REAL HONEYMOON: ST LUCIA

We love planning Honeymoons and working with our clients and newly married, Kristin and Adam, reminds us each day why we love planning our soon to be newly weds first trip together as husband and wife! Months after their gorgeous wedding, they left the Wisconsin winter and flew away to an incredible honeymoon in St. Lucia, enjoying a Penthouse Honeymoon Beachfront suite at Sandals Grande St. Lucian Spa & Beach Resort.

Here’s a peak into their wedding & honeymoon…..

It was such a pleasure to work with Kristin & Adam.  To hear their client story and read about their Real Honeymoon read below….

Where did you get married? Wedding reception location?

We got married in a beautiful church in downtown Milwaukee. Our reception was at the elegant and historic Pfister Hotel – Imperial Ballroom. Single-handedly the best night of our lives.

What did you most enjoy during your vacation?

Where do we start – St. Lucia was a perfect honeymoon. It was the first time in years that we actually just relaxed. No computers, no cell phones. We loved our resort (Sandals – Grande St. Lucian) – top notch rooms and amazing food. The island itself is breathtaking, and there is so much to do. On the days that we wanted to lounge – sitting by the pool or by the beach – it was sitting in the middle of paradise. However, St. Lucia is a friendly island, and we were comfortable exploring as much as we wanted to – plus the island is never short of amazing adventures.

Can you share any recommendations or travel tips? (activities, best room types, etc.)

Without a doubt – Simon Say’s Speed Boat Tour. It gave an amazing view of the island without such a long drive on the island roads. We were able to snorkel and see the incredible Pitons (a must). We were able to take a steamy mud bath at the Sulphur Spings Volcanic Park. The day ended with local cuisine and a jump in the freezing cold waterfall. We would recommend it to anyone. Plus – entirely reasonable from a cost perspective. We also hiked the Pigeon Island National Landmark – amazing view of the northern tip of the island. You can even see Martinique.

What is the one thing you would not be without when traveling?

Come on – this is an easy one – my husband. He is my partner in crime and I would never want to be without him during these adventures. However – now that I just got the new Ipad – I think that may be my answer. And of course my beach book and sunscreen!

Tell us about you. What city do you live in? Do you have any pets?

We live in Milwaukee, WI. You may not think there is a lot to do here. . but it is an amazing city. Lake Michigan is beautiful. The city completely comes alive in the summer. It is the home of the one and only – world’s largest music fest – Summerfest.

Easton is our wonderful, 90 pound black lab of pure fun. He is quite challenging at times – but is a big cuddler at heart! Our lives have never been the same since he came into them. We named him after the hockey stick and softball bat!

Thanks for the honeymoon of our dreams! We were so undecided but you made the planning so simple.  Your recommendations were spot on.  Hiking, zip-lining, relaxing on the beach- Costa Rica had it all. We can’t wait to return for an anniversary! IF NOT SOONER! Jared & Nicole
