In our opinion, everyone should take a trip of a lifetime at some point. Our older brother, Brian, and his now wife, Megan, decided to have a destination wedding with the family + close friends. Their destination of choice: the beautiful island of St. Lucia.
In May 2016, we packed our bags for the Caribbean. Catching a flight to Charlotte for one day then taking another flight to St. Lucia the next was an exhausting two days. However, as soon as we stepped foot at the resort, all the traveling stress disappeared. We got in our rooms and went straight to the bar for food + drinks.
Being in the south Caribbean comes with about 90% humidity. But what made that better was the open beach and two different pools we had access to! Don’t forget the free endless food + drinks! The first few days we arrived to the Sandals Resort, we explored, drank some great liquor + ate some delicious food.
On the fourth day of being in Paradise, Brian + Megan said their vows to each other. It was the most beautiful setting at sunset. Megan walked down the aisle with her Grandfather and was the most stunning bride. It was a beautiful ceremony followed by a family dinner at one of the restaurants at the Resort.
Our last day on the island of St. Lucia, we all agreed to a little get-away (from the resort) + an adventure around the island. Our dad signed us all up for a boat + island tour to explore the top tourist/local spots on the island. Our tour guide picked us up in a speed boat + we traveled to the other side of the island, stopping at hit spots on the way. We snorkeled at the white sand beach, spotted famous resorts (including the resort Ben Higgins brought his ladies on Bachelor Season 20), + bathed in a volcano mud bath. We ended the tour having a delicious lunch at the tour guide’s mother’s home, which was hidden deep in what seems the forbidden jungle.
