Wanting the best of both worlds, Laura and Josh opted for an adventurous location where they could both elope and honeymoon! Their St. Lucia elopement checked off all of their boxes for an adventurous location with a little bit of everything – mountains, water, and jungle vibes. Laura looked like a bohemian princess in her Free People dress and a flower crown crafted by Samuel Franklin, while Josh went for a classic yet casual vibe with his rolled-up sleeves and floral tie. These two newlyweds explored St. Lucia with From the Daisies for fun, wild, and carefree couple portraits!

I think our overall wedding day fashion could be described as relaxed and a Bohemian-Indie look. My wedding dress was so comfortable, how I envisioned it, stylistically, and convenient for our hike. My floral crown and bouquet were able to emphasize the tropical vibe that the island presented, and this also catered to my style of the Bohemian-Indie vibe. My Steve Madden boots were extremely comfortable and convenient, and I enjoyed the fact that we were both able to wear boots to have that more relaxed, yet adventurous feel.
The most memorable part of the day was reciting our vows and exchanging our rings in the middle of the Pitons, surrounded by the most amazing scenes of nature
There are so many favorite photos. I think ours would have to be of our kiss, on the top of the mountain, right after our vows and rings were exchanged. This really captured the feel of happiness and victory that we both felt.
We wanted a destination that also acted as our honeymoon. Mountains were important to me (Laura), while water was important to Josh. This place offered both settings!
Working with our photographer, Stephanie, was so much fun and so easy. She made our day that much more special. I couldn’t imagine having anyone else come along this journey with us. Her creativity and vibe matched ours so perfectly, and we are so grateful for how she was able to capture this day and our love
At the end of it all, this special day should be all about the couple. Be brave, and do what feels right and comfortable for the both of you.

We wanted our ceremony to be adventurous and extremely intimate. We knew being alone and a part of nature would allow for this as well as a relaxed feel, but also we could dress our best.
