The Love Story

Jasmine and Clifton first met at a gathering thrown by a mutual friend. Clifton approached Jasmine immediately to ask her on a date. She declined. Not missing a beat, Clifton persisted and Jasmine eventually said yes!

The Planning Experience

They weren't always certain about having a destination wedding, but once they learned how affordable it could be, they were sold! They loved that they had the option to put together a custom wedding package that would suit all of their needs. They also figured that a destination wedding would allow them to leave the worrying to someone else, and they were right! The two lovers were married at Dreams Punta Cana Resort & Spa, based on the great reviews they heard. With their main focus being on their guests' experience, they were able to provide a kid-friendly and affordable trip to paradise that everyone could enjoy.

The Celebration

The wedding itself was very sweet and personal. The coral decor was so vibrant against the lush background, allowing them to fully embrace the tropical setting. It was also complete with "jumping the broom", which is a meaningful tradition in the African American community, symbolizing their jump into a new future with each other. Jasmine and Clifton even wrote their own vows. This allowed them to truly express their love to one another and make beautiful promises with the intention of one day sharing them with their future children. The couple indulged in plenty of fun on and off the resort. While taking a peek into the local ecosystem, they learned that the flamingos were actually helping to feed the fish! They really took in the culture with a trip into town to see how chocolate and coffee is made. Jasmine and Clifton are adventure seekers, so they also went ATV off-roading and cave diving!

The Memories

Once their guests had left, Jasmine and Clifton were able to enjoy a private complimentary dinner on the beach. It was like a scene straight out of a romance novel with the sun setting while they felt the sand between their toes and the cool breeze across their faces. Jasmine and Clifton described their wedding as "exotic, exciting, and exquisite." By having a destination wedding they were able to create a one-of-a-kind experience that they wouldn't have been able to have otherwise. The two would recommend a destination wedding in a heartbeat.

Advice For Future Couples

Jasmine and Clifton want to remind couples to trust the people they are working with and just focus on enjoying the experience with each other!
