Hi Everyone! I am so excited to announce a whole new series here on the blog. I had thought of doing something like this before but just didn't know how to go about it and now, I've asked some of my favorite wedding planners/coordinators to participate in this Guest Post Series! They'll talk about what they do, what their favorite moments of weddings are, and what advice and tips they can offer you so that your wedding day runs smoothly!
It's a Q&A and I would love nothing more than for the conversation to keep going! If you have any additional questions for our Guest, please comment below the post!
Our first Guest Post is from Wendy Ruelas with Doca Eventos. Wendy and I met through weddings however, we've become friends. I love to work with her as she creates great events with an eye for detail and of course, is just super sweet.

I started at a local hotel coordinating weddings for their guests. I worked for them for 3 years and have now moved onto coordinating events through Doca Eventos.

Don't choose a day during rainy season (which is June - August).
What are your top 3 destinations for weddings?
Tell us one of your best memories from a wedding (could be funny or a tearjerker moment)
It was a couple from Vegas and the speeches were the most memorable because all of the guests said incredible words for the couple. It was an intimate wedding, everyone was crying and enjoyed the time together. A very emotional wedding.
In your opinion, why should brides have a destination wedding?
I believe having a destination wedding is a special time spent with all of your guests and you can have an intimate wedding as well as enjoy what Puerto Vallarta has to offer.

Creating the wedding day mood - which makes it so interesting and fun!
