Real Wedding | Janine + Chris

At today’s Real Wedding, the only thing more beautiful than the amazing beachside location was the look in the eyes of the bride and groom when they said “I Do.” The island setting of the Turks and Caicos provided the perfect setting for this elegant yet laid back destination wedding.

The ceremony

Our ceremony was held on the beach front garden, we were supposed to have a beach wedding but on the morning of our wedding the tide was so high it was impossible for them to set up on the beach, so we moved it to the lawn, I was bummed at first but once I saw the set up I realized it was absolutely beautiful!

The reception

The reception was held on the Estate Lawn and was the perfect setting under the stars for our intimate affair.

How Janine felt in her wedding dress

Glamorous,  Sexy and Sophisticated! My dress hugged my curves just enough to be sexy without being too much so. I loved the flower detailing and the delicate organza made it very fairy like and enchanting, but the cut of the dress kept it all looking sophisticated and glamorous!

Why Janine decided to sell her wedding dress

I had always known I would sell my dress. I passed along the brooch in my bouquet to 7 other brides since my wedding with a diary where they will each write their experiences on their wedding day. I also wanted to pass on my dress, and know that I have helped someone else have her most glamorous wedding day!
