235 days ago my family and friends embarked on a trip just to be part of my Happily Ever After! My husband and I were married at EL CID LA CEIBA in Cozumel, Mexico after being on a fabulous cruise. We have nothing but happy memories and Roberto Barriento was the reason for all of this success. Roberto was our wedding coordinator from EL Cid. I always dreamed of a cruise wedding, being able to sail with family and friends for a week and getting married with a beautiful view of clear skies and blue water. I got all of that and more!

When I began my wedding search I originally planned on hiring Carnival cruise to complete all of the details of my wedding but after getting their prices and seeing their packages I was not pleased. I then began to do an online search of venues that were near the cruise port in Cozumel. I called and emailed a few places but I never got the answers I truly was looking for until I received an email back from Roberto at EL CID LA CEIBA. He was so willing to please, so proactive and sweet. He quickly answered all of my questions, sent over a quote, discussed options and even went as far as taking pictures of table clothes, seating arrangements and ceremony set up. He called me every time I asked him to and he turned pictures into a reality.

I could not have asked for a more perfect day. Our cruise ship arrived at 10am and we quickly walked over to El Cid la Ceiba. I was greeted by all of the staff that were anxiously awaiting for our arrival. I was given a room for my wedding party and I to get ready in. We did not use their hair and makeup team however they do have one available if needed. Due to time restraints we came prepared from the cruise ship. My guests arrived about an hour later and they were quickly given some cocktails and brunch while they waited for the ceremony to begin.

We were married on February 19th at 12pm under a gazebo over the water. Roberto made sure that all of the decorations met my color scheme with extra flower arrangements in both the ceremony and reception space. Roberto arranged the pastor, mariachi, photographer, videographer and DJ. I did not have to worry about speaking to other contractors, arranging payments or time. Roberto took care of everything. My package included open bar, full buffet, desserts and a wedding cake.

Our reception was held in the semi-outdoor restaurant that also had an amazing view of the cruise port, blue skies and clear waters. We danced for over four hours. Our DJ provided us music that we enjoyed and he had a list of our first dance song, father daughter dance and much more that Roberto provided him after speaking to me about it over the phone. I can not stress enough how delicious our food was. Over the phone we went over every entrée choice, salads, desserts, special diets, and even as far as condiments used. TRES LECHE was the flavor of our cake and it was amazing. I highly recommend it. The cake was beautiful and we added an extra touch with a single flower as a cake topper.

I gave out tequila shot glasses as party favors and Roberto arranged to get us mini size tequila bottles for our guests. After drinking, laughing, eating and dancing we took a quick taxi ride back to the cruise port. Roberto arranged some vans to pick us up so that we would not be late to board the ship.

Thank you Roberto and all of the EL CID LA CEIBA STAFF for such a memorable experience. See you soon as I plan on going back and enjoying their beautiful hotel, pool and suites.
