Exuma Bahamas Elopement: Christina and Brandon

Couple: Christina & Brandon

Christina and Brandon of New York wanted an intimate Exuma Bahamas wedding for 25 close family and friends.  But, the process of a guest list became too complex; the list mushroomed.  So, the couple decided on an Exuma Bahamas elopement.  Our conversations and plans quickly reverted to arrangements for two.  Christina sent me her inspiration.  Thus, another type of planning began.

Originally from South Africa, Brandon met Christina through a childhood friend from his country.  He randomly met this friend in New York.  Then, they lost contact.  A year later, they connected again.  Brandon was invited to a party at his friend’s house.  Lo and behold, who was also a guest at the party?  Christina!  Not only was she a guest at the party, but she lived across the street from Brandon’s friend.  The two were introduced and the rest was history.

Exuma a Favorite Getaway

The bride and groom love the quiet, secluded, pristine Exumas.  It was a delight to return to a favorite spot of theirs to say I Do.  On Thursday, October 18, 2018, the couple exchanged vows at a Grand Isle Emerald Beach ceremony.  They then enjoyed a romantic dinner at Grand Isle.  Thereafter, the two enjoyed a honeymoon at some of Exuma’s hot spots … Coco Plum Beach, Chat ‘n Chill, Santana’s and more.
