Finally! Number 10 — MAKE THE WEDDING DAY ALL ABOUT YOU!
It’s been so busy at Weddings in Vieques this week. Several new clients came on board with really big guest lists so I’ve been a busy girl finding venues, accommodations and rental cars to haul all their guests around the island. September is a dead month on Vieques, so it’s hard to reach people. Lots of folks close shop and head off the island for the whole month.

They weren’t calling for it to hit us, but we were inside the Tropical Storm Warning zone so we expected some heavy rain and high winds.
