Tropical DMC planned this gorgeous May of 2014 wedding in at the Gansevoort resort.  TC Millwork built the driftwood chuppah which Environmental Arts did a beautiful job decorating with climbing ivy and pale pink and white bougainvillea.

On August 3rd Tropical DMC contracted us for our driftwood tree arch for a wedding ceremony at the Gansevoort Turks and Caicos.  Deep purple is not a palette we see that often, Adriana and Philip you pulled it off beautifully!  See the rest of this gorgeous glam wedding on Brilliants blog.

Beach Tree Wedding Arch

On February 2nd TC Millwork was contracted to set this beautiful beach tree arch for Sandra and Jon’s wedding.  This is a stylish and affordable option for couples that desire an organic, beachy look, more unique than your typical beach ceremony set-up.  It can be set as a two post, or a four post, and decorated with small conch shells (as shown here), flowers, vines, ribbon, lanterns, or whatever you wish!  This is a picture perfect place to use your imagination!  Please contact me for pricing.  To see more of Sandra and Jons gorgeous day, please see brilliant’s blog.

A divine gown.

Special island touches.

A lush and serene location.

And, of course, the Tropical DMC team who weaved all their well laid plans together.  From the beautiful breezy arch,

Handpainted Signage

I hit the ground running back in Turks and Caicos with a large corporate event planned by Tropical DMC for a fantastic repeat client.  This year this group went even bigger and better with four picture perfect evenings for their corporate client guests.  I custom made a few hand painted decor and signage items for the “Fast Eddie’s Tiki Bar” night hled at a local venue in Blue Hills.  The beach sign above included the distance from Turks and Caicos to several of the guests home cities.  This is a great idea for weddings and events to bring a real Caribbean look to any given beach.

A couple of dark wood masks were hand painted to go along with the bright and tropical colored surroundings.

And finally an 8′ x 5′ large mural, custom designed with the group’s own logo, was created as a photo back drop and focal point for the event.  
The following evening was hosted at The Estates, an incredibly chic and contemporary look was designed by Teresa Brunner using black, white, red, and damask decor and linens.  She contracted TC Millwork to make these shadowbox table numbers for this event.  These work very well for an outdoor function as they hold enough weight to resist wind and are large enough so guests can clearly read them even in dim ambiance lighting.
The corporate groups final night was certainly a soiree to behold; a superb job to all who made this  Gansevoort event such as smashing success.  To any who would doubt what an event team can accomplish on a small Caribbean island, feast your eyes on these beautiful images by Paradise Photography

Teresa utilized our collection of hand painted  fan corals for the table centerpieces, a nice touch for a beautifully executed ocean theme.  Amazing how much impact a fully draped tent has, transforming any decor from lovely to  gasp aloud stunning.

Huge thanks to Tropical Destination Management Co. for their continued loyal patronage, it is always a pleasure and honor to work with such a great company.
