Puerto Rico has so much to offer

-Wilmary and Stefan

“If serving good food is on your list of priorities, Puerto Rico is the destination!”

Wilmary and Stefan wanted to give their guests a real vacation as part of their weekend destination wedding. After considering several options in the Caribbean, they chose Vieques, Puerto Rico. “It was a great idea to have the wedding there because, in addition to a luxury location, we also had local atmosphere.”

For this couple residing in Manhattan, N.Y., the wedding’s food was a key aspect that was perfectly handled. “Puerto Ricans are very proud of their cuisine. If serving good food is on your list of priorities, Puerto Rico is the destination!”

Another detail to which Wilmary paid special attention was the ability to incorporate elements of Puerto Rican culture in the celebration. “We had excellent Puerto Rican food and a group of pleneros [a musical group that plays traditional rhythms]. Our guests were caught up in the island’s energy.”

Easy-to-reach destination

-Melissa and Jason

“Everything we dreamed for our wedding day came true in Puerto Rico!”

“Everything we dreamed for our wedding day came true in Puerto Rico!” said Melissa and Jason of North Augusta, South Carolina, when asked why they chose the island to host their wedding.

Another aspect that played a positive role in deciding to hold their event here was how easy it was for their guests to get to Puerto Rico. “Since no passport is required for U.S. citizens and you can find cheap plane tickets, it was very easy for our family and friends to get here. They all had a great time and also had the opportunity to explore different parts of the island,” Melissa recalled.

Her great experience with hired local suppliers is definitely worth noting. “Everyone worked to have the island’s beauty become part of our style.”
