The Wedding Day
Wedding date: March 10, 2011
Her most memorable moment: Walking back to the hotel along the beach, just the two of us, after our wedding dinner on the beach with our parents.
His most memorable moment: Seeing her walk down the aisle with her parents.
Advice to others: Do a destination wedding!
Fave wedding detail: The overall setting at The Sands at Grace Bay … a quiet corner at a resort where we really felt comfortable, got to know the great staff and could relax, and focus on our wedding.
Most unexpected moment: Not a moment, but the feeling we had during the ceremony, officiated by Pastor Wayde Coleby. His words were more meaningful than we could have imagined.
Honeymoon: We had some challenges as we shifted to another resort for the honeymoon, but a quick call home to LUXE and with help from The Sands, our honeymoon was back on track at The Regent Palms where we played tennis to our heart’s content – and enjoyed a spectacular shower room!
The day in three words: Dream come true.
Ceremony location: The Sands at Grace Bay
Reception location: Bay Bistro, beachfront
Bridal gown: Ivory silk Sophia gown from J.Crew
Groom’s outfit: Midnight blue suit, white shirt, purple tie
Flowers: Bougainvillea to match those found at the resort.
Tell us about your experience working with LUXE Destination Weddings: We made the decision to do a destination wedding after the Christmas holidays, realizing the timeline was tight. Within 60 days, we’d said our “I do’s” in a wedding that exceeded our expectations. LUXE was crucial in helping us find the perfect place to fulfill our dreams and we didn’t have to sweat the details. Even if we’d had more time, we wouldn’t have done things any differently. I smile every time I think back to our amazing destination wedding.
