Who doesn't love a tropical beach wedding? Two spirited love birds, Laurie and Jared, had their wedding ceremony at St. Georges Caye, an exotic caribbean island about eight miles east of Belize City. From its sugary beaches, to its dazzling blue waters, St. Georges Caye is a perfect venue to celebrate love and community.
The morning was brimming with lively chatter as a quiet breeze sweetened the air. Guests were able to dress for the occasion while trying out some of Belize’s local beverages, from Caribbean rum to Belikin beer. The venue was held at St. Georges Caye Resort, a cozy yet luxurious beach paradise where gardens of wild flowers weave in and out of thatched-roof cabanas. Laurie, clutching a vibrant bouquet of tropical flowers, stepped down from the wooden balcony, her dress floating over the sand with cloud-like elegance. Jared, dressed in classic beige with a rose hibiscus placed on his shoulder, met eyes with Laurie under an archway of trees. After a teary embrace, it was time for the ceremony to begin.
The golden sky mirrored Laurie and Jared in radiance and beauty as they strolled down the aisle in barefoot bliss. The crowd stood in silence as the couple exchanged their vows, and in a few sweet moments, Laurie and Jared were officially hitched. The joy in the air was tangible as friends and family celebrated with cocktails and jazzy photoshoots. The sound of laughter and guitar strings drifted through the palm leaves with an occasional seagull gliding overhead. Some of the guests even took the opportunity to kick back and relax in the hammocks, it was a kind of wedding that was impossible not to enjoy.
As the sky became tinged with champagne-golds and rose-pinks, Laurie and Jared walked out onto the pier to enjoy the last few moments of sunlight. After the day gave itself over to the night, everyone gathered for a meal filled with delicious local cuisine prepared by the island’s finest chefs. The table was adorned with native flowers spilling out of glass vases, and Belize’s famous Bird of Paradise encased in shimmering lanterns. The rest of the evening was spent listening to live music, playing board games and exchanging stories at the resort’s homely beach lounge. The stars stretched over the island in chandelier-like clusters as the waves rolled over the shore, a whimsical ode to eternal love.
