In a previous post, I discussed the importance of wedding planning visits when planning a destination wedding. Last week, I spent 3 days in sunny Los Angeles with my Mom, daughter and wedding planner to do nothing but wedding plan…well, kinda, except for when we put on our tourist hats and since it was Ava’s Spring Break, checked off all of her “to-dos” from her list, which was a list of random, but dope, sights to see. But, for the most part, we were knee deep in wedding planning. [Read more…]
So, we decided to have a wedding in a city that is over 1,800 miles away from our home. Apparently, a year long, long distance relationship wasn’t enough for the kid – I needed more distance and distance I got.

Couple: Tamika & Juan
Wedding Date: April 14, 2013
Wedding Location: The Legare Waring House, Charleston, South Carolina
Theme: Love, Life & Us
Washington, D.C.-based bride Tamika became a friend of Triple B when she entered a photography GIVEAWAY we co-sponsored last year. Both Tamika’s individual accomplishments (she’s a 10+ year cancer survivor and founder of Tamika & Friends, Inc.) and collective accomplishments with Juan (Tamika fell in love with Juan and his daughter!) are impressive and gives even the biggest cynic hope that true love is still out there for all of us. This is much bigger than a wedding. Theirs is a story of survival, the value of life, the power of love and the resilience of the human spirit. Enjoy the trailer!
Perhaps its the fact that summer 2012 is officially here or that I’m excited about an upcoming vacation (WOO HOO!) but today I wanted to take a look back at some of the most memorable destination weddings featured in Tie the Knot Tuesday. Triple B has covered weddings in domestic destinations like Las Vegas and New Orleans to far away locales like Uganda, Africa. Even in cities that were not their own, all of these couples managed to make their weddings beautifully personal. Enjoy!
