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.

With me dear, what you see is what you get.

I feel so blessed to play such a vital role in your most important day. I will never take that for granted. Ever.


That’s why you can trust

in my promises to:

Gently offer guidance – while still empowering
and encouraging you to make decisions that are true
to you and to your vision


Provide travel advice and insight from someone
who actually lives here and loves it so refer you to
only the best, most trusted vendors


Help you be truly present on one of the most
important days of your life

Most of all, I promise to show you just how much I care by

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 somewhere we’ve never been) easy and as stress-free as planning a wedding can be.
