The luck of rainbows for a lifetime union
Shane and Ginny Clark could not have imaged what was in store when they made the decision for a destination wedding in an island known as the ‘Helen of the West.’ No amount of research online or going through brochures could have given them the slightest clue of the incredible experiences the island treasure that is Saint Lucia would hold.
The couple from Washington, USA, found themselves in Saint Lucia on a mission to exchange their wedding vows on an exotic, tropical island. They’d chosen just the right location and their wedding day found them on quite the appropriate beachside location, with the Caribbean sun kissing their skin ever so gently, and the waves rolling seductively across the shoreline.
If there ever was a truly perfect moment, this was it and Shane smiled at his new wife while giving Tropical Traveller a brief insight on their story.
“We worked really hard to get together,” Shane revealed. “We both came from poor families, but we finished college and started our lives together. Now we both work in the medical field.”
Ginny and Shane met eight years ago at a friend’s birthday party, and vivacious Ginny remembers the way Shane pursued her. They went out on their first official date soon after they first met and sealed the deal with a romantic parking lot kiss at the end of the night.
“It was about a week after we’d first met that we saw each other again,” Shane told TT. “We dated for a long time, then eventually moved in together.”
When asked how’d they found out about Saint Lucia and why they’d chosen the island for their destination wedding, Ginny responded: “We were looking for somewhere tropical, somewhere we’d never been before so we looked online and found Saint Lucia. After we’d planned it people started telling us how lovely Saint Lucia was, and it really is.”
“It’s a once in a lifetime kind of thing,” Shane added. “I think the people are very friendly, always laughing, joking and they are happy. It’s really kind of refreshing to get away from the hustle and bustle. Here you get to relax and it seems like everyone else is relaxed along with you . . . ”
“Everyone is really nice at the resort,” Ginny continued where her husband left off. “We’re staying at Sandals and we have a butler so we don’t have to do much. I don’t know when we’ll be back . . . maybe for our anniversary!”
Soon after the couple exchanged those significant vows which to love and live together for a lifetime, Shane literally swept Ginny her off her feet, and a lucky rainbow appeared in the backdrop, just to add to their exquisite moment. Setting a beaming Ginny onto the sand, Shane brushed his fingers through her hair, which had been adorned with a purple flower in true tropical fashion, leaving memories that will never be erased of their romantic wedding on an island called Saint Lucia, the Helen of the West Indies!
A rainbow for the Clarks.
That look says it all!
