    My fianc© and I are marrying on October 14, 2008 in Puerto Vallarta. Upon the suggestion of our planner Lisa Vorce (who is absolutely fab, but more on that later) we decided on the Hacienda San Angel in the Romantic Zone of PV. This place is exquisite and the perfect place for our "elopement". Why the quotes? Well, all of our friends and family know our plans, so no secret there! And, we're not planning the traditional elopment. I'm working with my planner to create an event that is intimate and stunning as it is memorable. Check out the details and let me know what you think!

    Wedding Location:
    Hacienda San Angel
    It's rich in history as well as full of old Hollywood romance. It's former owner Richard Burton gave it as a Click the image to open in full size.

    *Hair Inspiration:
    Not sure yet how I'll wear my hair, but I have my inspiration. I think something soft and romantic will work well back to my dress.

    Honeymoon: Hacienda De San Antonio
    Some go to the beach, we're going to a volcano, sort of! An absolutely stunning property, it sits within the valley of a live (non-eruptive) volcano. We're going during their "green" (nice word for rainy) season to save on cost. Fortunately for us it's the very end so rain is unlikely!
    *Money saving tip: When booking I noticed we'd be arriving on the day the special expired so I contacted the hotel to see if the dates were flexible. After providing them with our dates they were willing to extend the lower rate to us since we are arriving on a weekday and staying into the next week.

        Looks amazing! I've heard of Hacienda San Angel - I think the curator of the Botanical Gardens recommended it but I could be wrong... regardless, it looks beautiful :) Do you have pics of the rooms?

        We had 24 people attend our wedding in Las Caletas, Mexico on May 24th, 2009!

        We all stayed at The Marriott in P.V., and Honeymooned at The Royal Plantation in Ochos Rios, Jamaica!

          Thanks for the great feedback ladies! Here are some pics of the rooms. The hacienda is comprised of four homes all of which are uniquely decorated with Mexican antiques. I think it will be a very romantic and moving place for us to exchange our vows. When I go down for the site visit I'll be sure to share pics. Enjoy!

          Also, if your interested in seeing more of the property, there are links to the site within my posting.

                  Thanks again. We haven't figured out which room we will be in yet since we're still waiting for a recommendation from the owner. We're having our wedding dinner on the patio of our room. The hotel has a great view of the nightly fireworks so we're waiting for her to tell us which room as the best view. They also have a mariachi band each night which should be fun and great for pictures! I'll let you know how things progress!
