After taking a brief relationship hiatus, Damita and Dylan took a "give-it-another-try" vacation in St. Barts and quickly rekindled their romance. They realized they wanted to wed, and the decision to marry on the island was an easy one. So after officially tying the knot in Hong Kong, the couple hosted a more relaxed celebration on St. Barts with close friends and family, full of sandy beaches, unique Caribbean culture, and crystal clear water.
The couple exchanged vows in this beachfront structure called a "paillote." "I wanted to use as much native greenery as possible," says Damita. To create a vibrant setting, rattan runners attached to the back of the paillote were enlivened with alamanda vines and yellow and coral faux blooms. For a finishing touch, Coccoloba leaves were scattered over the sand-covered floor.
The family enjoyed a loving moment during the nuptials. Dash surprised everyone by getting up during the ceremony, standing between his parents, and grabbing their hands as they said their I do's. "It was really sweet," says Damita, who wore a lace Delphine Manivet gown and a crown of vintage cotton flowers and fresh peonies.
