Love stories are often written in the most unexpected of places, and for Chelsea and Ryan, their love story unfolded on the high seas. Their unique wedding aboard the majestic "Oasis of the Seas" Royal Caribbean cruise ship was a testament to their love for each other and their shared passion for adventure.
Chelsea and Ryan's love for cruising led them to choose the "Oasis of the Seas" as the perfect backdrop for their wedding day. It was a celebration of love and adventure, set against the breathtaking backdrop of the open sea. As their chosen photographers, we embarked on this exciting journey to capture their special day.
The wedding day began with capturing the groom, Ryan, at the boardwalk. It was a vibrant and fun setting, perfect for capturing the groom with his groomsmen and ring bearers. Laughter and camaraderie filled the air as we documented these special moments.
Next, we moved to Central Park, where Chelsea and her maid of honor, along with the flower girls, shared moments of joy and anticipation. The lush greenery provided a serene and natural backdrop for their photos.
Despite being a small and intimate wedding, with only 25 people in attendance, the love and joy of everyone present were palpable. The ceremony was short but filled with heartfelt vows and promises that brought tears to the eyes of those in attendance.
After the ceremony, the couple and their guests didn't waste a moment. They enjoyed a mini cocktail hour right in the room, savoring the first moments of their marriage surrounded by loved ones. With an hour to spend in the room, we captured family photos that would be cherished for generations.
But the adventure didn't end there. Chelsea and Ryan's love for cruising inspired them to explore the ship and take stunning photos against the backdrop of the vast ocean. We walked around the ship, capturing moments in all the spots the couple had fallen in love with the day before. A slice of pizza at Sorrento's added a touch of casual joy to the day. It was a moment of pure happiness, reflecting the couple's easygoing and fun-loving nature.
As the day waned, we met again to capture the enchantment of the sunset. The soft hues of the setting sun created a backdrop of romance and beauty. We also revisited the boardwalk, where the carousel added a whimsical touch to their photos. These candid moments hanging out with the carousel may just be some of the day's favorites.
On the last full day of the cruise, we gathered once more to capture a group photo with everyone and a few candid shots of them strolling the ship. It was a perfect way to end this remarkable celebration of love and adventure.
Chelsea and Ryan's Royal Caribbean cruise wedding was a unique and unforgettable experience, a celebration of love that transcended the boundaries of land and sea. We're grateful to have been a part of their incredible journey and to have documented these moments of joy, love, and adventure.
