    Beautiful Venue!!

    We chose to have our destination wedding at the beautiful Amara Cay resort. Our ceremony was under the palm trees and reception was under the Tiki on site. Our guest were so impressed with how everything turned out. We couldn’t have asked for a more perfect day!

    A Dream Come True

    When we started wedding planning, my now husband and I knew we wanted to get married on a beach, but where. We found Amara Cay through Instagram and quickly decided to do a site tour in early March 2020. We immediately fell in love with the resort and knew this was where we wanted to start our lives as husband and wife, and what a great decision that was. From original contract planning and all the little details in between, Andrea and her team at Amara Cay were so professional and responsive and easy to work with! We felt so supported in our wedding planning from afar and everything was a dream come true on our wedding day. Over our wedding weekend, everyone at Amara cay were so welcoming to us and our guest and we felt right at home. We can’t wait to visit again soon!
