As adventure lovers that couldn’t decide between a mountain wedding or a beach wedding, Glendean and Omawali’s Saint Lucia celebration proved couples can have both. With views of the towering Piton Mountain tops and surrounding beaches, La Haut Resort was a naturally dreamy destination ceremony space. From start to finish the couple entrusted wedding planner, Michele Ince, to bring their Piton Mountain wedding vision to life.
Their big day was infused with emotional and touching details that involved important loved ones. The bride was dressed in a modern lace Kitty Chen gown, complete with a snatched classy hairstyle, an eye-catching bridal comb, and a long aisle-worthy veil. Photographer Jelani Lebourne beautifully captured every unforgettable detail that made Glendean and Omawali’s beautiful day one for the books.

A Memorable Piton Mountain Wedding First Look
Our first look was the most memorable part of the day. After 14 months of planning, there was no better feeling than seeing him standing there both speechless and ecstatic. It was an emotional moment and we were fighting back tears. During our first look, we exchanged letters and the words on those letters will forever be as special as our vows.

Using Pinterest As A Planning Tool
Pinterest and vision boards are must use tools during the wedding planning process. We didn’t have a vision for our wedding before getting engaged. Pinterest helped create and clarify our vision to build the most special day that was uniquely ours.
Destination Weddings Rule
Consider having a destination wedding—your friends and family in attendance will thank you for a memorable vacation. The key to a successful destination wedding is finding and building a relationship with a wedding planner.
Honoring Their Marriage With A Unity Ceremony
We personalized our ceremony by asking my sister, who we both adore, to be our co-officiant. It was an honor to have her serve in that role, as she is such a force of positivity and love in our lives. Immediately after our vows and signing our marriage certificate, we wanted our first act as husband and wife to be an act of service. We took turns washing each other’s feet as an act of humility and dedication. This was to model the attitude we will strive to bring into our marriage each and every day.
