Destination I Do

If you haven’t heard by now, blue is my favorite color, the ocean is my favorite place, and serenity is my absolute favorite thing!  That’s one of the reasons why I love to see destination weddings on the beach or near the ocean, as it encompasses all the things that speak to me. 

Destination weddings allow couples to plan a wedding and honeymoon simultaneously and their guests get the opportunity to plan a mini vacation.  Many times guests are traveling from long distances or haven’t seen the couple for a long time and a destination wedding has given the opportunity for additional bonding and celebrating the joys of the event.
