A Brilliant Destination Wedding: Bahamas

I had the pleasure of escaping to the sun and sand-filled Paradise Island in the Bahamas amidst this endless winter.  From the gorgeous surrounding water to the unbelievably soft and inviting sand, the Bahamas are the perfect place for your destination wedding!  A quick non-stop flight from New York City (and many other US cities) the island truly is a paradise.  The regal One & Only Ocean Club and the sexy Cove at Atlantis are ideal settings for a memorable and ocean breeze-filled wedding. One&Only Ocean Club expertly balances the lush, natural beauty of the Bahamas with grand European style.  The Beach Deck overlooking the sparkling waters of the Caribbean provides the perfect backdrop for couples planning an intimate seaside wedding.  For a garden-inspired wedding, the resort’s signature Versailles Gardens feature a 12th Century French Augustinian Cloister makes for a truly one-of-a-kind venues.  From the beautiful beachfront villas to the amazing amenities that One&Only Ocean Club offers, this tranquil and elegant resort wonderfully accommodates wedding ceremonies, receptions and honeymoons.



Ocean Club Wedding

For a sexy, lively wedding vibe, there's The Cove Atlantis.  Whether it’s the tranquil stretch of sand reserved just for guests or the Miami-esque, adults-only pool "Cain at the Cove" this property has a sleek, young and hip feel.  If your dream is to get married barefoot in the sand with the waves crashing in the distance, The Cove is your mecca.  You can host your reception at a ton of different places - from an underwater aquarium with real fish swimming by, to a poolside party featuring a live Bahamian band.  And, my sources tell me that an ancient chapel on the property is being rebuilt - perfect for couples hoping to get married in a church setting!
