Cool pictures! Thank you. This will help all brides!! I am Jimmy by the way,haha. The only thing is that the first pic is the service entrance. Sorry. The main entrance has the plants covering up the fence all the way and it is the smaller of the copper gates. Just fyi. How is your wedding planning going? Thank you for all your pictures. I wish I were such a good technical person. Muchas gracias amigas and welcome!

Sorry for the large pics! 

 

Our guests were greeted with Margaritas as we walked in...also had our Mariachi band playing as they open the gates to let us in.  It was breath taking

I don't think there was anything that I asked of Jimmy or Odette (our coordinator) that they weren't able to get for me at a reasonable price!  We chose to have Mariachi's for our cocktail hour along with different flavors of Margaritas and passed appetizers (there is a picture of one on a blue plate).  I had pashminas as one of our favors on every other chair for the female guests (almost every single person did use them)  we also had maracas made to match our calla lily theme.

 

We took photos on the beach during cocktail hour and right up until sunset.  When it was time Odette came and got us and gathered the bridal party for our grand entrance. After that we all were seated and dinner was served we chose a plated dinner not buffet.  It was truly amazing!! My husband has food allergies which they accommodated for and his food was also Delicious.  During dinner we had fire dancers perform towards the end (definitely a nice surprise for our guests)

 

Odette kept us on schedule for the cake cutting, first dances, garter toss, bouquet toss. 

 

Our guests raved about the service.  The waiters were friendly and prompt.  I don't think anyone had an empty glass all night.  The waiters brought everyone their drinks instead of going up to a bar to get drinks.

 

As our first dance ended we had fireworks go off.  I was the only one who know this would be happening.  Many people saw them being set up and caught on but it was still a great touch.

 

We also had a late night taco stand brought out.  The tacos were great and everyone was happy to get some more food.

 

I truly had the wedding of my dreams.  Every second was wonderful and I wish I could relive the day again. 

 

Odette made everything run smoothly.  She came to my hotel two days before the wedding when I had my hair trial and supervised that (she even helped me vocalize what I didn't like about my hair when I couldn't put it into words)  and also picked up everything I brought with me that would be used at the reception. 

 

As my items from home such as champagne glasses, cake and knife cutter, extra maracas, etc she packed everything back in the bag I gave her.  At the end of the night all I had to do was grab the bag and I was ready to go. 

 

I sent Odette a picture of everything I wanted my wedding reception to be and see was able to send me prices and options for everything very quickly. 

 

If you have any questions please feel free to ask.  I don't get back on here much anymore but I will try and respond.  I really can't think of anything that we weren't happy with or would not do again.

 

We were choosing between Martoca and Las Caletas and I am soo happy I chose Martoca.  I did go visit las caletas when we were there so we I do know what it looks like in person.

We got married at Martoca on Sunday, April 29th and let me just say - this venue is BEAUTIFUL. Absolutely stunning!!! Our wedding group stayed at Dreams Villamagna (which was fabulous for us, absolutely perfect for a wedding group), but we didn't want to get married at a resort because we wanted a more private event. This was a GORGEOUS venue on a much more private beach, and every single one of our guests had a fabulous time. If we had to do it all over again, we would go straight back to Martoca!!

 

If you're looking for a fun, romantic, affordable, and beautiful place to get married... this is it! A few pictures are below, I tried to pick ones that showed off the location. (I have a few more on a previous post: http://www.bestdestinationwedding.com/t/1528/list-of-photographers-in-the-pv-area/60#post_1769386) A big hats off to Kelley Kahrhoff, aka the world's best wedding planner, Karla Benitez, our unbelievable photographer, Dan Dimov @ Macmex Photography and Videography for our crazy cool video, and Jimmy and everyone at Martoca!! Every single moment was of our week in Puerto Vallarta perfect. :o)

The beautiful view from the property, where my girls and I took our pictures before the guests arrived.

The bridal suite, with a nice frosty A/C unit. :o)

Martoca has beautiful flowers and gardens, I didn't get any bridal portraits done in my hometown so I did them here.

We opted to get married on the beach instead of on the lawn, which I am REALLY happy that we did in retrospect.

MAKE SURE YOU TAKE PICTURES ON THE BEACH!! They turn out beautifully!!

There is a really nice garden area that our families took pictures at (below), but just a word of advice: a lot of small palm leaves had fallen on the grass and could be seen in our photos, especially ones of the entire family that we printed out and sent to them. It took me ten times as long to photoshop the leaves off of the grass as it would have taken one of us to go, "Hey, let's pick up these 15 unsightly leaves before we take pictures." This is the unedited version of one of the photos, and you can see one of the leaves behind my Dad's leg.

Table setup. What a view!!

The white lounge furniture that was available during our cocktail hour was the best. Also, a few guests took breaks over there because it was BEHIND the speakers and was quieter if they needed a break from the mts mts mts mts...

We opted to do firedancers, who did a performance on the dancefloor.

www.martoca.com is a private venue and not a hotel. We have hotels all around us though.... Just FYI for some brides who may be curious. Gracias:)
