We had 100 guest and they were able to manage and coordinate everything in the best possible way.
Feed back from our guest, best wedding ever! :)
Blanca and las caletas team thank you for creating such a wonderful time for us.
Words can not describe how absolutely perfect our wedding was. Everything from the communication with Dennise months before the wedding to the boat ride back from Las Caletas -- it was completely flawless. Also -- not that this matters in general but for any other same sex couples wondering if this place is gay friendly -- ABSOLUTELY! We are a same sex couple and not once did we feel different or like this was an "alternative" wedding.
I'll begin with our wedding coordinator. Dennise was wonderful to work with. She was incredibly accommodating and very helpful. She answered all of our questions in a very timely fashion and went above and beyond to make sure we had the wedding of our dreams. We had a few decor ideas (center pieces etc) that ended up falling through and Dennise not only found a solution, but legit, made it better than what we originally envisioned. She met with us a couple of days before the wedding at our resort and was so warm and friendly -- felt like I was just chatting with a friend. She brought us a list of things to bring as well as a very detailed timeline for the wedding day. We brought a bunch of stuff that needed to be set up like favors, picture frames, bird cages, polaroid camera station and guest book and Dennise took everything with her that same day which made the day of the wedding much easier for us, transportation wise.
The wedding day went so incredibly smoothly... My wife and I aren't very traditional so we wanted to get ready together. In total there were 5 of us that went to Las Caletas that morning. I was lucky enough to have a cousin who does hair and make-up so I can't speak to the services offered there. We took a cab to the marina and then a boat ride over to Las Caletas. For some reason, I always figured the boat ride would be just the wedding people and our coordinator but it was on a Vallarta Adventures boat/catamaran with other tourists. They had coffee, juice, fruit and pastries on the boat ride there as well as entertainment. It was a lot of fun and we got to see a few dolphins swimming alongside the boat!
The hike up to the bridal suite wasn't as bad as I had read but it is a bit of a hike. We were going to go back down to snorkel and swim a bit but we were greeted with a breakfast taco station and mimosas and one thing led to another and instead we ended up relaxing by the hot tub and having a few cocktails, don't judge us! :)Like I said before, my cousin did our hair and make-up so we put on some music, had some drinks and took all morning to calmly get ready. The staff was so incredibly nice and attentive. They kept checking in to make sure we were all good.
We had our own photographer, one of my cousins is a photography student and she wanted to photograph the wedding for us as her gift. We took a few pictures before the ceremony and were hoping to take more wedding party pictures during the cocktail hour. Unfortunately, since we had a fairly large wedding (80ish people), everyone wanted a picture with us during cocktail hour. I think that if we had gone with their photographer things may have been a bit more organized but it turned out fine... Since we did have our own photographer who traveled with us, we were able to do a trash the dress shoot at the beach the next day and took more bridal party pictures.
We had Chuy, the minister for Las Caletas do the ceremony. He was so wonderful and open to any suggestions. A cousin of mine who is a pastor wanted to do a reading and Chuy was so great about last minute changes to the ceremony. He came up and introduced himself while we were getting ready and he made us feel very comfortable.
When it was finally time for the ceremony we came down from the suite and Dennise had everyone lined up and ready to go... the rest of the night went by in a blur. It was so incredibly perfect. The decorations were more beautiful than we could have imagined. The food was UNBELIEVABLY good. Everyone raved about the food. The cake was delicious. We ended up using their DJ and he knew exactly what to play in order to get the dance floor packed. Honestly, words can't describe how perfect it all went. And just how beautiful everything was. The sunset, the candles, the ocean, friends and family. Cliche to say, I know, but legit -- most beautiful and perfect day of our lives.
We decided to do the lantern ceremony and it was wonderful. All of our guests were in awe and so excited to participate. We danced and drank and had the best time ever and right when we thought the party was ending - Boom! Open bar and DJ on the boat ride back. I won't lie, I was a bit tipsy and worried that we'd forget something but the staff and Dennise had everything packed and ready to go.
It's been a few months and still friends and family are raving about it. Honestly, I would recommend Las Caletas to anyone who's planning a destination wedding. Here are a few pictures -- and seriously, they don't do it justice.

The morning of my wedding day, it was overcast and there was a slight drizzle. Nothing too concerning, but it the 5 years that I had been going to Puerto Vallarta in November, I had never seen it rain! I was just hoping that the sun would make an appearance in time for the ceremony. My wish came true, and by afternoon it had stopped drizzling and there was an amazing sunset!
I went over to LC in the morning with my mom and sister-in-law. The boat staff was great! They took care of my dress and our bags so we didn’t have to worry about them. Once we got to LC, they carried all of our stuff up to the bridal casita for us. It was quite a hike, so not having to worry about our belongings was nice. We spent the day resting in the casita and enjoyed welcome champagne, fruit and tacos. Lunch was delicious!
After lunch, it was time for hair and makeup. I brought pictures of what I had in mind for both hair and makeup. I loved the end result! My mom also did hair and makeup and all the guests kept raving how great she looked. He did an amazing job!
My now husband, came over to LC with my brother, a few friends and our photographers around 2pm. They met in La Boca and took a speed boat before the guests arrived so we could do pictures before the ceremony. Huge shout-out to Photoshoots Vallarta!!! Evgenia and Stephanie did an AMAZING job! I have looked at our pictures a hundred times! I highly recommend them!
The ceremony/reception was gorgeous and exactly what I pictured! There were candles everywhere and it was the most beautiful and romantic setting I have ever seen! Dennise added a few touches here and there and she did an amazing job! She truly has a great eye for detail! She was on top of everything and made sure we flowed smoothly from one thing to the next.
Dinner was so good! My husband and I ate so much that we didn’t even make it to the dessert table. But all of our guests said the desserts were amazing as well! The staff was so attentive, we never had an empty drink in our hands and any request we had they made sure it happened!
If you are contemplating on whether or not you should hire the fire dancers, let me make that decision for you… DO IT!!!!!! It was one of the most awesome experiences I have ever had! Throughout the year long planning process, my now husband kept telling me not to get the fire dancers. It would be a waste of money and why do we need to see a guy come out and twirl some fire? After the show, he turned to me and gave me the first “you were right” of our marriage! His exact words, “you should have told me they were Ninjas with fire!”
At the end of the night, Dennise and the staff had all of our stuff brought down from the bridal casita and ready to go. The boat ride back to PV was a continuation of the party. They had music going and were still serving drinks.
This really was the best night of my life! I can’t imagine it happening any other way and my husband and I would do it all over again in a heartbeat! Thank you so, so much to everyone that was involved in making this night happen! We can’t wait to come back to Las Caletas and revisit this magical experience!
It POURED the morning of our wedding. IN NOVEMBER!!! with 1/2 rainy day on record for the month!!!!! It was down pouring when I woke up. I called Blanca at 6 am on her cell to see what the plans were for the boat ride over in such terrible weather. SHE ANSWERED! AT 6AM! She assured me it would be fine and we would board the boat as usual. Needless to say, I was still freaking out when my sisters, my mom and I boarded the boat alone in a storm. All tours were cancelled due to weather. We sat on the lower deck of the boat with the flaps down while I hyperventilated and prayed for the sun to come out.
Long story short, the weather slowly improved and the sun was out before my future husband and our guests boarded the boat. :) Wedding miracle. Moving on...because of the weather, I was a mess in the morning...forgetting things like my sandals and a special locket my mom gave me for my bouquet. Blanca called my fiancé and he had them for the ceremony. The makeup artist forgot eyelash glue and Blanca had some. My mom has arthritis and had trouble climbing the steep stairs to the casita and Blanca had a staff member sweetly help my mom make the trip. And this is before the wedding! LOL
EVERY SINGLE DETAIL was done beautifully and EXACTLY like I would have done it myself. Every request, from a specialty horchata cocktail and plain cheese quesadillas at cocktail hour, sparklers during our first dance and homemade churros as we boarded the boat, Blanca made it all happen. She went above and beyond--We didn't pay for petals on the ceremony aisle, but they were there. All of our bags were organized and brought down for us at the end of the night so we didn't forget anything. Blanca packed up all of our decorations and had them ready to go. Blanca kept the night flowing perfectly without a hitch. Every time I went over to check when something was supposed to happen, she was one step ahead of me. I had nothing to worry about and I always worry. I didn't have to take care of anything. I just spent the night dancing and having fun with my guests. Blanca, if you are reading this...I cannot begin to thank you for everything. You were incredible. It was such a pleasure.
The staff was also fantastic!! They brought us cold towels when we got hot on the dance floor. Our drinks were never empty and EVERYONE was SOOOOOO NICE! From the time they stand on the edge waving and welcoming your guests to the moment they are helping your intoxicated guests safely board the boat, the service is impeccable.
Our guests will not stop raving about our wedding. I just received our wedding video from Sandra (Vallarta Adventures Video) which is amazing! If you need a videographer, use Sandra. She is professional, sweet and very talented. Watching the video just reminded me of how wonderful everything really was.
Ladies, do yourself a favor. Get married at Las Caletas. You won't be sorry...in fact, you'll be the happiest you've ever been! :)
bouquet which I loved! Set up. I paid for the two tiki torches with flowers (15$ each) that are at the front with the chuppa but the other tiki torches without flowers along the beach were included. Also he table is usually under the chuppa but I didn't want it in pictures so we put it to the side. Seating chart! Our cake. We got the smallest one just for the "cutting of the cake". Dance floor set up. In this pic ypu can also see the two guest tables that we had to include outside from the covered area for the dinner. This is because we had 78 guests. It still worked out well and the guests at that table actually preferred it out there...specially the smokers. Fire dancers which are a must! Sky lanterns. We brought these down ourselves.
