Real Weddings: Blaire & David’s Nassau Bash

Couple: Blaire & David

Blaire and David came to us from New Orleans, dreaming of a destination wedding in the Bahamas. So our focus was to plan a fun-filled NOLA-infused Nassau bash. Because they favored a church ceremony, I Do’s were exchanged at St. Francis Xavier Cathedral. Following the ceremony was a reception at Blue Sail Restaurant in Nassau.

Getting Married

Wanting to incorporate personal elements into their wedding, the ceremony was conducted by the groom’s priest. We love personal touches like these to make each wedding meaningful. And this wedding was meaningful!

The Reception

The couple’s reception took place at Blue Sail Restaurant. Overlooking Sandyport Beach, it’s a great venue for couples who love great food and beautiful views. We incorporated many tropical elements into the decor. For instance, driftwood, Bird of Paradise and natural woven placemats figured prominently into the tabletop design. In addition, tropical flowers and plants are a great addition on a simple wedding cake. But guests were also given the option of trying out the towering OREO cake!

We love using gorgeous natural elements tropical-style weddings.
Orchids, Thistle and Birds of Paradise are shown here on the wedding cake from Sally’s Sweet Sensation. Looks delicious, don’t you think?

Let’s party!

Overall, the theme at Blaire and David’s wedding was FUN. Guests were entertained at every turn! In addition to a traditional steel pan duo and Junkanoo band, there was glitter face painting, light up leis and plenty of great music to keep the party going.

A Junkanoo band arrived to give guests an authentic Bahamas experience.
Love this fun-loving couple!
