Dating naked brides
On the big day, the bride got ready with her bridesmaids, including Nicole Williams, Nadine Leopold, Natalie Halcro, Jasmine Tookes, and Olivia Pierson.The women wore matching robes for a photo op and were joined by an additional mini guest: a dog dressed in a tux!
The couple—she's a model, he's an in-demand DJ—married this past Saturday on the island of Eleuthera in the Bahamas."We had the most wonderful conversation." From that moment on, the bride says, she was sure he was "the one." Greg was sure, too, and they dated for just eight months before he proposed. To propose, Greg planned a tropical Christmas vacation with Shanina and her mother at his family's place in the Bahamas.The day after the holiday, he organized an impromptu beach trip with Shanina and his cousin—or so she thought!"She took me to Harrods, to the private shopping suite," she says."After looking at so many amazing options, I decided to go with a stunning pair of Aquazzura shoes." The bride later changed into a second heel—this time by Jimmy Choo—when she slipped into a second dress for dancing.The stunning setting—the Other Side in Eleuthera—became their inspiration for the day, and the couple enlisted the help of Little Island Design to create a tropical-inspired wedding there.
"Our wedding reflected our personal style (simple and elegant) with the added touch of a bohemian vibe as well," explains the bride.
For her wedding gown, Shanina turned to the husband-and-wife design team at Ralph & Russo, who helped create her dream dress over the course of eight months.
"I wanted it to be simple, bohemian, and elegant," she says.
)The couple gave their guests a dress code of "neutral Pantone tones" to ensure that everyone blended in with the environment.
The youngest guests did not adhere to the uniform, but they looked especially adorable in their wedding attire.
The bride admits that she had a mix of emotions during the ceremony.
