Beaches Real Weddings
Shay-Lee & James
Beaches Turks & Caicos
FLUTTER OF Romance
We always knew that we wanted to get married on the beach. We have enjoyed many romantic beach vacations together, including our engagement which happened on the Bahamian sands of Sandals Emerald Bay. Therefore it seemed fitting to tie the knot on the sand with the ocean as a backdrop. We also didn't want the hassle of a wedding at home and really looked forward to spending 7 days bonding with our guests.
On the morning before the ceremony the girls hung out at the spa and the guys headed out for sport fishing in the days before. We also hosted an informal rehearsal dinner for the guests on the wedding eve. We spent some quality time with the gang after dinner hanging out in the tower over the pool bar which was really special.
Our favorite memory is the first moment that we saw each other at the opposite end of the aisle. The pastor instructed James to face the ocean while he waited for Shay-Lee to arrive at the end of the aisle. The moment he turned around and we caught each other's eyes we both were overwhelmed with emotion and burst into tears. It was a magical moment!
Our guests absolutely loved it! Everyone felt that they were part of something special and thought it was better than expected.
Beyond the joy of getting married on the beach with our friends and family, we really enjoyed the relationships we developed with the wedding planning staff including the planner herself and the photographers. They all made us feel so special and certain that they would take good care of us.
