Georgina & Tarvas, Southern Love with an Island Twist

Georgina & Tarvas, Southern Love with an Island Twist 3

A southern bride has  a southern style wedding no matter where she gets married. Georgina and Tarvas’ wedding proves this statement oh so true. This SC bred bride had her wedding in the Grand Cayman Islands to celebrate her and husband’s southern romance. From the beautiful lace in her dress to the warm hospitality in the pictures, we can see all sorts of southern elements of this island wedding. Take out some time from your day to celebrate the love of this couple and pretend like you are on an island getaway. We wish the best for Georgina and Tarva and are so excited for what their future holds!

XOXO
