A laid back, simple, elegant Abaco Bahamas Wedding on the beautiful, quaint Hope Town, Elbow Cay was exactly what Florida couple Ali and Steve wanted. No fuss … just being surrounded by the closest family and friends as they exchanged their vow oceanside at The Abaco Inn.
Initially, the couple fancied an Exuma destination wedding. However, with the convenience of a direct flight from West Palm Beach to Marsh Harbour, Abaco, everything worked perfectly. Guests arrived on Thursday and Friday before the wedding. A few guests chose to be flown to the island by their private plane. This made for an ideal weekend of visiting, enjoying the myriad water activities the island offers. Steve, an avid fisherman, took in two days of fishing – wedding day included.
Guests were welcomed at a poolside Happy Hour at the Hope Town Harbour Lodge.
Abaco Bahamas Wedding – The Big Day Arrives
Wedding day, Saturday, September 17th, 2016, arrived. The crisp sunshine greeted all as the 40 family and friends who celebrated with the bride and groom gathered on the Abaco Inn’s Deck for breakfast. To relax best friends, Ali arranged for a yoga class on the grass. Quite a treat. The day was spent relaxing.
As 6 p.m., wedding time, approached, guests were ushered to the Terrace oceanside as the bride was transferred via golf cart to the ceremony. Administrator Charles Moss performed the short and sweet ceremony. Delicious passed hors d’oeuvres and cocktails ensued. Guests dined in the hotel’s dining room.
Dancing on the Deck and the inevitable midnight dip in the pool ended the evening.
