Wedding season is in full swing and when it comes to destination weddings, Now Larimar Resort & Spa in sunny Punta Cana has exactly what you need for an elegant and fun celebration. This Wedding Wednesday, we want to congratulate newlyweds Alex and AJ, who celebrated their wedding with us just last week!

Philadelphia graphic designer Stephanie Patterson put together the beautiful beach-inspired blue and white wedding invitations for Alex and AJ and documented their big day here on her blog. According to Stephanie’s thoughts on destination weddings, “that mix of vacation festivities and seaside “I Do’s” is always a good one.” The couple’s fabulous stationery suite included invitations, an RSVP postcard, addressed envelopes, wedding programs, social media signs, table numbers, door hangers, VIP all access guest passes, welcome letter and photo thank you cards. They truly thought of everything and that consistency really brings together their stylistic scheme! See the photos below for a taste of destination wedding inspiration.
