Soufriere, St. Lucia is exotic, romantic and luxurious… Perfect for any destination wedding.
In June, Gabi and I had the opportunity to plan and style an 80+ guest rehearsal dinner at Anse Chastanet’s private beach, Anse Mamin and a fabulous beachfront wedding at Jalousie Plantation.
Soufriere, is located on the southwest part of the island. Castries (north) is generally where most people tend go as its more commercialized and where cruise ships dock.
We found that properties like Anse Chastanet/Jade Mountain and Jalousie Plantation cater to more of the higher-end bespoke weddings. For the wedding we planned this past June we were able to design every detail of the rehearsal dinner & wedding day with the help of the resorts and local wedding/event professionals.
In Soufriere, you can have the most luxurious wedding of your dreams. From a castaway rehearsal dinner, where all of your guests arrive to a private beach by boat, to a gorgeous wedding ceremony & reception with the spectacular Piton’s in the background.
All in the details…
The rehearsal dinner was set upon Anse Chastanet’s private beach called Anse Mamin, which was only accessible by boat. Anse Chastanet provided transportation for all 80+guests. Décor was down played to allow the natural St. Lucian surroundings to be the backdrop of the “castaway” theme. We worked directly with Anse Chastanet to create a custom, rustic menu, and to coordinate all of the details. The location truly made this dinner spectacular… No one wanted to leave!!!!
The wedding at Jalousie Plantation was unlike any other. Much to my surprise during our site visit, we met with Executive Chef, Cupertino Ortiz, who was the former Executive Chef at the Tides Riviera Maya. Needless to say the food was unbelievable with surroundings to match perfectly! The couple wanted a beachfront wedding, therefore a beachfront wedding they had! We assembled our own design team using local vendors such as floral and décor, photography, etc. Because Jalousie isn’t an all inclusive “package” style resort we were able to customize every detail for the couple… We even had their table linens custom made in St. Lucia, ordered a delightful red velvet wedding cake, coordinated a massive private firework display as a surprise thank you for their guests at the end of dinner.
All in all the couple had the wedding of their dreams, their guests were blown away, and we got to experience a side of St. Lucia that most people don’t know about. We highly recommend Soufriere, St. Lucia, as a destination wedding haute spot.
