By far our favorite place on the planet! We just shot there a few months ago and plan to go back next year for another Wedding. Hopefully more!

Thing about it is, its not just the water, but the whole vibe and the peacefulness of the beach.

Thailand RULES.

Next favorite place was a little place South of Puerto Vallarta called El Careyes. We shot a Wedding at the El Carese resort which is a Starwood property and simply AMAZING. They have a private cove which was freakin amazing!

Tons of faves but those 2 spring to mind.

cheers,

Gino and Heather

haha...indeed we should not!

The Thailand ones should be up soon, the El Careyes ones are up on our Blog as well as on our site. Apologies for this layout looking a bit dark the collage software I used for this causes that.

The pic from Thailand should be up on our blog next week hopefully. Destination Wedding Photographer-Story by Photo

Bahamas is nice, we love Diving there usually but when we go there for Weddings it always seems that the clients end up getting married on the "less than nice" beach areas, where the waves are often too rough to really do much in the water. Like at the Atlantis, we found their beach to be highly unusable. At least the entire week we were there.

Pretty to look at but nothing but warning signs about entering the water.

The one and only club just up the beach has a much nicer beach area but same situation with the water.

Of course this is all Nassau/Paradise island. If you head to the out islands you truly have some of the most remote and gorgeous tiny islands in the Carribean, bar none. To us, thats where its at!

I went to a little Carribean island, Coco Cay, on a Royal Carribean Bahamas cruise last year - LOOOVED it! The sand and water were like something out off a postcard, as are most of the pics posted in this thread! I am honestly amazed that places like this REALLY exist!

 

In planning my DW an awesome beach and water are really really important to me, so when I was thinking of Mexico my mom suggested the Carribean side so that maybe we could see that amazing water and sand again! I've never been to Mexico before so does anyone know how Mexico (Carribean side) and the Carribean (i.e. Bahamas) compare in terms of sand and water?

Playa Minitas in the Dominican Republic.

 

It's a private beach with the most insanely crystal blue water ever. Like a movie. I remember looking both ways, hearing ocean waves, and not seeing anyone for miles. The memory always makes me nostalgic. Sigh.

Well. We just got back from the Virgin Islands for 1 week. Had a good time. The nicest beach we saw was Trunk Bay and Cinnamon Beach. Both amazing and both on St. John.

 

Only thing that we did NOT care for were the locals. Kinda shady characters and definately not the most friendly. Moreso in St. Thomas than in St. John but overall our feeling was that we wont go back.

 

Great beaches is one thing but we enjoy spending time with locals and taking in the cultures. These local left alot to be desired. Not only in our opinion but in the opinions of all the people we were there with.

...pardon me for interrupting, I never heard of "cinnamon beach", that truly is a beautiful name for a beach. Good for you!

    • Good afternoon, I wanted to inquire if anyone has or knows someone who got married at this resort. How was it? How are the coordinators? Packages that were chosen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks.
    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
