Candice (Cindy) and Brendan

October 30, 2007

Candice and Brendan, what an easy going couple. They were up to anything. I don’t know if you’ve noticed that in the title I’ve placed the name Cindy between brackets. For some reason upon replying to Candice’s first email I’ve called her Cindy and every now and then I still slip and do the same. For some strange reason I insist on calling her Cindy. Thank Gosd that she’s so easy going she just laughs hard anytime I do it.

Candice and Brendan know each other for 19 years but it was up till about 3 years ago they realised the sparkle in each other’s eyes. So they started to date. They love to Travel and in the 3 years they’ve been to Aruba 5 times.Brendan ask her to marry him at the lighthouse, so they’ve decided what better place to get married. They had a very nice ceremony and great guests, 60 in total. They can party. They all stayed at the Marriot and had there ceremony and reception at the Rennaissance Island.

Candice and Brendan whenever you’re back just know that you have some new found friends here on the island. You guys are absolutely great. Keep Sweet and remember never to be part of a statistic. Just remember life has it’s ups and downs but it will work if you work it. Giving up is the easiest thing to do.

Blessings,

Bryan Morris

Mel & Joe

On September 29, 2007

A perfect Saturday evening on the pristine powder white beaches of Aruba, Melanie Harris and Joel Cooper promised to remain at each others side until death do them part at the Eagle Beach. It was a very casual setting. They were accompanied by their close relatives and loved ones. Rev Gibson was the officiant. They were all smiles the entire evening with each other. See for yourself in the images. Melanie and Joel when the not so nice seasons approach you, just holds hands look in each others eyes and smile just as you’ve smilled on your weding day. Know that those dark seasons are nothing but seasons. We all go through them from time to time. Aruba Weddings were the wedding planners for this evening, who did a great job in setting this up.

Thy and Tommy

September 18, 2007

Her name is pronouced “Tee”.

Destiny brought her to Sweden as a little girl from Vietnam, where she grew into a beautiful young woman.

Faith had it that as she grew up she would work in the restaurant where she met Tommy. It was love at first sight. Tommy became a regular customer of that restaurant just to stop by and see Thy.

After requesting Thy’s hand in marraige from her parents. He proposed to her about a month later on bended knee in a restaurant in Bastad, a popular summer retreat in Sweden.

The wedding plans began and after consulting some travel experts in Sweden they were advised to come to Aruba. After them doing their own research, their unanimous decision was Aruba.

They tied the knot on Sept 10, 2007 at the Bucuti Beach Resort . Nashette, the wedding planner did a marvelous job at preparing everything as the couple raved about not being able to ask for more. These guys are so in love you can see it in every shot. They were just so natural in front of the camera and you could really see their emotions through the images.

Thy and Tommy, may you live a happy life together. May God bless your marraige. We’re right here anxiously waiting for you to come back to our island, Aruba.

Blessings,

Bryan Morris

Good to know!

September 11, 2007

I was just using this website a while ago to check sunset in relation to some upcoming wedding times and I’ve decided that this will be very good information to post. Advice from a photographer of quite a few years already with a cuople hundred weddings behind him.

If you have plan on getting maried around sunset, check this site www.timeanddate.com. Here you’ll get the accurate time of sunset. Schedule your ceremony one hour before sunset. This will give you ample time for the ceremony that is ussually at least 20 minutes and then you have about 40 minutes to take pictures in the sunset. Much more can be accomplished if your not in the middle of the ceremony during sunset. Whenever scheduling your beach ceremony keep this in mind.

Blessings,

Bryan Morris
