All aboard! Jillian from 100 Layer Cake, Leila from Inspired by This, Jen from Green Wedding Shoes, Summer from Grey Likes Weddings, and our lovely photographer Jen Huang (along with all of our men) jumped onboard a boat for quick ride from Anguilla to enjoy the second part of the trip on the incredible island of St Barths.
I little insight into my love of these two islands starts with how they both offer such different experiences despite being so close to one another. Anguilla is super laid back and slow moving, with funky beach bars serving rum punch cocktails, and steel drum music. Arrive at St Barths for an incredibly European feel with beautiful architecture, amazing restaurants, a cute town, and exciting nightlife.
Our home during our time in St Barths was Hotel Le Toiny, my absolute favorite hotel in St Barths! This hotel features 15 private villas, each with a private pool and ocean views! It’s located in a really private and secluded area of the island, but still just a short drive to the incredible beaches, shops, and restaurants on the island. And one of my favorite things about this hotel is the amazing breakfast each morning, which you can choose to enjoy in your villa or to have in their restaurant.
We had so much fun during our time in St Barths! The first night we headed over to Hotel Carl Gustaf at Victoria’s Restaurant for an unbelievable three-course wine pairing dinner. The restaurant hosts gorgeous views of the main town in St Barths called Gustavia. Oh my goodness their salted carmel dessert was just heavenly!
The following evening we had drinks and appetizers at On The Rocks at Hotel Eden Rock which we loved! It was a perfect evening with great company, and the most amazing food! I would highly recommend having dinner there one evening while in St Barths!
The next day we headed over to Gouveneur Beach. Hotel Le Toiny provided towels, beach chairs, umbrellas, snorkeling equipment, and a picnic lunch. This was not your average beach picnic – we were blown away by the most incredible lunch spread! Yum!

Needless to say this trip was a complete success and we all had an unforgettable time. If you haven’t had chance to check out our time in Anguilla you definitely need to. I would also recommend perusing all the ladies blogs as well, they did a beautiful job capturing the trip!
