My husband and I had been engaged for a year and a half, and were in the process of looking at various venues for our wedding. Despite the fact that we had looked at several very close to home, in my heart, I knew that I always wanted to get married on the beach in Mexico.
Since my husband, then fiancé, had booked a trip to Puerto Vallarta for my birthday, I thought it might be the perfect place to surprise him with a wedding.
I purchased my dress, shoes, etc:, unbeknownst to him, and then a couple of days before we were about to leave, told him to make sure he packed his tux. It wasn’t until that Saturday morning, when we were on our way, that he inquired why Ihad asked him to pack his tux. My response was, “Well, I thought we could see if we could get married while we are there.”
He was extremely excited also, so first thing Monday morning, we went down to the wedding coordinator’s office to ask if it was even possible to get married that following Saturday.
I will never forget, explaining to Julia what we wanted to do and asking her if she thought she could pull together a wedding for that coming Saturday. She thought for a second, shrugged her shoulders and said very confidently, Yes, I can do that!
From that point forward, she helped us coordinate the photographer, florist, minister, videographer, music and the gazebo. We even had our engagement photos done beforehand , as well as, prepared everything to stay in keeping with the beautiful Mexican wedding traditions.
I have to say, it was absolutely beautiful and perfect!!
Thank you so much Julia for helping us to create an amazing experience that we will cherish for the rest of our lives!!
