Walking Down The Isle Just Married In The TCI
Luise Bayley

Sheena Shipley & Chad Meyer



Wedding planning: Luise Bayley, NILA Destinations | Photography by: Ileana, Attimi Photography

Chad, an entrepeneur and home inspector, and Sheena, a nursing student, both moved to Denver years before meeting each other. Chad came from Nebraska in 2008 and Sheena moved from Louisiana in 2005. One Saturday night in 2011, Sheena and her girlfriends were out downtown and ran into Chad and his friends. The guys were dressed nicely because they had just finished volunteering at an art show. As soon as Chad and Sheena began talking, there was an instant connection. After several fun dates, they were inseparable. Chad proposed to Sheena in 2015 at Forscythe Canyon in Colorado and a year later, they got married in the most beautiful location in the world – the Turks and Caicos Islands.

Turks and Caicos was an easy decision for the couple’s wedding and honeymoon: the gorgeous sunsets, clear, turquoise ocean, and white, silky sand provided a perfect romantic backdrop.

Over 50 guests flew in from all over and stayed at the Sands in Grace Bay, while immediate family stayed at the gorgeous Mandalay Villa in Long Bay.

On the eve of the wedding, guests enjoyed a casual beach dinner in front of Bay Bistro. The wedding and fun-filled reception took place on Long Bay beach at Villa Mandalay.

Sheena and Chad would like to thank their wedding planner Luise, Ileana of Attimi photography for the incredible images of their special day, Preston for videography, Kissing Fish catering, their parents and friends, and of course, the wonderful chef Josh Carlton and all of the staff at Villa Mandalay.

We wish Sheena and Chad a long and happy life together, and hope to see them and their wonderful families here in TCI again soon.
