After getting engaged we started to look around at what options there were for a wedding. We started to look in our own city, but could not find a venue that we liked. Additionally, we found it slightly unfair to my family since all them would have to fly in. We knew that ideally we wanted a beach wedding and started to look at Puerto Vallarta based off a recommendation from my mother. My now wife came across Adventure Wedding’s website and after reading several reviews and talking to our families we decided to go with them. It was definitely a unique experience since neither of us had ever been to Puerto Vallarta or had used any of Adventure’s services before, but the whole experience went wonderfully. Because I am from Mexico and speak Spanish fluently, I handled all of the communication. However, everyone that I interacted at Adventure speaks English. We set a date for Oct. 2013 back in June of 2012 and over the whole year and a half had steady interaction with Blanca, our wedding coordinator. She was fantastic, always prompt to respond my emails and easy to talk to if ever I had to call her on the phone. Given that we had so much time to prepare, and because the bulk of the decisions and choices were made on the three months before the actual event, when we actually got to PV and had our tour of Las Caletas, there were minimal details to clear up. I had some concerns about the weather, but Blanca walked me through what the contingency plan was (thankfully it did not rain). The location is beautiful; once we arrived there we knew we had made the right choice. On our wedding day, I took my then fiancée, her sister, mother and niece to the marine terminal where Blanca was waiting for them. They spent the day at the wedding suite, each got a massage, had lunch and got ready for the wedding. We used Adventure’s hairdresser and make-up artist and all the girls were really happy with how they turned out. We did test hair and makeup at home and took plenty of pictures so the hair and makeup artist knew exactly what the look that my now wife was going for. Since all my guests were staying at the same hotel, I arranged transport with Adventure to have a bus pick us up and take us to the marine terminal. The bus was exactly on time and so was the cruise coordinator. Everyone enjoyed the boat ride to Las Caletas. Blanca and her team did an amazing job of matching our wedding colors to the flowers and other decorations. The ceremony was beautiful. The photography session with Eder was great. All my guests complemented me on how delicious the dinner was. The cake was really pretty and really good (we chose chocolate). The DJ was fantastic. We also chose to have drummers/fire dancers which were a lot of fun and enjoyed by all the guests.
We are both extremely happy with how our wedding turned out. I want to point out how much care Blanca and everyone at Adventure took to make sure all the small details we asked for were taken care of and how hard they worked to make sure we enjoyed our time and not have to worry. Small things, like the DJ only playing songs we ask for or Blanca finding a babysitter (who was incredible) for my now wife’s baby niece. They made sure everything was taken care. We would highly recommend Adventure Weddings, specifically for a busy couple who does not have time to take care of the details themselves.
