This gorgeous beach wedding at The Sandy Lane in Barbados is giving us major wanderlust fever today! Allison and Chadwick found the perfect spot for their intimate destination wedding and had the time of their lives on their special day surrounded by their family and closest friends all dressed in pink!
We love the bride’s bridal beach look, the groom’s sleek suit, the cute decor and we can’t forget Allison’s ring, which may go down as one of our absolute favourites. *See more below!
Special thanks to AW member Weddings in Barbados for sharing this lovely wedding with us, and enjoy the beauty below.
FROM THE COUPLE & PHOTOGRAPHER:
HOW THEY MET
Allison was friends with Chad’s sister, so they had met on FaceTime a few times before meeting in person. They knew of each other but did not have plans to meet in person. Allison and Chad officially met by happenstance—by running into each other at a bar in Nashville, Tennessee, called Tin Roof.
It’s a hotspot for locals and college students on Demonbreun Street. Allison was out with some friends, and Chad was out with some friends. Allison, Chad, and their friends migrated to The Back Corner to watch DJ AyDamn perform and to dance on stage with friends. They got engaged within a year, and they got married 1.5 years after that. The rest is history.
THE WISH LIST FOR THE COUPLE
The bride didn’t have any expectations or demands. She winged everything.
THE WEDDING VENUE
The bride’s parents, Rick and Kristie Isaacson, had visited Sandy Lane and golfed on the Green Monkey. Kristie suggested Sandy Lane Hotel as the venue after the couple’s wedding planning in South Lake Tahoe, Nevada, fell through. The couple is so glad that happened!
THE WEDDING DRESS
Both the dress and the matching veil are Maggie Sottero (Tuscany Lynette).
ANY SPECIAL REQUESTS
“Not that I remember… You executed everything without my direction or input and pulled off everything flawlessly. Your shots with the veil in the air on the beach are incredible!!” – Allison, the lovely bride.
FAVOURITE MOMENTS FROM THE COUPLE’S DAY
My favorite moments would have to be the perfect sunset that occurred that day, with the dance session at the reception a close second!!
BRIDE’S FAVOURITE MOMENTS
- “Dad walking me down the aisle to Chad.
- I enjoyed how fun the dancing was. Our guests knew how to have fun, and they didn’t know how to keep their shirts on by the end of the night. LOL!
- We consumed so many espresso martinis that we broke the espresso machine and had to replace it.
- I hardly had to plan anything for the wedding herself, because Joselle Dunn at Sandy Lane is so incredible at her job.”
Thank you to Allison, Chadwick and Weddings in Barbados for sharing this lovely destination wedding from Barbados with us!
