Agnes & Jimmy had an intimate destination wedding with just 25 of their closest friends and family. They all boarded a cruise from New York and landed in Nassau on Thanksgiving Day where they had an intimate ceremony on Cabbage Beach. After the wedding, they took portrait photos at the gorgeous French Cloisters at The One And Only Ocean Club in Nassau – a French monastery that William Randolph Hearst purchased, imported and eventually rebuilt on the island. It is such a gorgeous destination wedding venue and I am so honored to share it with you today. A huge thanks goes out to Caroline & Evan for sending us this beautiful album and telling us a little more about their experience shooting this intimate destination wedding in Nassau.
It was a windy day- 35 mph gusts to be exact – and I was almost sure that there was a tropical storm no one told us about. We met the wedding party at the cruise pier and boarded the tour bus to head to the private beach. I loved the setup so much- a circular arrangement of chair for all the guests. The wind was so crazy that all the wedding guests ended up staying around the bride and groom so they could hear the vows! Agnes had a quick DIY bouquet of Bougainvillea made on the fly by a guest. The gardens really are the most amazing place- something that you can tell didn’t originate on the island but somehow belongs right there with the sounds of the sea and smell of salty air.
