Ashley and Jenna were married February 14th, 2014 at El Dorado Royale in Riviera Maya, Mexico.
What made you decide on a Valentine’s Day wedding in Mexico?
We wanted our day to be special. We knew we were going to be there over that holiday and thought what could be a better Valentine’s Day than getting married on the beach!
I know you mentioned your room at El Dorado Royale was stocked with fun extras to make your stay special. What was your favorite surprise in the room?
Our favorite surprise was after the ceremony and reception we went to our room and there was a beautiful “just married” sash on the door. The inside was decorated with a heart shaped towel and rose petals along with an assortment of fruits and chocolates.
What the best part of the wedding and/or reception? Was there a moment that neither of you will ever forget?
The best part of the reception was at the end. We had ten minutes left of dancing and our reception bar was attached to one of the pools. Suddenly my brother, one of our groomsmen, picked up the microphone and said he had an important announcement to make. We were all waiting anxiously when he yelled, “Cannonball!” And jumped into the pool! To everyone’s surprise more than half of the guests including ourselves jumped into the pool. Something we will never forget!
If you had to give one piece of advice to a couple planning a destination wedding, what would it be?
Take time to enjoy it!!!! It goes by fast, but our wedding coordinator made it very easy to relax and not stress about the little things. We truly appreciate all the people who helped make our day possible.
