Beautiful Beach Weddings

Experience Multiple Cultures
One of the more unique things about the island of St. Martin is that it is split in half by two different countries, and thus displays two very distinct cultures.

Known as “The Friendly Island” ever since the French and Dutch signed the Treaty of Concordia in 1648, this special place still operates with an air of amiable openness.

While staying in St. Martin for your destination wedding, be sure to venture off of your resort to see all that this amazing island has to offer. There’s Philipsburg, the capital of the Dutch side of St. Maarten where you can marvel at Dutch architecture and visit its mile-long commercial district. Also, you can visit Marigot, the capital of the French side of the island in St. Martin, with its brightly colored houses and amazing restaurants.
