Jennifer and Michael were looking for an exotic getaway while planning their destination wedding. After researching islands that would be appropriate for such an affair, the couple decided on Antigua. This beautiful, Caribbean island was perfect for hosting their intimate, stylish, beachside wedding.
The couple knew they wanted to make their day as meaningful and special as possible so they invited a select few of their closest family and friends to travel to the beautiful island. They provided guest with welcome bags filled with treats including a thank you note and a travel candle. The couple also provided guests with parasols and fans to keep them cool at the ceremony.
Overall, the entire event turned out beautifully. It was an unforgettable experience the couple will cherish forever. “There is something about the view of the Caribbean Sea during your reception that cannot be replaced. There was a beautiful energy from the island and the people that you can’t put into words,” explains the bride.
