Couples that adventure together, stay together, but planning a wedding while overseas can definitely be difficult. Lucky for Jennifer and Bryan, it all worked out perfectly for their destination wedding at The Hermosa Inn. Despite Jenny being in Scotland and Bryan being in Washington during the months leading up to their big day, their goal of having a classic, timeless and seemingly effortless celebration was pulled off extraordinarily, with Malone Sinclaire highlighting the unique color scheme of their big day in photographs and The Hermosa Inn offering a perfect backdrop for their destination wedding.
Jenny and Brian met while working together, and after three and a half years of dating, Bryan visited Jenny in Scotland and proposed as they were walking across a small stone bridge in Edinburgh. With family spread across the country, Jenny and Bryan used their small, intimate ceremony as a way to spend time with those they don’t see often enough.
The ceremony was short, but full of laughter and happy tears. Jenny said her favorite part was the opening speech her brother/officiant gave, which caused her to laugh so hard she had to stop the procession for a few minutes. The vivacious vibe of the ceremony followed the wedding party to the reception, which lasted well into the night. Bryan’s father surprised the newlyweds with a speech, and family and friends chatted over food catered by Lon’s at The Hermosa Inn. The guests were gifted with personal letters from the bride and groom, and instead of leaving in a flurry of rice or confetti, the couple chose to stay and chat with friends until the wee hours of the morning. Since the couple spent so much time out of the country leading up to the wedding, they have decided to lay low for a little bit, but intend to go on a safari for their near-future honeymoon.
