Wedding season is here! Before wedding season comes wedding planning...and every bride (and groom) has their dream destination weddings they have considered. This article covers my top 5 personal dream wedding destinations as the photographer.
#1: Haiku Mill, Maui, Hawaii
#3: Punta Cana, Dominican Republic
#5: The Foundry, Queens, New York
*Honorable Mentions: Montego Bay, Jamaica; St. Croix, US Virgin Islands; The Palm, Dubai; Tuscany, Italy; Scotland; Calistoga Ranch, Napa, California; Union Hill, Sonora, California.
When I think of dream wedding destinations naturally I am drawn to white sandy beaches, beautiful weather - and a fun filled evening with entertainment. Of course, after the wedding is over you want a location your guests can fully enjoy for days on end. From a wedding photography perspective my favorites include some of the world's top beaches - especially because these locations have developed an industry around weddings and making sure every detail is taken care of for their guests.
My honorable mentions include several United States locations in California and Hawaii. There are of course many options in Colorado, Texas, and New York but being on the west coast I am drawn to California. I will be heading to Hawaii this summer to photograph a wedding for a fellow photographer.
