The bride & groom: Kerry & Kevin"Azul Beach was AWESOME!!! The hotel was beautiful."
What made you decide on having a destination wedding? We had planned on doing a destination wedding for many reasons. I have always wanted to get married on the beach and to do this in MA where we live, the cost and work that would have to go into it, wouldn’t have been worth it. We also love the idea of going on vacation with our closest friends and family. The final reason to do a destination wedding was the cost. It was much cheaper to go away and we got to celebrate with friends and family for 4-5 days rather than just one afternoon!
What made you decide on the destination/resort/venue? The biggest reasons we chose Azul Beach Hotel was because of the reviews. Everyone had such good things to say about Karisma properties it felt like a no brainer to us. Once we decided on Karisma, Azul Beach was a shoo in because of the intimate size and the beautiful beach.
What was the biggest difficulty in planning your destination wedding? Getting all of our stuff down there for the wedding itself. Other than that, reading the reviews and dealing with the vendors via email made it a lot easier than all of the other brides I know.
What was the highlight of the experience and what was the biggest surprise? The highlight of the experience has to be the service. From the minute we arrived, everyone that worked there knew we were getting married there and went out of their way to accommodate us from reserving beach beds for our group the whole week to taking the liberty to bring us snacks on the beach for us, even when we didn’t ask. It was amazing. The biggest surprise has to be how really beautiful the whole resort was. Every detail was just amazing. We loved the lunches on the beach and the Azul Swim up suites were incredible!
How well was the resort and your On site Wedding Coordinator to work with? My off site coordinator Lizzie was fantastic and Celina was great to work with on site. She had each detail of the wedding day completed perfectly. The set up and flow of the entire event went perfectly.
If your best friend were planning a destination wedding what would your advice be to her? Do what you want for the day. It’s your day and you should have it how you like it, not how Grammy wants it.
Was there anything that you would change looking back? I wouldn’t have changed a thing. It was perfect.
