The ceremony took place on the beach under a simple bamboo canopy. The couple did a unity sand ceremony, and everyone laughed when the groom's sand got stuck in the vase.
At the end of the ceremony as the bride and groom kissed, we had the staff pop several bottles of champagne to really set the tone for the festive atmosphere (they were so excited, I had to keep whispering "not yet!"). Then on to the cocktail hour which took place on the pier, while the bridal party took photos.
Guest were invited to the dinner reception on the terrace. The bride wanted a white linen so that the bright flowers would really stand out. We brought in glass lanterns with candles to add to the ambiance.
