Sara & Rocky Photography captured the gorgeous day perfectly and there’s so much more pretty happening right now in the full gallery.
From Sara & Rocky Photography… Suzanne and Zac were wed on May 5 on Harbour Island in the Bahamas. The island is one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen with its pink sand and aquamarine water — there are no cars, just golf carts, and you can only get there by boat. Suzanne, Zac, and their families are some of the most wonderful, gracious people we have ever met. There was a rehearsal dinner Friday night, along with the Junkanoo band (as you can see … it’s a Bahamaian tradition!), along with the wedding on Saturday. The wedding was at St. John’s Anglican Church, and the reception was on Pink Sands Beach. Their wedding was on the night of the fullest moon of the year.

From the Bride…Scott and I got married in the balmy Bahamas on June 25th and I’d like to share with you some of the snapshots of our special day. Having grown up in completely different parts of the world, we had a hard time picking a place for the wedding. Should it be in Pittsburgh where he is from, or Singapore where I grew up? We ended up picking the island of Nassau because if there’s one thing we had in common, it was that our families and friends loved to have a good time.
We had a Hindu ceremony on the beach with the color scheme of turquoise, cream and silver. Being a DIY Bride, as well as a bit of a control freak, I spent many hours on the little touches. I used blue wine bottle labels to adorn the cover page of our ceremony programs. I then scanned those in and use the graphic to make smaller tags on a number of things including the buri fans we handed out to our guests. I had help from the hotel (Sheraton Nassau) and my family to make the garlands, and the traditional cloth that was used to adorn my walk down the aisle with my brothers. Overall, it was a small traditional wedding but it was just the way we imagined it to be – with smiles all around.
For the reception, our color scheme was coral and cream with gold accents. This color scheme played out in our selection of bridal party garments as well as decor. As you will see, we went with a Moroccan style low table setting, but played out the same colors. I made butterfly place cards (on the glasses) – I had seen them on Etsy but did not have any budget left to order them so I made them on my own. We had our cake topper made by mudcards on Etsy, and she did a terrific job bringing our hobbies to life through them – Scott is a musician outside of his job, and I am a photography nut in my spare time.
