Paradise Island, Bahamas
Naomi Lowde and Jason Priestley were married on May 14, 2005 at the One & Only Ocean Club on Paradise Island in the Bahamas.
The 1940s-themed wedding took place in the Versailles Garden in front of 120 guests, including Tori Spelling, Jennie Garth, Tiffani Thiessen and Ian Ziering.
Naomi walked down an orchid-lined aisle in a strapless $8,500 beaded and crystal dress by St. Pucchi and wearing a Neil Lane tiara. The Royal Bahamian Police Force played their trumpets as she made her entrance.
Jason wore a white silk Hugo Boss suit with a white striped tie.
Guests watched the couple exchange vows while perched on brown Chiavari chairs.
At the conclusion, a gospel choir serenaded the bride and groom with “Oh Happy Day.”
A plantation-style reception was held following the ceremony. Each round table had centerpieces of orchids, jasmine, avocado and kiwi by Floral Arts.
The couple shared their first dance to “Dance Me to the End Of Love” by Leonard Cohen.
Dinner included Bahamain lobster tail, king prawns, conch salad and corn on the cob. For dessert, Todd Johnson of Atlantis Resort, created a three-tier square iced chocolate wedding cake decorated with pink cymbidium orchids.
Jason’s close friends, The Barenaked Ladies, got guests on the dance floor with an upbeat set and playful cover of “Close to You” by the Carpenters.
At the end of the evening, a 10-minute fireworks display was presented as a surprise to the bride.
As guests departed, they each took home a favor of Fortnum and Mason tea, in honor of Naomi’s British heritage.
