Destination weddings give you the chance to escape to an amazing location to spend quality time with your loved ones, they are perfect for couples who prefer a smaller, more intimate ceremony and celebration. Not just a wedding, its also a vacation! Destination weddings are anywhere that you are traveling a distance greater than a two hours drive from your home, that require an overnight stay.
Depending on the location you choose for your destination wedding, chances are the sunshine and warm weather will outweigh the cold and gloomy ones. Consider the hurricane and rainy seasons when you plan, but overall, if you enjoy the sun and warmth, having your wedding in the Caribbean is a fabulous choice. European destination weddings are also amazing any time of year, but not always as warm, however if you are desiring delicious food and epic landscapes and buildings, a wedding in Rome or Paris might be just the place for you!
One of the most important factors a couple should consider when hiring their destination wedding photographer is personality. This is true for both local, destination weddings, and elopements. You will want a photographer that you are comfortable with being around all day, and possibly longer if you plan to have multiple photo sessions! Many resorts offer "in house" wedding photography, but often they are working with limited hours that are included in their package, and don't include "all" of your edited images, making it more costly when you are purchasing them. Look for someone who has good communication and is quick to respond to you, after all, this is YOUR big day, and you want all of your details to be captured. A good photographer will have a solid plan for that, and make sure you have a beautiful gallery full of all your amazing memories that will last for years to come, so you can relive your amazing wedding experience.
