My now husband and I were on the search for the perfect place to host our family and friends for a small and intimate wedding of our dreams. We have traveled to some of the northern Caribbean Islands (Anguilla, BVI’s, St. Martin) but nothing seemed to be the prefect fit. After tons of research I discovered St. Lucia and Awesome Caribbean Weddings on a few posts on Tripadvisor and was immediately intrigued. The pictures were amazing and everyone raved about Michele and her crew. I contacted Michele and immediately received tons of information on ideas, location spots, etc. My Mom and I planned a last minute trip and decided the only true way to know if it was “right” was to see everything first hand and meet Michele.
Michele met us at our accommodation the morning after we arrived and took us all over- showing us numerous spots to host the wedding and giving us tons of ideas. She then arranged several meetings with agents in the southern part of St. Lucia to assist with additional locations and villas. My Mom and I were there for 6 days and stayed 2 days up north, 2 days in the middle, and 2 days down South. Michele helped plan everything out! After our return, I knew it was the perfect place to have our wedding and I knew that there was NO ONE ELSE in the world I wanted to be in charge of planning our wedding:)
This was June of 2012 and we spend until April of 2013 planning everything out. I emailed Michele hundreds of times with questions, concerns, change of plans, etc and she was always quick to reply within a day. She could not have been more helpful! She sent pictures and pricing of every little detail (locations, wedding photographers, entertainment, flower arrangements, bouquets, wedding cake ideas, table decorations, etc). They were all ideas that you could pick and choose from and/or build your own ideas! It was sort of an a la carte wedding extravaganza!! Michele will literally do or find anything you want- its makes it so personal and unique and truly “your wedding”!!
We arrived in St. Lucia a few days before the wedding. Michele met us for breakfast (drove 2hrs one way to come meet us!) and went over every single little detail! She made sure everything was exactly how we wanted it and confirmed timing, hair/makeup appt, and had us sign the wedding documents so she could have everything processed and ready for our big day.
Our wedding was on Thursday May 9th at 4:30pm and was the most amazing day of our lives! Michele was there to make sure everything went perfectly and it truly did!! Our intimate beach wedding with close friends and family was truly something out of a fairytale and something no one, especially us will ever forget.
If you have ever dreamed of a destination wedding in the Caribbean, St. Lucia and Awesome Caribbean Weddings (Michele) is the absolute best option!
