saint Nikola; on one hand I felt like an intruder, as if that moment was reserved just for the two of them!
But at the same time I was thankful, as I knew that I was part of something so beautiful and unique, a really special wedding to photograph! The scenery of this place is so inspiring that this cute couple flew all the way from Canada to Croatia to elope to this amazing part of Hvar.
Thank you for inviting me to be part of that beauty!
With this post I want to conclude last year’s weddings and look forward to new adventures that await me in this year…
