Trevor and I drove to Fort Worth on Tuesday, February 28th and stayed with some friends that night because our flight was out of DFW early on Wednesday morning. We made it to St. Thomas around 4:30 on Wednesday and officially got to our resort around 6.
|Here is the view from our room. :)|
The next morning we slept in (Hallelujah!) and then headed to breakfast and the beach!
|Koozie's for their guests!|
|Oklahoma made the map!!!|
|I could totally get used to this!|
|That evening they had Karaoke on the resort, so of course I had to partake!|
|Even the groomsmen had a good time...Friends in Low Places of course!|
I was super excited when Wes and Katy picked their wedding day because it was a day after my birthday. So, when they told us they were doing a destination wedding, I was really looking forward to spending my birthday in St. Thomas!
|Here is the view I woke up to on my birthday! :)|
|Our view from breakfast|
|We all took turns on this tricycle thing...it's wayyyyy harder than it looks!|
|I'm sure Trevor did most of the work! Thanks babe!!!|
|Wes and Katy on the tricycle|
|I was not a fan of this guy!|
That evening was the rehearsal and rehearsal dinner for Wes and Katy.
|At the rehearsal dinner, Wes and Katy made me feel so special by delivering this delicious dessert to me and singing Happy Birthday! They know the true way to my heart! <3|
I had one of the best birthdays just relaxing on the beach and spending time with family.
March 4th was all about the wedding. We got up, ate breakfast and then Trevor was off with the guys and I was off with the girls. I got to lay out for about an hour before we started getting ready and then it was wedding on the brain.
We had a bridal suite that we got our hair/make-up done and got dressed.
|I loved my hair!!!|
Here are some BEAUTIFUL photos that the photographer took and has already shared!
I'M SO EXCITED TO BE HERE FOR YOU ON YOUR SPECIAL DAY
WHAT'S EVEN BETTER IS, I GET TO CELEBRATE YOU AND KATY ON THE WEEKEND OF MY BIRTHDAY
I'M WES' LITTLE SISTER, FOR THOSE OF YOU THAT DON'T KNOW
IT WAS JUST US TWO AND WE MADE A GREAT COMBO
WES WROTE ME A POEM ON MY BIG DAY
SO I THOUGHT I'D REPAY HIM IN THE SAME WAY
I LOVE THAT GROWING UP I HAD A BIG BROTHER LIKE YOU
WE HAD A LOT OF FUN THROUGHOUT THE YEARS, JUST US TWO
WE OBVIOUSLY HAD OUR BROTHER AND SISTER FIGHTS
BUT FOR THE MOST PART, WE WERE PRETTY NICE
I USED TO COME AND BOTHER WES WHEN HE WAS PLAYING WITH HIS FRIENDS
WHICH WOULD ANNOY HIM BEYOND ALL COMPREHEND
HE WOULD PESTER ME JUST BECAUSE HE KNEW IT MADE ME MAD
BUT, REALLY, I LIKED THE ATTENTION JUST A TAD
IN COLLEGE, I'M SO GLAD THAT YOU WERE AROUND
AT LEAST FOR ONE SEMESTER, TO GET MY FEET ON THE GROUND
I WILL SAY, THAT WAS ONE OF THE BEST YEARS
WE MOVED FROM BEING SIBLINGS TO BEING PEERS
YOU SHOWED ME ALL AROUND OKLAHOMA STATE
WHICH IS NOW A PLACE THAT WE BOTH COMMEMORATE
IT WAS THERE THAT YOU BECAME GOOD FRIENDS WITH TREVOR
EVEN WHEN HIM AND I WEREN'T ON SPEAKING TERMS, HOWEVER
THERE WAS ONE TIME YOU BOTH FOUGHT FOR MY ATTENTION
BUT IT IS A STORY LIKE THIS THAT IS NOT APPROPRIATE TO MENTION
AFTER COLLEGE, IT WAS TULSA AND THEN DC
WHICH IS JUST TOO FAR FROM FAMILY, I THINK WE'D ALL AGREE
BUT THERE YOU MET THE LOVE OF YOUR LIFE
WHICH WE HAD TO WAIT FIVE YEARS FOR YOU TO ASK TO BE YOUR WIFE
IT'S BEEN PROVEN THAT KATY IS MORE OF A "WELLER" THAN WES HAS BEEN
WHICH IS PERFECT BECAUSE THAT MEANS SHE WILL FIT RIGHT IN
WE ARE SO EXCITED FOR YOU AND KATY ON THIS VERY SPECIAL DAY
WE ARE YOUR FAMILY, YOUR FRIENDS AND YOUR SUPPORT ALONG THE WAY
IF THERE IS EVER ANYTHING THAT YOU NEED
YOU CAN ALWAYS CALL US AND WE WILL HELP YOU SUCCEED
WE WISH YOU THE BEST IN THIS EXCITING NEW PHASE
WE LOVE YOU SO MUCH AND WE ARE HERE FOR YOU ALWAYS
You can view my brother's speech here!
The wedding was absolutely BEAUTIFUL and the reception was a blast! Wes and Katy, you know how to throw a great party!
Sunday was our last full day on the island, so we decided to take a ferry over to St. John. We had heard that St. John has some of the best beaches EVER, so we had to check them out. They did NOT disappoint!
We took a cab to Red Hook and then hopped on the ferry at Red Hook. Once we got to St. John we booked a "cab" to take us around the island.
|Looking back to St. Thomas|
|There were horses, donkeys, chickens, iguanas, etc just wandering the streets!|
|Trunk Bay....seriously, one of the most beautiful beaches I have EVER seen! The sand was so fluffy!|
|This is looking back at Trunk Bay|
|We were told this is where Castaway was filmed! So neat!|
When we got back to the resort we showered and Trevor and I had a nice dinner at Lobster Grille which was part of our resort and then had a relaxing evening.
The next morning we had to get packed up and ready to go, so we just ate breakfast and enjoyed a relaxing morning.
|We had a friend outside our door the last day!|
We have officially made it home and are already missing island life just a tad. I was SOOOOOO excited to see Brooks today though! He made coming home a whole lot easier! :)
