St. John USVI Weddings: A must for you and your guests!

Are you planning a destination wedding on St. John? Then this is a MUST for your trip! If it’s just the two of you eloping, definitely make plans to stop by Mongoose Junction in Cruz Bay to check out The Tap Room. If you’re bringing friends and family down to celebration with you? Consider The Tap Room as a fun spot for a welcome party or event.

The Tap Room is an adorable little tree house type pub that offers locally brewed island beers, including a delicious Tropical Mango – but to be honest, the Liquid Sunshine Ale is my choice (how can you beat the name?!). They have great food for a welcome party or day after get together and fun little souvenirs that you can give to guests or add to their welcome bags (I picked pink for myself!). Their online store has some really great finds…does your groom have a his own man cave with a tap? An awesome wedding gift would be their custom beer taps!

The Tap Room, St. John

Definitely check out their website and to learn more about their awesome story, check this out (believe me, it’s worth watching if you’ve ever dreamt about moving to the islands!).

If you’re interested in having an event at The Tap Room, let me know and I’ll be happy to set it up for you!

Ocean Palm Villa, St. John

This was my first event at Ocean Palm Villa on St. John, way past Coral Bay. It’s in a remote little location but you never even need to leave – it has it’s own beach, pool and five star accommodations! This place is ah-mazing. Jessica put a lot of work into DIY projects and weContinue Reading

We’re home!

We made it back to the islands earlier this week and are glad to be back. Although, after viewing the images of this wedding we had in June on St. John, at the lovely A La Mer Villa, I wish THIS were home!! Check out this back yard!! And the front yard isn’t too shabbyContinue Reading

Pyros of the Caribbean!

We’ve used this group before and they always amaze me! I think its one of the best fire shows in the Caribbean. Pyros performed for us last week at our Rhumblines reception in St. John – if you’re friends with Island Bliss Weddings on Facebook, you may have seen my iPhone pictures of the performance.Continue Reading

Excitement in the air…

I’ve already experienced an influx of emails from potential 2010 brides…a result of Christmas Eve & Christmas Day engagements. The days leading up the NYE though, you can just feel the electricity in the air as girlfriends everyone are wondering if the New Year will elevate them to fiance and then to wife status! MyContinue Reading

Hitting the High Seas

I love boat weddings, they are so unique and so much fun for your guests. I think it takes a certain type of couple to want one of these weddings though. They are not your traditional, walk down the aisle type affairs. They usually end with the bride & groom jumping off the boat inContinue Reading

Real Life Experience…

So I brought my Flip Video Camera with me to my beach wedding Saturday morning. This wedding took place at Hawksnest Beach, St. John. It was a 10:30 ceremony with reception following at the Waterfront Bistro in Cruz Bay afterwards. Everything was set up and ready to go, I was just waiting around for everyoneContinue Reading

Not a bad commute, eh?

I snapped this photo on my way home from a sunset wedding on St. John last week. All the cars are lined up waiting to get on the ferry and the sun had just about set…

The next big wedding song…

My husband came home the other day and immediately went to his computer to download this song. He had heard it on the radio and said, “this is the next big first dance song, just wait and see…” It is a gorgeous song, and I agree, it would make a great first dance song! IContinue Reading

I’m not Dilly Dally!

I’ve been screaming this in my head all day – I’ve been meaning to get a photo of the prize up on the blog all week but we are knee deep in wedding season right now. It has been so busy. There is a voice in the back of my head that keeps reminding meContinue Reading
