My fianc© 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 elopement. 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.
