I am feeling especially thankful today on the many blessings that Island Style Weddings has given me.Never would I have dreamed 12 years ago when I left my 17 year career in the hotel industry that I would be so fulfilled.
As I reflect on the years prior to starting Island Style Weddings, I can see everything was a stepping stone.The happy times and the difficult ones each provided me with the skills to create my own business.
Many times throughout my career in 8 different hotels, I wondered if I would ever find fulfillment and joy in my career. The glimpses were there but I was not seeing them clearing yet.I had to get to the point of complete misery to receive the gift of desperation and to take the leap of faith.With all of $4000 to my name, I jumped! And what a jump it has been.........
It is such an honor to be part of such a personal and joyous occasion as a wedding celebration.I have met so many wonderful people in the years since Island Style Weddings began.
12 years ago I drove a Suzuki Sidekick, soft top with no air conditioning...... this was the brides transportation!There was no limo service at that time on St John.It was definitely an “Island Style” experience.I am thankful to all of the brides who loved every minute of our quirky island lifestyle.
I give thanks to all of the moms, dads, brides and grooms who believed in me and supported me along the way.I give thanks for this tiny gem of St John, Love City where I finally found “home”. This beautiful community of artists, misfits, musicians and warm gentle people have always supported me.
I am thrilled to see where this journey takes me. I look forward to meeting many more kind, creative and loving couples who will become part of the Island Style Weddings family.To all of the Island Style Weddings' family, thank you for opening up your hearts and filling my life with so much joy!
and the journey continues......
