A note from the bride: Some of the best advice we received leading up to our wedding was to slow down. There are so many elements that go into planning, and the week leading up to the wedding brings a whole new set of surprises! When we chose to get married on an island in the Bahamas, the idea was to create a moment for our most cherished friends and family to be together in one of our favorite places, so it was even more important that we reminded ourselves to slow down and soak in all the goodness of being in love and being surrounded by love. Whether through morning yoga or walking on the beach each day with my sister, we were mindful of always being totally present and in the moment.
And don’t sweat the small stuff, no matter what, it will all come together. So many people went above and beyond for us leading up to the big day, and the week of, and we were constantly reminded of how lucky we are to be surrounded by such incredible family and friends. Your wedding is as much about you two as it is about the people you have chosen to be in your lives, and it’s the perfect opportunity to celebrate that!
something old: My grandmother's handkerchief and a vintage lace handkerchief that was a shower gift from one of my favorite women
something new: Silver mesh Saint Laurent heels
something borrowed: Brock Collection earrings and a diamond bracelet of my mothers
something blue: Aquamarine Marie Helene de Taillac ring
bridesmaids: A mix of pale colored dresses to compliment the pink sand (and church!) including Ferragamo, Chloe, Ralph Lauren, The Row and Rochas. They each carried little bunches of white frangipani, lovingly put together by two of our very best friends the morning of the wedding, and wore a tiny crown of local greens in their hair.
