Jessica + Thomas | May 8, 2012 | Peter Island, British Virgin Islands

The Ceremony
There are some places on earth that simply must be experienced to fully understand. Peter Island is one of those places. While words and images can stir the imagination, you will never know the true magic of this private island paradise until you feel it beneath your feet. This true island paradise provided the perfect backdrop and venue for our intimate wedding ceremony. We started our wedding day with morning snorkeling at the mouth of the Bight near Norman Island. Then we sailed to Peter Island to prepare for our late afternoon nuptials. With only two friends by our side, we were married by Reverend Myron Stevens in the Coconut Grove overlooking the beach and Deadman’s Bay.

The Reception
Immediately following the ceremony, we were presented with our marriage certificate and posed for pictures on the beach with the sun setting in the background. After sharing a bottle of champagne with our friends and a few phone calls to immediate family, we enjoyed a private dinner on the beach. The next day, we rejoined our friends on our sailboat to continue island hopping throughout the British Virgin Islands.

Jessica’s Dress Search
I always pictured myself wearing an ivory, lace dress with minimal details on my wedding day. The Romona Keveza dress fit this vision perfectly. The beaded belt was a bit of a surprise but added the right amount of detail to my gown and was complete perfection against the ivory lace.

How Jessica Felt in Her Wedding Dress
Timeless, Romantic, Beautiful

Why Jessica Decided to Sell Her Wedding Dress
I only wore the dress for 2-3 hours for our destination wedding including ceremony and dinner. The dress is practically brand new; it is immaculate with no stains, rips or tears.
With the exception of our wedding video and photos, very few have seen me in this dress. It would be a shame if this dress were not worn again, especially considering its like new condition. A remarkable value for any bride-to-be!
