Turks and Caicos Islands, The Veranda resort, Mindy and Dan’s Wedding

Mindy and and Dan are from Chicago and planned their destination wedding with the help of Shameka from the all inclusive resort Veranda.

With a boat cruise and BBQ planned for the rehearsal dinner (yay!)nd a beach wedding and reception for 30 on the Saturday, this as going to be  fun event.

Bright Caribbean colors, DIY details, family and friends it was all covered.


I captured a few pictures of the Veranda whilst waiting for a few minutes for the Sail Provo catamaran to negotiate the waves on the beach. These would play a role on the wedding day too!

Once aboard everyone relaxed and enjoyed the perfect blue skies and sunshine of Turks and Caicos!

Mindy and Dan had bought some cool sunglasses for everyone – fun !

Sunset just went on and on and on and turned into this beautiful sky.

The bride’s nephew Gabe (4) was following me around the dinner, so (with a little help) I had him hold the camera and get this picture of Grandpa !! Great job Gabe..

Wedding Day !

The bride’s bouquet was on a plastic handle that could then fit into this display for later !!

The modern connected bride? Mindy does a quick status update before she walks out the door??

Now those waves on the Beach meant a quick venue change, so the ceremony now moved to the Grace Bay Club –  a sister resort 7 minutes away.

Everyone was having some fun on the beach !

A quick dash back to the Veranda, where sadly the weather had meant a more under cover rather than the palm trees and lanterns, but the Veranda team took it in their stride and got it all done, and Mindy and Dan and all the guests were happy too !
