Hi everyone. So my husband Adeit and I got married at Azul Sensatori on Nov 26. Here is a little review I hope you find helpful. We arrived late on Sunday. Everyone was checking in (with welcome drinks) and we had our own personal concierge check us in. We met one of the wedding coordinators and she gave us our appointment for 9am the next morning. We went to get some food at SPOON which was awesome and then hit up the mojito bar….also awesome. We went to the mojito bar often late night. Drinks were great but they did often run out of all the flavors. I didn’t mind at all, still lots to choose from and the guys behind the bar work so hard. My favorite was watermelon and grapefruit. We went to our appointment the next morning. Our main coordinator was not there (Janet) but we had some other lovely ladies go over everything with us. Unfortunately I don’t remember their names. They were very helpful and accommodating. They let us know that Adeit could pick up a key for his ‘grooms room’ the day before and got some swatch samples for runners for me to choose from. They let me know how to get my dress steamed and went over all other details. In the 3 days before the wedding we just hung out with our guests. We did have a welcome dinner at SPOON on night 2. This was wonderful. We had many staff waiting on us. Welcome champagne and very prompt service. We were very impressed by how polite and hard working all the staff was. Everyone raved about the food as well, especially the steak. I heard the steak was amazing everywhere. Day of the wedding we had to decide about venue. We were supposed to be on the beach for ceremony and cocktails and plaza zavaz for reception. The morning of it was sooo windy so I opted to have the ceremony on the rooftop garden, which was very nice. We still had the cocktail hour at palapa yoga. Although there was 0% chance of rain in the morning that percentage was creeping up throughout the day and so due to that at the wind I opted to have our reception in the ballroom. I still wish I could have had it outside as the ballroom was way too big for our party (32 ppl) but in the end it saved me from worrying about the weather. They still did a good job of setting it up and incorporating all my décor, although it was somewhat lost in such a big space…oh well. My 5 bridesmaids and I all got our hair and makeup done in the spa salon at 12 and we done my 2pm. We were all very impressed with the makeup and hair….both stayed all night. They brought us champagne and we were very comfortable. We then went back to my room, took a few pics along the way. We had another bottle of champagne in the room waiting for us. My step mom took some more pics and then the girls helped me into my dress (they sent someone from the wedding department to help with this too but we were fine). The photographer, Havier (Caribe) showed up right at 3 and did a great job of directing the pre ceremony shots. While this was happening, Janet called to ask if we needed anything and I asked for some scissors and some fruit, chips and guacamole. All were promptly delivered. My dad came, we got a few more good shots and then off we went. Before the ceremony they had asked us for 1 playlist with 4 songs. 1-mb gm walk, 2-my isle song, 3-signing (symbolic) song, 4-exit song. The wedding department was there to help us make sure the timing was right. My dad and I were waiting at the bottom of the stairs to come up and walk down the aisle and Berenice was waiting with us to coordinate this. Ceremony was great! I forgot my vows (I did have them memorized, because I was so emotional. Good thing my MOH had them in her bra….I recommend this J We left…pictures, pictures, pictures. The beach was very windy but we still got a few shots there. Then we went to our cocktail party. We missed most of the food by then but the food I did have was great (Italian appies). We had a full bar and everyone seemed happy. We then went to reception in the ballroom. The coordinators timed an entrance and song for us. They had a welcome drink ready for everyone. We all settled and the speeches and food right away. The food was amazing, drinks were flowing and there was lots of dancing. I don’t remember what time it was the Havier left but I believe he stayed late to get pics of our speeches which I am so grateful for. When we got back to the room we had rose petals, roses and a Jacuzzi bath drawn for us. Of course we fell right into bed. Breakfast delivered at 9am the next morning….it was really good. We had massages at 11 at the SKY massage. It was VERY windy and therefore kind of distracting (I was still blissed out cuz it was my honeymoon and I was in paradise) but I do suggest sticking to the spa if there is wind. Later on we had our candlelight dinner….a highlight for sure. We picked up our pics the day after and the link for our photobook was sent exactly one week after that. I have already picked all the ones I want and we should have it in the next 6 weeks. All in all I was very happy with Azul Sensatori. Especially Berenice Hernadez and her team in the wedding department. Although there was a wedding almost every day we were there I still felt special every time I walking into the office. They remembered me and I was always greeting with great big smiles and lots of assurance. My only ‘complaint’ (not even) is that I wish I could have picked a smaller indoor location for my reception but that is it. I know some criticism may have been helpful but I honestly have none. I think we all made a good choice picking this resort and we will definitely come back (adults only next time) when we can. Thanks so much for all the information and support I got through this site and good luck to all you ladies still awaiting your big day. Enjoy!!
my other pics aren't uploading. I will try to get the ones up with reception decor and hair and stuff...
there we go!!
PS: one little thing I forgot to mention....there are xmas decorations up right now. This doesn't really matter on the beach but in the rooftop garden, where we had our ceremony there are silver and blue xmas trees and decor in some of the pics which I didn't like. Just be warned if you don't want christmas themed wedding photos haha.
