After a delayed start (our shuttle bus Portland to Boston broke down and we missed our flight, thus also missing our connecting flight in Charlotte. We had to spend 24 hours in Charlotte which was rather frustrating but ok because we were lucky to have dinner with bride and friend, Carolyn), we are safely back home after a whirlwind trip to St. John.
In 36 hours, we were lucky to explore most of this 9 mile island in a fun Jeep, sample some of the local fare with three caterer visits and at Flavors (a rotary fundraiser that featured about 20 restaurants), and (drum roll!) see our wedding villa, Kalorama!! It's absolutely stunning and exactly what we envisioned! We'll be staying there for the week of our wedding with friends, and hope to have our wedding dinner reception there as well.
We have a better grasp on some other decisions that still need to be made (rehearsal dinner location, ceremony beach, etc) and will update our wedding website as they come together. We can't wait for April! Below are a few snapshots, and check out my Facebook page for more.
I hope you all had a great weekend, too, and are gearing up for the food coma to come on Thursday! I'm looking forward to spending the day with my family here in Maine and wish you all a special day with loved ones, too!
