Taiesha N. Washington & Ke’Onda L. JarmonWed on June 23, 2018Henderson Beach State Park, Destin, FloridaPhotographer: Michael HammerAttire: Gilded Gown, Knoxville, TennesseeHair: Woodrow Trumbo; A’bril Elon, celebrity hair stylist, AtlantaMakeup: Nadiyyah Shabazz“Visit the destination at least twice before the wedding day,” says Ke’Onda, who with Taiesha traveled to Destin to seek out and confirm vendors. “Do your homework on hotels, flights and restaurants that are cost-efficient for everyone invited. A destination was always a dream of mine. The ocean is therapeutic, and that is how I envision a strong marriage. We know how aggravating it could be trying to invite everyone and to greet everyone who attended. Once we announced that we were having a destination wedding, the majority of our family and friends were no longer disappointed they didn’t get an invite. But we didn’t get to invest much in our local small businesses of Louisville. Although several were used, we wanted to support more.”Brooke Wethington & Scott MorrisonWed on June 7, 2018?Lowndes Grove Plantation, Charleston, South CarolinaPhotographer: Firm AnchorFlowers: Out of the Garden, CharlestonHair and makeup: Meg Workman, CharlestonAttire: Dress from Robert Bullock. Suit from JoS. A. Bank.“The lifesaver to planning my wedding was Instagram,” Brooke says. “I would search hashtags of Charleston weddings. When you plan a destination wedding, you can cut costs by getting married on a weekday — venues are almost half the cost on a Thursday! I was under the impression that planning a destination wedding can be a way to cut costs — less people? — and that is false. I went significantly over my budget due to traveling and adding small details to make my guests more comfortable. And I came home with too many personalized koozies and ChapSticks, so that’s a detail I may have left out. It was the best time having all of my favorite people on the beach just relaxing for days before and after. I strongly suggest having a large area for people to hang out. We rented a large house with a pool. So fun!”Hannah Sells & Geoff LyversWed on July 21, 2018Lost River Cave, Bowlin... https://www.louisville.com/content/five-couples-escape-familiar-destination-weddings
