Real Weddings Bahamas – Kerry & Toby

Real Weddings Bahamas takes a look at Kerry and Toby’s Grand Bahamas Wedding story.  Visitors to Grand Bahama Island for ten years, the couple stayed at Kerry’s father’s condominium that overlooks Pelican Bay Hotel across the harbor. She and Toby vacationed as friends and returned home to Holyoke, Massachusetts a couple.  On another trip to the Bahamas, they became engaged.  With this background, it only made sense that Pelican Bay was the Grand Bahamas wedding location for the couple to get hitched.

Being very familiar with the island, Kerry and Toby knew the exact activities to plan for their guests’ enjoyment.  One of the 10 Best activities in the Bahamas, Wednesday Night Fish Fry at Smith”s Point, was a must.  So were a guys fishing trip while the girls and kids went on a Pat and Diane Fantasia snorkeling tour as well as a charter of Island Times from Reef Tours for a Sunset Booze Cruise. Fun, fun, fun.

Kerry’s most favorite experience wedding week? “The entire wedding day AND wedding week were just perfect,” said Kerry. “The wedding day, from beginning to end, was just the most amazing day of our lives.  Every minute of that day will never be forgotten.”  Kerry and Toby tied the knot at a beautiful afternoon ceremony before family and friends at Spanish Main Beach Saturday, April 26, 2014. An outdoor reception at Pelican Bay’s Neptune’s Terrace with Bell Channel Bay as a backdrop followed.

Guests all said, Kerry relates, multiple times, that it was “the best wedding they had ever been to.  All of the details that Marva and her team paid attention to made everything perfect.  Guests LOVED the boat ride to the beach, the lights and luminaries at Neptune’s Terrace.  The DJ was fabulous (DJ Earl), and the the staff was absolutely amazing.”  Kerry says, without doubt, that she would recommend a wedding at Pelican Bay to others.

“Marva and her team, as well as all of the staff at Pelican Bay Hotel, are the best at what they do.  Everyone made sure that all week we were taken care of.  The were always checking in with us as well as our guests to see if anyone needed anything.  They made everyone feel so special and were so friendly.  We can’t thank everyone enough for making our wedding the most amazing time of our lives!!”
