Bahamas Wedding by James Christianson Photographer
July 29, 2011

This Bahamas wedding looks like it just sashayed off the pages of a fairytale. It's all white decor is beyond gorgeous and the bride's dress? Yup. That's none other than Oscar De La Renta and it's pretty amazing if you ask me! And don't even get me started on the chuppah, cascading with hundreds, maybe even thousands of white, fluffy flowers. I think I've died and gone to all-white-wedding heaven! James Christianson was there to capture all pretty, little details and there's so much more in the full gallery!

From the Bride...Bill Fulghum (our creative director, if you will) and I worked tirelessly, pouring over every detail to make sure that the light fixtures would be perfect, locating a white dance floor, designing the chuppah, coordinating stationary.  We were both incredibly detail oriented (maybe to a fault in my case).

Incents wafting as guests entered the garden; servers dressed in white glove attire stood in lines with trays of champagne as the guests entered; custom-made seat cushions softened the Philippe Starck ghost chairs we decided to use.  At first I was worried that the design would be limited by what we were able to procure on the island; however, Michelle White, owner of Floral Arts, really came through and was able to supply us with every last element we wanted.  She went to great lengths for us, whether shipping items from Miami, outright buying them for her company, she was really great to work with!
