Wow!  I’m literally teary eyed!  Beautiful!  Those pictures are what I’m praying for my own Destination Wedding.  An authentic, special experience that will be remembered long after it’s over.  You looked beautiful and your guests looked like they were having great fun.  Congrats and thanks for easing my fears a bit.

@SerenaSF: no we aren’t getting married there.  Fiance was firm on it.  He said mexico worked for the resort beach wedding which I didnt want.  Figures.  Tongue out

Instead, were going to vegas.

Gorgeous!!! Looooove your pics! You look stunning and I must say I loooove your dress as our our similar in styles. I love the parade through the streets – so awesome!

I just returned from my Destination Wedding in Cabo and 100% agree with you – soooo completely worth it. We spent 4 days with friends and family in a gorgeous villa and I loved every minute of it. I only wish I could do it all over again. I’ll need to write up a post with vendor recommendations, pics…etc.

Best wishes to you!

awww! So nice to hear! I’m getting married next year in San Luis Potosi….just a hop and a skip away from where you got married. Sometimes I doubt if we’re doing the right thing but there’s not going back…church and venue and everything is paid for. So nice to hear someone felt like their Destination Wedding was worth it!

I worry people will feel akward or inconvinienced…even though I’ve put no pressure on anyone and I really don’t expect that many to come. We invited about 80 people from the states but we know maybe 12-20 will come because we don’t come from a circle of family and friends who have extra money laying around…which is fine because most of my family lives in San Luis Potosi anyway…so there will be a party no matter what.

Your pics are gorgeous!!! Congrats!!

YOUR pics are amazing !! 

Great colors! 

@fresitachulita:

That was my fear of making it hard for my guest to make my wedding but our destination wedding was great !  We had about 40 people come and the ones who did were just like my husband and I: Open minded, Adventurous and Travel lovers! We had a couple of activities for the guest- a welcome dinner, a rehearsal dinner, a segway tour, and finally the wedding! I really wanted to treat the guest who made the trek right and since the numbers were low we could do it !! 

I was a little uptight about the flights getting in but once everyone was on the ground it all came together and EVERYONE had a BLAST !! They said it was the best/funnest wedding they had ever been too. 

Most of family was going to have to travel anyway. 

Good Luck to you !
