My first blog posting

It is an exciting time at Island Style Weddings.   January 28, 2010 marks the 8th anniversary of my resignation from the Westin St  John .  I remember my boss  saying " You're going to give me a few weeks notice right? "  I quickly shook my head NO!   I was keenly aware that in the sales and marketing division of the hospitality industry, there is no such thing as " notice". I was surprised by his comment, having  anticipated being walked off the property that day.  Divine discontentment had given me courage to do what my heart had been telling me for way, way too long. There was no backing out now!! Needless to say the rest is history.   The leap of faith 8 yrs ago and a belief  that there was something more meaningful for me to be doing and .....  Island Style Weddings was born.

So on this day of my first post and in honor of the 8th year of Island Style Weddings, I am deeply honored to have received from the Wedding Wire the following announcement......
