The Gansevoort is one of the newest resorts in the Turks and Caicos Islands, and it's popularity is rapidly spreading. For starters it boasts one the most wonderfully wide and uncrowded beaches on Providenciales; a perfect location for a large beach wedding. Planner Teresa Brunner of Tropical Destination Management Company is a pro at coordinating hotel accommodations specific to a the guest list needs. Environmental Arts did a stunning job for this lovely couple. They created a floral design for the ceremony of Hawaiian lei inspired curtains, a reference to the couples love of Maui. TC Millwork took care of a custom finish on the bamboo canopy, as well as a height modification to accommodate the 6'6" groom, and hand painted beach and tickle trunk signs in the same font as the couples brilliant programs which doubled as fans. The modern architecture of the Gansevoort is complemented by simple and sleek surrounds true to the name New York made famous, creating it's stand apart signature. The pool is clearly the stylish center of the property, giving the infamous white sand beach just steps away some serious competition for guests attention. It made for a picturesque cocktail hour.
Environmental Arts created sophisticated florals for the reception; cascades of white orchids in tall silver vases for the interior dining area, willow branches with white cala lilies, and low white rose and blue hydrangea silver cupped arrangements adorned with the brides handmade message flags.
The fragrant floral adorned cake was created by Diane Guess. Kissing porcelain bride and groom figurines and cake serving cutlery were family heirlooms.
Brilliant set up a self-service photo booth with a tickle trunk of pirate props Tropical DMC sourced. Loads of laughs could be heard from this area for the entire evening, needless to say it was a huge hit! Teresa and I even took five minutes to get in on the fun.
