Our Wedding in Paradise - Part One

There are some moments in our lives we will never forget and it had to be our wedding day. On June 21, 2013, Mr. D and I took the blessed leap into wedding bliss on the island of Grenada, our home. Since the age of 9, I always said that I wanted to get married on the beach, so when my mother found this venue, The Aquarium Restaurant in Grenada, it was destined that we would exchange our vows here on the sand. One of best parts of planning our wedding were the DIY projects and customized accesories that truly made our wedding special.  Please enjoy a few of our photos from that day thanks to our amazing photographer, Kelon Pascal Photopgraphy

One of the DIY projects, our glittered initials and a handwritten guestbook signage all could be found at the Paper Source.

DIY programs and menu cards using Paper Source products and stamp.  The paper bag color reminds me so much of sand.

The bouquets and boutonnieres were filled with tropical loveliness from spider orchids, ferns and anthurium lilies. I sneaked in a gold camera charm as a pre-wedding surprise for my hubby to be. Florists information tba.

Pre-wedding giggles with my girls overlooking the beach. 

I saw these Fringe Flag DIY creations on AnnMarieLovesPaper and I had to recreate them for our guests to wave as we walked down the aisle. It's a beach wedding so I didn't want rice or bubbles but something that would blow lovely in the wind. Galvanize bucket from Paper Source.

The Aquarium Restaurant was a spectacular venue right on the beach. Paired with Aye' Shanti designed programs, menus and decorations and their lovely table settings including my favorite batik, it was paradise.
