So I have always dreamed of getting married on the beach and my husband wanted to get married in Mexico because that is where his parents were married. When we first starting looking at different resorts in PV, I actually was sad about getting married in Mexico. I didn't get the happiness feeling I wanted about planning my wedding and all the fun that goes into it. We were looking for venues in December for a June wedding and during this time they had the worst rain storms ever for that time of year. My soon to be sister-in law told me about adventure weddings so we gave them a call. Blanca came all the way out to their house in the horrible rain storm just to meet with us and show us the slide show. The pictures were so beautiful and her energy was what I was looking for. She sold me right then on Adventure weddings.
The planning was fun and easy. I would send her pictures of the bouquets I wanted, the colors I wanted etc. The DJ they offered was great and sent us a VERY long list of songs to choose from for the whole day. It was fun and actually felt like I was a part of it even though I wasn't actually there. They included everything so it is very easy and stress free. I brought little extras like ribbon to wrap on the candle votives, picture frames to set out by the cake table, etc. On the day of they set out everything for me and I didn't have to worry about a thing.
A few days before our wedding we got to take a boat over to see the venue, the bridal suite and talk with the DJ. Blanca also showed us the linens and discussed how the day would go. Then we got to enjoy the day activities and relax. We were so happy about everything.
On our wedding day we headed over about 8am. We got to snorkel and SUP before heading up to the bridal suite to get ready. What bride gets to swim and snorkel on their wedding day?? I am a HUGE ocean lover so this was perfect for me! It was relaxing and fun. It was a fun time to spend with my mom and girls. We headed up to the suite for lunch and showers and then the hair and make up people arrived. They have some couches and a bed in the suite so you can relax, and take a quick nap if you want before getting ready. We had the groom and groomsmen come over earlier than the guests so we could take pictures. This worked out well because they arrived about 3pm and I was able to get first look pictures as well as pictures with my dad.
The only thing that stressed me out that day was the makeup person. I am not sure he fully understood what I wanted and I wasn't 100% happy with how my makeup turned out. I was told he was going to use airbrush makeup, which I was happy about since it is so humid in June, but in the end he never did and put what felt like concealer all over my face. It was rub off my nose every time I would kiss my husband that day so I have a few pictures where my nose is red.
The wedding was perfect, almost like a scene in a movie. We had the ceremony, dinner and then we started dancing. The food was amazing, I wish I had time to actually eat more but we were talking with all of our guests. I heard from so many that there were so many choices and everything was so good. We wanted to do the sky lanterns as our send off before leaving the island but about 830pm we could tell it was going to rain so we decided to do them right then. The staff had the lanterns ready for everyone right away. About 30 minutes later, the rain came. It was a down pour and everyone embraced the rain and we stayed dancing on the dance floor for about an hour. It was so fun. I still think about it and wish we could re-live it again.
I highly recommend Adventure Weddings and Blanca!!!
