Despite the tropical storm rain showers earlier in the day, there ended up just a quick sprinkle right at sunset, for Jason and Saikal’s intimate elopement on Honeymoon Island and the most beautiful sunset! It was nothing short of magical!
This sweet couple met online and when Jason was traveling in Saikal’s home country of Kyrgyzstan. There was instant chemistry + connection between the two! When I connected with them after Saikal inquired with me regarding photographing their intimate beach elopement, we did a video chat and it was so evident the love and devotion they had for each other. I was so excited to get to document their special wedding day! A fun fact though, is that they actually had a few weddings! One was in Kyrgystan, one was just a courthouse, but Saikal really wanted a beach wedding in Florida to celebrate with Jason’s family, so now they were finally going to make it happen!
As I mentioned earlier, we did end up with some tropical storm rain earlier in the day, but the clouds gave way and the rain stopped for their special ceremony. While we didn’t end up having the ceremony on the beach (we chose a covered pavilion instead), we did get to do some magic photos of the pair after their ceremony on the beach and I am obsessed with the photos that we got of the newlyweds! We even got to see a beautiful rainbow during photos! Below are some of my favorite images from their intimate elopement on Honeymoon Island. Enjoy!
