Mallory + David = A Destination Wedding Done Just Right

Mallory and David met during their college years in Purdue and have been dating for 8 years until they tied the knot last May.

Cayman was the natural choice for the location of their destination wedding as Mallory's family have vacationed to the Cayman Islands for years. During these vacations,  Mallory and  her family witnessed quite a number of weddings right on the beach. These weddings have left an impression  so much so that Mallory, while still in high school, told her dad that the Cayman Islands is where she wants to be married.
We just love how fun these photos are! Check out Mallory's unique sandals and David's colorful socks!

Fast forward to 2011. Mallory is making that statement she made in her youth a reality. A wedding in the Cayman Islands it was to be!

Mallory has emailed Celebrations and was subsequently introduced to Mary Ann. Mallory: "I loved Mary Ann!  She was professional, easy to work with, organized and efficient.  She made the long distance planning process so much easier and put me at ease.  For about 10 months, I would send her email after email and she always responded quickly with information.  I would recommend Mary Ann to anyone getting married in the Cayman Islands, she made all my ideas reality! Any problems that did arise over the planning process, she was very quick to help eliminate and give recommendations.  She knew what she was doing and had the experience to know what the best options were. "
We adore how Mallory and her bridal party infused some fun in color with these brightly colored sandals!

Mallory recalls her wedding to be perfect for what she and David envisioned it to be.  They only had family and close friends, so it was the intimate affair they wanted.  They chose the Governor's Lawn at the Westin which is the perfect spot to have all their wedding events in one spot....the ceremony on the beach, cocktail  and dinner reception on the lawn and then dancing in the ballroom overlooking the wedding dinner reception.  The weather was perfect, lighting was great and everyone was in vacation mode, so the mood was right.
What's a Cayman Islands destination wedding without a jump shot?

Mallory and David chose simple decor elements to complement the gorgeous backdrop that Cayman has to offer. Flowers were limited to the bouquets and candles were used as table centerpieces which set the perfect mood for outside.  A large moon hovered over the party, which gave it a very unique feel along with white linens and a punch of yellow.

When asked what was the highlight of her wedding, Mallory reminisces:  "The highlight of my day was during our ceremony, when I looked back at all of our guests and could see the cocktail hour and dinner area set-up, it was an awesome moment.  Everyone we love in one place, a beautiful evening was about to start and the place looked just awesome. "

We couldn't have said it any better! Congratulations again Mallory and David!
