Colorful Jamaica Wedding Designed With Effortless Island Elegance

If I had to describe this wedding in one short phrase, “easy, breezy island elegance” are the words that jump straight to mind. Karen and Mark hoped to give their guests a tropical escape and a celebration set in Montego Bay, Jamaica totally fit the bill. Shannon Leahy Events and Bows & Arrows infused the affair with color-happy moments, and the one and only Sylvie Gil captured everything behind the camera.

From Sylvie Gil… Karen & Mark’s Caribbean wedding was a lovely spring departure from the bustle of city life. The ceremony and reception were highlighted by richly colored island florals, a bright tropical color palette, and coral and pineapple accents. The couple integrated plenty of custom designs with the surrounding Jamaican culture – monogrammed “escort cups” for guests, ikat table runners, local flowers, and steel drums at the farewell brunch. A relaxed and idyllically beautiful affair, this wedding is the definition of effortless island elegance.

A Destination Wedding in Island Paradise

Alexis and Murphy decided to tie the knot in Punta Cana and with one look at the photos by Melissa Jill it’s easy to see why. Think white sand, crystal blue water, and true paradise in every sense of the word. They brought on seasoned wedding pros like The Eventeur to bring their “classic, lux” vision to life, and in our opinion? They nailed it.

From The EventeurAlexis and Murphy were married in Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic with the Caribbean palm trees and lapping ocean water as a backdrop. Alexis has family on the island – in fact, her mother was born and raised there –which made the Dominican Republic as meaningful a destination as it was scenic. Punta Cana boasts one of the most beautiful beaches in the world and Alexis & Murphy’s wedding there was an absolute fairy tale from start to finish. But even the glories of nature couldn’t outshine how stunning and joyous the bride & groom looked as they were wed!

The design of the wedding was lux and classic, with white flowers and elegant details, like the pierced wood fans for the guests to use and the perfectly mismatched bridesmaids’ dresses. Tradition and family are important to the couple, and Alexis was moved to tears when Murphy surprised her with his grandmother’s ring as she prepared for the day.

The wedding was also seasoned with vibrant and unique touches, which accented the refined style and made it a perfect fit for the fun, adventurous couple. The groom, who plays minor league baseball, presented his groomsmen with custom bobbleheads, and cocktail hour was energized by the music of a Dominican trio band. The newlyweds and their guests danced the night away beneath the stars.

Boho Chic Wedding on the Beaches of Anguilla

If you’ve ever dreamed of a wedding on the beaches of the Caribbean, glistening ocean as the backdrop with sand squished between your toes – take note from this Anguilla “I do.” Destination wedding extraordinaire, Michelle Rago brought her expertise to the table with paper pretties by Cheree Berry Paper, and it all made for an epic day captured by Braedon Photography. This way to sunny skies and so much more.

From Michelle Rago Destinations… The bride’s father has a gorgeous home on Anguilla where we were able to host both the ceremony and cocktails, which created such a sense of intimacy and family. Eliza was able to get ready in her bedroom and walk straight out past the pool and face the sea for their ceremony.

The inspiration was Bohemian Chic for ceremony. We created a chuppah out of driftwood collected throughout the year and adorned with orchids and hydrangea. We also accentuated the aisle with manzanita and orchids.

The reception dinner and late night fun took place at the Malliouhana Hotel, where Eliza and Chris got engaged. We transformed the restaurant which sits on a cliff overlooking the ocean.

The ceiling was strung with orchids and hanging candles which twinkled and swayed in the breeze. The centerpieces were all white, lush and low. The flowers were white hydrangea and dendrobium and phalaenopsis orchids. We created a lounge for dancing under the stars after dinner and then moved guests up to the pool for late night dance party with fun lighting!
