We were recently married on St. Thomas at Lindquist Beach. Island Bliss Weddings was our on island planner. Two words...WOW...AWESOME
Our wedding day was stress-free. Janelle took care of everything. We had a 10:30am ceremony at Lindquist beach. Stuart, Janelle's husband and our officiant, picked us up at the dock at 9:30am. We went to the court house to sign papers, took about 10 minutes, then off to the beach. We had our 6 adult children cruising with us, Janelle arranged for them to be picked up at 10am at the dock and taken directly to the beach. My mother was staying on island at Pt. Pleasant Resort, they got a cab from there to the beach.
The ceremony- Stuart made this so personal. I was amazed. He and Mike, my now husband, talked for about 15 minutes before the ceremony while I waited in the car. Stuart made it sound like he'd known us for quite some time. Just awesome. Lasted about 15 or 20 minutes. We had a steel drum player who was wonderful. He played for the entire hour we were at the beach. Too cool.
Photography- We used Toes in the Sand Photography. Mike was wonderful. He took alot of photos. We got a 1 hour package.
Flowers- WOW I chose purple and green for colors. The florist chose the flowers from what she had available. I had my bouquet, which was included in my package, 2 bridesmaid bouquets, 3 extra boutonniere's, and 3 wrist coursages. Flowers for everyone.
Cake- My mother and I LOVE cake. I was alittle worried about how it would taste. It was the best wedding cake I have ever had. We chose the Chocolate raspberry overload. I believe it came from V.I. desserts. Moist cake and the frosting was not too sweet. I am now wondering if they will ship to the US. It was that good.
After the ceremony we went to Pt. Pleasant resort for lunch and cake. There is a small restaurant there called Jack's Bight. It is right over the water. We were the only people there. This was not reserved ahead of time. It is a very casual open air bar with some tables. The food was very good. Not sure what wines are available. Plenty of rum drinks. We were there from about 12pm to 3pm. Janelle arranged all transportation. As I said, stress-free.
WOW and Awesome are still the two words for my wedding day.
Life is good,
Erin and Mike
