NATASHA & JORDAN: WEDDINGS AT THE SANDOS CARACOL ECO RESORT
“I was cleaning up in the kitchen when Jordan [my partner] came in with our son, Sawyer. As they walked in, I hear Jordan speaking for Sawyer: ‘Mommy, Daddy has a question for you…’ And there was the ring, perfectly resting around our son’s thumb. Some people may not think of it as very romantic, but to me it was the perfect way to pop the question.”
Natasha and Jordan’s simple yet love-filled proposal set the perfect tone for their destination wedding. The Sandos Caracol Eco Resort was the perfect location. Aside from their stunning backdrop (just take a look at their incredible wedding photos!) the Sandos Caracol Eco Resort possesses a warm and friendly ambiance for both the couple and their guests.
Natasha and Jordan reminisced about their experience. Here’s what they had to say about their big day:
On their decision to have a destination wedding
We’ve always considered having a destination wedding, but always had our doubts. We felt having a wedding back home would be the safest choice. I [Natasha] helped plan my sister’s wedding in 2015. After being fully involved in the process, I felt that having a traditional wedding would be WAY too much work, especially with raising two young kids. We still wanted to have a wedding to celebrate with friends and family and ultimately decided on hosting a destination wedding. We were beyond thrilled with our decision. It was honestly the most easiest way to plan a wedding. I would recommend a destination wedding to anyone I know.
On choosing their hotel and venue
We actually chose Sandos Caracol Eco Resort not only because of the beautiful wedding photo locations but because of how many water slides there were! We figured our one son would love it, but I think the adults actually had more fun with them! It is a fantastic family hotel.
We loved how their was so much for us to do without having to step foot outside the resort! From the cenotes, animal parks, trails to walk along, to all of the activities, our schedules were packed from day to night with adventure. As for the wedding itself, we took advantage of the hotel spa to do hair for the bridal party, while I used their make-up services. I blown away with the wonderful job they did!
On their advice for a successful Destination Wedding
Any couple looking entertaining the concept of having a destination wedding - this is a MUST to look into.It was the best decision we ever chose and we are so happy with how everything turned out! We had unbelievable weather. As with most weddings, there are times where it gets a little frustrating communicating to a wedding team abroad. Rest assured they do respond back and it’s a matter of embracing the process. We flew our family photographer to Mexico with us and wouldn't change that for the world. For couples who are particular in how their photos are done, we highly recommend looking into doing this route. Lastly, we couldn’t do it without our Destination Wedding Specialist, Ashley. She was on our team from right from the get-go. Thank you Ashley for everything!
We’re thrilled about the experience that Natasha and Jordan had with this fantastic resort - their vision for a picture-perfect destination wedding perfectly aligned with all of the elements offered at the Sandos Caracol Eco Resort. Without a doubt, it was a happy ending for all (and we LOVE happy endings!).
