Mariet Hulsebos and Dan Plaistow journeyed all the way from the United Kingdom to Aruba to have a low-key destination wedding. Mariet has Dutch nationality, so she already knew a lot about Aruba,” shared the groom,  “and it just looked like an absolutely fantastic, sunny place.

After the ceremony, local wedding photographer Johnny Zimmerman took the couple to
 their host resort, Amsterdam Manor, and the adjacent pristine shores of Eagle Beach in front of the island’s famous divi trees for a breathtaking sunset photo shoot followed by a romantic dinner for two on the beach.  

When asked about their overall wedding experience on Aruba, the couple enthused that they
“would do it all over again!”

What our brides are saying

My dad’s favorite ‘paradise’ was always Aruba. Choosing Aruba as the locale for our nuptials was a special way to honor his memory and share this day with him.
