A paradise comprised of three small islands beckoning couples to immerse themselves in romance and relaxation, the U.S. Virgin Islands are the quintessential spots to host a romantic tropical getaway.
The unique atmosphere of the U.S. Virgin Islands is waiting for you.
If the words ‘tropical’ and ‘exotic’ come to mind when planning your destination wedding in the Caribbean, then consider the U.S. Virgin Islands for your big day. With historic churches and other worship spaces that combine tradition with the heart of island life, the islands are a unique option to say “I do.” Of course, couples can also select to have a barefoot wedding on a perfect, white-sand beach surrounded by Palm Trees. The U.S. Virgin Islands include the islands of St. John, St. Croix and St. Thomas, and couples looking to plan an unforgettable wedding will have a hard time choosing between their options. Each island is as gorgeous, friendly and welcoming as the last.
The largest US Virgin Island is home to rolling tropical hills, breathtaking beaches and small-town charm.
A short flight from Puerto Rico in the US Virgin Islands, St. Croix has been inhabited by many countries over the year, ranging from England, to France and the US. With its medley of cultural influences, St. Croix is a charming, if eclectic island, with idyllic beaches and beautiful historic towns. Since St. Croix has quite a few ecological preservations and is home to endangered turtle species, nature-based excursions are quiet popular. The island also has a few beautiful beachside towns including Christiansted, which has historic churches and stunning cobbled streets.
If you’re looking for the privacy and beauty of a secluded island with the amenities of an upscale resort, try St. John, the small but mighty island.
Let’s face it: there are some finicky travelers out there who think they want total seclusion on their getaway, until they realize they’re completely and utterly bored and dissatisfied. If this sounds like you, St. John is a great bet. With miles of secluded beaches and 60% of its land covered in pristine national park, the island is perfectly remote and uninhabited. Still, after you’ve finished snorkeling, hiking, or sunbathing in complete privacy, you can retire to the Island’s many luxuries- think upscale boutiques and beautiful waterfront restaurants.
A popular stop in the US Virgin Islands, the wedding venues in St. Thomas provide a backdrop that packs beauty, culture and amenities into its teeny 32 square miles.
St. Thomas has a rich history dating back to 2500 BC, when the island was first settled by Indians. Fast-forward a couple thousand years and a few pirates later, St. Thomas is a cosmopolitan Caribbean hideaway with beautiful beaches and plenty to explore. The colorful history doesn’t just extend to touring old pirate captain’s castles – there are also striking Georgian-styled cathedrals covered in ancient murals and teeming with history. If you’re looking for a breathtaking Caribbean view, be sure to climb the famous 99 steps of the Charlotte Amalie. All these features make weddings in St. Thomas so exciting and romantic.
