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.

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.

No need for mulling over destinations for their wedding—Aruba was inevitably meant to be. “Aruba was not only our first vacation as a couple, but a place we both visited as children…additionally, both his parents and mine went to Aruba on their honeymoon…its been a meaningful place in our lives and seemed the perfect choice,” the bride said.
