Hello, fellow Destination Wedding Fans:

It’s that time again: Wedding Album Review! It’s time to chat with a couple about their destination wedding experience and get an insider’s view on what made it meaningful, fun, and extraordinary.

I ask the questions, and they provide photos and memories.

This is Mr. and Mrs. Wickett (better known as Mike Wickett and Leigh McNabb) from Kansas City, MO. They got married at the sexy SLS Las Vegas on May 2017. I promise you’re going to love this wedding.

Will: Why did you choose a destination wedding?

The Wickett’s: Fun and affordable

Will: How many attendees did you have? What kind of experience did you envision your guests having?

 The Wickett’s: Around 100. They all had fun. That was the goal!
 Will: What was one part of planning your wedding that you knew you couldn’t have done alone? How did having a Destination Wedding Specialist help with that?

The Wickett’s: Dealing with the onsite staff. I had the best – Will!

 Will: What piece of advice would you give to couples who are just starting the planning process?

The Wickett’s: Don’t do it alone. You’ll drive yourself nuts.

 Will: What’s one “extra” you’re super glad you splurged on?  What surprised you the most about your wedding?

The Wickett’sThe photographer and the keg of Miller Lite. What surprised us the most was how smoothly it went.
 Will: If you could choose three words to describe your wedding, what would they be?
The Wickett’s:
  1. Fun
  2. Special
  3. One-of-a-kind
 Will: What is your favorite memory from your big day?
The Wickett’s: Everyone being together – welcome reception, wedding, reception pool party and more. We capped it off with an AMAZING helicopter ride around the city.
Vendors Love:

I am grateful to Mike and Leigh for taking the time to share these memories with me and allowing me to be a part of the planning and their special wedding day, which I shall always remember as a fond memory of my first time in Las Vegas.


As I worked on this feature, I could not help but laugh at our virtual meetings over beers (I miss those!) while we adjusted the plan from the original destination choice to Las Vegas. Are you surprised that we had to special order a keg of beer?

I can’t say it enough: I love to travel, and I love my job.

¡Hasta la próxima véz!

Here’s the deal: I know you’re dreaming of a tropical beach wedding — may be in Mexico or the Caribbean, warm sand, breathtaking scenery, a gentle breeze blowing your hair in a way that makes you look even more incredible than you imagined — followed by the kind of exotic honeymoon that you’ll be talking about (and hopefully re-living!) for decades. And I get that you’re busy with work and life and might not be super sure about where to go or how to get the best deals or how to plan for everything that might come up. But one thing you do know for sure: you don’t want to leave this event up to chance. Whether you are planning to elope or bring 200 of your closest family and friends, it is my job to understand you and your desires, and then combine my extensive knowledge of the available destinations in order to make this dream event a reality. This more than work, this is my passion!
