The sunny shores and balmy breezes of the Bahamas Islands draw many couples to the country for destination weddings. However, choosing the general location is only the first step in finding the perfect setting for your nuptials. Choosing the right venue could take your ceremony from memorable to downright magical.
There are dozens of wedding venues around our Nassau and Paradise Island homes for sale and many more sprinkled around the out islands like the Exumas and the Abacos. Here are a few venues we've found most captivating while living in The Bahamas.
