Many people visit Belize yearly and we don’t always get to hear about everyone’s wonderful experience. Whether its coming to celebrate a birthday, honeymoon, wedding or any other event, Belize has always been an ideal place to make your dreams come true. Here’s one unforgettable experience that was shared with us about a breathtaking resort in Belize.
Our unBELIZEable Destination Wedding at Las Terrazas Resort
I’ve always dreamed of a tropical destination wedding; a vacation with friends and family, all celebrating my union of love with clear blue postcard perfect water in the background. The excitement had my fiancé and I debating what our destination would be. Costa Rica? Mexico? Bahamas? The Caribbean offers so many options, some more obvious than others but none of them stuck out as the one. Until one day, Blair, my fiancé said, “What about Belize?” to which I replied “Where’s Belize!?”. I quickly found out and immediately regretted never paying attention to such a beautiful country.
Swimming with nurse sharks, sea turtles, exploring ancient Maya sites, and experiencing a unique Central America and Caribbean culture was more than enough motivation for us to book our tickets and head to an unforgettable spring break in April 2017. It was decided then that there was no better place to live out our destination wedding dreams than on Ambergris Caye, Belize.
The Magnificent Team
At Las Terrazas Resort we met our wedding coordinator match in Carolyn. Not only did we feel at home, but we found every detail executed by her and the Las Terrazas Resort team to be nothing short of perfection. I almost cried when I saw the décor exactly how I had imagined it. I wondered how it would all come together – how could they have kept track of the endless details of a vision that was planned hundreds of miles away.
Seeing our friends and family arrive on the private boat was one of my favorite moments. They were served delicious rum punch, cold towels, and a huge hug from the newlyweds-to-be! It goes without saying, that they were immediately impressed with where we chose to get married.
A Breathtaking Resort and an Unforgettable Experience
With beautifully kept grounds and amenities, Las Terrazas Resort was the perfect location for our group, who spent their days lounging on the beach, chilling in the pool, and sipping on delicious watermelon cocktails. Even though we created a fun itinerary for our guests to get the most out of Ambergris Caye, they preferred to enjoy all that Las Terrazas Resort offered – the pool, paddleboards, delicious food, cocktails, bikes, and a beautiful beach.
The wedding day came too quickly. Getting ready with my girls over mimosas and laughs would have lasted forever if it was up to me. I couldn’t have imagined a more lavish background for “pre-party” photos with my best girls.
Our friends and family had us laughing and crying over their coconut toasts. Yes, toasts with coconuts! Our guests still talk about it. Who needs champagne when you can hold up a fresh coconut with rum punch? We danced the night away under the stars with Mojitos and cold Belikin beers in hand, then cooled off with a jump in the pool and a delicious late-night taco bar.
I couldn’t have asked for a better wedding. Las Terrazas Resort made everything unique to us. Like the song we danced to at our reception by Hall and Oats, they made our dreams come true.
