Exuma Bahamas Weddings: Gina and Chris’ Real Wedding

Exuma Bahamas Weddings

It may have been love at first sight.  It may have been the love of boating that they share.  However, it was their love for these islands that brought them to Exuma to tie the knot. Gina and Chris met at Baker’s Bay, Abaco, on a Girls Boating weekend.  A mutual friend introduced them.  That was three years ago.  The rest is history.

Chris sailed Gina’s family’s boat to Georgetown, Exuma, for the wedding. Of course, while on the island, boating excursions were a must.

An outdoor dinner on Friday, live music by Us Two Band got the three-day celebration off to a roaring start.  On the wedding day, the bride was pampered at Grand Isle’s spa.  In addition, the bride, maid of honor and mothers had on location beauty services.
