Inspired by memories of family vacations at the bride's Grandfather's home, the couple knew that there was no other choice for their wedding than Harbour Island, Bahamas. Using treasures collected on the beach with her Dad as decor, the team created a sea inspired design. Pulling off a wedding on a tropical island is definitely harder than it looks, so they enlisted our help as their full service planner to pull it off. Word of another beautiful wedding we had produced on the island brought us together, and it was an absolute pleasure to create this special week for them. It is one of our all time favorites!
The bride, who is a fabulous artist, hand painted all of the artwork the papers. We partnered with Tiny Pine Press to produce all of the papers which were extraordinary.
It was warm June day so we added shade canopies to keep guests cool. They came in extra handy when we were greeted with quick rain showers that moved over the island. The wedding took place in front of The Dunmore Hotel. Their staff did a beautiful job of keeping everyone cool and refreshed as we waited for the rain shower to pass. Beautiful sea fan programs with driftwood handles did double duty as fans to keep guests cool. Once the rain passed, the bride entered with her father to "Sea of Love" and the couple exchanged vows during the ceremony officiated by the groom's childhood friend.
