Show Us Your Life:Reception And Honeymoon

In this installment of Show Us Your Life from Kelly's Korner, I get to show you our reception and honeymoon!

Our reception took place directly after the wedding in The Galleria. The Galleria is a beautiful window-filled building directly adjacent to the wedding site. Along with The Galleria, we also had a tent that held the DJ and dance floor.

Here is a view of the gazebo and tent. The Galleria is just beyond the tent.


Below is a picture of the inside of The Galleria.


Here are our cakes.


Our first dance.


For our honeymoon we went to St. Lucia and stayed at the Jalousie Plantation near Soufriere. The town of Soufriere is pictured below.

We enjoyed relaxing on the beach with a beautiful view of the Pitons.

We drank lots of yummy Piton Beer.

While in St. Lucia, we also visited beautiful waterfalls, the botanical gardens, and the sulfur volcano. Michael enjoyed scuba diving and we both enjoyed snorkeling!

Our favorite places to eat were Cafe Bang (located at Jalousie Plantation) and Dasheene (located at Ladera resort). Here's a picture of us at Dasheene.

Here's a picture of the view from Dasheene.

I have such fond memories of our honeymoon. I hope that one day we will be able to go back to St. Lucia. If you are searching for a honeymoon destination, St. Lucia is a great one!

I hope you enjoyed this installment of Show Us Your Life. I can't wait to see all the other receptions and honeymoons out there!!! Thanks again for letting me share!
