Focused on You

Say hello to white sand, aqua blue waters and sunsets that meet the ocean at the horizon. The Bahamas is a place so rich in beauty, cuisine, and culture that your guests will be wondering if they’ve arrived in heaven.

Sounds perfect!
But what now?

You knew it could be a bit challenging to plan a wedding in another country, but it’s becoming a lot more complicated than you ever imagined.

And it’s too much to handle alone.

Putting your trust in someone and
something so far away scares you.

How are you
supposed to trust that
what you see is what
you’re going to get?

Breathe. I’ve got
this, dear.
Allow me to explain…
“I still remembered how anxious I was when my husband and I decided to have a destination wedding with nearly a hundred people. After I talked to Marva, everything seemed to become easier. She was so sweet and considerate and everything turned out to be more beautiful than what I expected.” -Ana Y.
A Love for the

Having lived here for most of my life, I have a deep knowledge and love for all things Bahamian. And as a former member of the Chaines de Rotisseurs and an avid world traveler, you could say that I have an affinity for the finer things.

With Chic Bahamas Weddings & Events, I’ve combined these passions. And now, I create extraordinary experiences for my clients.


Which I hope includes you.

A Passion for

My passion for events started while working at The Grand Bahama Island Tourism Board. For over 20 years as the Director, I oversaw the planning, design, and production of all kinds of events.

It was there that I realized my love for the art of wedding planning. After all, it’s incredibly fulfilling to help people visualize their wedding dreams and then make those dreams come true.

So, in 2011, I took that love, along with my experience and knowledge, and started Chic Bahamas Wedding and Events.

I have been blessed to plan exquisite, one-of-a-kind weddings in the Bahamas ever since.

And I’m proud to say that my ability to create elegant, custom celebrations- coupled with my calm spirit, impeccable attention to detail, stellar communication and dedication to my couples -has made me the go-to destination wedding planner in the Bahamas.

Cultivated Connections

The Bahamas are filled with some of the most talented and experienced wedding professionals in the industry. And because I have built incredible relationships and connections with so many of them…

I know the perfect vendors to execute your dream wedding.

Whether you need to find a venue, choose ideal guest accommodations, select food and beverage or make decisions on music, lighting, flowers or photography…

I can help you assemble a “dream team” that’s just right for you and your day.

Guide To Paradise


If you’re like many of my clients, you’ve likely never been here before.

(And if you have, welcome back!)

Regardless, you have enough to think about. So, allow me to help with advice and guidance on anything you may need related to your travels.


Perhaps you want to know the best place to board a catamaran for a coral reef excursion. Or how to reach the island where you can swim with the pigs. Or where to find the best authentic


Bahamian cuisine. Or recommendations on the most luxurious spas to unwind from all those wedding jitters…

Whatever you may need, I have you covered.


Plan your trip to paradise with confidence! I love to help, and quite honestly my insight on all things Bahamas, as well as my vast travel background, simply cannot be matched by an online search.

Everything’s Better In the Bahamas!

Maybe your dream involves a grand affair at a luxury hotel resort. Or perhaps you imagine something a bit more intimate like hosting a posh private island experience. Maybe you prefer a secluded beach elopement with just the two of you on a magical evening alone under the twinkling lights.

Whatever your vision,
it’s YOURS!

And my friend…
you chose the Bahamas!

So no matter what, it will be picture-perfect.

Just like you imagine.
Even better.

Marva is so knowledgeable and choosing her for our planner was the best decision we could have made. Not only was Marva there for us but she was also there for our family members. She truly cared about our special day and it absolutely showed. Marva made planning a destination wedding (to someone we’ve never been) easy and as stress free as planning a wedding can be. – Jennifer R
