It might be just a dream. Or, at least a gauzy memory inspired by a chick flick. I have one foot out of the diaphanous mosquito netting that wraps my Balinese style bed, before I recognize that this is reality.
I awaken at a villa that overlooks the azure Caribbean Sea on a beach with bridal-bouquet white sand. That swirl of white crescent and bit of blue out my window couldn’t be more fitting. That’s because I’ve come here to attend a wedding—and the scene set by the landscape is nature’s altar.
At Como’s Parrot Cay, a private island retreat in the Turks & Caicos my childhood friend will tie the knot. It was her brilliant idea to buy out all 1,000 intimate acres of this tony resort, to make the entire isle her own for this fete of a lifetime. Although this will be her day, my stay at this gorgeous resort to celebrate her big moment, seems more like her wedding gift to me.
