    Dear Brides,


    My name is Aaron Soares, a professional wedding photographer on Saba, Dutch Caribbean. First, congrats on your future wedding and much happiness together.


    I'll would to know, are you still looking for your wedding photographer? If so, I'll like to invite you to your very own pre-event consultation to see if I'm the wedding photographer you are looking for and to see if you are the bride I'm looking to capture along with your groom, family, and friends on your very special wedding day.


    You can see some of the past weddings I have captured on my website:



    Feel free to contact me via Facebook, my website, or on here BDW of any questions you may have.


    I look forward in connecting with you.

      We're also getting married in St. Thomas June 2012 at a private home. Any recommendations for DJ's, steel pan players, and videographers?

        Hi All!


        I am recently engaged and also a 2012 St Thomas bride to be!!! I've never been to the islands, but the pictures are amazing and it fits with everything that we were looking for (and everyone's posts here have been incredibly helpful so far!). One question though - does anyone know how long it takes to get around the island??


        Thanks and happy planning!!

          Hi MrsZtoB


          I'm not sure if you have something specific in mind, but assuming no traffic... The airport is 5-10 minutes north of Charlotte Amalie, Charlotte Amalie is then 20-25 minutes from either Red Hook on the East End or Magens on the Northside, and then Red Hook to Magens Bay would be 15-20 minutes. 


          Hope this helps

            Hi St. Thomas brides-to-be =)



            I need help!


            So my fiance and I are really interested in having our whole DW venue (ceremony/cocktail hour/reception) at an all inclusive hotel...#1 bc most of the family/friends considering making the trip out to celebrate have kids! so villas/apts are out bc they dont wanna deal with the grocery/cooking aspect...


            we really like the Marriott but im scared itll be a bit pricey for everyone....can anyone give me a ballpark $ on how much it is per person there?

                  All Inclusive at the marriott is extremely expensive even in low season! For low season they told us it would be around $450-500 per night based on single/double occupancy.

                      @Nicole-  The event coordinator sent me the same menus for group events that are on their site (www.havanabluerestaurant.com/) under "Party".  We customized our menu because we wanted to change a few of the choices.  Our price ended up at about $90 per person for a four course meal, including dessert.  Oh, and I think the service charge is 20%.  We didn't do an alcohol package because our party is only 17 people, half of which don't really drink.  So we opted to just be billed on consumption for drinks.  We also added a cocktail hour with hors d'oeuvres at about $5 per person, I think.


                      Also, the event manager is no longer Kate Atwell... it's now Natalie Ippolito.  She's been just as friendly and nice as Kate was, though!  Her email is nataliei@whitesandeventsvi.com
