Sand Dollar Estate, St. Thomas | Kristyn & Drew
Kristyn & Drew planned an amazing wedding through Island Bliss Weddings at the Sand Dollar Estate on St.Thomas. The Sand Dollar Estate is located on Peterborg Point over looking Magen's Bay beach; one of the most popular and most beautiful beaches in St.Thomas. The cool thing at this Villa is that there are stairs that lead you down to your own private beach. This makes this place so special and ideal for an over the top wedding venue. Kristyn and Drew made a great decision in choosing Island Bliss Weddings to plan their event; they don't cut corners. Everything Island Bliss does is perfectly planned and the vendors they hire are the best out there.
I love that Kristyn chose to have all her family and formal pictures taken before the ceremony started, it takes a lot of pressure off of the bride and groom. They were able to relax for a little bit in the cold A/C before they made their way down to the beach to get married. Janelle at Island Bliss Weddings set up a beautiful arch with chairs set up down on the beach for them, absolutely breath taking. The arch was decorated by East End Flower shop; they always use the freshest flowers and make sure that everything is perfectly placed.
After their sweet ceremony performed by a close friend, I was able to capture a few more pictures of all their friends and family before they walked back up for the cocktail hour. I was also able to get more pictures of the bridal party down on the beach, and I totally took advantage of capturing some amazing sunset pictures of the bride and groom. The sunset pictures of the bride and groom are my favorite.
During cocktail hour they laughed, danced and was so over joyed by the awesome cake topper her made of honor crafted for her. After a little cake feeding of the bride and groom, they all went up stairs for dinner, prepared by Passion Fruit chiefs. Can I say how good Passion Fruit chief's are, everything first of all taste so good, they are on time with plating, attentive and make the whole dining experience just divine. They finish their evening with first dances and dance parties with all their guest. Kristyn & Drew were such a sweet couple that had an amazing wedding!
