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.

From Lyndah Wells Photography… Michelle & Roy wanted a destination wedding far from their native New Jersey residence. They chose Island of Grand Bahama, in The Bahamas for their destination wedding and flew down with 70 guests. Their wedding date, February 19th 2011, fell just after Valentine’s day which made it perfect to carry along the theme of love. 50 red roses filled the bridal bouquet whilst rose petals dotted the aisle & seat ends of the beach ceremony & reception venue.
On a perfectly sun-filled day, a barefoot Michelle said “I do” to Roy on the pristine white sands of Spanish Main beach and while the guests returned to the reception venue on a ferry, they couple travelled back in style in a limousine. After the first dance, the speeches and dinner, all the guest were thrilled with an amazingly vibrant performance from a local Junkanoo group. Playing drums, horns & dancing. They experienced a TRUE TRUE Bahamian tradition!
