We got married at Martoca on Sunday, April 29th and let me just say - this venue is BEAUTIFUL. Absolutely stunning!!! Our wedding group stayed at Dreams Villamagna (which was fabulous for us, absolutely perfect for a wedding group), but we didn't want to get married at a resort because we wanted a more private event. This was a GORGEOUS venue on a much more private beach, and every single one of our guests had a fabulous time. If we had to do it all over again, we would go straight back to Martoca!!
If you're looking for a fun, romantic, affordable, and beautiful place to get married... this is it! A few pictures are below, I tried to pick ones that showed off the location. (I have a few more on a previous post: http://www.bestdestinationwedding.com/t/1528/list-of-photographers-in-the-pv-area/60#post_1769386) A big hats off to Kelley Kahrhoff, aka the world's best wedding planner, Karla Benitez, our unbelievable photographer, Dan Dimov @ Macmex Photography and Videography for our crazy cool video, and Jimmy and everyone at Martoca!! Every single moment was of our week in Puerto Vallarta perfect. :o)
Our guestbook and placecards set up at the entrance, where our guests were treated to white sangria.
The beautiful view from the property, where my girls and I took our pictures before the guests arrived.
The bridal suite, with a nice frosty A/C unit. :o)
Martoca has beautiful flowers and gardens, I didn't get any bridal portraits done in my hometown so I did them here.

We opted to get married on the beach instead of on the lawn, which I am REALLY happy that we did in retrospect.
The chuppah with the wedding party on the beach.

MAKE SURE YOU TAKE PICTURES ON THE BEACH!! They turn out beautifully!!
There is a really nice garden area that our families took pictures at (below), but just a word of advice: a lot of small palm leaves had fallen on the grass and could be seen in our photos, especially ones of the entire family that we printed out and sent to them. It took me ten times as long to photoshop the leaves off of the grass as it would have taken one of us to go, "Hey, let's pick up these 15 unsightly leaves before we take pictures." This is the unedited version of one of the photos, and you can see one of the leaves behind my Dad's leg.
Table setup. What a view!!
The white lounge furniture that was available during our cocktail hour was the best. Also, a few guests took breaks over there because it was BEHIND the speakers and was quieter if they needed a break from the mts mts mts mts...
We opted to do firedancers, who did a performance on the dancefloor.
