Destination Wedding Bahamas: A Harbour Island StunnerWords by Courtney Kellar
Photos courtesy of Zorn Photography Anne and Brent are a Colorado couple who chose a destination wedding for a lot of the common reasons. However, their resulting Harbour Islands, Bahamas event was anything but run-of-the-mill. “We chose to do a destination wedding because we have friends and family all over the country as well as overseas and decided if everyone would be traveling to attend our wedding we should have it in an amazing place,” says Anne. “We also thought that by doing a destination wedding we would have an opportunity to spend some quality time with those who attended. You don’t feel so rushed to see everyone on the night of the wedding when you can spend the whole week with them.”
The couple’s destination wedding was not only an opportunity for their guests to get to know each other better, but also the bride and groom. “For our table numbers we found vintage postcards of various locations which had meaning to us as a couple (places we had gone on trips, where we got engaged, our hometowns, etc.),” says the bride. “We then created a backing with a table number and story about the meaning of the place on the back.”
These happy newlyweds have some final words of advice for other couples planning the destination wedding of their dreams, “There may be details you can’t plan out perfectly because you aren’t in the location, but in the end, the most important thing is to have fun and remember how wonderful it is to have all the people that mean so much to you travel to a great destination for your wedding!”
