Kizzy Bowe and Ryan Herry tied the knot during a November 24, 2012 lovely early afternoon ceremony at Church of the Good Shepherd, an Episcopalian church located in Pinder’s Point, Grand Bahama Island. The couple and 100 guests celebrated at Captain’s Galley, the Canal House, Pelican Bay, with a beautiful view of Bell Channel Bay from the building’s fourth floor. We share with you today images of this wedding courtesy of Crazzi Photography. Take a peek at the wedding trailer.
I met Kizzy, a biochemist, and Ryan, a manager at Bahamas Oil Refinery, six months before their wedding. We met several times and exchanged email messages to crystalize their wedding style, vision and other details. It was absolutely delightful working with them over the months as we planned their magical day.
The big day arrived. Kizzy opted to stay at Pelican Bay for the night prior to the wedding and night of her wedding. A lovely wedding ceremony was held at Church of the Good Shepherd. The event then moved to Pelican Bay. After taking pictures with their bridal party and family at Pelican Bay’s Gazebo and around the hotel’s grounds, Kizzy and Ryan joined their guests on Captain’s Galley Balcony where butler passed hors d’oeuvres were served and Tru Melody Steel Pan duo entertained.
The event moved indoors for a three-course dinner. Guests enjoyed a first course of Ginger Tiger Shrimp Salad with Mango and Avocado followed by a main course of Lemon Pepper Grouper and Grilled Chicken with Carribean Rice, Seasonal Veegetables and Buerre Blanc Sauce or Peppered and Garlic Crusted Sirloin Steak Roasted served with Garlic Puree, Green Beans and Danish Blue Cheese Sauce. A dessert Guava Swirl Cheese Cake with Bourbon Whipped Cream topped off the meal. The wedding cake was by Cindy DeGregory. A candy bar featuring an array of sweets that Kizzy specially purchased in the couple’s palette of turquoise and brown included the Bahamian favorites of Benny and Coconut Cakes.
Kizzy and Ryan’s celebration then moved back to the balcony for a fun evening of dancing.
Kizzy writes in a Bahamas Wedding review:
“With only six (6) months to plan my fairy-tale wedding, I was a nervous wreck because I knew that there was no way I could have pulled this off in such a short time. Fortunately, I met Marva Munroe in the nick of time to assist in planning and coordinating the most important day of my life. As we diligently prepared for the wedding, Marva would listen attentively to my requests and offer sound advice to supplement and enhance my vision. Every time I called, emailed (sometimes in the wee hours of the morning) or wanted to schedule a meeting, she never hesitated to respond in a timely manner. Every minute detail was articulated and discussed as Marva went above and beyond the call of duty to make sure that I was happy. There were no requests that she did not hesitate to grant, which made me feel confident in her and less anxious as the big day swiftly approached.
“On November 24th, 2012, as my husband and I made our entrance into our venue, we were left speechless and blown away. The ambiance of the room was one of pure elegance! Marva incorporated lovely decor and special lighting that gave the atmosphere a romantic touch and made sure that everything went smoothly. I definitely received more than what I expected as Marva brought my dream alive that night!
“If you wish to have a beautiful, lavish, extraordinary wedding that will blow your mind, you MUST hire Marva Munroe. Her professionalism, humble demeanor, charismatic personality and exemplary work will make you fall in love with her and ease any fears that you may have as your special day approaches.
“Marva is simply MARVELOUS!”
