In July of 2009, my wife and I had the amazing experience of getting married in Zihuatanejo, Mexico at the lovely La Quinta Troppo. (We had been to La Quinta Troppo back in 2006 and were left with such a deep impression of the place that we decided that this little Bed and Breakfast was the perfect setting to capture this special occasion.) Consequently, it ended up being an amazing vacation that brought both of our families and our friends closer together.
We did not hire a wedding coordinator, but we put our trust in the hotel manager, Erica. We were able to plan and coordinate our entire wedding via email.
On our BIG day, our hostess wowed everyone with many wedding details, including her selection of flowers, a wedding arch for the beach ceremony and a serenading mariachi band. La Quinta Troppo catered the reception dinner, and an open bar was made available to us with a bartender that served well into the wee hours of the morning. Cocktails and appetizers were served by the cobalt blue pool, while dinner was served on a terrace over looking the moonlit bay. After the reception dinner, we surprised our family and friends with some entertainment. At Erica’s suggestion, we hired a touring dance group that specialized in traditional regional dances from all over Mexico. They wore elaborately sewn and brilliantly colored traditional attire and performed several dances that revolved around the theme of the evening, “tying the knot and LOVE.”
Lastly, we requested Erica to arrange a wedding cake for after the dance performance. For $50 USD, we received a tres leches cake that served enough for 35+ people—adorned with matching fresh cut flowers. This simple yet mouth watering, elegant cake was the most amazing cake my wife and I ever tasted, which we still crave to this day.
We would like to thank Erica and the entire staff at La Quinta Troppo for there generous hospitality and for making our wedding one that we will not only remember and cherish forever, but one that our family and friends will look back fondly.
Thank you so much for the wonderful memories.
A Happy Seattle Couple
