Destination weddings offer couples a rare escape from their worlds into a zone where nothing outside of their united world exists. To help create that atmosphere, Velas Resorts offers the “Just the Two of Us” package for couples considering a Mexican excursion to end their engagement and begin their marriage.

Owned by founder and Velas Resorts president Eduardo Vela Ruiz and his brother, Velas Resorts vice president Juan Vela, Velas Resorts have locations in Riviera Maya, Puerto Vallarta and Riviera Nayarit. The locations – known for their accommodations, spas, restaurants and more - rank well within the AAA Diamond-hotel rating system and have earned the Five Diamond Award. The features included in the “Just the Two of Us” wedding package contain several elements of Velas Resorts’ best qualities.

The “Just the Two of Us” wedding package is available at Velas Resorts’ four locations. From the ceremony site to the flowers and cake, the package takes care of the majority of the wedding planning.

Couples will wed in a private symbolic ceremony on a white sand beach before either opting for a romantic tasting on the beach or dinner at the AAA Five Diamond Cocina de Autor signature restaurant at Grand Velas Riviera Maya (the dining option is also available for the other resorts’ restaurants). Before returning to their real world, the newlyweds will enjoy a couple’s massage and private transportation back to the airport.

Starting at $2,000, the “Just the Two of Us” wedding package is available at all Velas Resorts and offers 2 guests:

  • Symbolic ceremony
  • Complimentary bouquet and boutonniere made of fresh tropical flowers
  • One-Tier Velas Collection Wedding Cake
  • Wedding toast with sparkling wine
  • One-way private transportation
  • Romantic beach dinner for two
  • Photoshoot with in-house vendor
  • Couple’s massage
