"It's hard to beat the view from the top of St. John in the US Virgin Islands, which is exactly where this Valentine's Day destination wedding took place!
Calichi at Picture Point, a new and incredibly luxurious resort in St. John, was the setting for Brayden and Josh's nuptials. Shortly after saying "I do," the entire wedding party rode safari taxis down to Cruz Bay, where they boarded an elegant catamaran for a lovely evening at sea with tropical cocktails and a delicious selection of hors d'oeuvres.
Brayden is a ray of light to everyone around her. Her joyful, incredibly kind demeanor influenced the entire day. When a downpour of epic proportions rolled up right after the ceremony, she was all smiles and was totally content to relax and wait until it passed. This set the tone for a laid back and joy-filled celebration. It truly made all the difference in the world!
One highlight that has stuck with me is Josh reading vows to Brayden's son, Finley. His intentional words to his adopted son were so moving - there wasn't a dry eye in the entire group. The rainbow after the storm was also a perfectly-timed gift, and cruising around the islands at sunset was nothing short of epic.
This was an entirely unforgettable celebration and definitely one of my all-time favorite destination weddings!" - Hannah
