Marlena & Jimmy

Marlena & Jimmy marry on Marlena's childhood home of St. Croix in the US Virgin Islands. So, a pseudo-destination wedding, as a large portion of the wedding party live on St. Croix. *vendor list at bottom of page* Oh, boy, do I love the perspective of this local bride..."If there’s anything I’ve learned from growing up on St. Croix, it’s that sometimes you’ve just got to work with what the island gives you," Marlena lends some expert advice to future brides, and if I'm being honest, great life advice for anyone. Nothing ever happens exactly as you've planned; understanding that and having the grace to roll with the punches gives you ...

Located on the east end of St. Croix just past Christiansted at Chenay Bay.With a beautiful view and a great bay for swimming, snorkeling, and paddleboarding it a perfect venue for wedding parties with lots of children. Individual cottages are rented here making it feel like your own little wedding village. They don't have an on-site designated wedding planner but you know you can always ask me for help finding the perfect wedding planner for your needs. St Croix has no shortage of wonderful event planners and vendors.

Another amazing St Croix wedding in the books! I am so fortunate. I may spend hours editing photos (the less glamorous side of professional photography) but they are hours spent reliving the happiest moments in the lives of the most wonderful people. Every wedding is unique, every family has its own special traditions and each couple has their own individual flavor. I get to capture, polish, share and experience LOVE....for a living! Seriously, how lucky am I?! Eric and Uggi's wedding was awe-inspiring, so much love and so many smiles. Uugi's family is Mongolian and I am so in love with the traditional tea ceremony!
