Imagine the calm and relaxation of sailing the Caribbean Sea with your closest friends and family: azure, blue waters so clear you can see sea life swimming next to the boat, a slight saltwater breeze rustling your clothes and hair (just enough so you’re not overly hot), reggae background music, a local crew of Belizeans who grew up on the water and steer the boat with the biggest smiles, and a couple Belikins or local rum drinks to sip on.
Now, imagine that’s the setting for your wedding instead of a massive group of 200 people to talk to and entertain, running around making sure all the details are perfect, and feeling like you barely had time to eat or talk to the people you love most.
When you choose Belize as your destination wedding, we prefer the slow life and an easy breezy wedding day on a sailboat. And, that’s exactly what Bradley and Destinie got when they planned a sailboat wedding in Belize.

Destinie and Bradley chose to come to Belize and share their special day with their closest family members: only Destinie’s son (who was the ring bear) and their parents were invited to embark on their sailboat wedding day.
Dulce Belize Weddings helped Destinie and Bradley with their special sailboat wedding by chartering the 40-foot Sirena Azul sailboat owned by Blue Tang Inn on Ambergris Caye, Belize. The Sirena Azul is not just any sailboat: it’s a very special boat that was handcrafted in the fishing village of Sarteneja, Belize by well-known father and son boat builders, Leonardo and Beto Munos. It’s made out of hardwoods found in Belize, including Santa Maria, Bullet and Mahogany. The boat was built to keep the traditional style of Belizean fishing boats but includes a diesel inboard engine, bathroom and plumbing fixtures, and modern window hardware and lighting.
The wedding ceremony was held just in time for sunset, and the pictures show just how stunning and relaxing this setting can be for an intimate wedding. We were thrilled to be part of Destinie and Bradley’s special day with their closest loved ones… and Dulce Belize Weddings took part in the festivities by toasting champagne, sharing rum punches, and dancing to music as the sailboat cruised back to port on Ambergris Caye. Congratulations Destinie and Bradley! Thanks for letting us be a part of your sailboat wedding in Belize.
