The gorgeous Victoria’s Secret model looked ethereal in her Ralph & Russo lace wedding gown at her mystical beach wedding in the Bahamas.
Her genes come some Saudi, Pakistan, Lithuania and Australia and this stunning Victoria’s Secret model Shanina Shaik married musician DJ Gregory “DJ Ruckus” Andrews in the island of Eleuthera in the Bahamas.
The couple first met at Coachella in 2015. Greg noticed Shanina sans her group and went to speak with her. The two made an instant connection, had a wonderful conversation and began dating. Eight moths later, Greg proposed on a tropical Christmas vacation, in the Bahamas.
The two decided to say ‘I do’ on the 28th of April, on the exact stretch of sand where they got engaged.
It was all island auras and bohemian vibes at this wedding. Kicking off the festivities with a rehearsal dinner, Shanina wore a long-sleeved white dress and wedges by Zimmermann. The groom wore a bright shirt to match the floral theme. The décor resonated with Harbour Island’s pristine landscape.
Designers Ralph and Russo had offered to make Shanina her bridal gown. She said ‘yes’ and on her wedding day, she emerged in a gorgeous, off-the-shoulder ensemble with delicate lace and sheer drapes near the hem. Her bridesmaids wore Zimmermann, each with their own flattering silhouette, in nude tones, tweaked to flatter each one’s skin tone.
The ceremony took place on the beach with the breathtaking landscape of the island as backdrop. The couple then celebrated by cutting a bourbon-flavored cake decorated with bundles of baby’s breath. After dinner, the bride changed into a custom Michael Costello dress teamed with a pair of Jimmy Choos to dance the night away. A Bahamian carnival group led the bride, groom, and their guests to the dance floor as the action-packed evening witnessed some surprise performances.
