Let the stunning natural surroundings and majestic ocean be witnesses to your nuptials.
After you have exchanged your vows, you can ride off into the sunset on a white elephant on the magical carousel that spins around showcasing 360° views of the beautiful Banderas Bay. This will provide a fabulous photo opportunity for the bride and groom and everyone in your wedding party.
For couples who wish to get married at the Cultural Forum, for your dinner reception, you can choose from any of the additional venues at TierraLuna, or you can have your reception on the beach surrounded by the deep blue waters of the Pacific or infuse your celebration with a touch of elegance in the Red Room.
