Q & A With Bride Johnna: Fiesta Americana Condesa

Bride: Johnna

Groom: George

Resort: Fiesta Americana Condesa

Agent: Audrey

 
What made you decide on having a destination wedding?
We wanted to have our wedding, reception and honeymoon in one location. We also wanted all of our guests to have a really good time. Plus, I have always dreamed of a beach wedding. The beach is the only place I could imagine getting married. My husband had never been to a beach resort and he was blown away. It was our first time in an all-inclusive resort and it was fantastic.
 
What made you decide on the destination/resort/venue?
I picked Mexico. My travel agent, Audrey Kupovics, helped me narrow it down to Cancun. She picked Fiesta Americana Condesa, Cancun, Mexico, which was an excellent pick. The first day I got there I called her and told her, “Audrey, you were right.” 
 
 
What was the biggest difficulty in planning your destination wedding?
Not being able to really see the venue. I could have flown down to Mexico the year before, but we’re on a tight budget.
 
What was the highlight of the experience and what was the biggest surprise?
The ocean front resort and ocean front room were like being in paradise. Seeing the sunrise over the ocean every morning was breath-taking. The biggest surprise was the staff-to-guest ratio. We had several servers at our reception and we had a small wedding. The party favors of balloons and glow sticks were huge hits.  
 
 
How well was the resort and your Onsite Wedding Coordinator to work with?
Lucia was fantastic. She was very responsive and so pleasant to work with. We adored her and our wedding photographer, Adrian.
 

If your best friend were planning a destination wedding what would your advice be to her?

Start early. I needed the entire year to get everything done. The little details make all the difference. It also helped our tight budget to pay over time.
 
 
Was there anything that you would change looking back?
No. It was our perfect, dream wedding.
 
Is there anything else you want to add about the resort or your booking agent?
I give them both an A-plus.
