Wedding Wish-List Wednesday: Atlantis Paradise Island

One of the great things about being in Florida is its proximity to the classic romantic getaway -- The Bahamas!

Today's wish-list venue is the elegant beach resort, Atlantis Paradise Island.  Just imagine having your wedding with the crystal-clear, strikingly blue waters of the Bahamas as a backdrop.  Soft white sands and a lush tropical environment offer the perfect mixture for a classic beach wedding.

Atlantis has no shortage of fabulous beach locations to host your wedding.  In fact, most of their options are outdoor options, with only a few indoor venues -- including three ballrooms.

Their ballrooms -- the Imperial Ballroom, the Grand Ballroom, and the Crown Ballroom -- are all elegant, customizable spaces which can easily be transformed to your personal wedding vision.

But truly, why settle for an indoor space at all, when there are over 20 options for an ideal beach celebration?  After all, isn't it insulting to the Bahamas NOT to have a beach wedding?

So that is what Atlantis focuses on.  We can't waste a perfectly good beach, now, can we?

There is the beautiful West Beach, with its "breathtaking views of the Bahamian waters."

For smaller, more intimate celebrations, they have their beautiful Paradise Beach location.  "Tucked away just steps from the Reef and Cascades Pool, you'll find Paradise Beach.  Our most secluded beach location is picture perfect for an intimate sunset ceremony."  I do love a good sunset wedding.

My personal favorite option is the fabulous Cove Beach.   "Beyond the hustle and bustle of the resort lies Cove Beach.  Exchange your vows on soft white sands with the crystal blue waters of the Caribbean as your backdrop."  Sounds like the ultimate in romance to me.

If you don't want to get married directly on the beach itself, you can try other outdoor options offering the view without the actual sand.  You can try the Water's Edge, a more contemporary setting with a "charming seaside chapel," pavilion, and ocean-view deck looking out over palm trees and those famous waters.

There's the Baths Colonnade, a poolside venue with grand columns that comes complete with personalized uplighting, perfect for an evening reception.

And speaking of the pool, you can try Ripples.  "An enticing pool side experience perfect for large group dinners or reception style event. Dine al-fresco amongst beautiful Mayan style architecture and trickling waterfalls."

There is the Dig Deck, with its views of Paradise Lagoon.  Above that is the Royal Overlook.

Or there is the Ocean Overlook.   "Perched just above the powder white sands and crystal blue waters, Ocean Overlook provides a picturesque beach setting under a charming Gazebo."

And for those who enjoy something a little more elaborate and luxurious, there is the Royal Deck.

Atlantis Paradise Island really has everything you could possibly need for a grand beach destination wedding.  All beach weddings should be this amazing.

  1. Stunning wedding locations! The views of strikingly blue waters of the Bahamas as a backdrop are just mesmerizing. Well, I want a big beachside wedding but destination ceremony would be out of my budget so would like to book domestic seaside Los Angeles wedding venues for our day.
