We met at a party, became friends and started dating months later. We are very social and love the water. We could not imagine getting married anywhere but the beach even though we live on the gulf coast. We had a wonderful engagement party in April of 2018 where we announced our wedding plans for a destination wedding the following year.
Destination & Resort: Sandals Ochi
Number of guests: 25 Ceremony location: Gazebo overlooking the water

Favorite thing about the Resort: Large, lots of things to do

Why did you choose to partner with Love to Travel for your destination wedding: I had a friend that used this travel agent for their destination wedding and it was enjoyable so thought i would use the same one. We had a great experience with Love to Travel, Sandals can be slow at answering but was so nice to have someone else the guest could call with questions. They made everything very easy for us! They knew al the right questions to ask to make the trip wonderful.
Advice to other wedding couples: If the resort has extra benefits at a certain number of rooms reserve that amount and if not booked cancel later. Harder to get more rooms than to cancel them. Go on the pre wedding trip if your resort has one. that way you know your way around the report a bit and not wasting a day of your wedding/ honeymoon looking at all the locations and making all decisions last minute. Once you go to pick out the stops of the wedding ahead of time do it at the time of the events the weather (wind) can change throughout the day. don't plan an event for the day everyone is arriving, added stress on you to get the information to everyone as they get there. Enjoy the time with your friends and family everything doesn't have to be perfect the guests are there for you not because they expected wonderful food, perfect decorations or plans not to change last minute.
Preferred 1 year anniversary trip location: To do it all over again minus the wedding. We had a wonderful time
Any Additional Information: If you wedding is at Ochi - the resort is huge. stay on the same side as your guests or you will be on the bus a lot
