We just got back early yesterday morning from sunny Panama where I was ecstatic to photograph Steven & Chelsea’s RIU Panama Destination Wedding! One word for y’all… AMAZING! It was an amazing week and I’m still basking in the afterglow of spending a week in this paradise. I visited Panama once before (10 years ago), but this time with Chelsea, Steve and so many of their closest family and friends was a totally different experience for me. If I’m being 100% honest, the RIU Panama didn’t even exist back then! This trip to this beautiful RIU Panama Destination Wedding was so stunning, and honestly it was mostly the amazing company that we had there. Chad & I met so many great people from the group of travellers there for the wedding. In addition to that, the weather was perfectly hot, hot, HOT (like 35 degrees daily), not a drop of rain, and an endless supply of entertainment, food and beverages. We seriously had such a special time with this awesome group.
Celebrations began all the way back on January 29th for Steve & Chelsea. They arrived in Panama almost a week prior to the rest of their 40 guests to get things organized before the week long party commenced, and as we all boarded our flight home on Friday night, I’m pretty sure Chelsea & Steve were preparing to head out on a multiple day nautical yacht cruise around Panama, Columbia, and so on. I’m a wee bit envious on how these two have been able to make their wedding a 3 week adventure!
Chelsea & Steve, I am seriously so very grateful for this super sweet opportunity to share in your wedding celebrations at the RIU in Panama. Everything was absolutely stunning and we enjoyed the entire experience, especially spending time with your friends and family, so very much. You really have always made me feel like part of the family :). Thank you for being you, and thank you for letting Chad & I share in your journey to Panama and this important life event that we will never forget. Much love to you both :).
