It was a truly international affair as 175 guests from 15 countries attended the wedding of Kellie McGee, 27, of George Town and Serginho Sandy, 33, of Port of Spain, Trinidad.
The couple joined hands in marriage at Rum Point on Jan. 2.
The wedding was officiated by Rev. Donovan Myers and planned by Juliette Heath of 5 Star Events Cayman.
Mr. Sandy, a university football coach prior to relocating to Cayman, and Ms. McGee, an accomplished pharmaceutical professional and 2015 winner of the Young Caymanian
Leadership Award, have been together for almost four years.
According to the couple’s wedding website, they share a love of Soca music and first met in 2012 at a carnival during Mr. Sandy’s first trip to the island. Two days later they met again at a birthday party at Rum Point, where photos reveal a smitten Mr. Sandy always close to his future bride’s side.
After a failed attempt at reconnecting later that night, the couple went on their first official date the next day, spending time at the turtle farm, drinking rum punch at Royal Palms, strolling on the beach and stopping at Singh’s Roti shop for goat roti and a beer.
After two years of long-distance dating, their paths converged in Cayman on Aug. 6, 2014. Mr. Sandy contrived to find himself alone on a “perfect evening” with his girlfriend on a quiet strip of Seven Mile Beach, with a cooler of wine on his arm and a ring in his pocket.
The rest, as they say, is history.
From the engagement on the sands of Seven Mile Beach, to the exchanging of vows on the sands of Rum Point, it was indeed a very Sandy wedding.
