A wedding in the US Virgin Islands (Ritz Carlton, St Thomas)

This past summer I had the pleasure of touring the US Virgin Islands to scout for a few great wedding venues and fun destination wedding excursions & activities.  Boy did I ever hit the jackpot! Here is my first post in the series, highlighting The Ritz Carlton on the island of St Thomas.

The Ritz Carlton St Thomas is spectacular.  There are several outdoor and indoor waterfront locations to choose from for all your weekend events.  I especially loved the wedding gazebo that seemed to hang over the super blue waters of the Caribbean. The resort is also an easy drive in and out of town (shopping & restaurants) and to/from the airport.

One of the many outdoor dining areas overlooking the waters and surrounding islands.
Perfect for a welcome reception, wedding reception or farewell brunch.

The courtyard of the lobby building.  Whats cool about it - there aren't any interior walls!  Everything is open air.  So beautiful.
