Couple: Erica & Dominick
Location: Paradise Island
We share with you today Erica and Dominick’s all-white Real Bahamas garden wedding. A frequent visitor to Nassau and guest of Atlantis, it was automatic that Erica’s destination wedding also take place here. Erica spent many vacations at one of her favorite destinations, Paradise Island. Furthermore, she wanted to share her love for this place with family and friends.
While researching a Nassau destination wedding, Erica spotted The Ocean Club, a Four Seasons Resort, Paradise Island. That was it! No more research. The beauty of The Cloisters and Versailles Gardens immediately caught her fancy.
Fast forward, Erica and her Mom, Maria, traveled to Nassau for a pre-wedding site visit. July 2017. We met and did a site visit at The Ocean Club. Both Erica and her Mom fell in love with The Cloisters and Versailles Gardens Terrace East. Decision made!
Meanwhile, a wedding date of July 21, 2018, was set. Planning started for Erica and Dominick’s destination wedding weekend. Erica’s brother, a graphic artist, designed her wedding stationery suite. The bride chose an all-white color palette with bling.
Accordingly, over the year, we worked together to plan a fun three-day weekend.
