What is a destination wedding? A destination wedding is where the ceremony itself, the reception, and the honeymoon, all occur over several days and in the same place. Destination Weddings are ideal for those marrying for a second time, and couples looking for something fun and different or a slightly non-traditional wedding. While planning such an event can present unique challenges, our catering specialists can make the planning of a long-distance event stress-free.
