In April this year, Kate and David were married and celebrated with a Grand Cayman family wedding. I loved all the details and swag at this wedding. Simple white ceremony with gold coloured chairs. Flowers on each dinner table in different sized vases in the colour theme of mint, blush pink, and gold.
The couple choreographed a slow dance, and then released Chinese lanterns in honour of David’s mum who passed away. This was so beautiful. A signature cocktail, named after their puppy Theo was served to the guests. The couple also did a unity ceremony by mixing two different wines together and taking a drink.
I love how this couple met… “At a bar. I told my girl friend I’d help wingman her to get a guy, and I asked her who she wanted me to hit on. She responded, “the guys in the suits”. I went over and hit on them for her, but ended up meeting David instead.” Then David popped the question on top of a fortress palace in Malaga, Spain while on their first cruise.
David and Kate chose the Cayman Islands for their wedding after coming down for a company event and falling in love with the island. While eating dinner at Grand Old House, they knew they wanted to get married at that very spot.
I asked Kate to tell me about her dress… “The dress is called “Presley”. It’s a soft chiffon a-line with a flourishing lace and vintage inspired embellished bodice. I found it in Chicago, specifically in the Old Town neighbourhood at Winnie Couture. I went with my maid of honour, and it was the first dress I tried on at that store. I knew it was just the one when I tried it on, it had everything in a dress I was looking for. My mom and aunt Sue had already scheduled a trip up to try wedding dresses on Mother’s Day weekend, so I took them around town showing them other dresses, made this store my last appointment, and purchased my dress on Mother’s Day with them”
