Eric and Laura were married in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico seven years to the day after their first date. The couple, who met in college, chose a destination wedding for several reasons and Puerto Vallarta for one in particular.

"We decided on Puerto Vallarta because of the villa, Casa Valerie," Eric says. "We knew we wanted to get married at a villa, in Hawaii, Mexico or some tropical place but once we found Casa Valerie online, Laurie knew it was the place. We found many great villas, but all were very expensive. Casa Valerie was priced a bit more reasonably and was just as stunning as any other villa we had seen. We liked the idea of having some of our family and friends stay with us at the villa and also having it serve as kind of a social gathering point for all of our guests."

Laura, who works as a retail division training manager for Wynn Las Vegas, traveled to Puerto Vallarta ten years prior; Eric had never visited the city. The pair booked the villa site unseen. Eric, a photographer, was hesitant to be so trusting considering he knew how photos could be altered, but thankfully the couple was not disappointed in their choice.

As it turned out the villa was just as stunning as the pictures seen online if not more, Laura says. We were very happy. It came with a chef, a waiter and a maid staff allowing us to be very lazy during our entire stay. The pair invited 100 guests and had 55 attend.
