Exuma Honeymoon

Following their intimate and special wedding weekend, the couple headed to Great Exuma for a Honeymoon at Grand Isle Resort.  Their favorite Honeymoon Memory? “The Honeymoon at Grand Isle Resort, Great Exuma, was so special and there were so many favorite memories. One that stood out was our last night in the Exumas. We experienced a very unique local dinner at Shirley’s at the Fish Fry. The amazing food and local hospitality was a wonderful way to wrap up our beautiful honeymoon.”

Tell us why you chose to get married in Nassau: “We chose to get married in the Bahamas because we had visited the islands the year prior and just fell in love with the area, the people and the beautiful scenery.”

Real Weddings Bahamas:Sara and Kyle

Sara says she would absolutely recommend a wedding at Treasure Beach Estate. “This a unique way to do a destination wedding for smaller groups. The intimacy of the beach estate is perfect for family as well as for preparing for the wedding. It was also extremely private which is different from a wedding on a resort.”

The best part of Sara and Kyle’s Bahamas wedding on the beach? “There are so many wonderful experiences. Marva Munroe, our wedding planner, was amazing. She was a huge blessing to us because our wedding weekend was executed beautifully.”
