“I only saw Emmanuel in school…he was a very quiet young fella and I was the more talkative and outgoing person,” explained Djuna. The two didn't keep in touch after graduating high school in 2000, but through social media, reconnected in 2006. “It wasn't until the launch of Facebook several years later where we just made a simple friend connection, but we never established a consistent line of communication between one another,” informed Djuna. However, in 2013 they stumbled on each other’s profile on a dating website, exchanged numbers, and eventually went on a date.

In numerology, the number six represents harmony. Pythagoreans credit the number six as the first “perfect” number. So what better date for bride Lauren and groom James to choose for their wedding than six years to the day that they had their first date? And what better place to have the wedding than in paradise?

When Raquel Alphonse and Ted Drougas decided to tie the knot, the bride-to-be knew she wanted a destination wedding. “My dad’s favorite ‘paradise’ was always Aruba,“ shares the bride. Sadly, Raquel’s father passed away two years ago, but choosing Aruba as the locale for her nuptials was a special way to honor his memory and share this day with him.

I first met Ashley and Nick this past February when they were on the island for round two of planning their dream destination wedding in Aruba, confirming details and signing agreements with their chosen vendors in anticipation of their June 3rd nuptials. Engaged in April of 2015, the couple gave themselves a little over a year to plan the wedding that was perfectly designed just for them. And these two definitely know how to plan a wedding—they are both event planners for Personal Touch Experience, a top catering, event, and wedding company servicing New York and New Jersey.

Many of us played the game of kickball as kids—you knew when the streetlights came on it was time to go home. The nostalgia of the game has led to a resurgence of the game for adults—after all aren’t we all still kids at heart? Fort Worth, Texas couple Yolanda and Jared met in an adult league that provided a casual, fun environment to hang out with friends and meet new ones, too. Although meeting while on opposing teams, the couple’s chemistry blended the two teams together, and love blossomed.

Maria and James Forgione were recently wed on the shores of Palm Beach. The bride wanted every detail to ooze romance, choosing a simple, elegant color palate of white and champagne, which was carried out from the ceremony to the décor at the reception and ballroom dinner.
