Bride & groom kissing

Cruise Ship Wedding

My good friends Tony & Larissa both live on The Big Island of Hawaii but chose to have their wedding on The Royal Carribean Independence of the Seas. A 4-day cruise from Fort Lauderdale, Florida to Cozumel, Mexico. Since Tony and Larissa’s family live on the mainland, it was a way for them to spend some quality time with family and friends before heading off to Europe for their honeymoon.

The wedding ceremony took place onboard the ship before sailing so that non-cruising guests could still attend the wedding ceremony and reception. Larissa’s big brother Ryan officiated the ceremony. Ryan’s love and respect for his little sister and new brother-in-law was evident throughout the wedding. After the ceremony, the guests headed to the reception to continue the celebration with the new bride and groom.

After dinner, I was able to sneak the bride, groom, and bridal party out to the deck for some beautiful sunset wedding portraits.
