From the Bride…Kevin and I knew we wanted a destination wedding before we were even engaged. We visited Dreams in Puerto Vallarta on a last minute mini vacation back in 2008 and absolutely fell in love with the area’s pristine beaches, lush jungles and vibrant culture. That trip was the beginning of the couple we are today and has always held a special place in our hearts. Both Southern Californian natives, we knew we had to say our vows with the ocean as our backdrop, and knowing we would be paying for our wedding ourselves, affordable Puerto Vallarta became the perfect choice. After scouring the internet, we found the lovely and talented ladies of The Dazzling Details, their services and the venue were booked before Kevin even popped the question! (Yes, I am a planner and booking before the New Year meant additional savings, ha!)

Our wedding day was nothing short of spectacular! Over 80 friends and family made the trip to Dreams over President’s Day Weekend 2012 to celebrate with us. The Dazzling Details used every detail and element I had described or suggested in our emails (even ordering a coral chevron fabric I had fallen in love with months ahead of time) and turned the affair into a beautiful mix of classic elegance and modern flair. From the ghost chairs and paper lantern lit tent, to the handmade programs and maracas, no detail was left unnoticed. They even managed to incorporate Kevin’s favorite pastime – hockey – in a classy way as a backdrop for the table numbers.

Most importantly, our friends and family had the time of their lives and are still reminiscing about the amazing time they had and how it was the most incredible wedding they had ever been to. Rachel and Rico, our photographers from Studio Castillero and Tom and Mindy, our videographers from Aqua Vivus captured every moment beautifully. It was a day we will cherish forever and can now continue to relive through their work. We wish we could come back every year and repeat the same party complete with fireworks!

Destination Wedding in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico

Right about now, as my house lies snuggled in a foot of snow, Mexico is sounding pretty amazing. It’s a land where sunshine is a mainstay and seaside nuptials are a part of the landscape. And local darlings, The Dazzling Details, know just how to whip those nuptials into shape. The result is a neutral palette and oceanfront cocktailing all captured by Clary Pfeiffer.

From the Bride… Brad and I knew very early on we wanted a destination wedding. We both fell in love with Puerto Vallarta and knew it was the perfect location for our wedding. Puerto Vallarta is a city filled with remnants of classic architecture, cobblestone streets and breathtaking views from the hills that surround the bay. It is absolutely beautiful and completely charming.

I wanted to juxtapose the rustic charm of Puerto Vallarta and our venue, Villa Celeste, with chic, simple details and a soft color palette. Brad had only one request when planning the wedding: a ridiculously fun reception. We hired The Dazzling Details {wedding planners extraordinaire!} to bring our vision to life.

When the day arrived, I felt so relaxed and happy and I attribute this to The Dazzling Details. I knew they would take care of everything and all we had to do was have fun and live in the moment.

Our wedding day was steaming hot, but our guests made the best of it jumping in the pool between limbo contests, dance offs and visits to the late night churro stand and taco cart. Everyone ended up in bathing suits and cover ups by the end of the night, which wasn’t what I had envisioned, but it was a perfect ending to our crazy reception!

From the Bride… I have always wanted to get married in my hometown of Santa Barbara but after my husband Matt and I started talking about our wedding we knew we wanted to have a destination wedding. We loved the idea of having an intimate group of our family and closest friends with us on vacation celebrating our love. Next we needed to decide on our wedding location. We decided against more remote locations like Fiji and decided on Mexico. Matt let me decide on the town! I searched online for weeks and came across The Dazzling Details. After seeing their weddings I knew I wanted them to plan my wedding so we decided on Puerto Vallarta.

My favorite moment of the day was standing bare foot in the sand exchanging our handwritten vows. I have never had so many emotions come over me. We both thought we would be able to hold it together but we both had tears running down our cheeks by the end of our vows.

I thought having a destination wedding would be ten times more stressful but it was the exact opposite. The Dazzling Details made the wedding process extremely easy and fun! If you are thinking of about having a destination wedding… do it! You won’t regret it!
