Bahamas Recap!

Happy Wednesday! I have been holding off sharing pictures of our wedding/Bahamas trip hoping I could get some from our photographer, but we haven’t received any yet and everyone has been asking me for some pictures… so sit back and enjoy an overview of our trip! (All these pics are just from a phone… so I will post our professional pics once I get them!)

Arriving in the Bahamas:

Just getting to The Sandals Royal Bahamian Resort. Since we flew through the night, I wore my classes!

They give you champagne upon arrival while you wait for your room to be ready.

The Beach:

image

At all Sandals Resorts, non-motorized water activities are all included! Here my friend Heather and I are kayaking!

image

My favorite activity there was the catamaran!

My favorite spot on the island!

The Rehearsal:

image

The bridal party went into town to the Greek Orthodox Church for the rehearsal, then we went back to the resort for dinner with everyone and a fun filled night!

image

After dinner we played the “shoe game” to see how well we know each other.

image

It was so much fun… and we did really well! (we better after 12 years of dating!)

image

Then we all went over to the theater where they had nightly entertainment. Here is the Junkanoo band!

image

The fire dancers!

image

Us on stage learning a Caribbean dance… please note Erik front and center! (I wish you could see his moves!)

image

Our group was called onstage for an amazing game of limbo… this is my dad getting low! He became an instant hit with the crowd (as he always does). We would randomly be walking around the resort later in the week and people would come up to him and high five him saying “Yeah Uncle Nick!”.

Wedding Day!

As I previously said, I only have pictures people sent me from the day of the wedding. It’s kind of funny because I don’t have many pictures of Erik and I since the photographer took us to take pictures during cocktail hour, so none of our guests were there to snap pics!

In the hotel room, last touches before we left for the church. My friend Taryn has been one of my best friends since we were 12!

I love that someone captured this picture. You can see our photographer taking a picture from the front.

Here we all are!

Let the party begin!

She made all my dreams come true! I love my mom πŸ™‚

Partial group shot to give you an idea of the table! We had a long table on the sand under a tent with chandeliers. I brought the table runner and candles.

Best Trip Ever!

Some of the ladies that helped make our wedding week so memorable!
