a very special guest post ~ carleth & adrian

carleth and adrian are close friends, and, the cutest couple. as i’ve mentioned before (here), and luckily for me, they got married here in provo. i was flattered to know they had never been in turks and caicos and fell in love with the island through myseastory! i asked carleth to share a few thoughts on their special wedding weekend on island…

My dream was to get married on the most beautiful beach in the world, and it became true on May 26th.

It was a risk to organize a wedding at a place we had never been to, and most of our guests had never even heard of, but like someone once told me before: “with Turks & Caicos, you can never go wrong”. And so we did. We mobilized over 80 people from different corners of the planet, with the promise of paradise.

Grace Bay Beach exceeded our expectations and, on Memorial Day weekend, its turquoise waters created memories that will forever bond our eclectic and multicultural group.

It was a hot afternoon on May 26th, but nobody cared. Sweating on the dance floor of Bay Bistro was the perfect excuse for our friends to cool off in the water under the bright moon.

It was the happiest weekend of our lives, not only because we sealed our love for each other, but because of the wonderful activities in the island: the boat ride, the conch fishing, the snorkeling, the parasailing, the rum punch and the tasty fish tacos at Somewhere Café, all of which printed huge smiles on the faces of our loved ones.

One of our friends asked us if we will return to Provo one day, and we answered yes. “Maybe for our first anniversary” and he replied: “can we all tag along again??”

last weekend he headed to the conch festival, since it is our first year in provo, we were excited to see what it was about!

we went straight to the conch tasting competition, sampling dishes prepared by the 25 local participating restaurants – our favourite? parallel 23 and bay bistro, loved the flavours, presentation and friendlyness!

did you know that conch is the main export product in turks and caicos?

in our way out we bought some coconuts from these friendly kids!

it truly is one of the events of the year in provo, not to be missed!
