Honeymoon Recap - Part 1


Ryan and I knew early on in the wedding planning process that we wanted to go away on our honeymoon right away. In fact, on a past Wedding Wednesday post I mentioned where we would be going.

To say that we were excited to get away would be an understatement. We were looking forward to some uninterrupted time together as husband and wife.

The Sunday morning after the wedding was a sleepy one! We were kind of exhausted from the night before. So, we ordered pizza into our room for lunch and then slept most of the afternoon away!


That evening we did decide to go out for supper to The Keg that was just down the road from our hotel! We had an amazing meal! It is one of our favorite restaurants!


REALLY early Monday morning we were off to the Bahamas! Landing in this beautiful city early in the afternoon! We were picked up (and brought back) to the airport in this sweet set of wheels! We kind of felt like a big deal! :-)


A Rolls Royce!

We were greeted at the reception desk and told some bad news. Our room wasn’t ready yet. To make it up to us they asked if we wanted to be upgraded to their nicest room, the oceanview penthouse suite! Oh, ok…if we have too! (WOO HOO!)

That evening our butler (ya, we had our own butler all week, sweet!) booked us to have dinner at Gordon’s which is on the pier. We dressed up and headed off.

Honeymoon 008

We had an amazing meal! Steak, seafood and all the fixings.


Our first full morning at the resort was great! We were greeted at breakfast with mimosa’s! Great way to start the day!


We then laid by the pool, which ended up being our most favorite spot.


I also started a new book! Had to read it after all the hype!


That evening we headed to The Crystal Room, given it’s name from the beautiful chandelier that hangs in the centre.


We again enjoyed a delicious and fancy meal!


After supper we enjoyed a sunset walk on the beach! I know, I know…Super sappy! But we were honeymooners after all!


Wednesday morning was an exciting day! We were headed to the private island and spending the day there!

Honeymoon 021

Our butler had arranged for us to have a private cabana on the beach so that we were able to get out of the sun if we wanted to! We relaxed, ate lunch and even napped in this little cabana.

Honeymoon 011

After lunch, we arranged to have a couples massage on the beach of the private island. It was heavenly!

That evening we cleaned up and headed to Kimono’s for supper. It is a Japanese venue where the chef cooks your meal right before your eyes!


That evening we curled up on one of the couches by the fire pit with a couple of night caps. They had a jazz player performing near the fire pit as well so it was relaxing and entertaining!


The first few days of our honeymoon we were spoiled! Between getting greeted everywhere with a “Mr. & Mrs.” and just relaxing, we rejuvenated after a busy time leading up the wedding. We were feeling very refreshed and looking for some adventures to follow on the coming days.

Happy Friday!
