Some wedding destinations can be so chic, so coordinated, so consummate, so lovey-dovey, so match-make-y, so modern marriage-y. Travel becomes a packaged deal with the wedding itself. Why not have a lovers’ getaway – taking some time to enter the magical world of the imaginary made actual?

The Cove is such a place. It’s a place with the blue water of the Caribbean and soft sand twinkling white as the stars in the midnight sky. It feels as if the stars aligned, and the sand was set in preparation for the ceremony of a union of souls.
