Couple: Jacquelyn & Peter
Jacquelyn and Peter planned an intimate Nassau destination wedding for 25 family and friends. But, the couple’s guest list continued to grow. It swelled to 70 guests! The bride nor groom had visited Nassau. Her brother had. Everyone wants to travel to The Islands of The Bahamas to attend a destination wedding, right?
Jacquelyn shared their vision with me on the phone. They chose The Reef and Cove Towers Atlantis as host resorts. Their vision: a ceremony at Ocean’s Edge Atlantis followed by a yacht experience on a private, secluded beach. Sunset. Tiki torches. Junkanoo Rush Out. Delicious cuisine. Great music. We got to work!
The bride said it would last two hours. The couple’s long-time family friend Rabbi David Laslow conducted a beautiful, emotional Jewish ceremony at Ocean’s Edge. At 3 p.m. women gathered at Ocean’s Edge Chapel while men gathered on the Deck. A wonderful Circle Ceremony for the women and the men attending.
Following the amazing ceremony, we transported guests to the Atlantis II at Hurricane Hotel Marina for a sunset sail to a private beach. Hors-d’oeuvres, drinks music by DJ Ampero set the mood for an amazing evening. Additionally, a delightful dinner buffet was served.
Jacquelyn was a vision in her Lois London Inc. gown and hairstyling and makeup by Lucy Lu.
Nassau Destination Wedding Reception on the Beach
The group arrived, the yacht anchored. Then, guests were transported via small boats to a beach on the North Shore of Rose Island.

Peter and Jacquelyn’s Jewish ceremony took place on the lush grounds of The Cove’s Ocean’s Edge Atlantis. Many of Peter’s co-stars from the hit show The Orville were present to witness the impassioned ceremony.
Low-key luxury was the name of the game for The Orville’s Peter Macon and his blushing bride, Jacquelyn. The all-white and greenery simple centerpieces were perfect for the natural outdoor reception. Moreover, guests were at ease in this tropical paradise.
A Junkanoo Rush Out, the highlight of any Bahamas destination wedding!
