Real Wedding: Celebrate in Paradise

Aruba, Jamaica…do you want to take us!? This destination beach wedding at Renaissance Aruba Hotel is giving us island fever! The sun was shining, the water was crystal blue, and the wedding was beautiful. Ben Elsass Photography joined the bride Rachael and groom Bryan on their special wedding getaway in December. What an awesome way to get out of the cold Chicago winter. The wedding day began with the guests and bridal party getting ready with help from Makeup By Bruce Stamper and Styles By L on makeup and hair. ¬†Rachael then slipped into her Yolan Cris wedding gown: she looked absolutely beautiful and the dress was perfect for a beach wedding. Bryan wore a light blue linen shirt and khakis for a laid-back and handsome look. Next step: take a boat to the private island for the ceremony! There was even a special guest appearance by wild flamingos, and they added a great pop of bright pink color to the awesome photos. At the end of the night, wedding goers enjoyed dinner and dancing on the beach, and they got to take home fun party favors by The Left Bank. It was a spectacular celebration.
