Bahamas Weddings: Brooke and Greg’s Intimate Fall Event at Pelican Bay – Part 1

Bahamas weddings on a stunningly beautiful beach just before sunset is the idyllic scenario for most destination wedding couples being married in our islands.  Greg and Brooke were no exception.  This New York couple tied the knot Saturday, November 15, 2014 before 22 guests from Dayton, New York, Los Angeles, Charlotte in an afternoon ceremony.

A cool coral and cream color palette against the aquamarine backdrop oceanside brought a sweet feel to this Fall affair.  Coral and cream roses and gerbera daisies bouquets, a coral and cream focal point at beach ceremony with white chair covers and coral chair ties, white reception table linens with coral napkins and cream chair linens woven onto back of chair. Cream and Coral roses in glass vase for centerpieces along with candles … all combining to create a pretty set.

Guests traveled to the ceremony via a whimsical 15 minute ferry boat ride.

Bahamas Weddings Venue: Pelican Bay, a Favorite

Brooke said she and Greg chose Pelican Bay as “it offers a prime location and great accommodations for an amazing price. We wanted a beautiful location for our wedding/reception, great accommodations for ourselves and our guests as well as reasonable prices to encompass everyone’s budget. We felt Pelican Bay Hotel was a great place to meet these expectations.”

Pelican Bay, a favorite Bahamas wedding venue, is situated on a peninsula, away from it all but near it all.  

Brooke and Greg said their “guests loved our wedding. We have had several compliments from everyone saying what an amazing time they had. The guests expressed how well taken care of they felt and how much fun they had. Everyone was so impressed with how every little detail of the wedding weekend was planned out perfectly. Everything from the ease of pickup from the airport, to the beautifully planned Welcome Party/Bonfire, all the way to the flawlessness of the wedding ceremony and reception.  Several guests even have told us we had the best wedding they have ever been to.”
