Amy + Kenn: A Sweet St. John Wedding by Carina Skrobecki Photography
Posted by Sarah Zlotnick. Filed under Real Weddings

Consider this week’s real wedding a mini vacation you can take right at your desk! Amy and Kenn got hitched this past December in stunning St. John. They said ‘I do’ against a backdrop of clear blue water and lush island greenery, and we love the way they let the easy-going nature of the locale dictate a similar vibe for their nuptials. From Amy’s beachy updo to bridesmaids in mismatched dresses and sunnies, the details in this couple’s big day are sure to delight! Thanks to Carina Skrobecki for sharing the photos with us—you can see even more shots in the full gallery.

Amy and Kenn originally met while on separate family trips in Cabo San Lucas in 2003, but seven more years would pass before they had their first official date (a Seahawks game in 2010). The duo bonded over a love of outdoor events, and Ken proposed a year later with a gorgeous yellow diamond.

“Overall, we kept decor simple, letting the natural landscape do most of the work,” says the bride. The couple prioritized planning fun events for their guests in the days leading up the ceremony, and stuck with simple floral centerpieces to complement their four course Caribbean dinner. A live steel band accompanied the cocktail hour beforehand, and Amy was able to sneak away after to change into a flirty reception dress for the dancing part of the evening.

Thanks again to Carina Skrobecki for sharing this fun beach wedding with us!
