When Conrad and Ashley asked me to photograph their destination wedding, I was thrilled. The couple’s love for one another shows, and even if I wasn’t friends with them, I would be happy to be a part of their big day. Deciding to go against the traditional wedding choice, Conrad and Ashley opted to stand apart from the pack with an awesome destination wedding in Cancun, Mexico.
Whether or not you want to admit it, weddings are a once in a lifetime experience. The highs and lows of your big day will stick with you forever; so make it as memorable (in a good way) as you possibly can. Destination weddings offer you the opportunity to add a little flare to your wedding day. Conrad and Ashley chose a nice sandy beach in Cancun, but there are plenty of amazing backdrops you can choose – lush mountains, tropical beaches, rolling hills, Greece (obviously), Nantucket etc etc..
Five Reasons a Destination Wedding Could Be Your Perfect Choice
1. You Can Say Your Vows Anywhere.
Underwater, in the air, overseas, the only thing that can limit your choice is your imagination.
2. Decorations and Other Features Are Often Included.
From food to decorations, many destinations offer wedding packages to help you save on the overall costs of the wedding.
3. Typically Destinations Weddings Are More Casual.
4. Help Reduce Your Guest List.
Face it, sometimes we just know too many people. When prices can cost per person, this adds up. Destination weddings provide you with an easy out. You can use it as an excuse to only invite a few close personal friends and family, or as a way to invite those you know won’t attend (or don’t want to have attend) without having to offend them.
5. You’re Able to Start Your Honeymoon Sooner.
When you’re already on location, there’s no travel time to reach your honeymoon destination.
