Tania Marie Sibonney and Joseph Amar chose to be married in Mexico and 110 family and friends chose to accompany them. Everyone had a marvellous time! Their love affair began in 2006. Nearly seven years later they were having a holiday in Miami when, after visiting a spa, rose petals were strewn, champagne was opened and, with a Tacori box in hand, Joseph proposed. Then they worked together to plan their wedding, with surprises for their guests that included lively entertainment. Gifts for their guests were white embroidered beach towels, a wedding magazine, beach bag and personalized playing cards.
The Chuppah was extraordinary, with orchid strands, roses and hydrangeas. However, the couple say that their favourite moment was walking into the reception as husband and wife and seeing all their family and friends who had made such an effort to travel from around the world to celebrate their wedding. They said, “It was a truly emotional and humbling moment.”
The bride received a special gift: A custom made gold and pearl five-row cuff with crystal accents designed by Tania Marie’s mother and father.
The couple enthusiastically recommends a destination wedding; the energy filled the entire week, heightened by everyone’s joy and excitement. However, they offer this advice: “Don’t get involved with making travel arrangements for your guests. Dealing with booking flights and hotels is stressful and best handled by each individual.”
Their wedding was beyond their expectations and filled with so many special memories and moments they will never forget.
