Sunsets, Sails & a Wedding ♥
Several months ago, I had the privilege to be a part of such an amazing love story. Jack contacted me with an idea to propose to his girlfriend, Marcela during a sunset dinner overlooking the beautiful Caribbean Sea. Here's the catch, I had to be icognito the entire time. Talk about an adventure!
Frederiksed, St. Croix, US Virgin Islands has the best sunsets in the world, yes! I am biased, so there could not have been a more romantic ambiance. It was just something straight out of a movie. The warm breeze, clear skies and crystal blue waters set the scene for a perfect dinner proposal. I snapped and hid, snapped and hid (or so I thought, Ha!). After all, it is quite difficult hiding a huge camera lens from restaurant guests trying to enjoy their dinner. Definitely a memorable night to say the least.
Dinner + Sunset + Beach + Wedding Proposal? Yes, Please!
As the skies were turning different shades of oranges, yellows and pinks, I tried by best to snap and not give way to the big surprise. Shortly after dinner (and wine), the waitress brought out the dessert along with a big surprise! The Ring! (Insert several Aw's here)
A loud cheer could be heard throughout the restaurant as dinner guests witnessed Jack fall to one knee and romantically propose to an elated Marcela, who quickly said yes!
And just how do you top such an unforgettable, romantic, sunset wedding proposal? With an intimate, romantic sunset sail aboard a beautiful resort class 42' Catamaran called Renegade, ofcourse!
Christiansted's Boardwalk was simply beaming that evening with such a beautiful bride and handsome groom. The bride let her beauty do the talking in her simple wedding dress, hair accents and fresh-flower bouquet.
Throughout our sail, I could not help but notice Jack's genuine love for Marcela. As natural and clear as the deep blue waters of St. Croix, was his attention and devotion to his wife-to-be. Truly admirable!
The two-hour sunset sail was perfect for such a low-key, intimate couple. Jack and Marcela said "Ay-Ay" and "I Do" on the boat surrounded by their very close family and friends.
The officiant was Captain Steve Kammerzelt; a Universal Life Church minister and a Senior Captain at Big Beard's Adventure Tours.
Long live the bride and groom!
