Longshadow Ranch Winery Rustic Spring Wedding from Theresa Bridget Photography

"My favorite part of our wedding was the way the music brought it all together. While all the details were in place, the music and DJ truly set the tone. For so long I have imagined the moment when I walked down the aisle, when Matt and I would be presented as a married couple at the reception, and being able to look across the room when a certain song is played and look at a friend or family member and just know that everything about the day is just..right. My heart is overwhelmed with the feelings and memories that rush back when I hear certain songs- "Mine" by Taylor Swift, "Honeybee" by Blake Shelton and our first dance- "When you got a good thing" by Lady Antebellum. 

Our wedding day was just as much about us as it was about every single person in the room. Each person played an important role in our lives. I will never forget the moment my best friend of 21 years gave her Maid of Honor Speech, or sharing my father-daughter dance with my grandpa, step father and officiant. Matt and I can happily say that we soaked it all in and enjoyed every moment of that day. While it flew by, the memories are lasting." -bride & groom

Honeymooned in: Sandals Resort in St. Lucia 

About their honeymoon: On our honeymoon, we did everything under the sun! Some highlights include zip lining through the rain forest, driving dune buggies around the island and taking a volcanic mud bath. What we enjoyed the most was having the flexibility to do adventurous excursions or relax under a private cabana for the day. There was never a dull moment and we could always find an activity to suit our mood. The Sandals Grande St. Lucian Resort is an all-inclusive resort and it was wonderful not having to worry about drinks or food. I would highly recommend St. Lucia as a honeymoon location! I would highly recommend the “Wet and Wild” tour as that allows you to get a glimpse of all the island has to offer in one day! We went on this tour on our second day on the island and it was perfect because we were able to determine early on, what we wanted to spend our time doing! A few “must do’s” are zip lining, volcanic mud bath, try their signature drink- “Rum Punch” and renting a private cabana to relax beachside. You cannot go to St. Lucia without seeing the famous Pitons! They are beautiful!
