The wedding day: early girls! Wow! Perfect day of your wedding with your special people. Take the day to soak in the beauty, relaxation and amazing food this place has to offer!
Getting ready in the bridal suite: yikes! Only bad part...no AC. It's a total sweat box. Sweating off my make up, hair curling...forget it. Rely on your natural beauty and natural hair (if it's straight or curly...don't try to change that) your wedding dress...try to keep as breezy as possible. It's literaly impossible to cool off. No air anywhere! ????
The boat ride: we had 87 people and besides the sea sick people it was awesome! We had an unusually turbulent ride out because of weather but in general cool experience.
The ceremony: breath taking set up...perfect! I was so worried about music and vows...Don't! They are professionals and it coasted through without a hitch. We had a friend marry us, no prob! Let them know they have a mic to hold, no ear piece or place to put their notes (hands full)
Pictures: I tried to stay with the minimum package to save money, but then you have to buy the pics for $350 after the fact if you want more than 40. so just know it's going to cost you ???? Id make a list of pictures you want and give it to the photographer (have one with you that day) it goes fast and you are rushing to get to the party. Believe it or not...we have no pics of the groom and his best man. You need a guideline reminder. Also, do what feels good and natural to you. She had us staring off into the distance for a lot, and while the setting is stunning...it feels silly to see us lookin off into nowhere. Therefore, a lot of beautiful ones are funny to us. Like we are trying to do 'blue steel' (zoo lander reference!)
Dinner: BEST.FOOD.EVER! For a group of crazy Cajuns to love the food...they nailed it. Drinks were flowing! They played every song we asked for! Speeches went off great! We trimmed time down from cocktail hour, dinner and cake stuff to be able to party more and it was great!
Dance party: it was the best booty shaking dance party ever! The DJ was great about playing every song we wanted. We gave him an extensive list and he delivered! Hot? Sure! Did we care? Nope. A little trip in the water and some ice down the wedding dress...good to go!
Lanturns: we did a special group of only people with bdays or anniversaries within the week we were there. It was a perfect touch, very sentimental ❤️
Boat ride back: epic! We wanted more time! Music, margaritas, the wind in your hair...nailed it!
All in all: all of our guests and my husband and I say 'BEST WEDDING EVER'. We laughed, we cried, we danced, we loved ❤️ Don't miss out!
Afterward, the photographer took a photo of the entire group (can't wait to see it! The photos take about a month to receive, so any day now!). Then, family photos and bridal party photos happened. The photographer and her assistant were a joy to work with. They obviously love their jobs. Next, the guests headed up to the restaurant for hors d'oeuvres and cocktails while the groom and I got our photos done. Jessica came to us when the photos were done and got us ready for the introduction of Mr. and Mrs.! This kicked off the start of dinner. During dinner, which was DELICIOUS, toasts and speeches were made. The ambience and mood of the room was fantastic. Rustic, yet elegant, warm, and full of love. Guests were raving about the food. The only problem was that there was SO much, it was impossible to try everything! Jessica made sure that guests allergies were accommodated (no shellfish). After dinner, we headed down to the beach for our first dances. After the traditional first dance, mother-son, and father-daughter dances, the party got started! We'd provided the DJ with a list of music, which he stuck to. He threw in a couple of his own tunes and, man oh man, did he know what he was doing! The crowd quite literally did NOT stop dancing! We had guests from 25 to 80 years old and everyone had a blast! It was sad when the announcement was made to move back to the catamaran for the return trip.
Jessica and her staff had moved all the bridal suite stuff (clothes and supplies we'd brought for earlier in the day). A few guests helped carry it all to the boat and then the party continued! We opted to do the bouquet toss and garter toss on the boat, which was a great decision. It meant more dance time at Las Caletas, and was a pretty unique twist to an old tradition. When the groomsmen were carrying on about how long it took my husband to remove the garter, he pointed out he had to do it on a moving boat!
Once back at the marina, our shuttle was waiting to take us back to our resort. Guests were singing and having a great time on the bus ride.
Quite literally, from start to finish, our wedding day was absolutely perfect. Since getting back to "real life", many people have asked us how the wedding was. I have said to everyone that it could not have been better. I mean that wholeheartedly. Nothing about our wedding day could have been better nor would we have changed anything (unless it would be possible to have it never end!).
Adventure Weddings at Las Caletas gets two thumbs up, 5 stars, 100%, an A+, every perfect rating there is. The staff, the location, the decoration, the food, the music, the ambience... it was all perfect. What an amazing experience. We will remember it forever and, quite possibly, be returning to renew our vows 10 years from now (any excuse to go back!).
