St Thomas bride update....ROLL CALL

One quick comment- and this is meant to be helpful, not negative. I've heard that Sulan and Allain at Blue Glass are terrific. I've also heard, though, that some of the other photographers aren't quite as good. I have no personal experience (so perhaps I should refrain?) but I remember a bride I "met" on the Knot not being happy with her photos... anyway, you may want to see if you can specify a specific photographer.

Stumbled across this site and it looks like tons of fun.
Engaged: December 24th, 2008
Wedding Date: May 28th, 2010
Ceremony: Magens Bay
Reception: Rented Villa on the water
WC: Erica - owner of ABigToDoEvents.com
This is my 2nd wedding and I always said if I got married again it would be on the beach. Well little did I know back then that I'd be marrying a man from the islands. Fiance was raised on St Thomas and his grandparents, Uncles and great aunts/uncles still live on the island. Being my 2nd wedding I felt it more important that more of his family be able to participate (since the families here on the mainland live on opposite sides of the country). This totally pleased his mother. We have a group of 5 couples that are traveling with us. We are all very close and had talked about a group vacation to the islands and the wedding gave us the perfect excuse to make it happen.
My WC is actually here in Atlanta. I met her at a wedding bootcamp my BFF and I attended several months ago and we really clicked. And she's done events around the world. We are also bringing our photographer with us. The pictures were the MOST important thing to me when thinking about the planning so it only made sense. Plus, she's amazing both in her talent and personality. We felt the extra cost (airfare and rooms in the villa) were totally worth it. And I think by the end of the planning process they and their hubbys will be very good friends as well.
We were in St Thomas a few weeks ago for our annual trip to see the family and I had arranged for us to view a few villas. I knew I wanted to find a nice place we could not only stay in with our best friends and my family that is traveling there (the future in-laws are staying with the family), but also that had a nice outdoor space to hold the reception (about 50 people). We had fun touring the villas. We have picked one and are working with them to determine the final price. I hope it all works out.
Okay enough rambling. I'm looking forward to hearing everyones plans and seeing the pictures. It's such a beautiful place makes it hard not to have beautiful pictures.

I'm curious as to why you chose to work with a WC in MD vs one in St Thomas It's so easy to work with someone who actually know that area ya know (although I guess you wc may already know the island lol) Maybe you could consult with a St Thomas WC... Well anyway welcome to the thread and happy planning (please don't be offended by my question I'm just nosey. I asked one of my family members and my next door neighbor are both wc's and my fam wanted me to work with someone here as well as someone in st thomas... I'm like no I really can't afford that lol).

I'm Melissa and my fiance is Brian
We are getting married in St. Thomas on February 10, 2010 while our cruise ship is in port. We are still trying to decide on a wedding coordinator.
I'm excited to get to know you girls over the upcoming months! It's nice to "hang out" here and discuss wedding stuff...
