Becca & Garrath’s Destination Wedding: A night to remember
“A night to remember” was Garrath’s only request when we first met to start planning their destination wedding in La Paz.
We had only 3 months to plan an amazing wedding weekend that everyone would talk about for years to come. And, how did we do it? By designing a heart breaking romantinc ceremony, followed by photos and margarita ice cream on the beach, and an amazing party no one will ever forget!
Becca & Garrath said they wanted their wedding to be a beautiful and romantic moment. Followed by a lot of fun with the people they treasured the most.
Having friends and family coming from different places in the world, made them a little nervous. So, they made a wise decision. and they turned a traditional wedding into a fabulous, intimate destination wedding weekend!
