Laura & Henri Raikamo celebrated their marriage with a romantic honeymoon at the Aruba Renaissance Resort. They enjoyed all of the wonderful things that Aruba has to offer including an exciting boat trip to the Renaissance’s Private Island.

Laura & Henri were welcomed by several dozen large iguanas and a flock of pink flamingoes. The Raikamo’s traveled all the way from Espoo, Finland to celebrate their love.  The travelers actually met on a vacation cruise 8 years ago and Laura say’s “it wasn’t love at first sight, but destiny by many different actions brought us together and 4 months later we started dating.”

The blue-eyed blondes were married on July 26, 2014 and chose Aruba as the Honeymoon Destination because Henri had visited Aruba with his family about 15 years ago. “In the start of our relationship he had already travelled all over the world and said that the coolest places on earth were Aruba and Dubai and those two places are the only ones where he will ever go to again.  So I had two places to choose from for our honeymoon. Later I found out it was a joke, but I had decided that Aruba is the place to go and about 6-7 years later of that incident here we are,” Laura announced.

“We love it here! Beautiful places to discover, the nicest people, relaxing atmosphere… Couldn’t be better and we are absolutely coming back to Aruba! No question about that,” they both exclaimed.  Bella Aruba Photography captured their magical moments that Laura & Henri will cherish for a lifetime.
