Hurricane Tomas

Hurricane Tomas canceled a magazine feature photo shoot I was to be producing with Turks and Caicos Productions.  I would have had the opportunity to work with David Gubert, a photographer who has an incredible Caribbean portfolio and a true talent for capturing the regions raw beauty.  Regrettably the crew moved their shoot out of the path of Tomas and somewhere to Mexico.  Instead, I was welcomed aboard an active PLAN B for a Tropical DMC wedding.  So what happens when you find out there is a hurricane predicted for your wedding day?  You make the best of it!  We found a way to still get a beautiful, expansive view of the ocean as a ceremony backdrop.

We made certain all guests had a comfortable seat out of the elements where the ladies could keep their wedding appropriate hair, make-up, and wedding attire intact, and the gentleman had easy access to the bar! 

  The bride and groom were still able to walk down a petal filled aisle and be announced under the ceremony arch they envisioned, quite romantic wouldn’t you say?

When you can’t bring the wedding to the beach, bring a bit of the beach to the wedding!
And the reception . . . . . even a paper lantern filled tent would have had a hard time competing with this beautifully executed Plan B!  Great job to Environmental Arts, Diane Guess and her fabulous cake, and of course the whole Gansevoort and Tropical DMC teams.  Best wishes to our happy couple, and the other couples, including island residents Molly and Dodge, who become husband and wife on this truly unique and memorable November 6th, 2010.
