Colleen + Mike : A Classic Grand Cayman Destination Wedding

This classic tropical beach wedding is oozing with bright, simple and elegant design elements. With the gorgeous Seven Mile Beach as the chosen location for Colleen and Mike's wedding, Mother Nature has given this destination wedding a natural yet amazing backdrop of gorgeous sunny skies, pristine white beach, and calming blue Caribbean seas. Throw in rustic decor and beautiful tropical flowers, you have the perfect recipe for a memorable tropical-inspired wedding.

For the wedding ceremony, rows and rows of bamboo chairs were lined up forming an aisle way leading to this stunning bamboo arch fully accentuated with willow, sea grape leaves, orange and purple flowers that included Gerberas and Calla Lilies. We love how the bright colors coming from the flowers just simply pop-out against the beautiful Cayman blue ocean!

Colleen chose orange as the main color for her bridal bouquet using Calla Lilies, Orange "Wow" Roses, Tulips and White Freesias. Her bridesmaids opted for Purple Lisanthuses, Orange Roses, and Green Cymbidiums.  We just love how the bright flowers stood out against the pale lavender bridesmaids' dresses! The men looked dapper in their suits with a bright pop of color from their boutonnieres.

For the cocktail  and dinner reception, simplicity was still key to this wedding. Brown linens were accented by punches of color from flowers and sea grape leaves arranged in simple geometric glass vases. Purple and Orange hued pillows also dotted the lounge areas.

We absolutely L-O-V-E these colorful photos. Colleen was  just the picture of a glowing bride!!
Congratulations Colleen and Mike!!!
