Santa Barbara Resort Curacao Wedding Photography – Tandalea & Earl

I am so glad you got on that plane…
It’s the line that Earl used during the ceremony just before his vows to his lovely, elegant and gorgeous bride Tandalea. An instant tear jerker for those family members and friends who knew the origin to this love story.

“Meant to be” sounds so very cliche nowadays, but when we sat down with Tandalea to hear her story about how she and Earl had met then lost sight of eachother, only to fall in love about 18 years later, “meant to be” pretty much sums it all up!

Earl and Tandalea met at high school and had an ongoing thing, a fling, holding hands, kissing, hugging, all PG 13 stuff.:-) Big boy Earl was a few grades up–the first time you see him he can look pretty intimidating, quite sizable and strong as an ox, but looks can be deceiving as he’s super sweet and adorable–and when he finished high school joined the Navy. 18 years later, a friend suggested Tandalea to connect with Earl via Facebook. Well, as for the rest of the story we will leave that to your imagination.

Tandie & Earl, thank you. For your friendship, your ability to make us feel like friends from the moment we met, for looking so increddibly gorgeous. And for allowing us to document this day for you. I can’t wait to see what the future has in store for you two.

Much love, Claudia

The weddingdress was just perfect, classy and sexy.

Her bridesmaids kept her company while getting ready. These girls are the sweetest group of friends anyone could wish for.

The ballroom had beautiful personal details, taken care of by Tandalea herself. Gianni & Cherise from Santa Barbara Resort put in every effort to make the room look impressive.
