Rising majestically above the 600 acre beach front resort of Anse Chastanet, Jade Mountain is a cornucopia of organic architecture celebrating St Lucia's stunning scenic beauty.
When Chris told me we booked a wedding in St Lucia, my bags we already packed. Photographing a Destination Wedding at Jade Mountain St. Lucia has been on our list of must see places for years. The luxurious Jade Mountain Resort may have been one of the best experiences with a camera I’ve ever had. Jade Mountain is known as one of the top luxury resorts in the Caribbean and is famous for its views, beauty, remoteness, and tranquility. Even the lobby at Jade Mountain is amazing, as it sits in the treetops overlooking the rainforest. The warm breeze and crystal blue water and bright green mountains greeted us to a Caribbean paradise. The local staff were so amazing, I felt my working vacation had officially started. Destination Wedding Photographers definitely have perks! Jade Mountain and Anse Chastanet pride themselves on keeping the resort ‘One with Nature’. So with that philosophy, came a short hike up to a charming room balcony overlooking the forest, with an open air rooms, draped mosquito nets over the beds and no tv or phone. It felt nice to “unplug.” As charming as the songs of the birds, frogs and insects were at night, it was so loud we actually needed earplugs to sleep!
The wedding ceremony took place overlooking the iconic Grand Pitons and the bay. Picture Postcard Perfection. A fun party ensued throughout the night on the beach, with the sweet island theme throughout! The next day, Lisa and Travis decided to go big with chartering a private catamaran for their guests and we did a fun trash the dress photoshoot on a remote beach. For those of you wondering about Trash the Dress sessions, here you go! What an adventure and what a wonderful place to tie the knot!
