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 top on my list at this point, but I will let you know when I get back from Barbados from my vacation.

 

Morgan, I will have a lot of photos when I get back and you are welcome to use them

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!

    • Dental care would be very challenging when you are invited to a wedding. Everyone needs a clean and white teeth. I was also looking for a dental clinic in Toronto but all of the Doctor were busy. This was when I found Walk in Dental Clinic in Yonge Street just south of Steels. Since they were open until midnight, I did not have to leave my work early to get to my dentist. This dental clinic used dental veneers for my teeth and at the wedding everyone was asking me how I created my smile very nice.  The fact that they accept emergency patients for dental care is also very good. before the wedding, I recommend using this dentistry. If you need emergency dental care in Toronto visit Dr Karimi and Walk in dental clinic for their great patient care and service. 
    • I'm so sorry to hear this  Did you have a signed contract with him? What did he or the contract say the turn around time be? If it is way past the deadline, you have made several documented attempts to contact him, and he has broken your contract and failed to produce what has been promised, you could resort to writing an online review of your experience -- often times, that motivates vendors who've dropped the ball to rectify the situation because it affects other potential clients. 
    • STAY AWAY FROM CARIBBEAN EMOTIONS PHOTOGRAPHY!!!! Michael Weiler is a SCAMMER he took our money and disappeared!! we hired him as our photographer for our wedding back in November, he gave us a run around for the first week or 2 saying our pictures are almost ready and then disappeared. we have been sending him emails, texts and phone calls for the past 4 months and he is now where to be found. I made a fake account to email him and he answered right away as he is only interested in taking peoples money and not give anything in return.
    • For weddings you should definitely use a travel agent as there are promotions and amenities with a group block that you will not get by booking individually like comped rooms, upgrades, spa treatments, etc.
    • Congratulations and welcome to the forum! There are lots of great resort options in Punta Cana and we have stayed at or toured many of them.  Are you looking for a family friendly resort or adults only?  What you interested in with nature and the ceremony? All of the resorts will have different wedding locations and there are also a variety of off resort wedding venues in Punta Cana. Please feel free to email us at info@wrighttravelagency.com if you'd like us to send resort info and check group rates. Thanks! Patty
