Bride and Groom in Love with the Islands of Bahamas
Couple: Staniel Cay Yacht Club
Megan and Christian are in love with the Islands of the Bahamas. The Islands of the Bahamas, their stunning waters, fishing, sand bars are among the Bahamas favorites of the bride and groom. Megan and Christian spend many a weekend fishing in the Bahamas. A short hop to West End, Grand Bahama Island from their home in Delray, Florida to deep-sea fish and enjoy their catch at a cooked meal happens quite often. Not only do they enjoy fishing here, but they also enjoy family vacation time in spots like Spanish Wells, Harbour Island, and the Abacos.
So, naturally, when it came time to tie the knot, hands down, a Bahamas wedding venue was a must. The beautiful Staniel Cay Yacht Club was the pick. See more about Staniel Cay, Exuma Cays. But, Megan, knowing the islands, immediately turned to a planner to navigate importing goods for the wedding, decor, and other details for their multi-event celebration. Being in love islands of the Bahamas afforded the couple with extensive knowledge of mores and norms.
Planning a Staniel Cay Yacht Club wedding meant organizing many details including shipping via Fort Lauderdale, Bahamas Customs, and more.
Planning at Staniel Cay Yacht Club
An amazing tablescape for the welcome cocktail reception and dinner and wedding reception dinner was most important to Megan, her mother-in-law, and stepmother. Our floral designer and I met with the ladies at their Delray Country Club, South Florida to create a mockup of a tablescape. Being in retails, Megan had her own ideas on tablecloths, napkins, flowers, conch shells, and more.
Megan and Christian’s midweek celebration immediately kicked off with a bang! Arriving on Staniel Cay via the convenience of Maker’s Air from Fort Lauderdale, the Delray Beach couple and their guests embarked upon an excursion to the Saddle Back Cay. Guests returned to their rooms to be welcomed by gorgeous Welcome Bags loaded with hand-picked goodies including Bahamian bread and postcard for mailing from Staniel Cay.
In Love with Islands of The Bahamas Leads to Exploration
The couple’s love with the Islands of the Bahamas led to the groom taking his buddies on a fishing trip the morning of the wedding. Meanwhile, Megan and her girls indulged in a leisurely walk through the town before having breakfast at Staniel Cay Yacht Club. Thereafter, it was relaxation then beauty pampering in Cottage.
The weather on the wedding day was pure bliss. Clear blue skies, sunshine, comfortable temperatures. Exploration was key and factored into the ceremony. We traveled to Staniel Cay Ridge Beach for a most beautiful ceremony with cliffs in the distance. Then, it was a Junkanoo Parade through the town back to the Yacht Club. A truck carried the Junkanoo Rush nearly to the Club. Then, everyone took to foot, bride and groom included, to Rush into the evening festivities. The Parade gathered in the Cocktail Hour spot for some serious rushing!
Indoor Dinner and Outdoor Dancing
Following Cocktail House in the Yacht Club’s Courtyard overlooking the ocean, guests moved to the Dining Room where they were feted at a multi-course dinner.
The Tropic Breeze Band entertained the bride, groom, and guests outdoors. A sparkler sendoff ended the evening.
