Trae is from Nassau, Bahamas, born/bred/raised. But the wedding was in St Louis:
Enter the “island chic” theme. Pretty different and unique when taking place in the Midwest, with no big beautiful bodies of water to speak of. The theme was incorporated by the use of colors (aqua for the color of the sea, red for coral, and white for the sand) , subtle motifs (coral, starfish), and food (tropical flair).
The Bahamian “under the sea” concept in reality.
“ME n U”. Aren’t we clever?
Check out this surprise groom’s cake and the “Ring Bear” who posed for it.
And the Red Carpet style photo booth got a lot of love!
