Addison and Gray first vacationed together as a couple in St. John, and when they decided to tie the knot, it made perfect sense to go back to the place where their love for each other and travel first flourished. They set about planning a simple, intimate celebration at Maho Bay, a setting so naturally stunning there was no need to dress it up!
The budget-minded bride scored her favorite Monique Lhuillier lace gown by pre-selling it to another bride via PreOwnedWeddingDresses.com, accessorizing it with luxe silver Jimmy Choo sandals, a J.Crew pearl bracelet and crystal earrings. Bridesmaids wore borrowed blush colored Nicole Miller gowns from Rent the Runway and baubles from Forever 21, while the groomsmen invested in light-colored J.Crew suits and vests, paired with navy anchor socks and brown wingtips.
16 guests–immediately family and their closest friends, who made up the bridal party–stood hand in hand on the beach while Addison and Gray married beneath a palm tree, then toasted the newylweds at Ocean Grill. There to capture each gorgeous moment of the day was Rebekah Westover, whose work the bride had admired for many years (and with very good reason). I'm absolutely thrilled she agreed to share them with me, and I'm certain this beautiful couple relives every moment when they open their wedding album.
