I’m sorry I haven’t blogged in so long! The last two weeks of February and the first two weeks of March are busy, busy, busy…but I have a long list of things to blog about! One of which has to do with the following two photos:

But you’ll just have to wait to find out why. We have two more weddings to finish off the week!

Caribbean Tourism Organization

A few weeks ago, I had the opportunity to take part in a mini-trade show that the US Virgin Islands Department of Tourism was sponsoring for the Caribbean Tourism Organization. I actually took a part of it with the St. Thomas & St. John Wedding Association. It was really a fun way to meet travelContinue Reading

Happy Anniversary Baby!

Five blissful years of happiness with my wonderful husband! We were married 5 years ago, on May 28th, 2005. Pictures by Paradise Pictures, ceremony & reception at Oceana. I can’t believe we are already at five years! Two beautiful kids later, a wonderful wedding business, life just couldn’t be better! I had just gotten intoContinue 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

Wedding Gifts

Did you and your husband/wife exchange gifts to each other on your wedding day? Do you plan to if you are engaged? There are two schools of people in this category – those that do and those that don’t. Those that don’t either don’t know that this is something that they can do, or theyContinue Reading

Something to be thankful for…

Chenoa and Mike renewed their wedding vows earlier this month on Magen’s Bay. There are many different reasons why a couple will decide to renew their vows…they hit & survived a rough patch and want a new beginning…they are celebrating a big milestone anniversary…their mainland wedding wasn’t their dream wedding and they want the sandContinue Reading

Simply Photography

Not simple photography…don’t get me wrong there. But my first wedding of October was on the 5th for Stacey & George and there are two words that describe their wedding: Simple & Photography. As part of my promise to blog something about every wedding I have this month, it didn’t take long to review thisContinue Reading

Sunset Ceremony at Secret Gardens.

I helped plan a beautiful sunset ceremony at Secret Gardens on Peterborg, St. Thomas. Secret Gardens & Coral Gardens are two villas right next to each other, sharing the same driveway. They are perfect for renting for large groups – there are NINE bedrooms between the two villas! Our bride had a total of 24Continue Reading

A Photographer’s Wedding

My dear friend, EJ of Paradise Pictures, was married last Saturday at the St. Thomas Reformed Church. I was very honored to have EJ ask me to handle the day of coordination for him and his beautiful bride Ashlee. It was an absolutely beautiful ceremony in a gorgeous church setting. The St. Thomas Reformed ChurchContinue Reading

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year to all my brides, past & future! Congratulations to all those couples that said “I Do” in 2008, to those that will say it in 2009 and especially to all those couples who said, “I will” over the holidays. Looking forward to an amazing 2009…
