St Kitts – Laid-back Luxury…

This lush tropical island is sure to charm even the most jaded world traveler. Couples will be greeted by friendly locals or “kittitians” thrilled to share their rich heritage and local paradise with you.

In addition to beach and resort wedding venues, an interesting site to say your “I Do’s” is the Brimstone Hill Fortress – a 17th century British outpost with spectacular views of the Caribbean Sea and neighboring islands. Several old sugar plantations have also been restored to provide unique and history-steeped wedding venues.
