Real weddings

Beach brides Erin and Amanda chose Aruba as the locale for their destination wedding. The wedding was set for October (hurricane season) when Amanda, a school teacher, had a few days off during a fall school break, so weather was a major factor in determining which Caribbean island they would travel to. As an LGBTQ+ couple, safety was another major concern, and Erin’s past trips to Aruba gave her the reassurance that all their guests would feel safe, accepted, and welcome on Aruba. Erin and Amanda capitalized on the natural beauty of their ceremony and reception setting on the stunning shores of Eagle Beach (one of TripAdvisor’s top beaches in the world), at Divi Aruba’s Sandpiper beach bar and event venue.

Ghislaine and Diederik chose the casually sophisticated environs of Tierra del Sol’s clubhouse as the site of both the ceremony and reception. “We chose Tierra del Sol because we know our choices would be delivered to our standard—from the delicious food to the service—and the location is beautiful on its own,” shared the bride. The ceremony was set on the grassy knoll at the rear of the clubhouse that offers sweeping vistas of the coastline. “The sunset ceremony view created that romantic and classic mood that we were both looking for,” informed Ghislaine.
