Hello

 

I just got back from my wedding and honeymoon and thought I would give a little review, our wedding took place May 26th 2012 at Las Caletas, hope this helps :)

 

Like others I too started out with Kelley as my coordinator and was sad to see her go, I then began to work with both Denise and Annie and they seemed to pick things up right where we left off so the transition was very smooth. Denise was wonderful with communication, she provided very clear answers to all my questions and emails. We met in the lobby of the Barcelo two days before the wedding, I was able to hand off all of my items I had brought like the guest book, seating cards, lanterns, lighters etc. Denise had a detailed time line of how the day would go, information on what to bring/wear. She made it so easy that at that point all I had to worry about was what time to be at the marina and what time the boys had to be in Boca to catch a water taxi.

 

Annie met us at the Marina to go over to Las Caletas, I was amazed at how professional and talented the workers at Vallarta Adventures were, we were able to sign up for massages and had access to many activities through out the day. The casita was amazing, champagne and fresh fruit were waiting for us when we arrived. Annie and all of the staff were very attentive, if there was anything that we needed it was taken care of immediately. The woman to do our hair and makeup was there waiting for us as soon as we got done eating lunch. I think she was actually a little early but it worked out great because we had more time to do pictures with the photographer before the other guests got there. Our photographer was Paulina Ulloa who I cannot say enough good things about her and her amazing team.

 

The wedding decorations looked amazing! the flowers turned out better than I ever could have hoped for and everything ran perfectly. The DJ played all of the songs that I had picked perfectly and the ceremony went beautifully.

 

Dinner was incredible!!! I still think about the food! Emilio our MC and Denise kept things moving throughout the evening with speeches and the cutting of the cake. We chose to have a tequila bar which the staff set up down near the dance floor with a staff member there to pour the shots. This was a hit! I was amazed at what a great job they did, I had no idea it would be such a focal point of the evening. We had fire lanterns which it must have taken Denise forever to set all 30 of these up. When it came time to light them Denise was running around helping everyone while Emilio was announcing how to do it over the microphone and helping as well. Once again I just have to say the staff is incredible, so attentive and sweet! We also surprised all of our guests with the fire dancers which was well worth it!!

 

When it came time to leave, Denise had all of our things packed up and ready to go. My guests helped take things back to the boat and it took no time at all. If anything we were just sad that we had to leave but to boat ride back did not disappoint. The music was perfect and the drinks were still flowing!

 

I had heard it before in other reviews but did not truly appreciate until I experienced it, Las Caletas is magical!! My husband and I could not be happier with the way things went and we continue to hear from all of our guests what an amazing wedding it was.

Thanks for sharing! Our wedding is still 7 months away and your review made me so excited!

I have a couple of questions: did the tequila bar near the dance floor cost more? And was your photographer one of the VA photographers or did you hire her seperately?

I'm excited for you both!! It was beyond amazing, they do an incredible job! Per our contract as long as we provided the tequila, the tequila bar was included. I know a few things have changed some fees increased and others decreased just check with your WC. Our photographer was not one from VA, although I have heard they are good. We used Paulina Ulloa and she was amazing!! So artistic and really great to work with. Las Caletas is beautiful and whoever you decide to go with the pictures will turn out great.

Your review has got me so excited for my own wedding in November. It sounds like your day was beyond perfect :) Two questions:

1) You mention the boys took a water taxi from Boca. Did you have them come over to take pictures before the ceremony and did it cost extra for their transportation?

2) We are also staying at the Barcelo. What was your impression of the resort and did you do a welcome or rehersal dinner there?

Thanks so much for sharing!
