WooHoo, We’re getting Hitched!

St Augustine Beach Wedding

We have some exciting news to share (drum roll please)…

We’re getting married!

On Sunday Bob asked me to marry him! We’ve been dating for a long time and now we are makin’ it official.

When we tell people, the first two questions everyone asks are:

  1. Have you set a date?
  2. Where are you going on your honeymoon?
As for the first question- we have no idea! Different months seem out because of already existing holidays or birthdays and other months just seem way too soon. Like most girls, I have pictured what my wedding day would look like, but as a frequent traveler and travel blogger- I feel like the pressure is on to pick an all out awesome location and honeymoon. With the world at our finger tips and friends located everywhere, there isn’t one place that jumps out as THE place we should get married. And, as for the second question- the possibilities get me super excited!

To get me excited and share some of the destination weddings that I love from all over the world-

here are a few photos where the location makes me swoon.

                          { A South African Fishing Wedding }

{ An Iceland Waterfall Wedding (We went to this waterfall on our RTW trip!) }

{ An Australian Beach Wedding }


{ A St. Augustine Beach Wedding }

{ Big Sur Point 16 Wedding }

Also- for a little fun… I’m pretty sure my life would be complete if this happened during our ceremony!

Any tips for planning a wedding? Has anyone ever planned a destination wedding? What was most important to you on your wedding day?

    PHOTOGRAPHY! We spent the highest percentage of our budget on photos, and I’m SO glad we did. We went modest on flowers and then skipped on things like a videographer (and had my best friend be the officiant) to save money in other areas.

    Congratulations to you and Bob. I’m sure no matter where you get married it will be beautiful wedding, but I must admit I think the Iceland Waterfall Wedding would be pretty spectacular and unique.

    Having just returned from Maui, and knowing some friends who got married there…I would seriously look into it! Congrats to both of you!

    Congrats to you two! I’ve been wondering about a proposal since you mentioned getting married by year’s end in a post not too long ago :-)

    We’ve only made a few big decisions so far but we’ve LOVED the brainstorming. Some advice a few gals gave me immediately has been my favorite — enjoy the process and ENJOY this period of being engaged before serious wedding planning gets underway.

    My two spending priorities are food and photography and my main goal is for it to be a FUN day for everyone. We’ll actually be married by the time we have our “big” ceremony next year for all of our friends and family.

    Lots of love to you!

    Congratz on getting married!

    My wife and I got married in New Zealand at the Aoraki/Mount Cook NP (we’re both from Belgium) and we had an awesome wedding planner that made sure we were well taken care of. I’d be happy to tell you about her.

    Congratulations, I am so happy for you both!

    I’ve not been great about keeping up with my new friends TBEX in Vancouner. Stopping this morning, this post lept out at me. Big time.

    Major congrats you two! Looking forward to seeing how the wedding and, especially, the honeymoon plan shapes up.

    Wowie! Congratulations to you! Loved all the amazing photos of wedding spots you are inspired by. I am in LOVE with Big Sur, and have been camping, diving, kayaking, jade hunting etc there for many years. If you end up planning your Big Day there, I may be able to offer some valuable “local knowledge” about the area.

    FYI – I’m also a pro photographer & would be happy to share some pics of the area’s best spots for exploring. Best wishes to both of you!
