Love online leads to marriage in paradise
New Yorker Jessica Grun met Matt Lender, from Connecticut, online. “It seems to be the way these days,” shared Jessica. And planning a destination wedding online seems to be the way to go for many brides these days as well.
Jessica and Matt decided to have a destination wedding, choosing Aruba as the locale for their special day.
“We chose Aruba for the wonderful weather year round, so it made choosing a wedding date fairly easy, as well as the short flight from New York…also, the availability of on-staff wedding planners at the hotels made it fairly simple to implement".
“As far as details...Corinne coordinated everything; she simply asked for photos of what I wanted and everythingwas executed perfectly”, shared the bride.
“It was very lightweight, with tulle at the bottom, which helped me achieve the beachy/romantic feel I was going for…I also wore a simple headpiece with beads and flowers,” informed the bride. The groom wore a navy suit with a mini-dot tie.
[Final Words from the Bride]
A lot is sort of out of your control. I have to say, everything I asked for was executed perfectly and I was not stressed in the least. It was the perfect wedding day. Aruba will forever be a special place in our heart that we hope to visit regularly.”
