This couple, who met while working in New York City, decided to take the celebration to Mexico for their wedding. Maria and Allen’s destination ceremony and reception took advantage of the incredible weather and held both portions outdoors, with beautiful ocean views and glamorous decor. But the real show stopper is that unique Berta Bridal lace dress Maria wore. Gorgeous!
The Ceremony Allen and I are both cooks and we met in NYC working in a restaurant. We decided to get married in Mexico because that is where I am from, and there is no better place to do it than beautiful Acapulco. We got married on May 17, one of the hottest days ever. Our ceremony was a traditional Catholic ceremony, it was long but absolutely beautiful and funny, because Allen said his vows in Spanish. We exchanged rings, Mexican coins, and were joined by a large traditional rosary as in every Mexican wedding. The sky that day was gorgeous and we had an ocean view that made it absolutely perfect.
The Reception Our reception was in the same place as our ceremony, Casa Helecho, a beautiful villa on the mountains with a spectacular ocean view. We had 200 guests and we danced the entire night until 5 am! It was the best night of our lives.
Maria’s Dress Search I tried around 20 dresses, but the one I chose was the second one I tried and I couldn’t get it out of my mind, I was comparing every single dress to that one. I chose it because it was everything I wanted and it fit my body perfectly.
How Maria Felt in Her Wedding Dress Beautiful, Sexy, Confident
Why Maria Decided to Sell Her Wedding Dress I don’t want this gorgeous dress to sit in my closet forever, I’d rather someone to have the opportunity to wear a dress like this for a more affordable price, I am sure they will love it as much as I did.
