Planning a wedding can be a bit daunting, especially if you’re planning it from thousands of miles away. That’s why couple Chelsea and Tim turned to WOW Specialist and Travel Agent Shelli Nornes at Shelli’s Travel to help plan the perfect destination wedding. After chatting with several different travel agents, they knew Shelli’s experience and personality was the perfect match to meet their needs. While the process seemed a bit overwhelming at first, Shelli was flexible and accommodating. She helped by arranging travel and transportation for their 95 guests, and answered any questions the couple and their group had.
Chelsea and Tim’s ceremony took place on the Breeze Terrace, and although a tropical storm traveled through at the time of their reception, the onsite wedding coordinators were able to bring the celebration indoors.
“I feel confident in saying our dream destination wedding wouldn’t have been possible without our WOW Specialist. And we couldn’t have asked for more from the Hard Rock Hotel staff. Thank you for helping make our dream wedding come true!”
Ashley and Jonathan Mascagni knew their wedding at the all-inclusive Hard Rock Hotel Riviera Maya was going to be epic, but they had no idea it’d reach the level of Rock Star Status. The couple said “I Do” this past October, and it just so happened to be the same weekend that Bret Michaels was in town to officially unveil the Bret Michaels Rock Star Suite, a completely custom luxury experience featuring a personal fitness center; private sky terrace complete with hot tub and fire pit; and one-of-a-kind Camaro SS pool table.
After meeting the couple and learning they’d be tying the knot the same night he was scheduled to perform at Heaven Lounge, the rock star invited the two to a private performance after their celebration.
