A wedding in paradise: has a nice ring to it, doesn’t it? These images by Stephen DeVries show a couple who opted to have just that, a sunlit wedding day in Hopetown, the Abacos, the Bahamas. If you dream of an island wedding, you’ll love the laid-back approach that the tropical ambience brings to the order of the day. For wedding-day prep, give your maids multicolored island wraps as bridesmaids’ gifts and you’ll literally have “pretty maids all in a row,” even while they’re getting their glamour treatments in preparation for the celebration. Then, slip into your magical white gown, have your maids in smoky mauve, and pose with your bouquets against the backdrop of water and palm trees…can it get any better?

Your groom and his men look superb in cream tuxedos as they “process” casually down the glowing sand. A quick shot against a deep-aqua porch makes for a striking photo; then, they’re ready to get to the church on time. Fortunately, you’re on your way — via boat! Once the ceremony is done, your island’s gorgeous natural scenery plays its starring role in pictures: pose with the sun — and a red-striped lighthouse — at your back. Carry the island theme into your cake with a delightful seahorse “bride and groom,” string lights from a palm tree on the center of the beach, and finish the night with a grand fireworks show. Unforgettable? Yes — and very doable. So start your island planning now, and have a tropical paradise wedding you’ll remember forever.
