Our Wedding Day - May 22, 2010

What can I say other than spending 2 weeks in the Caribbean ain't too shabby! I mean, spending the week leading up to our wedding with family and friends was more than we could ask for. Our wedding day was magical and memorable for all who were there and our added week in Jost Van Dyke was the cherry on top.
I am unable to describe how blessed and loved we feel. 50 people attended our wedding. 50. That is one of the largest destination weddings our photographer and coordinator had ever seen. Family and friends traveled from all over the country to enjoy some time in the Caribbean and attend our wedding. We really do have the BEST family and friends! Our wedding day was truly a magical day. And now Bryan and I get to annoy each other forever :-)
Following our wedding, we took a ferry to Jost Van Dyke, a British Virgin Island, to decompress and unwind from all of the wedding hoopla. We enjoyed a relaxing week in our beachfront bungalo... sipping on Pain Killers and Bloody Mary's at the world famous Soggy Dollar Bar, kayaking through the Caribbean and eating lobster dinners on the sand. This island is as tiny as they come. Our hotel consisted of 6 huts on the sand. Relaxing doesn't even begin to explain our time on the island -- we felt like we were comatosed... so much so that we left the island a day early to return to St. Thomas for 1 night. The Marriott on St. Thomas was the PERFECT way to end our 2 week stay in the Caribbean -- turns out I'm a resort kinda gal. Shocking, I know! But hey, anyone would have a hard time sleeping without airconditioning and finding lizards in your room!
After coming home from our wedding extravaganza, we quickly unpacked our suitcases, did laundry and began packing our backpacks for our trip to Europe...


  1. I'm so happy you had such a memorable and beautiful wedding. You deserve it! I can't wait for you to be able to show those pictures to your kids and grandkids someday!!!

  2. Sounded so nice! Ya'll looked so nice and happy! My fiance proposed to me in St. Thomas October 2009 and we're getting married this April here in Florida where we live. St. Thomas holds so many special memories for us, what a beautiful place!


I love hearing from you and always try to respond to your comments!
