Destination Wedding in Palm Beach, Aruba: Nate & Peggy

The wedding season officially started for 2010. And not a bad way to start at all. It started way down south – as close as you can get down to South America without actually getting there. When I got the final confirmation last year from Nate & Peggy that I was going to be their wedding photographer in Palm Beach, Aruba, the first thing I did was get up from my chair and started singing the song by the Beach Boys: “Aruba, Jamaica, Oooh I wanna take ya…” I knew this wedding was going to be a fun one because I got to spend some time with Nate & Peggy last month photographing their engagement session in New York City. I loved their personality, energy and their love for photography. And they also loved eating good food (Started our session by eating Japanese ramun noodle for lunch)!! So I knew right there and than that we were going to get along just fine.

You could not ask for a better wedding. Five days under the Aruba sky. Friendly Arubans greeted you with their warmth and hospitality. Amazing seafood. Breath-taking snorkeling sites. Driving around the island during our photoshoot. Getting to know Nate & Peggy along with their close family & friends – everything was a delightful. Thank you so much for allowing us to capture your wedding day and spend the weekend with you guys. Weddings like this reminds us how blessed we are as wedding photographers to call this our vocation (or was it vacation)?!?! 🙂

The ceremony & the reception took place at the beautiful Radisson Aruba Resort, Casino & Spa in Palm Beach Aruba. Here are some images that highlight the weekend. I hope you guys enjoy them as much as I had fun editing and putting them together. Big thanks to Kenny Nakai for being my wingman for this wedding.

    I figured out why you looked familiar! You were the photographer for my old college friend’s wedding! Justin (Jung) and Virginia who are in the Seattle area now. Jung was my old bible study co-leader in college. He had posted some of his engagement/wedding pics on FB and I just checked back and it was your work. Great pics for both couples!

  8. Esther Lao (mom) says:

    Looking forward to seeing the rest. Now I understand why Nate insisted that you have to be the photographer for his wedding. Beautiful pics. Good job.

  12. Kenny Kim says:

    Thank you so much everyone! Wow, to have groom’s mom comment – now that’s awesome! 🙂

  13. cool shot against that orange building….Aruba definitely has some intense tropical color in it’s architecture.

  14. Kenny, I just love the clean simple “fine art” type travel shots at the start. The wedding looks amazing too. What a fab location!

  15. Christene says:

    I am so glad the couple chose to share a link to these photos on the Aruba.com wedding forum. They are amazing and show how beautiful Aruba really is. As a recent Aruban bride myself I’ve looked at hundreds (maybe thousands) of Aruba wedding photos and these are stunning – they really stand out – artistic – magical. The couple looks so happy and I’m sure they’ll cherish these forever! If you might be interested in doing more DW in Aruba let me know and I’ll give you a shout out on my blog.
