Lisa and Jeff always knew when they got married it would be an exotic destination wedding. After meeting while on residency for internal medicine and falling in love they thought this was the perfect way to start their married life together.
The couple from Seattle, Washington travelled along with fifty-five guests to Grand Cayman in March this year. The backdrop for their wedding was the Villas of the Galleon and Luca Restaurant on the amazing Seven Mile Beach. They chose this location because they wanted an intimate wedding with only close friends and family. A destination wedding was ideal as the couple wanted to feel like they were on vacation with all their favorite people.
They opted for a casual beach sunset ceremony with vintage inspired décor. Their color theme of oranges and blue was the perfect compliment to the vibrant sunset and kaleidoscope of blues in the Caribbean ocean. The steelpan music at the ceremony was just the perfect addition of classic Caribbean flavor. Lisa looked stunning in a sheaf gown with lace overlay and jeweled belt by Kelly Faetanini. Jeff complimented her in a tan two-button suite by J Crew.
One of the highlights for the couple was getting to write their own vows which they only revealed to each other at the alter. It was a moment that bought both laughter and even some tears from each other and they guests. The event then moved to the Luca restaurant for cocktails and a sumptuous dinner. The rest of the night was spent dancing to their favorite tunes with the help of DJ Craig.
One recommendation the couple had for other destination wedding seekers was to start planning way in advance and invest in a good, reputable wedding planner to guide you along the way. “We used Celebrations Ltd. and this made the process easy and stress free she says” she says.
