We went to Aruba this past Thanksgiving and Tim asked me to marry him on the beach the first night we arrived. The moon was shining, the waves were splashing on the beach, we seemed to be the only people out there. Tim pulled the box out of his pocket, it had a little light inside so I could see the ring perfectly, it is so beautiful. He said he loved me and wanted this to be a very special vacation and he asked if I would marry him. It was magical.
back to reality...
We are going to Aruba for a short trip on Thursday Feb 21 to pick the wedding spot, check out the Villas we rented over the internet, and spend some quality time together. We are going to see Bucati, Manchebo and Renaissance for wedding spots. Any other suggestions?
I'll have my laptop while I'm there so I'll keep in touch and let you all know what I find.
The three places that you're interested in are all great.
Bucuti and Manchebo, especially Manchebo is a vast piece of beach.
Renaissance is a private island with it's own beach as I might already know so by the end of your ceremony you should have the island all to yourself, if you're having a reception.
I've shot at both locations and they're all great.
If you have any other questions please let me know.
