Anyone can get married on a beach...but how many have the opportunity to tie the knot in an authentic 17th century pirate's castle--one that just might be haunted by the former owner? To make it even more special, Bluebeard's Castle is located atop a bluff, overlooking the harbor and the dramatic red roofs of St. Thomas' capital city of Charlotte Amalie.
After the ceremony, you can stay in the original castle, in the adjacent former Danish governor's mansion, or in one of the several villas scattered around the property. Amenities include an outdoor pool with a view of the city below, a romantic dining room and lounge, and acres of gardens. The resort is just minutes from town (and duty-free shopping) as well as championship golf at Mahogany Run and some of the best beaches in the Caribbean.
St. Thomas Weddings are easy to plan, since the island is just a short flight from Miami or New York City and as the island is a US territory, you don't have to worry about a passport or visa. Enlisting the aid of a destination wedding consultant, such as Destination Weddings.com, can make planning your St. Thomas wedding easy and stress-free. Few such consultants charge a fee; they're compensated by the resorts and services they recommend.
