Smile Vow Renewal Planning & Trash the Dress Photos-So Excited!

My husband and I will be celebrating our 1st wedding anniversary in Aruba on August 19th and decided to have an intimate, beachside, informal Vow Renewal and champagne toast, followed by a "trash the dress" photo shoot ( I have really wanted to do this and can't wait!) and a romantic dinner to celebrate.

I contacted Angela from Bella Aruba Photography and Edwina from E2 Events and Celebrations and they promptly, professionally and courteously handled all of the arrangements (Reverend Robert Gibson is performing the ceremony) and we could not be happier! I am a wedding planner in NY and HIGHLY RECOMMEND them to anyone planning a wedding, vow renewal or any other affair requiring their services.

I will post photos afterward and know our 1st Anniversary will better than we imagined because they are such competent, caring and thorough professionals. They are so accommodating and I am grateful to have found them.

Here is their contact information:

Angela
Bella Aruba Photography
bellarubaphoto@yahoo.com

Edwina
E2 Events & Celebrations
edwina.werleman@gmail.com

I hope this information helps some of you planning your special day!

Have a sparkling day!

All the best,

DawnMarie

don't tell me where it will be or we are going to crash it, lol. we will be on the island at that time. i want to see the 'trash the dress' photo shoot. just kidding. we would never crash a wedding someone else's event, but i do think it's a neat idea.

also, thanks for the info and good luck!

LOL- I will post photos after. Thanks for the well wishes! I wanted to do a trash the dress shoot after our wedding, but, didn't want to ruin my gown, so I purchased a more beach appropriate dress and decided to do it for our 1st anniversary, in our favorite place! I thought it would be special and memorable, besides the only other professional pictures we have are from our wedding! I am really looking forward to it.

Where are you staying and how long will you be there?

Hampton Princess,

I just put up a few photos of the Reverend Gibson in Action, on my blog. Check it out and looking forward to crashing your party with Sherry. See you there.

Thanks for the photos- Angela and Edwina are so creative and decided we would do an "Aruba Experience" photos shoot which would encompass us taking photos at various locations on the island (ie, the rough side, Alto Vista Chapel, the Lighthouse, Natural Bridge, etc.) and then ending at sunset on Eagle Beach- I can't wait AND my husband is now getting excited too!

although mangel halto is the best, we rarely get to that area. we do love malmok. certainly not the variety of fish there but the most relaxed snorkeling i have ever done. i am so not picky about where i snorkel. it's all about getting wet and relaxing in the water.
