A great local island favor!

I was in one of the higher end grocery stores on St. Thomas last week and saw a little display with these adorable mason jars filled with local rum cake. I immediately thought these would make awesome wedding favors! Locally made local products are always the most sought after favors for island weddings and this one is too cute. Check them out at Virgin Island Rum Cakes!

PS Another great thing about these favors? They’re local so you don’t have to worry about shipping them here or bringing them with you!


You may remember I attended my brothers wedding back in April. April is a very busy wedding season for us and it just wasn’t possible for my husband to join me for the wedding, as he needed to stay behind for weddings here in the islands. I was pretty bummed that he couldn’t come…the wayContinue Reading

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.

July Re-Cap!

I have to say, I’m kind of impressed that my July Re-Cap is getting done by August 8th! Last month was busier than expected and then my trip away got extended a few extra days (I thought I would be back on the 29th but didn’t fly in until the 31st). I had such aContinue Reading

Congrats to John & Stacia!

I meant to get this blogged before my trip last month! Stacia was so nice to send me these images from her wedding on Lime Tree Beach, shot by Elisha Orin Photography! Congrats again Stacia & John, it was such an honor to be a part of your day!

Making your own Capiz Shells!

You have no idea how many times brides have sent me this image: Brides love, love, love those hanging shells. Vendors…not so much. 🙂 They are really expensive and just a slight breeze can turn those beautiful hanging shells into a bit of mess. When done properly though, I admit that it’s really pretty. ButContinue Reading
