A Bahamas garden wedding with vistas of the gorgeous crystal clear blue waters of the Bahamas is delightful. It’s beautiful, serene and magical. A garden wedding is particularly special for couples who do not want a sandy toes wedding.
Maria and Matthew of Grand Bahama Island were one of such couples who elected to have a garden wedding as opposed a wedding on the beach. The couple married in a quiet ceremony six years ago. Maria wanted a real wedding to celebrate with family and friends. So, the couple planned a Renewal of Wedding Vows, complete with all elements of a full wedding.
Bahamas Garden Wedding With Personal Touches
Personal touches were the order of the day. Both Maria and Matthew worked tirelessly to create special details for their celebration. Matthew built the arbor, aisleway, tables, bars, oversized seating chart frame and more. Marie and her mother-in-law created table centerpiece containers, cheesecakes, cookies.
Maria who hails from Quebec, had her very first friend on the island, Brittany Baldwin. perform she and Matthew’s Renewal Ceremony. Over 100 cherished family members from Quebec and local friends, the wedding took place December 30, 2016 at 2:30 p.m.
Bahamas Wedding Traditions
Following dinner in the garden, Maria and Matthew surprised guests with the Bahamian tradition – Junkanoo. A festival of pulsating goatskin drums, horns, whistles, cowbells that raised guests to their feet. Junkanoo heralded the start of dancing. Prior to Junkanoo, guests enjoyed a cocktail hour and Bahamian buffet.
