In order to inspire brides and couples who are considering an elopement or micro-wedding in Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands, Celebrations Weddings & Events teamed up with Jenna Leigh Photography and local professionals to create a romantic, beachy bridal styled shoot with endless destination wedding inspiration.
On a widespread beach of the Kimpton Seafire Resort + Spa, the wedding team behind the shoot set up two stunning scenes: a beautiful ceremony with the Caribbean Sea as an exquisite natural backdrop and an intimate beach reception tablescape in the sand on Seven Mile Beach. The bride was stunning in a relaxed, yet refined, gown from Fabulous Frocks of KC, with her hair and makeup styled in a gorgeous laid-back look by Jackie Soriano.
A timeless, romantic design scheme was implemented for the outdoor beach wedding, along with a few modern-bohemian touches. The result was a stunning setting for either an elopement or intimate destination wedding. Romantic blushes and neutral tones created a soft, dreamy ambience that complemented the dried palms and pampas grass of the décor to honor the natural neutrals provided by the iconic Caribbean ocean and sunlit beach.
Wanting to highlight the local talent of the Cayman Islands and the Caribbean, special touches were incorporated, such as stationery by Studio Two Sixteen that featured illustrations to honor the venue. The ceremony featured a custom-built archway for the vow exchange embellished with dried palm fronds, pampas grass, and elegant florals; guests would find their seats on wooden benches topped with blush and ivory pillows. The tablescape for the reception showcased bold colorful goblets, golden accents, unique centerpieces in blush and blue tones, and a sensational setting beneath the sea-grape trees with views of the open ocean.
To further inspire couples planning their weddings, fun additions included a Prosecco van adorned with a balloon installation that served up glasses of bubbly on tap, as well as a colorful wedding cake by The Cake Studio featuring blue, white, and gold layers decorated with crisp white feathers and fresh flowers in pink and peach to provide a boho twist.
Take a look at the setting and décor in the slideshow above to inspire your intimate destination wedding, micro-wedding, or elopement and offer a feel of intimacy, romance, and personalization for a celebration in the Cayman Islands and beyond.
