    Eden Rock wedding

    David’s at Santa Fe gave us a few hints on the wedding tonight. Started at 8:00 pm because they had to start after sunset. As we drove by from dinner, it was just beginning and there was a crowd on the street watching. The manager of Eden Rock brought us some water and asked it we wanted to come in and watch. They had been working on it all week. Anyway, we learned it was $8million for the wedding. Eden rock, plus party for 350 at Tamarin and all day at Gypsy Beach. And Adele is performing tonight

    I have to observe that it seems unconscionably indiscreet of the “manager” to have shared such details of a private event. If I were David Matthews — with his wife, “owners” of Eden Rock — I would be angry about such a break of confidentiality.

    he was very very gracious. Treated us like the peasants that wait in the blazing sun to see the queen. And I’m ok with that. My jaw dropped to the ground when he said come in. I said “Are you kidding?”

    Very funny. I'm sure there were a few jokes among the guests since the red thread of Adele's new album is divorce.

    Re: Eden Rock wedding

    I'm a little confused...since Adele was in L.A. last night filming for her special, doesn't it seem rather difficult to be in two places at once? https://www.latimes.com/entertainmen...eo-cbs-special

    Reading the thread, I think one was the 23rd and the other was the 24th?

    My money is on a helicopter immediately after the “show” thence to a G550 waiting at SXM. CBP comes to the plane for passport/vaxx checks at LAX.

    The party went all night and the after party started at 6:30 am. We left around 9:30 pm and the ceremony was just wrapping up. So if there was a “show it would have been around midnight

    Another wedding at Eden Rock today. I assume that is the reason for the fireworks tonight

    The phrase “a bit much of muchness” comes to mind.

    Is there a better dinner setting in St Barth than Eden Roc ?

    Re: Eden Rock wedding

    Honestly, that is not that unusual for weddings or vow renewals around here in California, where the orchids are plentiful, compared to the rest of the country. Some people bring their planners in from Mexico, as they can do spectacular settings, since it is so close and they can bring in flowers, chairs, decorations in from orchid farms and suppliers so it is less costly. It seems like they wanted to make it more wedding-like and less hotel-like. A lot of people will wrap the tent poles if you have a tent, with huge strings of white orchids to cover up the tent poles, too. It can be very pretty!

    My thoughts exactly!!! And I have unfortunately seen throughout the years an inverse relationship between the extravagance of the wedding and the ultimate happiness of the married couple But to each their own . . .

    I'm probably just a "back number" . . . perhaps why I'm not embracing the St. Tropez-ization of the island. Very candidly, the opulence and extravagance of such displays -- only the tip of the iceberg, I suspect -- are offensive, IMO. Nonetheless, I accept that there are people in the world who think that "more is better."

    Well, just speaking for myself, my wedding had 24 people in the middle of winter and we've been married 45 years..those numbers are pretty telling!
