A Beautiful Fall COVID Bahamas Elopement
Couple: Elsa & Charles
A COVID Bahamas elopement Elsa and Charles had their hearts set on a Fall elopement in Japan. Just before they purchased tickets, the reality of the pandemic set in. This sweet couple spent time planning and replanning their event as changes and restrictions continued They considered an elopement on the beautiful island of Eleuthera. Those plans failed due to the pandemic. They thought that if they eloped in Nassau, there was no way the pandemic would affect their plans. They envisioned a few bumps in the road but not a lockdown with “extremely strict conditions.”
So, the bride and groom scheduled a Saturday, October 10 wedding. However, this wasn’t to happen either. Three days before their Bahamas elopement, Nassau Bahamas was placed on a lockdown starting at 6 pm the day before their wedding.
The couple’s thinking was to be married and then, as planned, spend a honeymoon at The Island House where they were being married. That did not happen either. Because a COVID negative test for check-in at a hotel became a protocol.
Backup plans kicked in. Elsa and Charles decided to move up their wedding by a day. We worked with the couple and vendors to move the wedding to 5 pm October 9.
“Planning a wedding is hard, especially during a pandemic,” said Elsa. “We had hit a roadblock with getting responses from locations. Then, we came across Chic Bahamas Weddings on social media and reached out. We are glad we did. Marva was able to make the connections we needed to ensure what we envisioned for our wedding could be realized. When changes had to be made last minute, it was comforting that Marva never made us feel that we were alone figuring it out. She was on top of it! She kept in contact, and we felt assured that everything would be okay. Thanks, Marva!”
