PALM BEACH—The island of Aruba is one of the Caribbean’s most sought-out venues for a dream destination wedding, and the Westin Resort & Casino, Aruba is the island hot spot for couples looking for the total experience—from ceremony to reception to honeymoon…and everything in-between. Doylestown, Pennsylvania couple Caitlin Nolan and Jay Deppeler recently chose the Westin and the experienced wedding team there to coordinate their dream wedding and the surrounding events.
The couple was joined by more than 60 family and friends who traveled to Aruba to share in this special time. On July 13th, a welcome reception was held featuring the Westin’s gourmet raw bar with oysters, smoked salmon, tuna shooters, and shrimp with an open bar.
The following day, a sunset ceremony on the Westin’s shores on Palm Beach was held, followed by a toes-in-the-sand cocktail reception. Guests were then ushered to the pool deck for a lavish dinner buffet featuring chef-carved tenderloin, Cornish game hen, sea bass, and lamb. Local florist Koolman’s Flower Shop and Mosaic decorators worked with the Westin crew to create a beautiful ambiance for the event. After dinner, a deejay kept everyone dancing into the wee hours.
Caitlin and Jay continued their stay with the Westin, enjoying a wonderful honeymoon here.
