Stylish St. Barth's Wedding

Event Description
Just one glance at the turquoise waters and soft sands surrounding the utterly chic Le Sereno hotel, and you'll know that this wedding weekend was a perfect mixture of luxury, relaxation, and fun. This destination wedding, set on the picturesque St. Barthelemy, truly brought together a setting as special as the occasion.

The wedding ceremony was held on property overlooking the sea, with naturals, whites, and sisal colors weaving together a gorgeous base for the English garden-style decor. Vows were exchanged under a beautiful chuppah complete with green ivory and interspersed with blooms of roses and hydrangeas. One of the couples' favorite quotations was inscribed along the border of the wedding aisle in red, a personal detail that added even more meaning to the day.

A life-sized escort card display was created with natural wood and finished with an earth-toned linen. Each guest received a fresh flower with their name card as they found their seat. Napkins were fastened with a linen ribbon printed with another meaningful quote, reading, "In my end is my beginning". Cocktails took place around the unbeatable Le Sereno pool, just steps from the beach. At the end of cocktail hour, a surprise firework show that the bride dedicated to her groom wowed guests overhead, lighting up the beach and coconut trees below.

Curtains were raised to reveal the reception space and a lively dinner band. Long communal tables were lined with wooden troughs filled with loose, natural floral arrangements in white with fresh pops of bright red. Guests dined on a decadent menu including chilled soup poured tableside, roasted rack of lamb and fresh Chilean seabass, and tasty, sweet desserts.

The evening was filled with heartfelt speeches and loving toasts, and guests danced the night away on a colorfully lit dance floor. In true island style, following the reception, the celebration continued on the beach below with a spectacular bonfire, s'mores, and barefoot dancing.
