Yay! Wedding Plans, Puerto Vallarta 10.14.08

Recommended Posts

My fiancé 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 Valentine's gift to his wife Susan Hunt. Yet, she wasn't this first to receive a home from him in PV. Estranged wife Elizabeth Taylor has that honor! We will have our ceremony in the newly built chapel and dine on the private patio of our wedding suite overlooking the bay. It also provides perfect viewing of the nightly fireworks!

Wedding Planner: Oh! How Charming by Lisa Vorce

From the moment we spoke I knew she would be a friend for life but after getting into her immensely creative brain I knew she had to be my planner! Check out her site, it's absolutely beautiful!

 

Wedding Photography: Aaron Delessie. A good friend and peer of Lisa's, I love his style. While you're there, check out his blog.

 

Wedding Website: Blogger

Via my blog I'm able to keep my family and friends abreast of my planning process but we will also use it to share pictures and stories with them during our honeymoon. Also, via my blog I've met a lot of great brides and have helped a few with wedding ideas.

*I chose to create a blog because I wasn't happy with the personal wedding websites available. I did all of the creative myself in Photoshop and use the tutorials on blogger to get myself up and going. I had very little Photoshop experience prior to doing this and taught myself along the way, so it can definitely be done. Feel free to PM me for assistance with starting your own blog!

Hair& Makeup: Franc Gole Salon

Affordable and accommodating and go figure, they actually have a gallery of brides on their website. Can anyone say "Hallelujah"?

*Makeup Inspiration: I really love the new Bronzed Pink & Nude looks from Bobbi Brown. Chat live with an artist to tailor the look to your complexion.

*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.

Wedding Gown: The Bridal Garden, located in Kirkland, WA. I purchased my Monique Lhuillier gown off the rack at their annual sample sale and I couldn't be any more happier with my purchase. It's really not as "Solid Gold" as it looks here. It's a very faint champagne color.

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?

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. cheesy.gif

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!

    • Hundreds of years before, the basic jewellery were made out of seashells and bone, trees and animal skin. In the ancient times, the Egyptian jewellery first came into existence. Egyptian culture inhabited technology, gemstones, and precious metals early in comparison to other places. They were inspired by the culture of royalty and aristocracy which led to thinking noble like having a deep appreciation for luxury. This made them create impactful jewellery and leading trends. Copper was the first metal that came into existence through which we as humans got so many jewellery items.  However, the major focus on jewellery came when they discovered gold. This allowed the Egyptian to rule as the first jewellery maker. The ancient Egyptians valued adornment and were worn by both men and women.  Material and metals: The plethora of material which was used in the making of this Egyptian jewellery was basically gold and silver. Egyptian has mostly attracted towards gold and the availability of silver was less in Egypt as compared to any other place. The colour variation was due to the mixing of elements such as alloys like copper, iron, silver into gold.  Charm jewellery: It was then also an interesting concept to have charms in necklaces, bracelets and other jewellery items. It’s just they were made up of stones and precious or semi-precious jewellery. In this picture above the necklace is adorned with precious stones in different charms shapes. Gem and stones: The more royal pieces of Egyptian jewellery were adorned with the precious jewellery items. The gemstones were semi-precious stones, precious stones are other various gems. The most prized stone were lapis lazuli, rock crystal, and pearls. Emeralds were also found in these jewellery pieces. These were made from ground quartz and then molded into expensive gemstones. They are also used as charm jewellery when molded or carved in different shapes.
    • Congratulations! Where you are you getting married? 
    • It’s my wedding five months from now and we badly need ideas because everyone’s mind is not working right now and I, as the bride, cannot even think of what I really want to have on my wedding day. I want something simple yet unique. Something that suits for Colombian women and bride. Can you help me out with this? Thanks! I will really appreciate your comments!
    • I know it is really tough job to get everything at best cost. I would like to suggest to contact local wedding planner or decorators to get the quotes. It will take some time but by comparing different quotes you will get the best package.
