From Sarah Joelle PhotographyFor New Yorkers, John and Dina, life is all about the experiences, and they wanted their wedding day to be one of them. They had visited the Turks & Caicos Islands together and thought that it would be the perfect place for their destination wedding experience. Dina imagined a soft, romantic wedding inspired by the soft, pink colors of the sunsets in Turks & Caicos. She also wanted it to capture their playful personalities, and happiness together.

Turks and Caicos is a stunning location for a destination wedding. John and Dina chose the luxurious Seven Stars Resort in Grace Bay, Providenciales for their ceremony and reception. Providenciales is an island in the northwest part of the Turks and Caicos Islands. “Provo” as it is commonly called is know for the miles of pristine, white sand beaches, sparkling turquoise waters, and upscale resorts.

It was an intimate wedding with about 30 guests. The ceremony was on the beach right before sunset and then the guests moved to the West Deck overlooking the ocean for dinner and dancing as the sky turned the prettiest shades.

The wedding coordinator, Laura Staniforth, was absolutely amazing and kept the day running smoothly. It is so important to have a great planner that is local to help when planning a destination wedding where you can’t be there to make sure that everything gets taken care of!

The proposal story from the Groom… It happened in Shanghai, China, at a hotel rooftop overlooking the scenic and historic Bund. Having carried the ring inside a napkin in his pocket for the better part of 12 days as they traveled through Seoul and finally to Shanghai, it was finally time to “pop the question”.

They were alone in a small chandelier-lit room within a monolithic stone spire set atop the roof of the Three On The Bund Hotel. She looked radiant as they looked out the balcony over the Huangpu River staring across to the new developments in Pudong. They sat back down to finish their desserts. He rested his arms on the small cloth-covered wooden table, looked at her, and asked “Are you going to finish your cake? Because if you don’t I will eat it for you.” She declined, it was a really good piece of molten chocolate cake. Then, he inched his chair closer to her, a light sweat breaking out over his brow as he tried to muster the courage to ask again, this time a much more serious question.

He got down on one knee. “Will you marry me?” “Will you grow old with me?” He may have said a few other things but it was drowned out by a sea of emotions. A glass was knocked over. Her napkin dropped, the molten cake a distant memory. Tears welled up in her eyes as she covered her face with her hands….

Intimate Turks and Caicos Wedding

Between the approaching cold weather and my current honeymoon research, I’m swooning over every beach photo I see. Then this wedding came across my desk and I had to stop everything. From the ocean views to the beautiful couple, this Turks and Caicos wedding has me sold. Natalie Watson captured every seaside smile and I’ll be obsessing over this gallery as I bundle up with, once again, another blanket.

From Natalie WatsonThis wedding was a very sweet and intimate celebration with only 20 guests….and I especially loved the bride’s getting ready robe! 

From The Bride… Our friends and family live all over the U.S. and Canada, so it was going to be a destination wedding for our guests no matter where we got married. With that in mind, we thought there couldn’t be a better place to bring them than Turks & Caicos. We got married on a Thursday in order to “get the wedding out of the way,” leaving us the rest of the weekend to have some stress-free fun with our family and friends.

The main thing we wanted was for our wedding to feel intimate. Our goal was to have the reception feel more like a casual dinner party on the beach rather than an event at a big resort. To do that, we kept things relatively low key. We used only one long table with simple bud vases of white hydrangeas. Dinner was served family-style. Our favors were bags of s’mores, which everyone roasted at the end of the night before many of them ran into the ocean – some in their wedding attire!

Romantic Turks & Caicos Beach Wedding

There are sooo many reasons to love this beach soiree. For starters, how about that bouquet packed with nearly three dozen lush white peonies? It’s a perfect match for the Bride’s mesmerizing beauty. But what I love most is the laid back vibe in Dave Robbins‘ photos that drew me in right away. Planned to perfection by Sofia Crokos Events, you can peruse every last detail right here and don’t miss the film from Living Cinema!

From Dave Robbins Photography… Elizabeth and Efrem met by chance, at a birthday party. The birthday party was at an indoor swimming pool, at a hotel in the middle of Times Square, and was in honor of a beautiful young actress, Toni. Efrem had only met Toni several nights prior at another party, and she insisted he attend. Elizabeth had met Toni briefly at several auditions and couldn’t resist her warm smile and friendliness when she too was invited.

Efrem of course wouldn’t turn down an invitation from a beautiful girl to be in his a bathing suit… After a couple of hours of partying and not knowing anyone, Efrem found himself resting on the couch in the hotel lobby.

After a few zzz’s, he was woken by Elizabeth walking through the door with a friend and immediately engaged her in conversation. Efrem bought Elizabeth a glass of champagne. Elizabeth did not bring her bathing suit, thinking that no one would actually go in the pool. She was charmed by Efrem’s outgoing nature and funny personality as he stood there in his bathing suit, at a bar. Little did they know they had met the person that would eventually marry and start happy and blissful life together.

From the Bride & Groom… From the day that we became engaged, we knew that we wanted our wedding to be like a vacation. We wanted a laid back, beachy, and yet classy vibe. It was also important for us to spend quality time with our guests and we knew we would get that if we did it out of town. So, why not do it in paradise? We wanted to have it somewhere in the Caribbean, since it’s a fairly short flight from the East Coast. We chose Turks & Caicos because of its’ incredible beaches. Also, it’s an island that has amazing hotels/restaurants, but it isn’t too commercial or overpopulated.

The Gansevoort Hotel and The Mothershouse Villa in Turks & Caicos were perfect locations for our wedding weekend. It combined both of our styles and the overall feeling we wanted for our wedding. It was modern, classy, and at the same time very beachy and breezy. No suits or long ball gowns, but feet in the sand and freedom!

We had our ceremony on the beach at the private villa with all their guests on cushioned benches and ottomans surrounding them, like theater in the round. The reception was at the hotel. Dinner was outside under the palm trees and stars, surrounding the infinity pool. It was magical. And then there was a big dance party all night! Luckily, we got our very talented friends to DJ and play at our wedding too. Our DJ was Mia Moretti and Caitlin Moe was on the electric violin rocking out.
