Magen’s Bay Rate Increase

Magen’s Bay Brides! The Magen’s Bay Authority is raising the wedding fee for 2019 from $100 to $150. Every wedding scheduled for 2019 will be affected, even if you scheduled your wedding at the $100 rate, they will be charging the $150 (so no one is “grandfathered” in so to speak). You can email me to discuss changing locations if you like. If you have a package that includes the site fee, an additional $50 will be added to your invoice.

In case you’re wondering, the fee is collected by the parks authority to help maintain the beach…trash removal, landscaping, lifeguards, etc. It helps to keep our beaches safe & beautiful

Bridal Party Gift Idea

Couples are always looking for a bridal party gift that is outside of the box. We all know that everyone loves their tumblers these days and I am in love with these Caribbean Surf Shop tumblers by Corkcicle. A recent bride gave these to everyone in her bridal party (and me too!

Congrats Ashley & Mark!

USVI Post-Irma & Maria Updates.

I have had a lot of couples ask me how the recovery process was going in St. Thomas & St. John. As an engaged couple starts to look around for their destination wedding location, I can understand how the Virgin Islands may be discouraging at first, when you see how many of our resorts areContinue Reading
