One of our favorites and a true definition of a destination wedding. This  West Coast couple chose us as their East Coast ceremony location and the rest was pure magic! Keep scrolling through the gallery for a few (hundred) of our favorite shots from this October wedding.

But first be sure to check out the review our bride, Jenna, left us on WeddingWire (we’re not crying, you’re crying):

Destination Wedding Of My Dreams

The King and Prince was truly a perfect place to get married! They made all of my dreams come true! Our ceremony was on the beautiful ocean front lawn and reception was held in the Delegal room adjacent to the lawn! I loved the whole atmosphere of the King and Prince! Dionne was wonderful to work with throughout the entire wedding process! I planned our wedding while living in California and Dionne was always available, professional and friendly to work with! She made sure that every detail of our wedding was exactly how I wanted! The majority of our wedding guests stayed at the King and Prince for the weekend and everyone was so impressed with the entire hotel atmosphere, staff, and food! It was so nice to give our guests a beach getaway at the same time as celebrating our wedding! We received so many great compliments and and have so many happy memories from the weekend! We cannot thank the entire staff of the King and Prince enough!

Bridal Confession: Why I Choose a Destination Wedding

Wednesday, October 23rd, 2013

One bride’s point of view on the benefits of a destination wedding…

I knew that I had to plan a destination wedding. It all started with my husband’s family’s obsession with the Nebraska Cornhuskers. They envisioned our most important day on a farm in Nebraska, designed in the colors of the college football team.

When different members of the family started emailing us photos of various red and white colored barns, I knew that a destination wedding was my only way out of their Husker fantasy nuptial.

Born and raised in Savannah, Georgia, my family would never agree to a wedding to a Husker themed wedding…we had to be in neutral territory.

So, that’s when my fiance and I decided on a wedding destination.

Because my parents were financing our wedding and being from two different religions, we did not want have to choose one over the other. A destination wedding  would make the most sense. Besides, we did not want to evoke discord between our families’ about a church ceremony.

Our destination plans also served as another  convenient way to weed out our ever growing guest list. Between our family requests, friends and colleagues, we were up to 400+ people.

We knew we had to escape the drama of both our families, if our special day was going to play out without any conflicts.  Approaching our wedding plans  as if we were scouting a film for a movie, we wanted our destination wedding to take place somewhere, foreign and exotic from our usual surroundings. As we compared wedding destinations in other countries, we were pruning our guest list to 150 people.

At first, we contemplated a destination wedding in Florence, Italy. But, then we realized that we’d excluding many family members. Then, we considered Cozumel. But, that was still too far to expect 150 guests to board an international flight.

That’s when we decided on an oceanfront wedding right here in the United States. It was “beachy” enough to feel like we were someplace special without boarding an international flight. Choosing a location situated with a front row view of the Atlantic Coast that could host our ceremony, reception and honeymoon proved to be the perfect decision for us!

There are a lot of factors that go into choosing the location for your wedding, but nothing beats an ocean view!
