Destination Wedding Planner
At Sweet Pea Events, we have planned many classic weddings, but some of the unforgettable ones were destination weddings in a locale that once lived in our client’s dreams. Most couples who have opted for a destination wedding had fallen in love with the location far in advance and always dreamed of coming back to say, “I do.”
The spot may have been a childhood favorite, an exclusive villa in Mexico the couple vacationed in together or an island they’ve wanted to return to. Destination weddings may seem daunting at first, but we’re here to fret the details so you don’t have to. We have planned many to the tee for busy couples as they embarked on a journey of their own to marry away from home. We’ll show you that they can be affordable and provide an intimate setting for handpicked loved ones.
Picture your wedding weekend with warm skies, turquoise seas and happy guests frolicking on the beach right there with you. Or maybe a cool outdoor ceremony in the mountains of Colorado where you spent your childhood is more to your liking.
We pride ourselves in being laid back yet obsessed with bringing all of your ideas to life on your special day. Destination weddings have gained in popularity as couples see their advantages compared to traditional, large scale events.
Some of our destination weddings have taken us to Cabo San Lucas for a gorgeous and intimate affair, Colorado Springs to a beautiful mountainside resort and to the warm tropical climates of Kona, Hawaii.
Advantages we have noted at these destinations include increased intimacy among guests and streamlined costs. Having a traditional ceremony and reception for 200 guests at a ritzy hotel will get expensive and stressful. It’s not a surprise when we see couples ecstatic to invite only their nearest and dearest to an intimate gathering at an island resort they adore. It feels like a vacation for everyone! This kind of wedding clearly decreases the stress of who not to invite and really narrows the list to those you truly love. You also spend efficiently by focusing on activities for a smaller list of guests and by leaving the details to us, you get to focus on being present.
We offer customizable packages that work with your budget, timeline and priorities. Our Pink Package is a month-of planning service that starts 6 weeks prior to your wedding day. We confirm details with all of your vendors, prepare a comprehensive wedding day timeline, act as the go-to person and bring along an assistant event coordinator the day of the wedding. Our Couture Package is a full planning service that includes all of the details from the Pink Package plus more. This package includes unlimited in-person meetings, a comprehensive budget developed with your priorities in mind and we even track spending. The Couture Package also allows us to bring your decor elements to life with the right wedding professionals for your venue.
