What was your favorite memory from your destination wedding?

“Our favorite memory was spending time with all of our family and friends for a few days. It was really nice to hang out with everyone all day at the pools, beach, and dinner every night. It also took a lot of pressure off of us having to make our rounds and making sure we chat with everyone at the reception since we’d spent days with them before the big day! It really allowed us to focus on having a great time at our reception, which was amazing!”

Describe your wedding style:

“Our wedding style can be described as classic, yet chic. We really wanted the focus of our ceremony to be the gorgeous background featuring the beautiful wooden deck with the bright blue ocean featured behind it, so we went light on the outdoor decor. We chose white linens to be hung at the alter, as well as white fabric chairs with alternating coral and mint folding paper fans placed on each chair.”

Describe your favorite detail of your wedding:

“The absolute favorite detail of our wedding was the location of the ceremony. It was located at the corner of the resort in a quiet, secluded area on a beautiful two-tier wooden deck featuring a palapa-style alter. The white sands and blue ocean played as a gorgeous backdrop. It was absolutely breath-taking and couldn’t have been more beautiful.”

“Modern Destination Weddings was heaven-sent!  The whole process was so easy not only for us, but for our guests! It took so much stress off of us, and the two staff members we worked with (Rhonda and Chris) were both so helpful, easy to work with, and quick to respond to emails and phone calls. The whole process of finding the perfect location and booking the resort and flights was simple and amazing, and we are so blessed and thankful to have worked with this amazing company”
