We got engaged in the Arboretum, a park in Seattle while walking our pups.
I always like to ask my couples why they chose to have a destination wedding– Meredith said: Joe and I both love Puerto Vallarta and have always talked about a destination wedding. We liked the idea of spending quality time with our guests in paradise. La Mansion had endless possibilities for decor and was right on the beach. I also liked the idea of getting married in a garden type atmosphere vs. the beach, so that villa was perfect.
My favorite thing to ask is which part of the day stood out in the couple’s mind as the most memorable part of the day. Meredith said: My favorite part of the day was dinner. Looking at the insanely beautiful decor, all of our amazing friends and family, and being right on the water. Joe and I kept looking at each other saying, “Can you believe this is OUR wedding?” It was the time where we really soaked in how lucky we are and how perfect the day was, and that we were officially Mr. & Mrs. Rivas. Such an overwhelming moment.
