The (brief) story of how you met/fell in love:
We have been together and in love for 14 years. We already have an established life together including two beautiful daughters. We felt it was time to finally make it official!
The destination wedding decision: something you’ve always wanted or came to love?
We both knew we wanted a beach wedding. It was an easy decision to pick Mazatlan because it was affordable, family friendly and easy for family and friends to get to.

El Cid offered both inclusive and European plan packages to accommodate all of our guests. They had four resorts to choose from and were all located in a great area.

I did a lot of things myself like jewelry and decorations. It was nice to put my own personal touch into the things for our wedding.
The most memorable moment was when….
Most memorable moment was surprising our guests with Mexican mustaches to put on for one of our wedding pictures. We had such a blast taking these pictures!
