La’Mont first met Rose at a lounge she was waitressing at. He was too nervous to talk to her, but his father who was with him spoke up for La’Mont and hooked the two up. While Rose was pregnant, La’Mont claimed the need to leave town for work, while Rose went to her mother-in-law’s to plan the baby shower. She was sad he had left town, and to cheer her up La’Mont’s mother suggested they go to the rooftop at the Westin in downtown Nashville. Rose loves rooftop bars and patios, with skyline views, and once there she was surprised by La’Mont, who popped out from behind a cabana to propose to her. All of her friends and family were there to celebrate too. Rose said, “When I looked, all my friends were crying along with everyone else up there”.
The couple knew they wanted a destination wedding, and a family member suggested the Sonesta Maho resort in St. Martin. Working with Destify agent India proved easy and was an exceptional process. Rose said, “She lifted so much weight off my shoulders”. Since the couple already knew the resort they wanted, the entire booking process was done in a matter of hours. Rose loved that she was able to do the majority of her wedding planning through text, it was so convenient.
The couple stayed at Sonesta for 10 days, enjoying the resort, and even took the time to enjoy an ATV excursion. Most of the guests arrived 2 days prior to the ceremony. They had such a great time at the resort, that there never felt like a need to leave it. The couple hosted their ceremony at 4pm, on the Pavilion Terrace, a rooftop-like area with ocean views. Rose said, “I wanted small and intimate and it was exactly what I got”. The couple chose to extend the cocktail hour following the ceremony, so it lasted for 2 hours, which lead to a delicious dinner in a private area. The couple agreed it was phenomenal from start to finish. Beyond the wedding festivities, the couple loved the ATV tour and the nightly performances at the resort.
The couple has this advice for future destination weddings: anything is possible when it comes to a destination wedding, so do what makes you happy! Whatever you decide you may want, Destify can make happen.
The ceremony was beautiful and everything I wanted.
