a destination wedding done right

I have to warn you that this post might tempt you to immediately pack your bags and book a trip to South Africa! Candice Pool {jewelry creator} and Casey Neistat’s {filmmaker} destination wedding recently featured on Vogue.com is the perfect balance of wedding pretty and event fabulous.  The couple decided to marry in South Africa because that is where the bride is from, and they traveled there together several times during their courtship.

From a pre-wedding cocktail hour at a boutique vineyard to a beachside ceremony followed by a festive dinner celebration, this couple got it right without being too serious.  There seemed to be a nice mix of formality and fun.

I loved the integration of the local marimba band into the event along with the “color coordinated” group shots with all of their guests – the all white wardrobe made for stunning photos.  Every picture has a breathtaking backdrop which speaks to the beauty of South Africa – and that sky!

I think people have mixed feelings about destination weddings. Sometimes getting there can be a hassle however, once you are there and able to experience a new place with a close knit group, as well as see & celebrate one of your favorite couples get married in a breathtaking setting, how can it not be an incredibly special experience?

Wishing you a beautiful day,
