Thinking of planning a wedding away? Let us introduce you to Tara Soloway, expert extraordinaire on the subject of destination celebrations who offers much insight into planning a party in a dream location. Soloway is the co-founder of LUXE Destination Weddings, a Toronto-based, full-service boutique destination wedding and event planning company, who (with her business partner and husband Matt) has planned unforgettable celebrations for couples in amazing locations all over the world for the past 10 years.
Soloway says the beginnings of her destination wedding expertise happened when she and Matt were planning their own nuptials in Jamaica. The couple found a lack of info and services available to them on the subject and decided to fill the void by creating their own company designed to bring couples' wedding dreams to life, no matter how intricate or grand and without couples having to be involved at every turn. We chatted with Soloway to find out what makes a destination wedding so special, how the process of putting together such an event unfolds and why it is the perfect wedding party!

: Can you share details one of your favourite destination weddings you have planned and what made it so special?
TS: " That would most definitely be my brother-in-law's destination wedding in Mexico. Getting to experience all that we do with my family was nothing short of amazing. Their ceremony was filled with singing, spiritual readings and lots of love-and even an "unplanned" downpour followed by a beautiful rainbow. It was just so meaningful and thoughtful. To me, it's all about the personal touches that your guests take away as memories."
