With the rest of the Turks and Caicos suffering from massive rainstorms that threatened to submerge the islands, Kristy and Mihir were having beautiful sunsets, blue skies and a dream wedding with fantastic colors all set to a backdrop of celebrity villas that were simply breathtaking..
Over two days both Ileana and I traveled back and forth often by moonlight in the evenings!!! (though with some GPS help!) as we helped Kristy and Mihir capture every special moment of this beautiful destination wedding.
Wait until you see the color of the wedding cake too !!! WOW
Early evening Friday after a “boudoir session” that was great fun, it was time for a quick rehearsal on the beach with Dee the officiant for the ceremony…hot and sunny!
Then off to the villa next door for the rehearsal dinner on the beach and cocktails around the huge pool…Natalie from Environmental Arts had done their “thing” once again – stunning!
Kristy (far right) and the girls ..wow..
The band – Lovely and the Forbes were playing some great music.
Mihir and his Dad (and Bear the dog)
What a wonderful beach setting for a rehearsal dinner – a totally private beach on a totally private island!!
Wedding day- Ileana was jealous when she saw the pictures – had she known about these shoes on the wedding day…they might have gone missing 😉 kidding !
Kristy was very relaxed and enjoying the flow in and out of friends and family as she got ready..
At one point we moved over to the main window -OMG – “the light”…..yummy…normally with preparation shots we suffer from dark rooms…but this sudden burst of sunlight in the dark room was like a spot light..
Another angle on the dress..
Love this moment…add in some photoshop fun…very “Mad men” ?
Ahead of schedule – yes ahead – Kristy decided to take a walk around and see what was going on!!!! Awesome..
The villa has some open stairs right in the middle of the building – can you catch Kristy running upstairs?
Ileana was over with the boys creating this awesome ring shot…
I caught Kristy and her niece practicing for the aisle!
A perfect moment…
Ileana went upstairs to get a great angle .
Bear had a starring role in the wedding procession..
After the ceremony it was then down to the beach for the “stone throwing” ceremony.
I was given the challenge of getting the wedding party and bear to walk along the beach together…;-) (they said I’d never do it !!)
Then a few moment for just Kristy and Mihir to reconnect after a busy day..
Back to the villa and the infinity pool and deck – a great location for yet another wonderful Turks and Caicos sunset..
The reception downstairs was open to the beach and everyone sat at one big table – most of that table was made from one single piece of wood !!
Again great flowers and decorations by Environmental Arts..
Can you think of a better place for cocktails??
The cake kept to Kristy’s color scheme – it’s mango on the outside !!
After a few traditional dances it was then party time !!
A dream wedding in a dream location. With more luck than the Irish Kristy and Mihir had a truly wonderful wedding…many congratulations and we can’t wait to see them back for their anniversary !
