I’m lucky to say that I have several amazing friends. One of which is my best friend from high school, Shannon. I was transferred to that school in the beginning of 10th grade. Shannon has always stuck with me and she’s the only one I still regularly speak to. Recently, Shannon decided to marry the love of her life, Megan. These ladies are amazing and have overcome a lot, both before they met and since they’ve been together. I couldn’t ask for a better person to be with one of my oldest friends. Okay, enough with the sappy stuff, take a look at their amazing LGBTQ St Thomas Wedding.
During the planning, Shannon pretty much let me take charge (or I just took over–not sure which). We (and I use that term loosely) decided to do the ceremony at Limetree Beach, which is now one of my favorite beaches on the island.
Limetree Beach is located on the south side of the island, between Bolongo Bay and The Marriott. It’s the perfect beach to get married if you’re looking for that Caribbean feel with a screen-saver backdrop. The best time to have your St. Thomas wedding at Limetree is between 9:00-11:00 am; 11 being the absolute latest. After 11, the beach fills up pretty quickly. Also, in the morning, you have that perfect turquoise Caribbean water.
Shannon and Megan decided to have their wedding at 9:30 am. The water was perfect and there weren’t too many people on the beach. It was a perfect day for an LGBTQ St Thomas Wedding. Here are some of my favorite photos from their big day.
And I’ll close this blog with this last silly picture. To the naked eye, it looks like Shannon is actually pointing at something. This is something that she has done for pictures, likely before she ever knew me. She’s pointing at nothing. If I dug deep enough, I’m sure I could find some photos of our little group of people pointing at nothing for a photo.
To Shannon and Megan, I wish you both a lifetime of happiness. You’re both very lucky to have found one another! Come back soon!
