The Planning Experience
A vacation and wedding all in one-can't beat that!" — Chelle & David always knew they wanted a small and intimate wedding, but when their at-home wedding guest list continued to grow, they decided jetting off to a remote location with 60 of their closest friends was more ideal. So, they started researching and looking at locations, asking friends and family their opinions, and ultimately decided on their dream wedding resort in Mexico: Royalton Riviera Cancun Resort & Spa. This all-inclusive resort in Riviera Maya had the best overall package for what they were looking for; from the location and amenities to the kid-friendly activities and secluded adults-only section. To them, all-inclusive was hard to beat!
When it came to personalizing the big day, Chelle & David brought some things from home, such as paper flowers to mix into her bouquet, and personal photos for their beach reception tables. With all the little details coming from home, the wedding had a nice homey touch.
Their reception was filled with many memorable moments, and when the groom's father started busting a move on the dance floor, the party really started! When asked to describe their destination wedding experience in three words? "Best. Decision. Ever." is what the couple said!
