Why celebrate your love with us

  • Love is universal

    A religious ceremony in an intimate beachside chapel. A same-sex union under a charming beachfront gazebo. A culturally themed reception serenaded by a mariachi band… Love knows no bounds, and neither do our destination wedding packages.

    That’s because we’ve tied the knot with some of the most picturesque resorts in the most idyllic destinations in the South to create a wedding designed just for you. Grand or understated. Classic or whimsical. Exotic or simple. Distinctly you.

  • Renewing wedding vows


    Relive the romance of your wedding — and the sparkle of your honeymoon — by renewing your vows at a tropical destination. Follow the rose-petal path to our dreamy partner resorts, whose romance packages will even shame Casanova. And once you retie the knot on a fabled whitesand beach, in a lavish garden or atop a cliff overlooking the sea, you’ll want to do it over and over again. You know, for love.

  • Honeymoon

    Sunsets too bewitching for words. Waters that compete with the ocean for bluest hue. Towering cliffs that seem to tickle the sky. Nature has already carved a lovers’ paradise in our Sun destinations. And our partner resorts have summoned the sizzle of a thousand love stories to craft sweltering honeymoon packages. Champagne breakfast in bed. Candlelit seaside dinners. Rose petal-strewn baths. Not a bad way to start life as Mr. and Mrs.

  • DO

    Pick a dress that withstands the heat

    Your dream satin dress is a showstopper, but wear it under the Mexican sun and you’re sure to melt. Choose a climate friendly gown in a lightweight fabric like chiffon, georgette or silk organza.

    Pick a location that's easily accessible

    You have always dreamed of tying the knot on a mountaintop, but it’s a climb and many of your guests might not be up for the journey. If your heart is set on a hard-to-reach locale, arrange transportation for guests to and from your venue.

    Show your gratitude

    Your guests are coming a long way to celebrate with you, so acknowledge their efforts by adding a heartfelt welcome note to their room. On the day of, tell each guest just how much their presence means to you.

    Consider hiring a local wedding planner

    Planning a destination wedding is a major undertaking, so having a local wedding planner on board is a stress reliever. They’ll not only help with personalization, but will have insider information on the best vendors in the area. Most hotels offer the service of a wedding coordinator on site.

  • DON'T

    Skip the SPF

    Getting married under the sun’s glowing rays puts you at risk for burning, and that is something nobody wants on their wedding day (or honeymoon!). Be sure to pack and wear sunscreen on your wedding day (pack a spray formula so you can easily reapply) and be a thoughtful host and have SPF on hand for your guests too.

    Skimp on the research

    While it’s easy to get swept up in the romance of having your wedding in paradise, overlooking the hard facts could result in disaster. Check everything from your destination’s exchange rate to its marriage requirements before putting down a deposit.

    Forget to live in the moment!

    Wherever you and your partner choose to get married, remember you’re celebrating your love for one another, and this is what your wedding is all about! Let go of your worries so you can fully appreciate every second of your day and your chosen destination!

  • Shauna ♥ Dustin

    It was the wedding Shauna had dreamt about. Nay, even the wedding in her dreams would be jealous of this. Strolling down the golden-sand aisle to swaying palms, the soundtrack of waves crashing onto shore and the setting sun soaking the jade waters in a luminous glow. And let’s not forget the man waiting for her at the end of that aisle, her beloved Dustin. A smile dawned on her face as she remembered how they got here…

  • The couple met two years ago through friends at a party at Dustin’s house. And while their memory is impeccable(ish) when recalling what the other one wore that night, a smidge of fog sets in when recounting their first kiss.

  • It may not have been love at first sight, but love didn’t dawdle either. Just one month after dating, Dustin and Shauna jetted off to Puerto Vallarta for a romantic escape at Now Amber. And somewhere between hidden coves and strolls on the pristine beach, they fell in love.

  • So when it came time to planning their wedding, the choice was obvious. On March 27, 2016, Shauna and Dustin said “I do” in front of 30 family members and friends at Now Amber Puerto Vallarta under a draped arch that framed the sea like a window into paradise, just as the weary sun dipped lazily into the sparkling waters. It was the wedding of their dreams, indeed.

  • Now Amber Puerto Vallarta, Mexico
