Destination Wedding Ideas

This past weekend, we had a beautiful destination beach wedding planned. Unfortunately, we got a huge rain storm come through and we had to completely change the plan last minute. We moved the ceremony to an indoor area above the restaurant that is used as our yoga studio. It wasn’t what the couple had planned on, but we transformed the space into a beautiful ceremony. What resulted was a new destination wedding opportunity to offer to our guests.

Our whole team worked hard to clean and transform this space. We now have a beautiful new ceremony location option, which is especially helpful during our rainy season. We are excited to expand our destination wedding ideas!
