Welcome to Destination Wedding Photographers
What are Destination Weddings?
There are so many different definitions, of what is or isn’t a destination wedding. Destinationweddingmag.com defines a destination wedding as having to be more than 100 miles from the bride. That seems a little silly and arbitrary to us. We like the wikipedia and Reuters definition much better.
“Not to be confused with an elopement, a destination wedding is one in which a wedding is hosted, often in a vacation-like setting, at a location to which most of the invited guests must travel and often stay for several days. This could be a beach ceremony in the tropics, a lavish event in a metropolitan resort, or a simple ceremony at the home of a geographically distant friend or relative… ”
Some of the key aspects are that you are planning a wedding for a location where you do not live. A nice general rule of thumb is that you are taking a plane to get there, or that it wouldn’t be unreasonable to take a plane to your wedding location.
What makes Destination Weddings so great?
Imagine your absolute paradise. Is it sipping fruity drinks on the beach in Mexico? Or listening to big surf-able waves crash over the sounds of a luau in Maui, Hawaii? Maybe, you want to be secluded in the mountains of Colorado? Or in a rain forest in Costa Rica or Puerto Rico?
Wherever your personal paradise is, about the only thing that can make it better is best celebration of your life with your favorite person in the whole world.
