Saint Petersburg, FL (PRWEB) November 05, 2012
St Petersburg based Simple Weddings recently announced a strategic partnership with Sandals Resorts that enables them to offer Caribbean honeymoon and destination wedding packages in addition to their Florida-based wedding planning and photography services.
Owner Jeff Copeland explained, "Most of our clients are from out-of-state, and many are planning their destination wedding here in Florida to make the travel arrangements easier on their wedding guests. But many of these same couples also have a yearning to get away from it all after the wedding and spend their honeymoon in the Caribbean. Florida is the perfect starting point for travel to the Caribbean, and we wanted to be able to offer honeymoon packages as a service to our clients. We sought out the industry leader in luxury all-inclusive resorts, and Sandals just seemed like a perfect fit!"
Copeland also noted that many clients contact his company early in the planning stages of their wedding, when they are still researching whether Florida or the Caribbean is the right place for their destination wedding. "As much as we'd like everyone to come to Florida, we realize that many couples ultimately decide to have their destination wedding in the Caribbean, so we are pleased to be able to offer destination wedding packages to the Caribbean as well" said Copeland, "and we think most couples prefer to work with a wedding planning company on the details of their destination wedding, rather than going through a website or a travel agent. So offering this service was just a logical choice for us."
Copeland formally announced this new partnership at an Open House and Caribbean Night held at the company's headquarters in St Petersburg last week.
Simple Weddings is affiliated with Sandals Resorts through a special program managed by the Association of Bridal Consultants, and now offers honeymoon and destination wedding packages in The Bahamas, Jamaica, Antigua, St Lucia, and Turks & Caicos.
