Goodbye 12/12/12!

I realized today that my last blog post was on the 2nd. Oops! The last two weeks have been crazy busy around here – we have had weddings every day since November 30th! I actually have the next five days off and plan to get caught up on blogs, emails and getting my January in order so that I can enjoy the holiday season once my kiddos get out of school next Friday. It’s such a magical time of year – definitely one of my favorites. I’m working from home this morning and as I look out over the ocean and the cloudy skies, it almost looks like winter! We’ve had a lot of rain showers this morning and if you squint, it almost looks like it’s snowing. I’m thankful for some time off to get caught up and even MORE thankful that the rain held off until today and we were able to get through 12/12/12 with no showers!

I didn’t really have anything planned to blog about today but I do have some ideas in mind for future posts. I want to start a “Helpful Hints” series that will go over various topics that I think will help brides through the sometimes stressful process of wedding planning. I’m hoping to get that started next week. For today though, I’ll share some photos of some recent weddings:

Still one of my favorite set-ups: blue mason jars with flowers, bamboo chairs….

Lindquist Beach, St. Thomas

Not all of our weddings are at the beach. This wedding was at the Dutch Reformed Church which was all decked out for Christmas:

Island Bliss Weddings

And on the deck of Sand Dollar Estates:

But lots of beach weddings of course! An afternoon ceremony at Maho Beach, St. John (the officiate is looking off at a ship in the distance that blew a conch shell when the bride & groom were pronounced husband and wife!)

Our lanterns in use at Secret Harbor Beach Resort (a nice shady spot for the guests!)

More to come over the next five days!

A Norbu Wedding

I had the privilege last month to coordinate a wedding at villa Norbu. This is not a villa that can rented for a week long stay, but is specifically designed for wedding & events. And specifically designed it is! Every detail of this place is completely thought out and top notch. The owners, Alain &Continue Reading

My ?? turned into a !!

We did a wedding last week at Villa Botanica, one of my favorite locations. My bride told me that the caterer was helping her put the favors together, which would be “cupcakes in a jar”. I kind of had to think about that one, cupcakes in a jar?? I wasn’t quite sure how that wouldContinue Reading

My husband thinks I’m nuts…

I don’t have any tattoos or really ever had a strong urge to get one. I could never figure out what I wanted or where I would put it. But I’ve always loved seahorses (this sounds a bit morbid, but when I was a little girl growing up in Indiana, I had a dried seahorseContinue Reading

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

By request…

Someone emailed me and asked for more photos of the flowers of our wedding at the St. Thomas Reformed Church – more specifically, the pew decor. It is gorgeous, isn’t it? And they smelled unbelievable. Peonies are a very difficult flower to get here in the island. They are a spring flower, liking the coolerContinue 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

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

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

Such a small world…

Shortly before leaving for Indiana…actually, one day before leaving for Indiana, we had a very small wedding for a beautiful couple staying at Sapphire Beach Resort. These two were so much fun, always laughing. I had picked them up the day before the wedding to take them to the courthouse to pick up their marriageContinue Reading
