Turks & Caicos - Destination Wedding

Travel Photo by IgoUgo member

Michael and I wanted to have our wedding virtually stress free, far away, and on a beautiful beach with turquoise water (We've been spoiled by Destin, Florida's beaches). We kept running across wonderful reviews online about the Turks & Caicos Islands, which mostly claimed that it was a Best Kept Secret and that it wouldn't remain that way much longer...It was a perfect choice for a weddingmoon (destination wedding) or just a relaxing vacation.

Our wedding coordinator, Beatrix Neuhaus, made things absolutely beautiful and organized—gracefully. http://www.wherewhenhow.com/Weddings/JustMarried.html.

We stayed at Ocean Club East. http://www.ocean-club.com/. It has a wonderful poolside restaurant/bar (great food and drink) that has organized "Rum Punch Nights" and a friendly staff. OC East is near the end of the long island, so it feels more secluded. They provided free transportation into town, but we liked the walk and weren't in any hurry to get anywhere fast. These people are definitely on island time, and we adjusted after a couple of days. The people of Turks & Caicos were so friendly and kind to us while we were there. Especially, Jamo at Ocean Club Resort East, who made us feel so welcome, always, and our favorite girl on the island, Leona, at Calico Jacks whose smile was contagious.
