Kayla & Mark

a wedding and reception at Magens Bay, St. Thomas, Virgin Islands

Kayla and Mark were so excited to plan a destination wedding while their cruise ship was in port in St. Thomas, Virgin Islands.

BUT ONCE IT WAS TIME TO START PLANNING, THEY FOUND THAT THE CRUISE LINES SIMPLE DON’T OFFER MUCH IN THE WAY OF CUSTOMIZATION OR SERVICES ON ISLAND.

They wanted more options than just the standard cruise ship wedding package. And then they found me! And together, we planned a day that was the perfect mix of we’re-getting-married and we’re-on-vacation.

Check out the pics from Savanah Loftus.

Kayla and Mark’s ship arrived at 8am, so we zipped over to the courthouse to pick up the marriage license which they had filed via mail a few weeks beforehand.

Mark returned to the ship to get dressed with the guys, while Kayla met up with the ladies at Sugar and Spice Salon and Spa, at Yacht Haven Grande for some bridal beauty.

After getting ready, Kayla, Mark, and their guests headed to the beach for a short and sweet ceremony followed by an easy luncheon reception on the beach.

And then of course, BEACH TIME!

Thank you for all of your help, everything turned out better than I hoped for! My only complaint is that it flew by so fast. I received a lot of compliments on all of it!  Savanah is amazing too! I couldn’t believe how amazing the pictures turned out. It made it very difficult to narrow them down to put up on my wall.
