Have you ever thought of stepping out of convention to hold a destination wedding? If you don’t already know, Puerto Peñasco (aka Rocky Point) has become a premiere dream wedding destination for couples from across northwestern Mexico as well as the southwestern part of the U.S.
Saying “I do” is one of the most important steps of your life. Lifelong decisions begin from that moment on. If you’re not sure how to plan for that special day, don’t worry, we’ve got top spots and wedding planners to help you make your wedding one of the most amazing experiences of your life!
One of the options most recommended by our event planners is to hold your gathering at one of the outstanding resorts in Rocky Point. All of these venues provide spectacular views of the Sea of Cortez, and their imposing structures showcase the contrast, providing a frame for wonderful wedding photos. In addition, some of these resorts provide the option of holding your event outdoors in addition to ballrooms. A plus to choosing a resort is the comfort for your guests in having the event right where they’ll be staying. This way you can toast the night away without a care in the world.
This port also offers several event options across the city. One of these, which is known for its spaciousness and variety of decor options is the Convention Center. This is an excellent choice, and a blank slate that lets you play around in a thousand ways. This venue is recommended for events with a large number of guests.
Among the most popular spots, which has launched Rocky Point both nationally and internationally in the realm of romance, is of course the beach! Our beaches showcase stunning sunsets and are always the perfect spot for weddings, from the simplest to the most elegant. The possibilities are endless! The sea breeze, lull of the waves, an inspirational sun, and even the ice cream vendor will bear witness to your special day.
If you’d like to hold your wedding on the beach, yet from the comfort of a private sea side home, Las Conchas is the ideal pick! This beach is more secluded, due to the tides, and offers an extensive option of homes to choose from for your exclusive event. You and your guests will feel right at home.
Are you a traditional bride? For Catholic ceremonies, the beautiful Sagrado Corazón de Jesús church is a wonderful recommendation. Known as the “Old Port church”, as it is located in the malecón, this is one of Rocky Point’s iconic churches, welcoming thousands of weddings over the decades. Its spectacular structure and temple, filled with antique decoration, will make you fall in love all over again.
Couples are looking more and more for exotic and original locations. Such is the case for weddings in the desert, with the moon and stars adorning the evening along with soft lights that envelope the entire romantic bohemian setting. If this is the wedding you dream of, Rocky Point offers endless nooks to make your dream a reality.
Another spot that broadens romance options is the Schuk Toak Visitors Center and Museum. This is an ideal location for adventurous couples wishing to hold their ceremony with the backdrop of lava pathways, desert flora, and an incredible surrounding landscape. Many wedding planners dream about holding a ceremony at this spot. Would you dare to be the first bride to do so?
Finally, yet equally important, how about an intimate outdoor wedding with the dune pathway setting a spectacular stage? Located at the Schuk Toak Visitors Center museum at the Pinacate Biosphere Reserve, this is an incredible spot that will certainly impress both you and your guests. We can’t think of a more incredible setting for a “boho” style wedding!
