Jamie and Jonathan: Private Island Elopement
St. George’s Caye, Belize
It didn’t take long after meeting Jonathan and Jaime to realize how much in love they are with one another! As the day wore on we quickly realized that we were about to have the privilege of marrying two people who were best friends… one of the job perks we hold dearly to our hearts! Their quirky and laid back personalities infected our staff with passion to turn their wedding into an unforgettable moment.
Since this was an affair for two with not much prep work leading up to the ceremony, the lovely couple spent the afternoon enjoying each other’s company with a walk on the beach and a few cocktails in the Caribbean breeze. The ceremony was originally scheduled to take place on a nearby sandbar which was unfortunately submerged by seasonally high tides. Jonathan and Jamie were completely unfazed when we gave them the news that we were moving their sunset ceremony to a private beach on the back of the island.
The soon to be husband and wife held hands and sipped cocktails on the short boat ride to the private beach where they said their I-Do’s to the backdrop of lapping waves on the beach. The champagne popped shortly after and as the sun sank toward the horizon, a blazing sky emerged that we were unable to tear the happy couple away from before darkness overcame the island.
Once back at St. George’s Caye Island Resort, we bid the newly weds farewell as they enjoyed a private candle lit dinner in the courtyard.
