Jimmy Rollins and Johari Smith Wedding in Cayman

Weather perfect! Soft gentle breeze, and sunshine in January!

Simple island elegance, and the pictures will speak for themselves! Planned, designed and produced by the JoAnne Brown Events/ Celebrations, this is a wedding to remember! Celebrations Senior Wedding Planner, Ahmed Elkaswani was the Wedding Planner for the wedding, while the design, decor and production were done by myself and Ann Ogden; as well as an exceedingly incredible Celebrations team that made this all come together and happen.

The Celebrations team and I would like to thank the new Mr. & Mrs. Jimmy Rollins for choosing the Cayman Islands and Celebrations in making their dream wedding come true! It was such a great pleasure working with you. We're absolutely over the moon in knowing that we have hit a home run with your wedding!

A Red Letter Wedding Day in the Cayman Islands

When I personally saw this wedding at the Grand Old House, I literally stopped in my own tracks! The use of the red for this wedding is simply glorious! Just look at how bold each red element is. Ahmed, a Celebrations wedding coordinator extra-ordinaire, worked closely with the bride and the Celebrations Design Team in putting together a wedding that made everyone present see red, literally!

and the ambient lighting all around the wedding reception area.

Indeed, it was a Red Letter Day for this stunning Guatemalan bride and her dashing groom!

Congratulations Daniella & Gregory!

Christmas in Cayman by Celebrations - In Retrospect

You know we all love the time of year when Christmas rolls around – At Celebrations It’s such a pleasure to design custom made Christmas décor for the islands diverse array of properties.

Our design team visit properties and start the drawing board process where we start to study the architecture of the building, we carefully note the wash of colours used in both the exterior and the interior, and finally we consider the surroundings and the environment of the premises.

It’s important to blend into the design a glimpse of what makes our decor personal. So always when designing commissioned Christmas Décor we find out specifically about our client, and what they love – and somewhere during the design process everything comes together beautifully! The end result is a creative, festive display that is unique to each client & their premises.
