The festivities began with a spirited Sangeet, a night where families blended in a kaleidoscope of dance, song, cheer, and love.Β  It set the stage for what promised to be an extraordinary celebration of two families coming together.Β  The air was filled with laughter and joy, setting the tone for the day ahead.

On the big day, Alyson was surrounded by her radiant bride tribe, and Vinay stepped out of a magazine cover with his dapper groom squad.Β  As the sun painted the Jamaican sky with hues of warmth,Β  the anticipation was palpable as Alyson made her way up the aisle, and Vinay eagerly awaited her at the altar, where they exchanged vows in a ceremony that echoed with emotion.

Their post-wedding shoot was amazing as the golden hour brought with it a soft glow that completely surrounded them.Β  You’ll understand when you see these images.

The couple’s first dance as husband and wife was serenaded by the soulful live performance of Tessanne Chin, adding a touch of magic to the evening. The night unfolded with a diverse mix of music genres, including Indian beats, reggae vibes, and hip-hop etc.

Alyson and Vinay’s wedding was a testament to love, culture, and a seamless blend of traditions. Every moment, from the Welcome Party, Sangeet, to the surprise Brazilian dancers, was a reflection of the couple’s unique journey. With my wife Kimmi’s (π’•π’‰π’†π’Šπ’“ π’˜π’†π’…π’…π’Šπ’π’ˆ 𝒑𝒍𝒂𝒏𝒏𝒆𝒓 @π‘«π’“π’‚π’ˆπ’π’π’‡π’π’š_𝑬𝒙𝒑) expert touch, talent and expertise, their day unfolded like a dream, leaving everyone in awe of such a beautiful, love filled, perfect day.

Cheers to a lifetime filled with joy, laughter, and endless love.

Congratulations, Alyson and Vinay ❀︎ Welcome to the Family.

This blog has not disappointed. I love the colours and the lighting (the design itself and the natural light). I also love DWP’s usual treat of what I call, β€œThe Veil colliding with Nature”. Together, with Kimmi’s exceptional planning and execution and DWPs exceptional artistry, I was able to experience the joy, vibrancy and deep love connection this couple and their families share.
