Merry Christmas friends and fellow travelers!! Are you some where chilly and snowy today? Then take a break to the islands with this BVI destination wedding inspiration shoot to warm you up!
Today’s inspiration shoot takes place in the British Virgin Islands on the white sands of Sandy Spit. The collaboration between Lindsay Vann Photography and By Emily B owner Kristin Burgess was meant to capture the Caribbean in a whole new way. Kristin of By Emily B explained the style and tropical wedding details created for the day.
“We wanted the shoot to have a relaxed, castaway, bohemian vibe so as to inspire brides to take a unique approach to their destination wedding. We wanted to encourage brides to seek out unique and alternative locations, as well as transportation to those venues. We also approached the shoot as if it were a sunrise/morning wedding, serving donuts and pastries alongside a mimosa bar.”
“Utilizing the Kekoa, a spectacular 50-foot catamaran available for weddings, the duo sailed from St. John with all of their supplies, staff, and models. Every item seen in this shoot was transferred via dinghy to Sandy Spit, an uninhabited, tiny slice of sand located between Jost Van Dyke and Tortola in the British Virgin Islands.”
“Sandy and salty for most of the day, the team had the time of their lives shooting in this spectacular location.”
“A pop up floral studio aboard the Kekoa allowed By Emily B. staff the space to create bouquets and flower crowns, while an adorable bride, bridesmaid, and groom were simply styled for a bohemian, castaway shoot on the island.”
“Breakfast foods and mimosas with papaya and orange juice were served, while lanterns, fringe, and sparkling trim hung from the trees above, swaying in the perfect ocean breeze.”
“A table made of spray painted palettes was simply set in a small, shady nook on the islet.”
“Utilizing this location was a challenge, but a perfect test to see if it was possible. And it was, The By Emily B / Lindsay Vann Photography partnership now plans to work in conjunction with the Kekoa to plan unforgettable and unique Caribbean weddings with a similar flair.”
