Our Wedding


Our wedding was amazing. We were actually married at the Kendall County Courthouse before we had a destination ceremony in Riviera Maya...which was gorgeous. We got married at the Dreams Puerta Aventuras, and they did EVERYTHING for us. I relaxed by the ocean until about 5 minutes before my hair appointment. 2 hours later we were celebrating our marriage. It was perfect and easy. We then held a reception back home for our family and friends. It too was perfect. Everything fell into place and all of our vendors took excellent care of us.

Michele makes the most delicious cake pops and cake balls. I had her make some for my wedding party while they prepared for the wedding and if they wanted a break during the wedding. They were delicious and gorgeous.

Tony was very professional and knew exactly what needed to be done. I didn't have a ton of contact with him because he knew exactly what he was doing. Everything was done via e-mail, but he was able to answer my questions on the phone if I wanted to talk with him. He did a great job at the wedding.

The booth itself was great :) My family and friends loved it very much. I received my photobook that evening, and my digital file of pictures arrived the next day in my e-mail. It was a fun part of the reception and guests loved that they could take a photo home with them that evening.

Sarah did a great job with our pictures. We paid by the hour rather than purchase a package. We had a reception only wedding. She took beautiful pictures and did exactly what I wanted. We received our pictures on a disk within two weeks. They were beautiful and we had several choices for each pose.

Chris and his crew were amazing. They worked side by side with my photographer and took some amazing shots. They showed us a few while we were filming. Their finished projects bring tears to my eyes everytime. I haven't seen our finished product yet, but I can't wait. Watch their samples on their website...they are AMAZING!

My normal hairstylists was unavailable on my wedding day. She recommended Shantel's. They were very reasonable, and my hair turned out gorgeous. I loved it. They did everyone's hair for the wedding and they all turned out great.

Linda recommended our destination wedding location, and she was absolutely correct. Dreams Puerta Aventura was the most amazing place to hold a destination wedding. The gazebo was perfect and the planner was efficient. We will be definitely going back! Thanks Linda!!!!

Deb was unbelievable. I was a nervous wreck everytime we went in there to plan. She was calm and cool at all times and knew exactly what she was doing. The evening was just as perfect. Everything was taken care of. The cake was delicious and every said the food was great. They have a beautiful fountain in the back that lights up at night...perfect for pictures. The tables were perfect. We went with the basic set up, but they offer a ton of options as well. They really know what they are doing over there, and we highly recommend it.
