Venue Spotlight: La Gran Villa at Villa Amor

Working in such a small geographical area as Sayulita, it's always exciting when a new service, product, or location becomes available to offer our clients.  Villa Amor's new management team has opened the door to select planners in the area to book weddings at the hotel, and graciously invited us to stay for a night at the newly renovated, absolutely gorgeous Gran Villa, their honeymoon suite and wedding venue (yes, this job does have its share of perks).  The Gran Villa holds a very special place in our hearts, as it's where Gabbi & I were married in May 2004, so I love the idea of hosting a wedding there and getting to be in that space on the other side of the altar, and it goes without saying I was super thrilled at the opportunity to spend another night in this ultimate paradise, reminiscing about our own beautiful wedding day.  I managed to work the one-night getaway into Gabbi's birthday weekend as a special surprise for him, and we had a perfect Saturday evening and Sunday morning relaxing and soaking in the breathtaking vistas, with died-and-gone-to-heaven massages from our dear friend (and the best ever masseuse) Lisa Brewer, followed by a romantic dinner served in the villa from Villa Amor's O Restaurant.  The next morning my dad and Maximo joined us for some sun and pool fun before checkout.  We couldn't resist posing for a picture in the same spot where we said our vows in 7+ years ago.

The Gran Villa really is an incomparable location - the view is just jaw-drop gorgeous, and while the lack of railing makes it a little tricky for younger (or drunker) guests, it is uninterrupted, beautiful perfection - a feast for the eyes and the soul.  The villa itself is top-of-the-line, no-detail-spared luxury: 3 bedroom suites, a jacuzzi and infinity pool, state-of-the-art kitchen with espresso machine, rockin' sound system and media room, marble floors, and all the beautiful details (moroccan doors & lamps, beautiful custom wood furniture, under-lit marble floors)  that are the hallmark of Villa Amor's individualized beauty.

I am especially loving this beautiful, lush Gran Villa wedding by Sarah Yates Photography / Sitting In A Tree Events (the lovely Bride's own event planning company).  Can't wait to do one of our own in this phenomenal space!

¡¡¡Muchissimas Gracias a todos en Villa Amor por una noche super linda, y la oportunidad a trabajar juntos en este lugar hermoso!!!
