The Story of Us

Jenny and Matt met on Valentine’s Day in 2010 through mutual friends. Their first kiss was on St. Patrick’s Day, and they liked it so much that they continued to kiss each other on non-minor holidays. Eventually, Matt lured Jenny away from Manhattan and into the wilds of Brooklyn, where they now reside with their best friend Stella, a five-year-old Rottweiler mix. After three months of hanging shelves and buying grown-up furniture, they hosted a bacon- and bourbon-themed party for Matt’s birthday, which was transformed into an engagement party after Matt proposed in front of many of their closest friends. (She said yes, hence this website.)

Location, location, location:

We’re thrilled to be getting married on a beautiful private beach called Las Caletas in Puerto Vallarta, and we’re grateful for your consideration in making the journey. For us, the biggest appeal of getting married in Puerto Vallarta is relaxing with our friends and family in a central location for several days. With our loved ones scattered across the globe, we never seem to spend enough time with the people we hold dearest. We’d be honored if you could join us not just for our special day, but for a little vacation, too.

About the ceremony:

Las Caletas is a private beach accessible only by boat, so landlubbers should pack some Dramamine.
– A catamaran yacht will leave from the downtown marina in the late afternoon, and you’ll enjoy an open bar during the 45 minute ride to the ceremony site.
– Weather during the month of July is very hot and ranges around 85-95 F
– Caletas is a natural setting: not only is the wedding ceremony on the beach, but the rest of the venue features earthen steps and generally uneven footing. Leave your high heels at the hotel.
– While children are welcome to stay with you at the Buenaventura Hotel, we unfortunately can’t have them at the ceremony. We can help arrange for a babysitter for the day of the ceremony.
– Attire: elegant beach chic

As night falls, Las Caletas is transformed into a magical paradise, the ultimate backdrop for our exclusive event, – an amazing voyage that will transport you to a mystical and spiritual land that time forgot. The adventure begins with a scenic ocean cruise across Banderas Bay to the isolated cove of Las Caletas.

Once on shore, your senses will be ignited taste and aromas of freshly grilled steak, chicken and fish that will lure you towards your private beachside table bathed in the soft glow of candles.
