#DaTunUp2017, the perfect two-day destination wedding event hosted at the Ritz Carlton Abama, in Tenerife- the largest of the Canary Islands in Spain, with its mild climate and stunning panoramic Atlantic Ocean views from the cliffs. When Dami and Tunde decided to get married in Tenerife, it was because they wanted to share a few days with their closest friends and relatives in a beautiful location by the ocean which allowed people to relax and have fun, eat delicious food and create memories that will last a lifetime and this was certainly accomplished at the Ritz Carlton Abama.

The wedding group had fun dancing, and culminating the colorful night with breathtaking fireworks.
