Our wedding video!👰🏾🛫💍

I was lucky enough to experience the MAGIC 
of a destination wedding ...


...I call it, "The Wedding that Changed it All" because I had never seen a celebration so vibrant and filled with love. Traditional weddings never appealed to me. Being a "+1" to a destination wedding opened my eyes to a completely different experience, so when it was time for me to decide how to have my own wedding, it was a no-brainer: Desti was the way to go. Only, we had no idea how to make it happen. So I gathered as much information as possible, reached out to as many others who had been on the journey before me, journaling the whole way through...And it was a remarkable experience!

And now I help others do it too!

I am a Black Woman
completely, head over heels in love with

My Man, Myself and My Life.

I chose to have a Destination Wedding and saw no real representation or support system for others like me,
so I decided to start one myself.
