Casiel & Lauren Excellence El Carmen January 7, 2017
We met through a mutual friend’s birthday party. We dated 2 years and then got engaged in Weston, MO. We both loved to travel together so after we got engaged we knew we wanted to have a destination wedding. We wanted something more intimate but it ended up being a larger wedding than expected. We were pleasantly surprised and would highly recommend a destination wedding to anyone!
