Kimberly and Trevor did not want a traditional big noisy wedding, so they decided to escape to Harbour Island to get married on their own.
Parents and family knew about this decision and were not able to say no, as Kimberly and Trevor decided to ask their permission during a family member’s wedding where everybody was so stressed about the organization. So, that day, parents were so happy to not have another wedding to organize!
FROM THE COUPLE:
HOW THEY MET & THE PROPOSAL
“Trevor and I met 2 years ago on a blind date. I knew he was the man of my dreams when without knowing anything about me suggested tacos and margaritas. Our engagement was perfect for us because it included my golden doodle Hampton at Trevor’s home in Atlanta” says Kimberly.
“Choosing Harbor Island for our wedding was an easy choice because we wanted it to be simple and relaxing. Having traveled to the Bahamas many times as a couple it was the perfect place for our elopement.”
“One of the many benefits of getting married on a beautiful island is that I didn’t have to do any decorating, the island is picture perfect as it is” mentions Kimberly.
“We had an incredible event planner/florist that put my vision to reality by using varying shades of white Hydrangeas, lilies and greenery from the island.”
“One of my favourite things about my day was how Paola our photographer captured every moment perfectly. She was able to capture traditional wedding photos but also create photos that are so artistic” says Kimberly.
“Continuing with the theme of simple, relaxed and classic. I chose an ivory Pronovias gown and had the beading removed. For the groom we went with a very slim tailored Bononos light navy suit, a crisp white Alton Lane monogrammed dress shirt. Since we wanted our wedding to reflect us as much as possible I chose to wear my hair down with loose waves and the groom opted to keep his suit causal for the island theme with no tie or socks.”
THE MOST ANTICIPATED MOMENT OF THE DAY
“As cliché as it sounds I was excited about seeing Trevor for the first time as I walked down the aisle” mentions Kimberly.
