This Gorgeous Aruba Destination Wedding is Everything You Want the Caribbean To Be!

Aruba! You know we rarely see fit to leave San Diego to wed but this San Diego couple's Caribbean wedding is so beautiful we get! Rebecca and Mario who are a couple from San Diego wanted a romantic getaway wedding in Aruba. Their wedding ceremony was held at the Ritz-Carlton Aruba at the gorgeous Palm Beach. Then the celebration continued at the awesome House of Mosaic where they danced the night away with their family and friends. They even had a shoe valet so you could walk barefoot on the beach and a sparkler photo ending!

#thedurandisseswedinparadise Congratulations Rebecca and Mario!

Aloha means Love and Hello! Say Hello to this Beautiful Hawaiian Destination Wedding on the Beach at Maui

You know our hearts are always in San Diego! But sometimes you got to get away and this sweet and intimate wedding captures the best part of a destination wedding; toes in the sand, gorgeous tropical flowers, endless horizons and lots of Aloha! We think it's a wonderful mix of glamour and boho... we hope you like it too! Surrounded by their loved ones from Illinois, Brianna and David couldn't have been more excited to celebrate their love by the dancing sea. While their adorable son looked on with fascination, his mom and dad declared the love every one knew was already in their hearts. Between his stunning bride's vintage glamour, and her dashing groom's charming smile, they made a gorgeous pair as the sun sank towards the horizon. Wailea's Polo Beach provided an amazing location for their Maui Beach Wedding with its swaying palms, lush greenery, golden sand. It was a magnificent night and all were thrilled to be a part of it.

Italian Dream Destination Wedding Becomes a Reality

Italian Dream Destination Wedding Becomes a Reality!

Spring has sprung! Flowers are blooming; birds are chirping; and temperatures are rising. With the perfect Southern California weather in full force, we find ourselves daydreaming and wanting to fill that wanderlust that Spring can bring! Now, after seeing Sharlene and Craig's picturesque Italian dream wedding photos, we are itching to travel to where this story takes place: Florence, Italy. When asked what she would change, Sharlene said that she wouldn't change a thing. After browsing through the gallery, we couldn't agree more. 

Sharlene and Craig had been dating for 8 years when Craig took a knee in their favorite city on the Santa Trinita bridge with the sun setting over the Arno River. The story could end there and still be striking. However, that wouldn't be all of it. Nine months before their planned wedding in Melbourne, Australia (Craig and Sharlene's hometown) both of Sharlene's grandparents passed away. With such devastating events weighing heavily on Sharlene's heart, the couple decided to rethink what was important to them and how they truly envisioned their perfect day to be. All previous plans were scratched, and the couple had 40 of their closest friends and family travel from Melbourne to Florence to share with them the most magnificent wedding the two could imagine.
