When Christina and Paul got engaged, the bride knew exactly where she wanted to tie the knot: San Jose del Cabo, Mexico. Having vacationed throughout Mexico growing up, she and her family were tremendous fans of the area and thought it the perfect place for her and Paul to hold their destination wedding. Their chosen venue – Cabo Azul Resort.

It was the resort’s open-air chapel which sold the couple on their chosen venue. Luckily, the planning process went smoothly and the couple didn’t run into any hiccups. The couple also helped to ensure the travel process went smoothly for their guests. “We were very explicit on our website so there was little room for error,” recalls the bride. “Listing what to bring, travel docs, what to expect upon arrival, shuttles to the hotel and all the events…we made ourselves very available for any questions in advance…”

Come W-day, everything went off without a hitch. Christina and Paul chose to keep their decorations relatively simple in order to accent, but not take away, from Mexico’s natural beauty. It was these surroundings which the couple and their guests enjoyed for four days leading up to the wedding. There’s no question Christina and Paul feel they made the right decision in having a destination wedding in Mexico, “[We] live in expensive LA, so it was actually a little less expensive in Mexico, allowing us to have more events like a BBQ, bridal lunch, brunch and more.”

For other couples considering a destination wedding, Christina has some wise words of advice, “Remember, it’s about you! So go where you want to have your wedding, but be kind to those people who may not be able to come. Think about what is more important to you – having it where you want or having it more convenient for others. Both are valid points, but whatever you choose, be thrilled with your choice and make sure you have no regrets!”
