Blake & Tom's Destination Wedding
When Tom and I decided to have a destination wedding, we knew we'd need quite a bit of guidance throughout the whole process, particularly as we weren't going to be visiting our options. Once I connected with Briana, it was so unbelievably obvious that she truly wanted to understand Tom's and my individual must-haves and must-not-haves. With this information, she was able to make very specific recommendations that would equally meet both of our hopes for this special time. I'd often come up with location or resort ideas, and Briana always let me know if this would meet what she knew to be our needs, if it would suit only Tom or only me, or if the idea was to be vetoed. There is nothing more that I love and look for than honesty and guidance, especially during a process such as this one! Briana completely understood and empathized with what we were looking for and, with that, we chose Secrets Maroma (without ever visiting! What does that say about how much we trusted Briana?!). Briana and Craig made this process unbelievably simple and top-notch for us as well as our guests, from day 1 of planning until the last day of our wedding-stay. Their names became household names; my friends talked about Briana and Craig all the time, and were disappointed to learn they wouldn't be meeting them at the wedding. After 11 months, we had the most incredible week of our lives, far surpassing what we or anyone could've ever expected. Secrets Maroma put Tom and I on cloud 9, as well as every single one of our 60 guests. The food, service/treatment, beach, and aesthetic were unreal. Our wedding week could not have possibly worked out as well as it did without all of the guidance and assistance that Coral Tide provided throughout the entire process. We can't plan our next trip soon enough, and obviously won't be doing so without the assistance and blessing of Briana. Photographer credit goes to Bohemia Photography.
Andrea & Marlon’s Destination Wedding
Andrea and Marlon were married on the Sky Terrace at Azul Beach Resort The Fives. "First of all, we would like to thank Briana and Craig for their outstanding support from beginning to end. Knowing that we could trust them to manage all aspects of booking gave us peace of mind. Briana was always professional and most importantly very patient with all of our questions and concerns. It was through her recommendation that we picked Azul Fives as our venue. The resort itself was beautiful and our wedding day was exactly what we hoped for and more. The wedding department is friendly and always willing to help which made our day go by smoothly. We loved everything about it and had an amazing time. In addition, this family friendly resort lived up to its "gourmet inclusive" reputation. Food was important for us and I have to say the resort did not disappoint. Our guests had a wonderful time and even talked about going back in the future". We wish our beautiful couple all the best in their future as Mr and Mrs!

Susie & Joe's Destination Wedding
Susie and Joe were married at one of Mexico's top beaches and one of the most popular wedding resorts, Secrets Akumal. Susie and Joe wrote "First and foremost, I want to thank you for all your hard work that went into helping me plan my destination wedding. You made my this trip and my life unbelievably easy and stress-free from start to finish. From arrival to the airport, everything went super smoothly! Everyone really enjoyed the special treatment we received from the private shuttle service as soon as we stepped out of the airport. We were greeted with cold water and the women each received a red rose! When we arrived at the resort, we were immediately handed cold towels and a sparkling beverage! Joe and I were personally escorted to the VIP check-in lounge where we encountered more beverages as well as delicious snacks after a long day of travel..." The team at Coral Tide Travel was so happy to see these photos of this wonderful couple and we wish them the best for their future.
Kasey & Ricki's Destination Wedding
Kasey and Ricki were married at the ever-popular Dreams Punta Cana Resort & Spa. They wrote of their experience "We chose the symbolic paradise package and built up from there. Our wedding was Thursday at 5 on the beach and was absolutely gorgeous...I cannot say enough about the service our group of 35 received. Everyone seemed to truly be happy to be at work and we were never far from someone who wanted to refill our drinks or help us with anything at all. We spent a little time in the preferred lounge and loved it in there as well. We came to our room three times to find champagne waiting on us and were given two bottles of rum as well that we are bringing home..." This sweet couple so deserves a life of love and happiness and we wish them all the best.

I can't thank you both enough for everything!"

Mackenzie and Ryan’s Destination Wedding
Where to have our wedding was a hard decision to make with so many things to consider. You are not supposed to be stressed before your wedding or the day of your wedding, but I wondered how could I avoid stress? A destination wedding was the first thing that came to mind and I must say we are so glad that we decided to have a destination wedding which ultimately turned into a big vacation with our family and closest friends. Briana and Craig at Coral Tide Travel were with us every step of the way answering our questions and helping our guests secure their travel arrangements. They made this process so much simpler than we had imagined. Being on vacation with our toes in the sand definitely helped us achieve the mindset we needed to destress and relax. We arrived a few days before our wedding and got to enjoy the resort and settle in before guests started to arrive. It was so much fun to see our family and friends arrive at the resort and welcome them with an ice cold beverage! We met with our wedding coordinator and changed our minds about wedding details once we were there in person experiencing it. Our wedding coordinator Brenda was very accommodating, she truly made us feel important and at home. She went above and beyond for us and helped make our wedding night the best night of our lives! Our plan was to have the ceremony on the beach but we decided to change the location to the garden to be more intimate plus the greenery was just so beautiful! It rained the night before our wedding and Brenda suggested we move the location of the reception from the Gazebo to inside El Patio, a beautiful Mexican restaurant at the resort because of the slight chance of rain the next day. It was beautiful! The food and reception surpassed our expectations, simply perfect in every way! We also planned an after party at the resort’s music lounge, Desires. This was so much fun, we danced all night and had a blast! We had a wonderful time at Dreams Puerto Aventuras, our wedding was perfect and all of our guests thoroughly enjoyed it! It was the perfect resort for our humble & down to earth group. Photographer credit goes to Iván Castelán.
