High-school sweethearts Lindsay and Jonny wanted something different from the typical forma New Jersey wedding. “Grand Cayman our relationship — easy, breezy” says the bride. For their stay, the couple chose the Westin Casuarina Resort & Spa, on Cayman’s Seven Mile Beach.
In lieu of a rehearsal dinner, Lindsay and Jonny threw a welcome bash for all 75 guests at the nearby Cracked Conch Restaurant. ” We munched on Caribbean eats, relaxed and watched the sun go down over the ironshore,” remembers Lindsay. A Caribbean theme infused the big day and was carried throughout with a citrus color scheme and a turtle-shaped monogram, not to mention Lindsay’s mermaid-style gown.
For the main event, they tied the knot shoreside at the Westin, Lindsay carrying a sunset-hued calla lilies as she walked to meet Jonny under a bamboo altar. For their oceanfront reception at the Wharf restaurant, a steel drummer performed while guests feasted on conch fritters, homemade lobster bisque and orange baked grouper, with a turtle-shaped sponge cake for dessert. Then guests danced to a live band and watched tarpon feeding right at the water’s surface. “The music, ambiance and beach weather were fantastic,” Lindsay gushes. “We kept the party rockin’ all night!”
