Howard and Autumn hosted their friends and family in a Chinese-inspired wedding that combined aspects of both Howard’s Chinese traditions and Autumn’s North Carolina charm.

Their dreamy day was set with the beautiful Caribbean sea in the backdrop at both the ceremony location and the reception towering atop one of the eastern hills.

Their week-long celebration also featured a fun Fourth of July pool party, complete with Reggae Band, at one of the 5 villas they rented and a casual welcome party at the Beach House. The group also snorkeled at Buck Island and toured both the Captain Morgan & Cruzan Rum Distilleries.

 

Autumn chose warm reds & oranges for her flowers that represented both the Caribbean sunset
& the Chinese colors of good fortune.
