Grace and Trai Byers’ Wedding at Tranquility Cove Finally Revealed!

Weddings |

In 2016, Grace Gealy and Trai Byers, stars of the hit TV show Empire, quietly tied the knot here in Grand Cayman.

It was an intimate and private event, with only close friends and family in attendance. Although the fact that the couple had wed was widely reported in the international press, few details were available.

Now that the official wedding photos have been published in the inaugural edition of Cayman Vows magazine, however, we can let you in on a little secret: the happy couple celebrated their destination wedding at stunning Tranquility Cove, one of Luxury Cayman Villas’ properties.

Given that Grace Gealey was raised in Grand Cayman, it is no surprise that she chose to celebrate her wedding back home. But every year, many couples who have no ties to the Cayman Islands also choose to marry here. Indeed, the Cayman Islands regularly top the list of preferred destinations for those choosing a Caribbean beach wedding.

Why Cayman?

It’s not only about the stunning beaches as backdrops. Cayman is also safe, friendly and well developed. The accommodations, restaurants and services are all of a high standard, and it’s closer and easier to get to from North America than many other islands – it’s a one hour flight from Miami and under four hours from New York, Chicago or Toronto.

While many couples choose either to marry on beautiful Seven Mile Beach, or avail themselves of the wedding packages offered by some of the resorts on island, as Grace and Trai found, holding the ceremony in a private villa offers complete privacy and an event that is fully tailored to your taste and style.

Within our portfolio of luxury villas are numerous properties that make an idyllic setting for a destination wedding.

Many of our villas sleep 18 to 20 guests, potentially accommodating an entire wedding party. Several have private beaches where ceremonies can be held way from onlookers, and expansive decks where one can dance ‘til dawn without disturbing the neighbors.

On a practical note, the fully equipped chef’s kitchens mean caterers can prepare, serve and clear up a feast without intruding on the party, and when the big day draws to a close, one can simply fall into a supremely comfortable bed.

As well as providing the venue, Luxury Cayman Villas can also help to plan the perfect day. We know how complicated and stressful it can be to coordinate the event of a lifetime from thousands of miles away, so we do everything we can to assist with the organization.

Because Cayman is such a popular destination for weddings, a full range of associated services has grown up the fit the demand. We have world-class wedding planners, caterers, florists, photographers and entertainers right here in the islands, and because our team is also here, we can connect you with the best of them.

We regularly work with Celebrations, Cayman’s premier wedding planners and designers, and can recommend their services with complete confidence. With 25 years’ experience in the wedding industry Celebrations can handle everything from décor and design to lighting, sound and tuxedo rentals.  Rebecca Davidson Photography can help capture memories that will last forever and has carved out a cult following for her amazing wedding shoots.  And the list goes on and on!

Grand Cayman has all the resources to enable visitors to enjoy a dream destination wedding – and we will help to make it happen. Don’t hesitate to contact us to find out more about planning a wedding at one of our luxury villas.
