We are back and have tons to tell you. Most of you if not all know about the drama that took place four days before we left for our wedding. Long story short we booked AS in 2009 and had paid in full and had 34 guest traveling and they call me the Friday before we left ( we flew out on wed.) and told us the resort was over booked and sold out. We talked with karisma, destination weddings, and our TA for the next 3 days trying to figure everything out. The bottom line was they were moving us whether we liked it or not. Highly upset, tears for days but i put on the happy face and headed to Mexico.
We arrive at AB on Wednesday afternoon and 4 couples arrived an hour ahead of us. They resort is nice but ladies they sat me down and told me they had to move me and some of my group again and immediately busted into tears and they were so sweet but boy was i devastated. They consoled me and promised me that everything was for the better and that now that i was at the resort they would do everything to make this the wedding event of my dreams.
The AB has updated rooms which were fabulous and every room had an awesome view. The updates were so modern and clean lined and we were happy with our swim-up suite the first night we were there. So the next morning we meet the managers and wedding coordinators. They were wonderful ladies (LOMAS) and they took me through the entire wedding details step by step.
Long story short.......Everything was beautiful. The resort moved me and 5 other guest rooms into Azul Villa Carola. It was AMAZING!!!!!! We moved family over to the villa that was there for the longest stay. We were worried about privacy but we had all the privacy we needed. The villa had huge master suits with private out door and indoor Jacuzzis, The bath room was almost as big as the regular junior suite at AS ( one couple was not moved to AB so they gave us entry into AS whenever we wanted during our stay to visit with them). The villa had two floors each fully equipped with full kitchens and living room plus one master suite and two bedrooms each with a private bathroom and patio space. The villa had its own main butler( MANUEL the sweetest guy ever) that handled everything! We had private 24 hr. security and maid service, room service and so much more. We lived like kings and queens.
If you want an intimate and private event this is the place. The wedding ceremony was on the beach in front of the villa. The beach was ten times better than AS at this spot. We had the reception on the back lawn of the villa. We had the areas to dance and party all night long. Without interfering with the other guest of the resort. we partied until 2 am. The bar staff stayed late, the head chef prepared the food on site in the main downstairs kitchen. The food was amazing! I just can go on and on but ladies they really did make my wedding everything i wanted and ten times more than i could have ever imagined. The photographer was so sweet and wonderful. MANY MANY thanks to Ivan Luckie! It was a fairy tale ending! As soon as I have pics I will post them. Thank you for your prayers and support ladies. It did all turn out to be better than i could have ever planned. My husbands daughter now my daughter.... AWWW had a ball. We were laughing and talking last night about how wonderful her private pool was and the tasty chocolate milkshakes Manuel brought her everyday at lunch!! we need to all go on a diet. I was very grateful and blessed. I did the diamond massage bridal package at AS because the spa at AB was not fully updated yet but it was amazing highly suggest that service. AS spa was superb. OH.... i call it a blessing because AS had 16 weddings during my stay. The Spa was on overloaded with brides and bridesmaids and grooms. So being moved to AB made my wedding very personal. We were the only wedding during our entire weeks stay. They put a private message in the front lobby for me and Ozzie everyday and AB put our wedding events on the resort itinerary so guest knew ahead of time which restaurants would be closed for private events and where to watch the wedding. So the entire resort was applauding and looked for us everyday. OK once i have pics i will explain more. Azul Beach and Azul Carola is an A++++++++++ in my book!
