I was photographing a beachfront rental property for RE/MAX Cayman Islands when Tom’s mom, Katy, phoned up. Tom, it seems, had popped the question just that morning and Katy wanted to give them a portrait session as an engagement present. I said “Certainly. Love to do it”. and urged them to go ahead with the photos that afternoon as the weather was beautiful but expected to turn bad overnight. Katy was right. Morgan looks like a supermodel and Tom looks pretty good on camera too. This was Tom and Morgan’s first time being photographed professionally and I have to say it was fun for all of us. The photos were made at Tom’s family home on the beach in Northside Grand Cayman.
This happy couple were both born and raised in Arkansas and both went to the University of Arkansas. Although they had several mutual friends they never met at school. After graduating, both went to work for Walmart Corporate Headquarters and their paths finally crossed. They’ve been together almost 4 years and now live in Seattle. Friends and family traveled from Arkansas and Texas to join them at their Grand Cayman Wedding!
They chose the Cayman Islands as their wedding venue because they felt that it had everything they needed – beautiful island feel, nice people, and a reputation for safety. They felt that, with the excellent vendors in the Cayman Islands, they had the opportunity to personalize their event more than other island destinations. The bride had also visited the island once with her family when she was younger and remembered thinking the water was the most beautiful/clear/spectacular she had ever seen.
They wanted their wedding before summer and the night of April 19th seemed perfect as it was a full moon! This fun wedding took place at Tiki Beach, Grand Cayman. The event was planned by Meg from Octopus Event and the flowers were provided by Del from The Flower Dell. CAUTION!!! Hard partying features prominently!
