Meet BlackDesti


Hi Desti + Bridefriend! 

I'm Omi, but I'm also known as BlackDesti because of my 1st blog (a public diary), Black Destination Bride - get it?…Black…Desti?!? 😉

I was lucky enough to experience the MAGIC of a destination wedding ...

...I call it, "The Wedding that Changed it All" because I had never seen a celebration so vibrant and filled with love. Traditional weddings never appealed to me. Being a "+1" to a destination wedding opened my eyes to a completely different experience, so when it was time for me to decide how to have my own wedding, it was a no-brainer: Desti was the way to go. Only, we had no idea how to make it happen. So I gathered as much information as possible, reached out to as many others who had been on the journey before me, journaling the whole way through...And it was a remarkable experience!

And now I help others do it too!

Hearing words can just hit home in ways that reading words cannot...the emotion, tone and connection can be lost or misunderstood on pages.

Just think  about it...if you had to choose one for the rest of your life, would you rather hear the words, “I LOVE YOU”, or read them?

Both are valuable, hey - I LOVE going back to my love letters from my husband and having those special moments, but there's something about hearing it come out of his mouth. 

And, I believe that same connection applies to learning , and I love meeting new people and talking...about destination wedding planning...

Sharing experiences, knowledge, and inspiration to support, educate and empower destination wedding hopefuls on
how to have the time of your life, while planning the best days of your life!
— Bridefriends Motto

So I started a podcast. 

The DESTI Guide to Destination Wedding Podcast and DESTITV are all about having the time of your life, while planning the best days for your life. 

Through this resource, I do my very best to help destination wedding hopefuls have the time of their life, planning the best days of their life...And I love EVERY second of it!
