Destination: Honeymoon – Fiji

June 26, 2015

Following the trend of tropical paradises for honeymoons, today we are featuring none other than Fiji! Fiji is a country in the South Pacific that almost looks fake in pictures because of how amazingly beautiful it is. The water is as blue as the skies, the white sand is sparkling, and the trees beckon you to spend time lying in their shade, taking a load off and spending time with your new spouse! Among the top resorts in Fiji are the Jean-Michel Cousteau Resort, Outrigger Fiji Beach Resort, and Shangri-La’s Fijian Resort & Spa. If you are planning your honeymoon, Fiji is definitely one of the top places you should look!

Perfect Pair, Perfect Place – Real Wedding of K + R

June 24, 2015

Have you ever had a place that means so much to you because of the special moments and memories you have there? For Kelly and Reed, Georgetown is this place; it is a representation of memories and love from the moment they met. Georgetown is not only the place they met, but also the place where Reed proposed, and finally, the place they spent their perfect wedding day.

After attending school at Georgetown University, they both attended graduate school in upstate New York. Yet, they knew that Georgetown was the place where their fondest memories remained, and they planned their wedding to be there.

Kelly comments on the location, “My favorite moment of the day was walking through the doors of the chapel into a place that meant so much to me and seeing all of the people we love from all phases in our lives in one room – an incredible feeling! – and especially seeing Reed at the other end.”

Their ceremony was at Dahlgren Chapel on Georgetown’s campus, and their reception was at the Colonnade Room at the Fairmont Hotel. “At the end of the night, we had buses to take everyone to The Tombs (a staple of our college experience) to continue the festivities. It was truly our perfect day,” Kelly said.

Destination: Honeymoon – Ritz-Carlton Penha Longa Resort

June 23, 2015

One of the most important parts of a wedding doesn’t even happen at the wedding: it is the time of celebration for the newlyweds, and we affectionately call it the “honeymoon”. For the next few weeks, we want to feature some of the most beautiful resorts for honeymoons all around the world. The first resort that we are featuring is in Sintra, Portugal, and it is the Ritz-Carlton Penha Longa. DW had the pleasure of traveling to this destination and working with a beautiful couple to capture the resort. This place is a beautiful and perfect resort for a honeymoon that will produce amazing memories!
