Congratulations to Angela Colon & Angel Rivera!
Where: Now Larimar, Punta Cana, Dominican Republic
When: June 1st, 2013
Angela and Angel were visiting the Alamo in Texas to spend time with Angel’s family. During their visit, the couple decided to take a boat ride tour of the Riverwalk to view the newly hung Christmas decorations which light up San Antonio. During the tour, the boat reached the “love rock” where many couples got engaged and married. As the tour guide told the story of the love rock to the boat riders, he stated “Angel, take it over.” To Angela’s surprise, Angel got down on one knee and proposed to Angela. Angela was so surprised she admits to not remembering if she said yes! The crowd on the boat cheered and congratulated the couple the rest of the boat ride. After the exciting moment, the end of the boat ride was all about Angela showing her new ring to the other boat riders who were happy to be in such a special event.
Hello VIP Team!
After all was said and done, having a destination wedding was the best decision we ever made. Our family and friends had such an amazing time and are already planning the next all-inclusive event. Having a beach wedding was one of the most precious experiences of my life; walking barefoot in the sand with the ocean in your view, there’s never even the smallest urge to look back. Having a destination was amazing for us because we discovered two major things: 1. We filtered out the people that will always be there for us and 2. We now have a special vacation place to visit whenever we want to get away.
The Now Larimar resort was absolutely heaven on earth. The people there were so welcoming, helpful and fun that I found it hard to leave. When we arrived, we were greeted by a host and champagne at every turn. The food was delicious and filling, and the drinks never stopped filling themselves! After being there for a week, my husband (being a native Spanish speaker) felt relaxed and comfortable there, before a week’s time we may have gotten to know the names of about 30% of their staff which is quite impressive when you consider just how many people work there. It was all a dream come true for us about how we wanted our wedding and family vacation to be. The property was immaculate, the surrounding area was up and coming but doesn’t take away from the beauty of the Island.
The wonderful team at VIP Vacations, Inc. truly helped us survive the disappointments and heartaches one can achieve when planning and implementing a destination wedding. We found so much comfort in the staff as whenever we felt discouraged, we’d call the office and would immediately feel restored. Words cannot express how grateful we are for having the opportunity to have worked with them all. We worried about nothing when it came to the trip specifics and other little details. We also found the VIP Wedding blogs to be a helpful tool in our planning and accounting for those little nuisances. Thank you for all that you do!
