A hidden gem in The Bahamas on the island of Eleuthera, The Cove resort is an ideal spot for a destination wedding. The seclusion and natural beauty of Eleuthera has even caught the attention of some international celebrities. Rumor has it that Justin Bieber rented the whole place out for his 21st birthday. Lenny Kravitz lives just the road and has can sometimes be spotted riding his bike to nearby Gregory Town.
The natural promontory between the two coves/beaches at the resort serves as a perfect spot for the ceremony. The wedding was brilliantly planned and styled by Mish and her crew at Boy Meets Girl Weddings.
Caitlin and Matt hosted a bonfire welcome party on Friday night and had me come to photograph that event as well. It’s nice to getting to know some of the people beforehand so come wedding day they are already comfortable with me and my camera clicking away. People often look at me funny at first and are surprised I am not constantly posing them and asking them to “say, cheese!” Once they realize that I am capturing real, candid moments they relax and understand my method.
Here’s what Caitlin had to say before she had even seen any of the photos,
“Erik was a true professional from beginning to end. He responded promptly to all emails and reported for our events exactly as planned. We are eager to see the photos he took, but we would recommend him wholeheartedly on dependability alone.”
