St. Kitts

The wedding was breath-taking. It was absolutely fabulous. The guests were taken to a remote beach area for the private sunset ceremony by car up through the mountain overlooking the island. Once the sunset, the guests were taken back to the reception at the property where a vervet monkey greeted them. The monkey participated in all the fun and we captured some great photos. One of the most important things for the couple was finding a minister who was personal and made the ceremony special. Our personal driver, whom we hired for the week, connected us to wonderful minister in town, who made the wedding perfect. There was not a dry eye on the beach once the couple stated their personal declaration to one another. It was unbelievable. I’ve done over 100 weddings in my career and this one by far topped them all. It was every girls dream wedding on the beach at sunset.

Obtaining the marriage license was very interesting. We followed the rules directly from the website, but that didn’t seem to apply once we got there. Luckily, our driver was able to guide us to the right people and the right places. The most hilarious thing that probably happened was when we entered the government center. They yelled at us for wearing our flip flops into the building. Later we found out that flip flops are only worn in the home, they call them house slippers. People in town continued to stare at our feet the entire time we were in the city.
