Now this is how you do a Destination wedding. Warm weather, sandy beaches, palm trees and I’m sure a few fruity cocktails. More importantly, there’s not a lick of snow insight. Yep, Puerto Vallarta is indeed heaven and this wedding of one really adorable couple is basking in all this locale has to offer. But enough about musings of the tropical climate kind, (forgive me it’s COLD in Boston). When Michelle Turner is manning the photography helm, we just know there’s a pretty parade about to commence. See the full dreamy affair right here and don’t forget to hit that play button on the wedding video by Eduardo Reyes. It will have you hopping on a plane for warmer climates stat.
From Edurdo of Eduardo Reyes… April and Glenn are from Georgia and over the holidays they traveled to Puerto Vallarta to get married at the beautiful Playa Fiesta Hotel. This adorable couple’s wedding was small and intimate.
Glenn and April’s brother, Adam, were college roommates and best friends during their freshman year of college. April was visiting her brother during her junior year of college and instantly fell in love with Glenn! Glenn asked April’s brother if he could talk to his sister and Adam said yes, but later said that Glenn could only “talk” to his sister and not “date” her! They are still best friends, and Adam was Glenn’s best man.
April and Glenn’s flowers, created by FlorArt Vallarta, consisted primarily of succulents mixed with white, peach, and pink ranunculus. The green of the succulents accented the bridal bouquet, the groom’s boutonniere, the cake topper, the centerpieces, and even the favors! In addition to the fact that succulents make April think of Mexico in general, she was inspired to include succulents in her wedding design when she saw them featured on a style blog.
