We got married in the beautiful island of Roatan in Honduras a year ago.
When planning for the details, I envisioned an intimate romantic-theme beach wedding where we would say our vows to the sounds of tranquil waves and the refreshing salty smell of the ocean breeze. I imagined our guests mingling outdoors during the cocktail hour, drinking beers and colorful drinks with live music while enjoying the breath taking views of the gorgeous sunset, then later joining us for an amazing dinner and wine at a long communal table adorned with greenery and pale pink flowers, we would then sweat off the calories with non stop dancing, before being mesmerized by a fire show and end the night with bonfire and stories to share.
The day my husband and I arrived this all seem possible, the weather was perfect and the clear beach waters were stunning however the next day things took on a different turn and a big storm was on its way threatening all of our plans and potentially prevent Antonio’s family from attending, not pleasant news but we decided to embrace it and go with it, there was nothing we could do about the weather and getting married is what mattered the most after all.
In terms of theme, the result was an indoor rustic chic wedding, graced with rain and thunderstorms and full of excitement and emotions. One of our friends came to me and said ” This is the best wedding I’ve been to” – that meant so much to me, because even though it was ultimately about my now husband and I taking this big leap of faith, we wanted to make the long trip enjoyable for our friends as well.
Re-living this days makes me incredibly happy, I hope you enjoy our photos.
