Real Weddings: Olympia Torlonia Shields & Brooks Osborn Bishop


The skies cleared, and Olympia and Brooks were married on Pink Sands Beach in Harbour Island in the Bahamas on April 22, 2017. The bride walked barefoot down the aisle with her mother and carried a bouquet of calla lilies; her dress was designed by Peter Langner. She also wore a pair of aquamarine earrings that belonged to Brooks’ mother. The groom, matron of honor, and the best man all donned outfits by Island Company. The most memorable part of the ceremony: Olympia prematurely kissed Brooks because she thought the minister had forgotten about the tradition. After the ceremony, 85 guests enjoyed a reception at Pink Sands Resort and looked on as the bride and groom danced to “True Companion” by Marc Cohn.
