Ever dream of a wedding in Scotland? Kerri Lapointe and Michael Webber actually did it!

And with style I might add. Check out that great kilt. See what the mother of the bride says about a Destination Scotland Wedding!!!

Destination Wedding in a castle in Scotland

I don't know if I can explain how wonderful it was to have a destination wedding. No one was driving, everyone was right there in time for the ceremony and the party. The most stressful part was hoping our clothes still fit on the wedding day, after enjoying great food and drink for 4 days before.
Scotland was most hospitable. The rules to marry were very clear, and before leaving the USA we had all confirmed papers, and it was just the ceremony and the wedding certificate left when we got there. WE spent some time in Edinburgh before going on to the Castle in Peebles. We stayed in a hotel that was in the middle of the shopping area and a very short walk up to the Royal Mile. Our hotel rooms looked out onto Edinburgh Castle. We had an easy 30 minute drive south to Peebles and up the driveway to the Castle. There were 3 B&B's along the driveway, so the overflow of people stayed there and could walk up the hill for dinner at the castle. The castle rooms are priced to include breakfast, and an allowance for the evening
meal. It was a terrific bargin. The food was exceptional! Each room in the castle is named for a Scotch, and we all tried the one that corresponded to our rooms. WE had drinks before dinner in the Library each night, and usually a nightcap after.

It was a most romantic and gracious place for a wedding and for a stay. Destination weddings are held in many wonderful places, not just warm climates. WE felt it was a wedding for a Princess and we were all treated like Royalty.

We had an amazing trip and a perfect wedding day.Could not have asked for a better place to be for our special day with so many of our friends and family.Thank you for helping us make it all happen.We did a number of the excursions including jungle-top ziplining, a catamaran cruise where we saw whales and dolphins, and a great beachfront horseback ride.Also saw baby, sea turtles being born on the beach; priceless.The weather was gorgeous and the pools were great.

Thanks again,

Jamaica Wedding


Our entire group had a blast. We can not wait to go back!! The wedding turned out fantastic and all of the staff was very accommodating. The weather was great even though it rained a couple of times but we were not bothered by it one bit! We didn't end up going on any excursions.....mostly hung out at the beach and swim up bar area! I could not have asked for a better trip!!
Thanks again for everything!!!


Hi Gayle-

We had a fabulous time in Jamaica! The wedding and all of the staff were wonderful!! All of our guest had a blast! They gave us the champagne reception for everyone also which was a nice little bonus!

Kurt and I are already planning on going to another Sandals in 5 years-maybe Bahamas or a different city in Jamaica. (the whitehouse looks awesome!!)

Thank you for all of your help along the way. Everything worked out perfectly just like you said it would.

Thank you again,

Adele Kujawa


Tahiti Honeymoon

Our trip was awesome! We loved Moorea, and loved the beach bungalows even more at the intercontinental than the over water's at the intercontinental. We also did the shark and sea ray excursion there and had lunch on the motu. It was unbelievable.

Did I mention the food? It was outstanding. That breakfast was well worth it! It saved us a lot of money, and monkeying around and no worries.

Bora Bora. Absolutely fabulous and the service couldn't have been better. We met a bunch of other honeymooners here with our same wedding date and spent many of our later evenings celebrating with them. YES, we got the canoe breakfast. It was really neat. Thank you for organizing that.

It was so hard to come back, I cried the whole way and most of yesterday. (my eye's are still puffy!) and it was so romantic. A great way to kick off our new lives together.

It was so fabulous. Thanks again Gayle!
It was the most amazing time ever!
We are already thinking of our next vacation!

Not everyone wants a beach vacation for their honeymoon you will see!

Italy is where Jill and Joseph decided to spend their Honeymoon!

Hello Mary!

Our trip was amazing! The tour guides were great, and we were very happy with the itinerary. We're really happy that you had us fly in to Venice first, because that gave us a few days to adjust to the time change before our longer days in Rome...we loved Venice though, and wished we would've spent more time there!Thanks so much for your assistance! It made our honeymoon so much more enjoyable! Joseph and Jill

    I originally was working with LaMacchia Travel Agency in Kenosha, and felt as though I was getting nowhere with them. Having met Pat Weber from Firstchoice travel & Cruise at a bridal show, I decided to email her regarding questions w/ my destination wedding I wanted to plan. Within 24-48hours she was able to get me the resort I wanted to go to, and a wedding date. I couldnt believe it, since I had been literally waiting several weeks, actually almost 2 months, to get a response from that resort with LaMacchia travel. The travel agent there was trying to get us to go with Iberostar, and I had my heart set on Ocean Blue & Sand in Punta Cana. With that being said, I called up the travel agent from LaMacchia and told her I no longer needed her services. Pat Weber took care of all my wedding, travel needs for myself and all 29 of my guests. She was great. My wedding was perfect!!!
