British Virgin Islands

I have been meaning to update my blog posting on the British Virgin Islands for so long now. First off, since re-vamping my blog earlier this year, I noticed some of my first postings just didn't do justice for my photos. Secondly, I have had so many people ask me questions about this beautiful destination and shown interest in going, putting up more pictures is a must!

In the many times I have gone to visit the BVI's (yes, having a boyfriend who lived on Tortola made it all the more appealing) I have come to think of it as a place I am constantly wanting to go back to. I love that fact that it is so down to earth and its not your typical "tourist destination". Think of the most beautiful place on earth and eliminate the large chains of resorts and you are left with true paradise...that's the BVI's.

Now you're probably wondering what to do in the BVI's, so I have created a top ten. (With the help of a pretty cute guy who used to live there).

1. The Baths at Virgin Gorda
2. Sailing through the local islands
3. Cane Garden Bay - a great surf spot, or lounging on the beach
4. Visiting Sandy Spit - and try and run around it in 2 minutes
5. Soggy Dollar and the Willy T
6. Diving! Simply amazing.
7. Dinner at The Dove
8. Anegada (a fair way to get to, but well worth it)
9. Visiting the Bomba shack for a full moon party.
10. Foxy's for New Years Eve or the Last Resort for live music any night of the week.

Sunshine Coast Wedding - Jenny+Rein

The Sunshine Coast is an amazing destination to host a wedding. With a pleasant mixture of sea life, sunshine, and the peaceful water wrapped around us, I was smitten with this magical location. I couldn't be more excited to share with you the marriage of Jen and Rein, hosted by Painted Boat Resort on the Sunshine Coast, BC. Jen and Rein were just beaming with happiness all day long in front of their closest friends and family. Congratulations to the two of you, what a special day you shared and I wish you all the best!
