Dustee + Justin Wedding | Paradise Island, Bahamas

Bloggers meet Dustee + Justin…


Yes, I have fallen head-over-heels in love yet again with sugar-sweet, Dustee and her now hubby, Justin (aka, Justee!).

Dustee and Justin were married this past June at the breathtaking, One & Only Resort on Paradise Island.  They pulled out all the stops, not leaving one detail unturned (a special thanks to Lindsey R. at Weddings and the City for the design collaboration!).

Complete with a little Monique, to an unbelievable Junkanoo Band…my shutter wouldn’t stop clicking.  Ahhhh…total Heaven!  Another special thanks to my wing-man, Steve Michael!

Be sure to visit their New Orleans engagement session that we shot back in January of this year.

Now, allow me to present…The Jenkins!
