An inside look at Veronika's magical wedding wearing Reem Acra.



Date of wedding: April 20, 2018

Location: David Copperfield’s private island nestled in the Exuma chain. The island is in the southern Bahamas, about 85 miles southeast of Nassau.

Number of guests: 28

Most memorable part of the day:
The most memorable part of the day was arriving to the sandbar. The amount of joy and love I felt was infinite. To see my handsome husband to be, standing at the end of the aisle waiting for me, was electric. I was surrounded by my beloved friends and family who have been with me through all the different phases of my life. It was in that moment that I felt like the luckiest girl in the world to be marrying my true love, surrounded by such incredible people.



What was your entrance?
It was truly spectacular! We chose to have our ceremony on the sandbar, in the middle of the ocean a couple of hours before sunset. The sandbar surfaces offshore for a mere four hour window. Our guests and my husband headed over a little after 4PM and I followed closer to 5PM with my sister in law and my niece, our flower girl.
The boat ride to the sandbar was filled with excitement, happiness, and nerves. Upon arrival, the boat pulled in as far as it could, and luckily for me, the staff had placed stools as stepping stones. It was like a game of leap frog!



What was the mood or theme you were inspired by for your dress?
I wanted my dress to be romantic, feminine, flirty, yet still classic. It was important for me to be able to look back my wedding pictures 10 or 20 years from now, and be just as in love, if not more with my dress.
What details did you share with Reem about how you wanted to look, and feel in your dress?
I wanted to stay true to who I am and what I love. I always pictured getting married in a castle, so when my husband and I decided on Musha Cay, I knew I wanted to bring as much glam and sophistication to my dress as possible, while still considering the simplicity and beauty of the island. I really wanted something regal and feminine while maintaining a light, airy feel. I am a complete girly girl so some sparkle was necessary.
What was your hair and makeup inspiration?
I wanted a very soft and natural look that was still different from my everyday look. We placed some emphasis on my eyes to really make them pop and completed the look with a pretty nude/pink lip.  I always knew I wanted my hair down in long beachy waves, which only seemed fitting for a beach wedding.



What was your something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue?
Something old: This was quite an honor, for my something old, Reem lent me a beautiful tiara of hers. It definitely completed my look and made me feel like a true princess.
Something new: My something new was my veil that Reem custom made. Reem hand cut and placed matching appliques and lace all over the veil, it was truly remarkable.
Something borrowed: My something borrowed was a stunning tennis bracelet from my dear friend Anna.
Something blue: At the base of my cascading white orchid bouquet, we had the florist nestle in my 4 year old niece’s blue flower hair clip. Jazmin and I have a very special bond, I love her as if she were my own, so to carry a piece of her with me down the aisle was heart warming.
