New York couple Dana and Christopher visited the island five times prior to their wedding here, as well as getting engaged on the island.
Aruba boasts the highest repeat ratio of visitors in the entire Caribbean.
“We love the people, the culture, and the weather.” -Dana
The couple’s familiarity with the island prompted them to choose two venues to celebrate their nuptials—the iconic beach setting of Palm Beach for the ceremony and the dramatic views and sophistication of the clubhouse at Tierra del Sol Resort & Golf for the reception.
The groom and groomsmen wore white button down shirts with gray trousers, and the bridesmaids wore blush to coordinate with the gray, blush, and white color theme.
Dana’s dress by Allure Bridals, was a form-fitting strapless lace design.
The ceremony was coordinated by the Marriott Resort & Stellaris Casino and held beachfront at the resort. Following the ceremony, a chartered bus from Wix Tours took the guests from Palm Beach to Tierra del Sol for the reception. The couple used the chic setting of the clubhouse for a small photo shoot while guests enjoyed a premium bar cocktail hour.
A poolside three-course dinner was prepared by the culinary team at The Restaurant at Tierra del Sol, featuring choices like traditional beef tenderloin in a peppercorn sauce and fresh grouper with an authentic island creole sauce. The bride reports, “the food was out-of-this-world amazing!”
The reception had multiple entertainment components, including a deejay and dancing,
a photo booth, and fresh cigars rolled on site.
