Bahamas Wedding Destination
A Bahamas Wedding Nassau was definitely in the cards for Maggy, a CPA, and Ruy, a sales executive, from Miramar, Florida. A year ago, the two were engaged at the Beach Club Cafe, Sandyport, Nassau, where Ruy travels to for work at least three times a year. It was only natural for the couple to return to the island to tie the knot.
The couple enjoy everything about island life and wanted to share this with their 44 family and friends over a four-day weekend celebration. They did exactly this when they traveled to Nassau for a Bahamas Destination Wedding weekend.
“We are both of Cuban decent, so food, drinks, and music were extremely important to us,” said Maggy. “It was the most important thing when planning our wedding and it is what all of our guests were looking forward to. They were so pleased with all of it and are still talking about it today!”
Bahamas Wedding Ceremony
The couple tied the knot under in a beautiful wedding ceremony on the exclusive Rooftop Terrace, Old Fort Bay Club, with sweeping views of the ocean and is shaded by ancient Silk Cotton Trees on a sunny Saturday afternoon, September 14, 2013.
Following the ceremony, guests moved to the Pavillion Room where they enjoyed cocktails and butler passed hors d’oeuvres of Bahamian Conch Fritters and Tomato Bruschetta. This was followed by a full service dinner of a starter of Bibb lettuce, oven dried tomatoes, bacon bits and avocado dressing. Main course items featured Proscuitto and Goat Cheese Stuffed Chicken Breast, Roasted potatoes, Asparagus, baby carrots or Spicy Lobster Stir- Fry Jasmine Rice The red velvet cake was served as dessert.
DJ Ampero rocked the party with music, including lots of salsa, that went past midnight.
The couple kept the weekend up close and personal by renting private houses right on the beach for family and friends. Everyone enjoyed a rehearsal sunset cruise the evening prior to the wedding.
