Bahamas Wedding Venue: Spanish Main Beach

Bahamas wedding venue, Spanish Main Beach on Grand Bahama Island, Saturday, May 14, 2016 was the site of Janee & James’ sweet destination wedding ceremony! They exchanged vows during a gorgeously bright sunshine evening on the white powdery sand of Spanish Main Beach.  The Austin, Texas couple were married by Bahamas Marriage Officiant Rev. Dr. Emmette J. Weir.

Thirty-two family members and friends travelled to the Bahamas for this lovely couple’s destination wedding weekend. Host hotel was Pelican Bay at Lucaya.

Guests were feted at a welcome reception poolside overlooking the bay at Pelican Bay.

Just the two of us … James and Janee stroll the beach taking it all in as Mr. and Mrs. following their wedding ceremony.  A ferry boat transported guests to and from the beach ceremony.  The ferry ride is an idyllic 15 minute boat ride from the hotel.
