BLOG-MarToca Beach Garden Grand Opening!

Recommended Posts

Well, here it is - the photos from the MarToca Beach Garden Grand Opening in Bucerias! When Jimmy (the owner and all-around cool guy!) asked us to participate we were hesitant - mostly because we are a small "mom and pop" (or rather, brother/sister-in-law!) operation and don't have oodles of money to spend on such fun opportunities! But Jimmy found a way to help us with costs and we had such a great time - and such an amazing venue!

 

 

Then Memo from Charme (who, as most of you know who follow the blog!) agreed to decorate a cake for us and to donate yummy, nummy pastries to accent the decor space and then Jimmy asked us to decorate a Margarita area just for him AND, then, Michael Amici - an awesome new photographer in-town and all-around incredible person (also he's very good at stringing orchids!!) - said he would also take some pictures for us (all pictures donated by him!! thank you Michael!) AND our flower vendor, Juan Carlos from GDL said he would donate some of the flowers .... well, anyway, kismet was in the air!

 

 

Mishka Designs & Charme....

So, this was "our" area ... Omar and I wanted something that would represent "us" as well as showcase Memo's incredible pastries ... I wanted something beachy, yet elegant - to really accentuate the MarToca space but in a graceful, airy sortof way ... so we decided on white dendrobium orchids, pink cymbidium orchids and strung crystals, along with the crystal chandelier we had originally designed for Britt but just done a little differently would be amazing up-top. Then we had our entranceway with some larger crystals and strung orchids to greet guests as they entered. We really did want to showcase Memo's work, so we placed pretty pink chiffon cocktail tables, accentuated with black ribbon in the middle of the area and round hand-painted batik pillows and our logo in swarovski crystals with a white lounge for guests to sit back and enjoy the amazing sunset! And, of course, you have to have floating lanterns in that amazing pool!

 

If I was designing this for a wedding, this would probably be the dance/cake area and we would add a few more candles to really give it a great romantic glow.

MarToca Margaritaville....

 

Jimmy had seen the rose balls we did for Greg & Panida's wedding as well as the lamps - so he knew he wanted those for sure - the rest he left to us! It took me a bit to figure out the angle I was going to take this little area but, once I saw this amazing grey chiffon, I knew! We did 10 rose balls (that's close to 1,000 roses!) with crystals and 20 hand-painted glass candles as well as accent pillows for this very chic upscale Margaritaville ... Just one of those spaces that looked amazing during the day and gave you a cozy, warm feel at night!

The People....

 

It's rare we ever have time to take photos at an event - but this was a fun event, not really a working event, so we were able to get a few pictures in .... this next photo is Memo and his wife Lucy (charme) - AND this picture was taken by me, not by any pro.

We were fortunate enough to have Nikki & Roland, our fun, sweet couple whose December 5th wedding we were lucky enough to coordinate/design, attend the cocktail!

Fun Fun aside, MarToca really is an amazing place, if you want something that's beachside, beautiful and amazing but weren't really looking to have your event at a villa! Two thumbs up!

Martoca is beautiful! My fiance and I were just there and were really surprised at the cool space. I agree that Jimmy is a great guy - super nice and helpful. This location is definitely near the top of our list right now and hopefully we will be able to make our decision in the next couple weeks.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
