A most wonderful welcome!

Alyssa and Kurt were married last weekend, but my absolute favorite element of their wedding day actually took place the day before at their Welcome Party. Hosted at a beautiful beachside location, Iggies Beach Bar at Bolongo Bay Resort is the perfect spot to celebrate island style. There were so many elements of the welcome party that I loved, so the entire event is my favorite! Here are a few highlights…

A gorgeous sunset…


A meet & greet with a local Moko Jumbie! Moko Jumbies are good spirits dressed up to scare away bad spirits, as local legend goes (a jumbie is a bad spirit, “moko” means mock – a fake jumbie). Having a white moko jumbie at your welcome party keeps away any bad marital jumbies!

Here our bride gets down with the moko jumbie!

Once the sun went down and everyone’s belly was full, we had the famous fire eater & broken bottle dancer “Princess Diana” perform for the guests…

Princess Di showed the groom and the groomsmen a few island moves…

But probably my favorite part of the night was a performance by Pyros of the Caribbean! I have some of this on video that I promise to post soon…
