Orlando Wedding Venues: The Hidden Gems

I did my fair share of research on wedding venues in Central Florida back when I was planning our wedding and have attended over a dozen weddings in the Orlando area. Some of these venues are fairly new and some have been around for a long time.

Tobago Love: A Tropical Wedding

This is a not a wedding guide of any sort.  It's more like a mini gallery since the professional photos from my girl friend's wedding back in February just became available. It was also the most gorgeous wedding I've attended so I thought the details shown in the photos could be helpful to future brides out there looking for ideas and inspiration. 

The venue was in the backyard of an oceanfront villa that sits on the coast of Tobago in the southern Caribbean.  Tobago is the sister island of Trinidad where I grew up and a lot of my family and friends still live there.

Multiway Bridesmaid dresses: In One Clothing

The bride gifted her girls with these cute kimono robes from Etsy along with some gorgeous angel wing earrings made with white bone and shiny tattoo jewelry.



The sand ceremony included sand from Denmark (groom) and Trinidad (bride).


Breathless Punta Cana, Dominican Republic

The Dominican Republic is one of the most beautiful countries ~ if not THE most beautiful country ~ I've visited yet. Our trip to Punta Cana was amazing - the beaches, the resort, the food, the weather and the people. It was magnificent, or as they say magnifico!

We stayed at Breathless Resorts & Spa, which is an adults-only, all-inclusive resort. It just opened in November 2013 so it's a brand new resort that's perfect for a destination wedding, honeymoon or just a vacation in paradise.

The Food

The Wedding 

The reason we went to the DR was to celebrate the marriage of two friends and I have to say the ceremony and reception was absolutely gorgeous! I've been to destination weddings in Jamaica, Florida and several different tropical spots but this was by far the most beautiful wedding I've attended yet.

Entertainment & Fun

Our Excursion

We went on the Marinarium catamaran cruise which took us around the coast of Punta Cana and stopped at an area where we snorkeled around the reef and swam with stingrays and nurse sharks. They fed us lunch and tropical cocktails on the cruise and the crew entertained everyone with dancing and singing to local music. We had a blast! 


What I would give to be back there right now!
