Amanda + Max: A Plantation Style Wedding in Barbados

posted by Candice September 14, 2016 2 Comments

I’m so happy to share this amazing (and HUGE!) blog post with you– Amanda and Max’s wedding story!

You know those couples who spend their whole wedding day just smiling? In fact, every time I had a chance to meet with Amanda and Max about their wedding when they visited Barbados– they were always smiling. When Max proposed to Amanda, they decided that they wanted to have a destination wedding where Max grew up and there was no place more perfect than his family’s plantation home on the South Coast in Christ Church, Barbados.

With sprawling views of the sea behind them, they exchanged vows in front of 140 of their closest friends and family under a beautiful Chuppah. Right after the ceremony, they dashed away into a secret garden to spend a few moments together, alone, soaking in the moment. I think more couples should do this– it truly is one of the very few moments you’ll have together all by yourself!

Their guests enjoyed cocktail hour by the pool under the warm glow of cafe lights, and spent their evening under a gorgeous tent we designed with the help of our friends at Milestone Events. There was laughter and tears through some very heartfelt toasts, and lots of dancing after courtesy of the amazing local band, Two Mile Hill.

Some of my favorite details of the day are the welcome bag their guests received with a cute hangover kit and custom tumbler, the amazing custom chandeliers in blush pink, and the gorgeous calligraphy signs we had locally made.

Many thanks to Gina Francesca for these gorgeous images! Thank you Amanda and Max for letting me be part of such a beautiful and heartfelt day. It was truly one of my favorite weddings!
