Grenadian Honeymoon

Jul 3

Good news – Lauren Pape Photography is now Lauren Garrison Photography! On June 18th, I married my boyfriend/fiancé/best friend of almost six years, Matt Garrison. The wedding was a ton of fun, and I discovered that the rumors are true – your wedding day is one of the best days of your life.

For a wedding photographer, getting married is an awesome opportunity to understand your couples on a deeper level. You could go to a thousand weddings and still not completely realize what a wedding day is like for a bride and groom if you haven’t experienced it yourself.

What isn’t often talked about on wedding planning blogs or the daily emails engaged people receive from The Knot and Wedding Wire is the awesome honeymoon trip you get to take after the wedding has come and gone. We considered everywhere from Ireland to Fiji and finally decided that a relaxing Caribbean vacation would be best this time around. The next thing we knew we were in Grenada.

Admittedly, we had never heard of the island until a few Google searches led us there, but it was definitely the right choice. Our time there was split between touring the streets of St. George’s and at the Sandals La Source resort (which I very highly recommended btw).

I didn’t have a camera with me for a majority of the trip, but I did manage to take a few shots here and there. I hope you enjoy some photos from the Island of Spice.

There are many stray cats and dogs on the island.

Grenada is known for the many spices grown on the island and exported around the world. Before the trip, I had heard that the entire island smells like nutmeg…and it was true! Everywhere we went smelled like spices and flowers.

We took a tour of the Belmont Estate plantation and The Grenada Chocolate Company. We got to see and taste cocoa beans at several stages of production. I have to admit that my favorite taste was the last one…after the sugar was added.

We tried out scuba diving for the first time and even got certified! I’m no GoPro expert, but here are a few shots I took underwater.
