Pretty sure this is the first time I’ve photographed a wedding on Labor Day. It’s the day before school. So not really the easiest thing for families to attend. And this wedding at Royal Ambassador was definitely a family affair.
Luckily this all inclusive venue provides all the necessities to keep a wedding going smoothly. Gorgeous on-site gazebos for wedding ceremonies. Beautiful grounds and gardens for portraits without straying too far. Options for indoor and outdoor receptions. Throw in an amazing wedding planner / decorator and you have a wedding so perfectly coordinated that things finished early throughout the day.
This is my fourth wedding from this particular group of friends. Eight friends. 4 weddings. Lots of familiar faces at this wedding. They all attend the same church. In fact, the officiant from this wedding has actually conducted all 4 ceremonies as well. And the wedding planner planned 3 of the wedding. Though technically all 4 as she was the bride in one of those cases. Which pretty much means the planning of this wedding was immaculate. For example, it is pretty customary that Jamaican weddings start an hour late. Guests pretty much expect it at this point. So you can imagine everyone’s surprise when this ceremony at Royal Ambassador not only ran on time, but the bride was dressed and ready to go an hour early. Jemima is the planner behind Limitless Events. Be sure to check out her work on Tanisha & Jason’s Tuesday brunch wedding at the Paletta Mansion during a solar eclipse. As well as Novalee & Kareem’s spring showers wedding at Paradise Banquet Hall. And her own wedding at Riviera Banquet.
This is a relatively new service I offer. While many shooters in this industry can transition between photo and video… there are very few who can provide both simultaneously by themselves. It originally started out as an option for couples dealing with Covid guest count restrictions. By having a single photographer who could provide video as well, it opened up the opportunity to invite an additional guest. However this service has decided to stick around long past Covid simply for its convenience. Utilizing video on tripods, I am able to remain free to continue photographing the event as per usual. Video coverage of this event is at the bottom of the page. It includes a full run through of the wedding ceremony. All the vows are uncut so you can remember every word
