St Maarten Wedding – Les Jardins de Bellevue
Brittany and Gene are so much FUN! Laughter is a constant in their relationship and its apparent the moment you meet them. Family and friends mean a lot to this big-hearted couple and they are clearly loved back, as one hundred and ten people made the trek from Texas to St Maarten for their amazing wedding.
The wedding took place at Villa Les Jardins de Bellevue, on the French side of St Maarten near the capitol, Marigot. The villa is absolutely gorgeous, it sits on top of a hill with 360 views of the island, lagoon, ocean, and nearby islands. With wedding planners and floral designers Nathan and Krisi from Gro Designs in Dallas, Texas, the villa, ceremony, and reception areas were decorated with stunning flowers shipped right from Holland. The reception was amazing. It was all outside with the beautiful views, and the steel drum bands added an island ambiance for the dinner. The popular DJ EM was the DJ for the evening, and the spotlights and music from the night could be heard throughout the island, starting a rumor among the locals that it was Jay-Z and Beyonce partying at the Villa. After the party at the villa, everyone headed to some local bars in downtown Maho and then the casino, where Brittany stayed in her dress the whole time!
