What happens when you combine a private island, a rose gold champagne gun and a massage overlooking the ocean? Jessica & Bryan’s wedding weekend in Puerto Vallarta. Photographer Brogen Jessup was along for the romantic ride and recounts the action-packed weekend which included a private snorkeling catamaran, a beach front rehearsal dinner and margaritas around the clock.

The festivities and partying were equally matched with breathtaking decor. The bride and groom seem to have thought of every little detail from the rose petals at their beach ceremony to the blue palette of bridesmaid’s dresses. Hop on board and take a look into this lively and gorgeous Mexican wedding weekend of a lifetime. Salud!

Not only is New Zealand home to some of the most stunning scenery on the planet, but its rugged tracks and wild weather thrill visitors with surprises around every corner. We recently spotted this gorgeous engagement photo shoot by Maz of Black Bird Tale and we're struck by the vivid imagery and the story behind the couple’s two-day road trip with their photographer.

From snow-capped mountains to the wild golden summer grasses in the valley, Mount Cook shines supreme in this photo series. Straight from the photographer, here's the scoop on all things Queenstown and photo worthy.

Valle de Guadalupe has been coming up again and again in travel magazines and blogs that follow all things travel trends. With its abundance of great wineries, delicious and foodie-centric restaurants, gorgeous scenery, charming hotels and ease to travel to, this northwest corner of our beloved Mexico may just be the next hot spot.

Nestled among the uncharted territory, there’s a venue-in-the-making from the crew behind One Bunk (this one dubbed One Bunk Valle). As the venue is not yet complete, we were lucky to get in on a little of the action by scoring this photo shoot from the talented team at Luna Wild. Sit back and enjoy the inspo as we chat with the group of designers behind this styled elopement.

Rancho Valencia Resort & Spa

Rancho Valencia, Valencia Circle, Rancho Santa Fe, CA, United States


When you have a new team member, you hope you’re not only going to be great co-workers but possibly friends. How do you know if this new teammate is going to be a fit not only for the company but IRL? For starters, you could look at their wedding. When The Venue Report team found out our newest confidante was married mere months ago at one of our favorite San Diego venues, Rancho Valencia, our eyes lit up with excitement. Turns out, she’s a gal after our own hearts by styling her wedding full of cacti, lots of texture and the prettiest wash of neutrals you’ve ever seen. 

We chatted with Alana about the day, her inspiration and her relationship that shaped this ultimate Southern California wedding. Guests sipped on local craft beer, had breakfast for dessert by way of gourmet donuts and took in the sun going down over the Pacific Ocean while they celebrated Alana and Brennan’s love. See how our newest work bestie got married in magical style, collaborated with some of our favorite event creatives and has one heckuva story to go along with it.
