Cheri & Curt
For these doctors, a paradise wedding in the Cayman Islands was the perfect medicine.

Ceremony & Reception: Grand Old House, Cayman Islands
Event Planner: Celebrations LTD
Cheri and Curt dreamed of gathering their favourite people for a sophisticated, relaxed, and intimate destination wedding. Grand Cayman offered everything they imagined, including convenient flights for their 85 guests to join in the celebration.
The week before the wedding was filled with adventure and delectable cuisine: a fishing trip for the groomsmen, snorkeling and Sting Ray City boat trip with lunch for the bridesmaids.
At the ceremony, each guest received a straw fan with a note attached from the bride and groom: "Good friends and a gentle breeze are blessings that make our hearts sing...Cheri & Curt."
Cheri was breathtaking in her romantic and breezy Ristarose dress, while Curt's pale tan suit, linen shirt, and coral tie added to "the beachy chic vibe."
Carrying orange calla lilies and orchids, extra orchids were strung on gold thread cascading down from the bouquet. Lime cymbidium orchids and roses, and bright colour gerbera daisies, were placed in clear gel that looked like crushed ice. A tropical leaf was placed beneath each place setting and peeked out from under the gold-rimmed glass charger plates set atop stunning custom made table linens.
Cheri’s love of chocolate was evident in her wedding cake, also covered with lime green orchids, while Curt’s groom’s cake was a key lime pie. "Usually the groom's cake is chocolate, but I took that flavour for myself," Cheri says.
