best islands bahamas wedding


The Bahamas is a vastly popular coral-based chain of 700 exotic islands surrounded by miles of the hypnotic shores of the Atlantic Ocean. Presently,¬†the islands are filled with world-renowned resorts. Heavenly beds, fine oceanfront dining, scuba diving, exotic marine life, and one very awesome wedding photographer ūüėČ call The Bahamas home. By and large, with so many opportunities for Bahamas wedding adventures, it is no wonder Bahamas wedding venues¬†have recently gained immense popularity.


I loved working with this fun couple in Freeport as they chose their favorite island for their wedding venue in The Bahamas. Liz & John were so awesome.

Other than ensuring your future spouse shows up to the wedding on time with bells on, nothing is more important than selecting the most beautiful wedding location you possibly can. Your wedding backdrop should be so breathtakingly gorgeous that your guests should vividly remember every detail 10 years from now. This is why selecting the right wedding photographer is so crucial. You and your family will always want to remember all the irreplaceable memories you will invariably create. Why go through the trouble of selecting the type of location that leaves you picking your guests’ jaws off the floor if you’re not going to have an equally awesome photographer to capture it all?

365 exotic islands and uninhabited cays filled with the untouched beauty of nature make up what we call the Exumas. In my opinion, this chain of islands is the pièce de ré·sis·tance of Bahamas wedding locations. They are the whipped cream on a perfectly brewed cup of coffee on a cool Sunday morning. Yum! In fact, Exuma is officially my absolute favorite place on the planet. This little slice of heaven certainly gets my endorsement as the BEST ISLAND for a WEDDING in The Bahamas. The Exumas are truly the epitome of the exotic island experience. You can find adventure at nearly every turn, and the island residents welcome you with open arms. Most importantly, the beauty of the beaches is second to none. Don’t be surprised if you find yourself on an Exuma island boat tour trying to count the many shades of blue in their beaches.

Ultimately, a well-planned and thought out Exuma wedding is an adventure, and will likely be etched as a permanent part of your family history.
