Our Junkanoo Wedding - Green Turtle Cay, Abaco, Bahamas - May 19, 2007

Ten years ago today, Tom and I were married at Gillam Bay on Green Turtle Cay. During the wedding planning, I mentioned that I’d like to somehow incorporate the Bahamian tradition of Junkanoo. Tom suggested that we have a group of Junkanoo performers escort my Dad and me up the aisle.

What an amazing experience to be led into married life by colourfully costumed dancers and traditional drums, whistles and cowbells!

Thanks to all of the performers who helped make our wedding so special, and thank you to Tom for a wonderful first decade.
