The Long Weekend Wedding lets you celebrate with a series of festive parties, picnics, or other gatherings that bring together your dearest family and friends for unforgettably happy times during the weekend surrounding the ceremony and reception.
The Sentimental Journey lets the two of you and your loved ones revisit a place that holds special meaning for you and your spouse-to-be. In this setting you'll get married and enjoy a one-of-a-kind vacation reception with closest friends and family.
If relatives and old friends are geographically spread out, a Progressive Wedding lets you travel to several places and celebrate the joy of your union in each.
