The day after….

Yesterday was such a crazy fun busy day! Lots of couples enjoy the appeal of a unique wedding date such as yesterdays 11.12.13. I even had one couple chose to be married at 2:15 which in military hours means they were married on 11.12.13 at 14:15! I journaled my day with my iPhone.

To cut down on the craziness of the day, we picked up all our flowers from the florist the day before.

Ignore the half eaten tube of cookie dough in the drawer.

We started with a morning ceremony on Hawksnest Beach, St. John and unfortunately, I don’t have any photos of that to share yet. We were also up early at Villa Botanica to get it ready for a reception that night.

Our bride gave out yummy St. Thomas rum muffins!

She had them in little gift bags with the guests name & table number.

Our afternoon wedding also gave gift bags with sunny sunglasses and fun beer koozies.

On a busy wedding day, this is usually my lunch.

I don’t have any photos of our Magen’s Bay wedding 🙁 congrats to Terri & Rory though!

I loved this signature matte – they asked each guests to sign a heart.

We ended this day with this beautiful cake

I woke up at 5am and got to bed at 11pm. And Marla & Brian were right – it was the best day ever! We already have a booking for 12.13.14 but 3:16pm is still available! 🙂

We’re back!

We’re back, refreshed and ready for a busy November! And more importantly, happy to be back in warm weather. 🙂

Congrats to Anne & Jonathon!

Anne has such a great sense of style. I loved all the elements she put together. This gorgeous wedding was shot by Clary Pfeiffer at the Sand Dollar Estate. The adorable wedding cake was by Island Sweet Stuff. Adorable Pomeranian ring bearer? Brought from home. 🙂

Oriental Trading Co…who knew?!

I’m not new to Oriental Trading Co by any means. I’ve always used them for fun kids craft projects, inexpensive holiday decor and of course, birthday parties. The selection is vast and the prices are wonderful. My oldest daughter is turning 7 at the end of this month and we’re giving her a nautical themeContinue Reading

Congrats Alison & Grant – all the way from the UK!

I know I’ve said it many times before but I love hearing from past brides. Alison sent me this note and a few of her photos from her wedding (thanks Megan Biggs!). Apologies that this has taken some time to send but Grant and I would like to say a HUGE Thank You to youContinue Reading

Let’s do a Give Away!

Yippee! I read tons of blogs and a lot of them are doing give-aways. Who doesn’t like to win something?? Now, I know how many hits this blog gets a day and I have to say, I’m a bit disappointed in my lack of comments. So, in order to win, you have to leave aContinue Reading

A taste of Morocco…

I’m 100% impressed with the work this bride put into the details of her wedding day. Guests were coming up to me left and right, complementing me on what a wonderful job I did and each time I had to tell them that all the credit went to the bride – all I did wasContinue Reading

Dreamy

Remember that dreamy dress I blogged about last week? Blue Glass Photography shot that wedding and Alain sent over this photo for me yesterday. Dreamy dress, dreamy sunset, just dreamy…

Toughest part of my job…

Looking at all the beautiful desserts and not being able to eat them….could you imagine how huge I would be if I had a piece of cake from every wedding I attended?! The bride sent us this table cloth for the table and VI Desserts whipped up these beautiful cupcakes with sugar flowers on top.Continue Reading

I want a redo!

And I want to redo it in this dress! I just love the style of this dress my bride wore last week at her wedding on Trunk Bay, St. John. The mermaid style, the detail around the chest…just gorgeous and totally my style. She looked amazing! Her make-up and hair was done by Sugar &Continue Reading
