virgin islands engagement: peter & chaundra

Peter and Chaundra’s story takes them all over the map…

It was recommended that these two should meet and so they did, in Chicago while each on a business trip. They hit it off and continued to see each other back in California where they lived at the time. The relationship grew as Peter left his beloved Huntington Beach home for Chaundra’s home of LA – a true testament to how much he cared for her ;) It proved worthwhile…for it didn’t take long before Peter proposed on the beach and she said yes. Having spent some time with her family in Oregon, they decided to move to Vermont to be closer to his family, and began planning their wedding, set to be in the US Virgin Islands.

We met for the first time upon our arrival in St Thomas and by the end of our week, we parted ways as friends. We also got in an engagement session! Much fun was had as we watched the sunrise and explored Water Island, where we stayed…and I contemplated setting up shop here…
