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 travel agents in the Caribbean market. I, along with Eric Johnson of Paradise Pictures and Ashley Armitage of Ashley Photography, represented our group (which includes Passion Fruit Chefs, VI Desserts, Chris Robbert music, Sugar & Spice Artistry, East End Flower Shop, DJ Snow and HiDef Video – check out the website at www.viweddingassociation.org!).

Our little booth:

We didn’t have any give-aways at our booth, but Biras Creek of Virgin Gorda had killer canvas tote bags they were giving away! I chatted up the rep from their resort in hopes she would hand me one, but no such luck. I love give-aways! Next year, I’ll have to pretend I’m a travel agent instead. =)

The highlight of the show for me was the Caribbean Ritual Dancers. They put on an AMAZING show and even had a traditional moko jumbie perform and entertain the crowd. We’ve hired them before to entertain at weddings and they are always a huge hit.

Thank you to the Wyndham Sugar Bay for hosting the event and to the tourism department for sponsoring it!

Name Cards…love this!

I can not take credit for this idea or this wedding, I believe all the credit goes to the bride and Havana Blue, but I just had to share this. I am definitely looking forward to a bride that wants to do this at her own reception. I think it is so beautiful! Of course,Continue Reading

Have your cake…

and eat it too! I just love this cake from our wedding last night at Havana Blue on St. Thomas. The blue matched the bridesmaid dresses perfectly. More pictures to come soon!

Yummy Alternative

Mmmmm…our bride & groom on Saturday chose to have delicious chocolate covered strawberries from VI Desserts at their ceremony instead of a traditional wedding cake. Since their wedding was on Magen’s Bay, it was really nice to have a sweet treat that guests could pick up and eat like an appetizer instead of balancing aContinue Reading

Cake Toppers

When a bride plans a destination wedding, many don’t think of their cake toppers as top priority. Well, I guess when any bride plans her wedding, a cake topper isn’t a top priority! Many destination brides are looking for ways to keep their luggage light and hauling a cake topper with them just doesn’t makeContinue Reading
