Sunset beach wedding in Aruba – Ashley & Shawn

Ashley’s favorite place is Aruba. This was her third trip there, and it was certainly the charm. This time, she was there to marry the love of her life, Shawn. They took the entire week off with friends and family to stay at the Holiday Inn Aruba Resort, taking part in water sports and relaxing in the days leading up to the event.
The wedding day was gorgeous. A breeze filled the air, the sun beamed in the sky, and there was no chance of rain on the forecast. Shawn and Ashley prepared in separate suites at the resort. The girls prepped their hair and make-up, while the guys toasted to future endeavors.

Ashley and Shawn chose to take part in a intimate first look. Shawn was so excited as he turned around to be revealed to his bride. Ashley smiled back at him and greeted him warmly with a hug. The pair took photos with the bridal party and family before the ceremony to ensure more time spent with them at their reception.
The ceremony took place on the beach at sunset. The sky began to glow with gorgeous color as the two exchanged custom vows. Both were a bit emotional during the event, but could not stop smiling. As they kissed to seal their commitment, guests and beach-goers alike cheered for them.

In true party fashion, the entire bridal party danced their way into the outdoor reception. Ashley and Shawn showed everyone up with extended dance moves, almost cut off by a passing iguana. After a few short toasts and dinner, everyone hit up the floor and got down. Everyone remained there on the dance floor, til the end of the night, with the newlyweds.
