SCOTISH HIGHLAND WEDDING!

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.

Hello Sara,

I hope this message finds you doing well!

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,

Brett May



Excellence Punta Cana Wedding
Hi Gayle, Honestly the whole trip was a dream! I couldn't have asked for a more perfect day!!!! Thank you so much for recommending the Excellence, they really have putting together a wedding down! I wrote a review on Trip advisor. It's the "attention all Brides" one. I will call you sometime this week after work to give you more details;) Julie Dietz Breezes Runaway Bay Wedding in Jamaica Gayle, 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!! My friend is working on a disk with all of the wedding pictures (he was our personal photographer). We have a great group picture so as soon as I get those I will forward you a few pictures.

Thanks again for everything!!!
Raeanne SANDALS NEGRIL WEDDING
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




Hello to Gayle and staff, Congrats on over 20 years of making people smile!!!!!! We thank you for all the years that you have given us memories to cherish for a lifetime. Wishing you many more years of continued success. Bob & Katie Watson Read less

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!!!

My husband and I worked with Tana from First Choice Travel and Cruise for our wedding this past January. Choosing a travel agent was harder than one would think and I believe it makes a big difference in the overall planning of a destination wedding. We worked with 3 other agencies before we met Tana and we are so thankful we didn’t settle. Tana was an absolute pleasure to work with and really went above and beyond for us. We traveled with 43 guests that she booked. More than just taking care of our travel arrangements, Tana became in so many ways my wedding coordinator. We were in constant contact from the time we met until the moment we left for the wedding. She helped my husband and I decide on a destination, resort… (We were literally all over until we met her) she aided us in deciding a date, time for the wedding and soo much more. When I say she went above and beyond for us, she certainly did.. from booking our flights to making our spa appointments for our hair the day of the wedding. She was my lifeline and such a godsend during the planning of not only a wedding, but a wedding that was in another country. She has a lot of experience as she’s worked with plenty of destination weddings, had a destination wedding of her own and has traveled to so many of the countries we were looking into. During the year we planned our wedding we booked a girlfriend getaway to Vegas thru her and she surprised us with a limo transfer! We appreciate everything she did for us and anyone who has the opportunity to work with her is quite blessed! We certainly feel so!

Our destination wedding in Punta Cana was a huge success! We were on a budget, and Tana helped us find a resort that would not only meet my expectations as a bride for my wedding, but also keep the cost down for both us and our guests. We could not be happier with how it all turned out, and our family and friends are still talking about their trip. Thanks again Tana!

I was amazed at how knowledgeable and helpful the staff at First Choice Travel and Cruise were. There are different rules for marriage in other countries that we had no idea even where to begin. The travel agents gave us great advise and a walk through step by step. We felt very comfortable talking to the agents and you could tell they really knew each destination. We also thought it was helpful learning the first hand experiences from the agents as well as past wedding couples. This advise helped make our decisions for our dream wedding!

First Choice Travel and Cruise was great to work with. We had a destination wedding and needed a travel agent to help us pick a location, hotel and help everyone book and keep everything organized. We had the pleasure of working with Mary and she did a fantastic job. She was always professional, easy to work with and quick to respond. She met with us to help us pick a location and hotel and we did all other corresponding over phone and email since we did not live nearby. She helped us to find a great resort and followed through from beginning to end. She made sure everyone was getting everything in when they needed to, she followed up with people and sent helpful reminders and information. She had me CC her on all my emails with the wedding coordinator at the resort to make sure everything was going well and I was getting all of the help I needed. They set up a web page for your guests so that they could easily find any information they needed. We will definitely be going back to First Choice travel and cruise for future vacations, we were thrilled with the prices they got us and how helpful and friendly they were. Planning a trip for 30 people is difficult and they made it easy and stress free. I would definitely recommend them to anyone, especially if you are having a destination wedding.
