Rather than having their friends fly across the world for just a weekend, the couple decided to make a week of it, by asking their close friends to join them on their honeymoon – aka a Buddymoon. They rented a boat with 20 cabins and went island hoping throughout the Dalmatian Coast off Croatia.

For the wedding itself, the bride and groom wanted something modern and bright that reflected the setting. With lots of seaside touches, monochromatic blues and greens and an overall Mediterranean feel, they did just that.

For this celebration, we planned the trip itinerary, helped arrange flights and transporation, designed and planned the event, and coordinated excursions off the boat.
