Josh and I met Nate and Lauren when they moved into the townhouse complex we lived in a couple of years ago, and when Lauren called us last fall to ask if we'd be willing to travel to the Grand Palladium in Montego Bay, Jamaica for their destination wedding, we were ecstatic. When we began our business back in 2010, we had no idea that photography would take us to such a beautiful place, and we were so grateful for the opportunity.

Nate and Lauren are two of the most fun-loving people I've ever met, and their destination wedding was nothing short of that. The week was filled with beaches and pools, fruity drinks and Red Stripe, dancing, "Ya mon", and gut-wrenching laughter. These two were married in a true paradise surrounded by some of the best friends and family anyone could ever ask for.

Nate and Lauren included some of their favorite treats from their home states and grits from their now home in North Carolina in welcome bags for each guest. Tastykakes and Better Made Chips made for a great pre-wedding snack.

In an interesting turn of events and due to having a difficult time hearing the officiant, Nate took Lauren to be his "awful wedded wife". Everyone, even the bride, got a good laugh out of it and it was a running joke for the remainder of the trip.
