    I apologize for the delay, still a little under the weather...

    We celebrated our wedding May 23, 2009 in Careyes, Mexico at the El Careyes Resort and San Mateo Catholic Church. We had a small wedding with approximately 40 guests.

    Pre Wedding:
    Westin in Puerto Vallarta - B+
    We were pleasantly surprised! This hotel has a lot of character, I can see why many brides choose this location for their weddings. It lends itself for some amazing photos. When we were in P.V. the hotel was fairly empty and unfortunately many of the pools were closed. But the grounds were ample and the rooms were clean, the beach was nice and it's close to downtown. The only downside (I just hate this in general) they charged for internet and gym usage.

    Costco & Sams Club - A
    We stopped at these stores for snacks and alcohol. Prices were competitive and we found everything we needed!

    Superior Tours Vallarta - A
    We had all of our guests picked up from the P.V. airport and transported to Careyes (since its a 2.5 hour drive) it was important to have a spacious, comfortable bus with a restroom. Our guests seemed to have a good time on the bus! And Astrid and Azael are fantastic and very accommodating!

      Thanks for the review! Your dress is sooooooo beautiful! Can you tell me/us who the designer is? It looks like Monique Lhullier Katarina?? I am looking for something just like that.
      So far 68 RSVP's and 56 people are booked to stay at the resort!

          The first thing I was going to write about was your dress, and it looks like the other girls agree. It's so, so gorgeous! I can't wait to see more of your pictures. Great review.
