Aqua Action Dive Center was on the to-do list, not the i-do list, so danielle would have to wait just a little longer to slip into her scuba gear.

after the ceremony everyone hopped in the water and went snorkeling just off of secret harbour resort. kim got this shot of danielle looking all bond girl meets lara croft. not seen in this photo is the crocodile dundee shark knife she had strapped to her leg. knife or no knife, kim was not about to get into the water.

what’s better than having a destination wedding in st thomas?

St John wedding at Trunk Bay in the Virgin Islands by Ohana Photographers

spending the day after your wedding in st john. trunk bay on st john is absolutely amazing! the water is so clear you think you’re in a swimming pool. a warm swimming pool… with fishies.

as an added bonus when you snorkel around the little island in this picture there are underwater plaques that tell you what kind of coral or fish you are looking at. so cool! among the sea life spotted by our group were tons of small colorful fish, octopus, and barracuda.

to top off this incredible trip, danielle and alex spent their honeymoon caving and zip lining their way through puerto rico. when they finished all that they came back to california and returned to their day jobs as mild mannered action heroes.
