Once the home of an American movie director, Las Caletas, now owned by Vallarta Adventures, is truly a paradise on earth with its crystal waters, secluded beaches, and bright green forests. Accessible only by boat, this breathtaking Mexican hideaway was the perfect location for Stephani and Jim’s intimate destination wedding. Orchids were the star flowers of the celebration, the blossoms themselves and their vibrant colors of green and purple used throughout the event. Bride Stephanie looked positively stunning in her wedding dress, a sleek one shoulder gown whose floral detailing could not have been more suited to the exotic surroundings of Las Caletas. Held on the beach, the ceremony was a special time for all in attendance, guests smiling as they watched bride and groom exchange vows beneath a bamboo arbor adorned with flowing white and brown fabric. Fine dining and exciting live entertainment followed at the reception, after which the newlyweds were sent off to their honeymoon in a shower of flower petals.
