Wanna see a dream come true? Here’s a real wedding with a bride rocking a pink Vera Wang wedding gown, she really looked like a princess!
Melissa and John had many hobbies but it was their mutual love of deep sea fishing that led them to spend a myriad of hours cruising and fishing in the Caribbean waters. John had bought a large fishing yacht which he naturally christened ‘The Melissa’. One of the first marine adventures the couple embarked on was a trip to Harbour Island in the Bahamas. The island was a match made in island heaven, and 21 years after that the couple chose it as their wedding venue.
Melissa was looking for a spark of magic that only a pink gown could provide. Cinderella may have worn blue to her ball but her first choice was a deconstructed pink creation of her own. It was exactly the inspiration she needed, found, custom made and altered at Vera Wang. She would walk down the aisle to the theme song from Cinderella, ‘Strong’.
Once the color of the dress was decided, Melissa decided to match the color on her save the dates and wedding invitations. She had pink vases for the flowers, pink fish place cards and knot rope candle holders a nod to John’s love of the sea and fishing. No ordinary guest book would do. A blank canvas was placed on an easel for the guests to record their wishes for the happy couple.
The couple provided guests with welcome bags containing crisps, truffles and custom made water bottles to keep guests well hydrated and an emergency kit to help and heal.
