Wedding: John & Marie at The Reefs in Bermuda

When you think of Bermuda, you may think of the natural colors found on the island: the blue and aqua ocean waters, the pink sand, and the green landscape.  Marie and John had beautiful sunny weather on their wedding at The Reefs in Southampton, Bermuda, which allowed for the island's colors to shine even more so! With the shimmering water behind the bride and groom, the two exchanged their vows, the rings, and sealed it with a kiss!

Marie & John have vacationed at The Reefs several times before getting married there.  While I was taking their group photos, Marie mentioned to me that they felt like they were at home at The Reefs!  After group photos, the couple was joined by their closest family and friends for cocktails on Caso's Point. The signature drink of the evening was affectionately named "Lady's Swizzle", named after Marie and John's loving dog back home and naturally, the national beverage of Bermuda!

While the guests enjoyed the cocktail hour, Marie, John, and I snuck off to shoot their bridal portraits around The Reefs' property.  After which, everyone gathered for dinner at Coconuts. The reception started off with John toasting his lovely new bride and thanking everyone for joining them in Bermuda. 

What made this wedding unique was the stunning display of floral decor and bouquets arranged by Flowers by GIMI!  The wedding day went smoothly; everything was carefully orchestrated by their wedding planner, Kathleen of Bermuda Event Solutions.  A few days after their wedding, John and Marie were kind enough to send all of the vendors a thank-you note, which was greatly appreciated.  So - special thanks to Marie and John for being such amazing clients!  Cheers to you both; to many years of happiness together!
