My Wedding In San Pedro, Belize – A Guest Post by Kelly!

(From me…while I am in New Jersey for the holidays, I have recruited/begged a few people to help me out with some posts that will keep you in touch with good old Ambergris Caye.  Here is my first.  Happy Holidays!  And thanks so much Kelly…your wedding was gorgeous!  These are all her words…)Oh wait…still me.  This post shows a bit of what you can do getting married in Belize.  You can do big formal affair, you can do 2 person on a catamaran or you can do a 30 person laid back beach party.  It’s all up to you…

Hi there…I am Kelly, an avid reader of the San Pedro Scoop; so I am honored to be writing a guest post for  her blog. I love reading Rebecca’s posts daily as more often than not I feel more homesick for San Pedro than Boston. (We relocated to TX several years ago from the Boston area.)

We were married in San Pedro in April 2010 and I am happy to share that day with you. We had about 30 friends and family that joined us at the Sunbreeze Hotel for the week. Everyone had an amazing time and we could not say enough good things about Miss Julia and her staff. We left there feeling like we had made friends that will last a lifetime. (We’ve been back twice since the wedding and are planning on a third trip for April to celebrate our 3rd anniversary.)

We planned to work with Kay Scott for our photography, but unfortunately, due to a family emergency Kay was not going to be in town for our wedding. She suggested Colette and Maya at Creative Conch and we were extremely happy. They captured the memories we created that day perfectly and we had a blast working with them! Now I will let the pictures tell the story 🙂

(SanPedroScoop interrupting…LOVE THESE BRIDEMAIDS’ DRESSES.  They always say it…but these you COULD wear again.)

The groom’s turn…

We had wedding crashers!

Not the best picture of me but I loved that I was able to get a picture with the MP!! I found out when we went back in November that I made all of the staff of the Blue Water nervous when I went running out the police on the beach. Oops!!

It’s not a REAL party until Coconut Leo stops by…

A good time was had by all and I cannot say it enough how wonderful everyone was to us from the Sunbreeze and the Blue Water Grille!!

    I worked at Blue Water Grill the night of this wedding, and I have to say it was AWESOME! When the band stopped, Kelly and Jason put on their ipod, and it was the best wedding playlist of all time. When the first song started (Pour Some Sugar on Me if I’m not mistaken), all the wedding guests started dancing and didn’t stop. We couldn’t even serve dessert because they wouldn’t stop dancing. I don’t blame them, I mean, when Welcome to the Jungle is on, you just dance, right? So now Kelly and Jason get free key lime pie for life at BWG to make up for not getting dessert at their wedding. See you guys soon! Cheers, Kelly from BWG
