How hard is it to plan a wedding when you don't live in the area?
20% of our couples plan weddings with us from other states, we have the perfect virtual tour on our website where you can walk through our entire space and plan out every detail virtually. Typically our couples fly in for a romantic getaway to have their Food Tasting, Mixology Night, and Wedding Planning Meeting with us all together. We love that when our couples leave us they are officially in their magical wedding bubble!
I have two ☺
*Find a moment or two to escape with just your love during your wedding, everything goes by so fast and it is those in those private moments where you remember what your wedding day really means. We usually bring our couples to the vapor room on the rooftop at the start of cocktail hour where we bring in all of our cocktail hour food and custom signature cocktails so that they can really take in the moment together properly!
*There are going to be a lot of opinions floating around during your wedding planning process, try to focus on what the two of you want more than anything! This is your day, and all that really matters is that your wedding represents who the two of you are and what you love. Sometimes when you really take in all the outside noise, the stress of the planning overshadows the love of it!
What is one question that all couples should ask on venue tours?
Do you have a preferred professionals list? We plan and execute so many events each year so we get to see the best of the best. We also work directly with your vendors so we know who’s fun to work with, who’s popular, who’s flexible etc.
I looove to keep the party going with an after party so the Fiesta Station is my favorite. It’s a combination of our signature mini margaritas, mini tacos, taquitos and all the guacamole you could ask for.
Focus on your partner. The planning portion is done and while things don’t always 100% go according to plan the most important thing is you’re marrying the love of your life. If you can focus on that and put your trust into the professionals you’ve hired- you’re going to have a gorgeous event.
