We had the best time in the Bahamas this past weekend celebrating our friends Jane and Scottie at their b-e-a-utiful wedding! I took roughly 68,239 pictures so I thought I’d share a little recap here. I’m the kind of person who likes to arrive at the airport three hours early and camp out with an iced coffee and a stack of magazines.
Will and I flew into Nassau and took a taxi to Lyford Cay to check into a little cottage with our friends Mike and Natalie. SO. CUTE. Then we booked it to the beach immediately (surprise, surprise). I’ve never seen such beautiful clear water in my life! The first night Will read a hilarious poem for Jane and Scottie and had everyone at the rehearsal dinner in stitches. #proudgirlfriend
The Lyford Cay Club was even more beautiful than I had imagined. Palm trees, pineapples, pink umbrellas… There was seriously a new Instagram-worthy moment around every corner!
The interior of the club was just beyond gorgeous. They definitely aren’t afraid of color in the Bahamas — I think we could all learn a thing or two. Bright palm leaf prints with turquoise pillows and coral sofas with chocolate walls (not to mention the PINK exteriors)… It’s going to make it very tough to appreciate New York’s gray skyscrapers again!
I think I could eat breakfast here every day for, oh, the rest of my life. 😉
On Saturday, we hung out on the beach for a few hours (slathered in SPF 70!) before it got too hot and everyone went off in search of ice cream. I’d like to make room in my apartment for a casual little yellow and white striped cabana. Thoughts?!
The setting for the wedding was really breathtaking. Jane did such a great job incorporating the colors of the club into the decor and her bridesmaids’ dresses!
Yay Jane and Scottie!!! Are they not the cutest couple?!
It was such a special weekend with great friends, great food, and an insanely beautiful backdrop for it all. Oh and bonus alert! I got to cross seeing a new country off my 101 in 1001 list. I hope we’ll be back again one day soon!
