Cindy Crawford and Rande Gerber: The Bahamas
Cindy Crawford and Rande Gerber’s love story began with a destination wedding that was the epitome of simplicity and charm.

Their nuptials took place at the idyllic Ocean Club in Nassau, Bahamas, where they exchanged vows against the stunning backdrop of white sand and crystal-clear waters.
