When I first saw the ceremony location for this wedding, I did a double-take. It looked like something out of a dream. I quickly realized it was actually an amazing wedding set in a tropical paradise, full of sophistication, elegance, and a relaxed island sensibility, that merged together to create a fantasy-like affair.
Vanessa and Gavin wed last April in Turks and Caicos. Not only did the bride and groom plan three days of festivities, they welcomed their guests with thought and care. On the first night, guests received island survival bags complete with snorkel gear, sarongs, sunscreen, insect repellent, and underwater cameras. The following night, fresh-baked cookies and milk with personalized notes from “Ness and Gav” popped up in their rooms.
Photographer Ira Lippke was there to capture everything from the welcome dinner to the beach party to the wedding -- all designed by Special Occasions Event Planning. Tomorrow, you'll get to see rest of their incredible weekend.
Adam Sjoberg, also from Ira Lippke Studios, was on hand, too. He created the wedding video below.
