Blog #3 - April 15th, 2016
This is the first blog of 2016. We must be the worst
bloggers ever. We have been busy uniting
our couples in marital island bliss!
We just had an amazing couple from Massachusetts get
married in Hawksnest Bay off in the waters of St.
John, US Virgin Islands. After the ceremony they jumped
overboard in full wedding attire! What an amazing
day! After the wedding they and their 12 guests spent
the rest of the day sailing, snorkeling, chilling,
feasting, and playing island style. Congrats!
Welcome to Island Wedding Services in beautiful St. Thomas,
US Virgin Islands! If it seems that we're a bit late getting
our blog started, please remember that we are on island
time. It’s hard to describe what island time actually
is, but when you come down here to St. Thomas, you’ll
immediately feel it and know it. Time meanders along and
your stress level decreases here in the tropics. Your aging
process is slowed in exact proportion to the number of days
you spend here! Some blame it on the rum.
During the past decade our staff at Island Wedding Services
have enjoyed the trust and gratitude of many, many —thousands,
in fact — happy couples who opted out of the big-bucks,
stress-filled mainland weddings with all the expensive trimmings
and relied on us for that one special memory: a tropical
wedding where the honeymoon begins right before the ceremony.
We’ve been proud to receive many testimonials, and
you can’t make up that stuff, mon! (“Mon”
is island slang, and when you hear it for the first time,
you’ll know you’re really in the islands.)
So now that
we have our first blog on the record, we’ll be adding
to it weekly with bits and pieces about this and that. Our
goal is to continue making that song “Don’t
worry, be happy” a reality for couples who want to
start their lives together on island time.
We also like being informative and interesting. For example,
did you know that Christopher Columbus “discovered”
St. Thomas in 1493 during his second voyage to the New World?
He wasn’t all that impressed and decided to head west
toward Puerto Rico. Our beautiful island quickly became
the home to — arrrh! — pirates!
If you’re into the pirate thing, we can do a pirate-themed
ceremony for you. Just leave your wristwatch behind. We’re
on island time down here.
Thanks for visiting our blog. Please contact us and we’ll
tell you everything you need to know about our full array
of services for your island wedding ... And don't worry,
