Romantic Turks and Caicos Wedding

Turks and Caicos has long been resting atop my bucket list, and this romantic boho meets modern affair is reminding me that it sooo needs to happen… and soon.  From the sweet little details woven throughout each moment (read: personalized coconuts + a s’mores bar) to the breathtaking scenery to the adorable, baseball loving duo tying the knot.  See it all captured beautifully by Brilliant Studios in THE VAULT.


From Brilliant Studios… Brittany and Troy combined their individual styles to create their dream wedding at a stylish boutique hotel in the Turks and Caicos. While both the bride and groom have laid-back personalities, as Brittany put it: “I tend to gravitate more toward the Bohemian vibe, whereas Troy is more of a throwback to the midcentury modern days.”

The couple live in Pennsylvania, where they both work for the Philadelphia Phillies (which is also how they met). When they couldn’t agree on a location for their wedding in the States, they compromised with a destination wedding. They looked at locations all over the world before Brittany found a wedding on SMP that took place at the Gansevoort in the Turks and Caicos — a small chain of islands just southeast of the Bahamas. A year and a half later, they were saying “I do” in the same place.

It was extremely important for Brittany to have a hands-on approach to her wedding, so she brought all decorations, gifts and signage purchased from Etsy vendors for the ceremony and reception. All other elements were left to the couple’s wedding planner, Luise Bayley of NILA Destinations.

Details were key to this wedding — from the delicate florals, to the driftwood arch, to the personalized coconuts filled with rum. Brittany wanted the day to be an “airy, carefree affair” — and it turned out to be nothing less. Brittany and Troy exchanged their vows by the sea under their handcrafted arch, with a rainbow for a backdrop. They had an outdoor reception on a moonlit beach, ending the night with a bonfire in the sand and a s’mores bar.

“The memories of dancing barefoot with my new husband, friends and family under the stars on a Caribbean beach by a bonfire is a feeling we all will hold onto for life,” Brittany says.

But there WAS one thing missing: their 2-year-old Golden Retriever, Archie, who Troy and Brittany are rarely without. It was important to the couple that he somehow be a part of their wedding. Annie Lee from From Scratch TCI swooped in with the perfect solution: Cookie favors, with a particular Golden Retriever in mind. One cookie was shaped like Archie, and the other, a little pink heart.

“All of the vendors we worked with were true professionals, but in the end, almost felt more like friends we had made for life,” Brittany says. “This was a dream come true. Literally.”
