Sandals Wedding: Behind the Scenes, Part 1
Posted by Darcy Miller
One thing I keep thinking is what they say is in real estate...location, location, location. When you get married by the beach (or in a garden, a vineyard, etc.) I just want to reiterate how important your location is for your wedding. So take a little time up front to find the right location for you -- far away or close to home -- then everything else will fall into place. Don't know where you're getting marred yet? Check out our vendor search tool to help find a venue that's right for you. Of if you already have a location picked out, how did you find your location, and please feel free to share any special spots you know of to help other brides.
1 The bride-to-be, Liz, and her favorite ladies hanging out and enjoying themselves pre-wedding.
2 Cute cabanas around the pool. The little tables next to them have hidden coolers to keep your beverages chilled.
3 Anthony using one of our handy Motorola two way radios. We had six, and divided them between the crew, a definite must when on location when cell service is expensive and limited.
4 Here are two of our walkies. They were all different colors so each person knew which one was theirs. We called this our "his and hers set." Great for bridal parties when on location.
5 Here's Erin holding up a palm tree branch. We had to create some tropical shadows to make the shot just perfect.
6 Our stylish style director Kate Berry. You can't go wrong with flowers in your hair and a cute pair of shades. This would be a cute bloom for a flower girl or bridesmaid.
7 One of the bars set up tea service during the day so you can come relax in the shade.
8 Here's Il Cielo restaurant between lunch and dinner.
9 How good does this look? Pool, ocean, sunshine...couldn't be a better combination.
10 Part of the expansive golf course. Wish we had time to hit the greens!
11 Hammocks and mini lounge huts are scattered across the Sandals Emerald By Resort. Great a little R&R anytime.
12 Starting to shoot the magazine details from Liz and Colin's wedding.
13 Making sure we got the perfect shot, we all took one for the team and layed in the sand to keep the tablecloth from blowing away.
14 We've talked a lot about bringing sunscreen, but don't forget to bring the bug spray too if you're getting married outside, Here at Sandals Emerald Bay, all of the rooms come prepared with bug spray so we always had some on hand.
