Brittany and Marcus were planning to get married on Sept. 30 at Beaches Resort—until hurricanes Irma and Maria came through the islands, forcing them to come up with an alternative solution to their Turks & Caicos wedding as the resort decided to close their property until December.
It’s a risk that comes with having your wedding in the Caribbean during hurricane season, which runs from June 1 to Nov. 30—but luckily, this story has a happy ending. Brittany and Marcus were determined to get married in the Turks & Caicos, no matter what it took. And after weighing a few other options (Beaches tried to relocate the wedding to their property in the Bahamas until news of Hurricane Maria came), the couple learned that Seven Stars Resort was open and ready to host their wedding.
Brittany and Marcus confirmed with Seven Stars on a Tuesday, and boarded a flight for Providenciales the following morning. They said “I do” on Grace Bay Beach on Saturday, Sept. 30—their original wedding date, despite two hurricanes that threatened to end their plans altogether. And what’s even better? Their wedding marked the first destination wedding in the Turks & Caicos after Irma and Maria!
We’re so excited that The New York Times has featured Brittany and Marcus’s story in a recent article on couples who recently had to change their wedding plans as a result of natural disasters—and you’ll find a quote directly from us, too! You can read the couple’s story here, under the subtitle “Leaving Minnesota for White Sands.”
