Jenny and Bobby are active travelers, so when it came down to choosing a beautiful location for their destination wedding, it made sense for them to make it an exotic one. The couple chose to exchange vows in Rincon, Puerto Rico concocting a destination wedding their guests will remember forever.

The couple figured if their guests were going to travel to their wedding, it mind as well be to a spectacular place. All 50 of the couple's loved ones were ecstatic to travel to the gorgeous country of Puerto Rico to celebrate in Jenny and Bobby's love. Along with Bobby, most of the couple's friends and family have a common hobby in surfing and Rincon is known for its incredible surf.

Since no passport is needed to enter the country, the traveling aspect of the wedding was simplified for everyone. Jenny and Bobby were excited to give their family and friends a mini-vacation all while declaring their love for one another. "The attitude and atmosphere associated with our entire wedding weekend was so unbelievably fun and relaxed," says Jenny. 

On their wedding day, to cool their guests down from the blazing heat, the couple provided coconuts filled with spiked coconut water and fruit popsicles. The seating arrangements were cleverly assigned with baggage tags including a special "thank you" in each one. A map of Puerto Rico was printed on koozies designed by Jenny and Bobby, and on the other side it read "eat, drink and be married".

When it came down to planning their wedding abroad, the couple says the lifesaver was hiring a wedding planner. The couple was able to plan far enough ahead that they were less stressed out and were able to pay wedding bills in increments as the big day approached. Their wedding planner was able to coordinate and plan Jenny and Bobby's destination wedding to a tee and gave the couple everything they asked for.

"Bobby and I did exactly what we wanted," Jenny says. "This made planning the wedding a blast and the day of much more memorable and special because we saw everything we wanted come to life. We had our dream wedding!"
