Allison Vain and Christopher Tillotson were introduced by a mutual friend in the spring of 2014, and fell in love during their first vacation as a couple that summer in Bermuda. Christopher proposed while the couple was at Allison’s parents’ home over the Christmas holidays in 2017. When wedding planning began, the couple felt it only made sense to return to beautiful Bermuda, where it all began. Planning was intimidating at first, but with the help of The Traveling Bride’s Giuliana Gonsalves, Allison and Christopher’s dream wedding came to life.
What We Love
The morning of the wedding began with a competitive round of golf at Tucker’s Point followed by lunch at the Bermudian clubhouse before Allison, her mother, and her bridal party soaked up some sun and enjoyed the stunning views at The Loren’s pool. Later, Blueprint Hair Studio and Makeup by Afroditi prettied up the wedding party.
Demco florist Marguerite Clark expertly captured Christopher and Allison’s vision while enhancing the spectacular ocean views at The Loren’s oceanfront disk.
Working Title’s energetic performance kept guests on their feet during the intimate dinner reception at the Hamilton Princess’s Trudeau Ballroom.
The bridal bouquet was so beautiful, it brought tears to Allison’s eyes.
The couple still returns to Gavin Howarth’s photographs to relive the entire experience as captured with his skilled eye.
In Their Own Words
“After this experience, the best wedding advice we can offer is to find a team that is truly passionate about what they do,” says Allison. “Each and every one of our vendors clearly shared a love for this island and for the work that they did. The comfort we found knowing that they were equally invested in bringing our dream wedding to life made it possible for us to enjoy and be present in every single minute of the day. We wouldn’t change a thing!”
