I met Yadira and Alfonso at My PerFAKE wedding at Cherry Valley Country Club in Skillman, NJ. We sat and talked about their dream honeymoon and exchanged information. We spoke on the phone shortly after the event, when I learned more about the couple. She informed me that although she doesn't swim, a beachfront setting was exactly what she had envisioned! And Alfonso wanted the opportunity to do some snorkeling. They both wanted a location with an active nightlife. Together, we decided on the Cancun area and soon narrowed down the choices to a few resorts. One month later, Yadira decided on Hideaway at Royalton, and it was perfect! I heard from them after they returned from their trip and things settled down. They said, "Thanks to you we had an amazing honeymoon. Hope to work with you again!"
Love those moments!
Not long ago, Karisma branded themselves as offering a Gourmet Inclusive Experience. The gourmet experience is a great addition to the all-inclusive market and really sets Karisma apart from many of the others.
And now, Karisma is making another big announcement --
Azul Hotels by Karisma is introducing the NICKELODEON Experience!
After dining on delicacies and drinking in the finest luxuries that Azul Hotels have to offer, your family can enjoy the ultimate Nickelodeon honor, SLIME! Get doused with gallons of the green goo right next to the beautiful blue waters of the Riviera Maya. Sliming includes up to 4 people with a private photographer, so you won't miss a minute and you will have fabulous photos to commemorate the moment!
But the fun does not stop there! Kids are granted access to the Azulitos Playhouse with themed activities, character appearances and trained professionals ready to play. If your kids love Dora the Explorer, SpongeBob or Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles - they are in for a real treat! You can even schedule a private meet and greet for high fives, family photos and autographs!
And since Karisma is all about the food, you can elevate your family's dining experience with a visit to one of the themed restaurants. Whether it's ice cream scoops with SpongeBob or a slice of pizza with the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, the restaurants bring you and your family a flavor of some of your favorite Nickelodeon shows.
Who is your child's favorite Nickelodeon character? (or should I ask, who is yours?!)
I was at a bridal show this weekend, hosted by Everything Bridal held at Reid Castle...
Reid Castle is located on the campus of Manhattanville College in Purchase, NY. It is easily accessible from the highway and not too far from Rockland County, where I live. As I drove up, I could see the castle up on a hill and it looked just like a fairytale. There were limousines out front that added to the majestic charm. The first floor has several rooms, each with unique detailing and amazing architecture. The ceilings are truly magnificent. Unfortunately, I was unable to enjoy the terraces due to unseasonable weather (snow!) for April but they are large and boast amazing views. The venue caters only one party at a time which allows the wedding couple to have all the attention of the day.
The catering is done by Elena Sassone of Chartwells catering. The the food served during the show was in abundance and was delicious! As a vendor at a bridal show, I don't always have the opportunity to taste the food, but since there was so much of it, I was happy that after the show, there was plenty left over for me to try a few things. I had turkey, pasta, cheese and crackers, and everything was delicious! Elena Sassone of Chartwells does a fabulous job with presentation and taste, and the staff was so friendly! There was something for everyone to eat (with all my allergies, there are many foods I don't eat and I was able to find several selections to choose from).
I met some amazing engaged couples who were planning their weddings at Reid Castle. I feel in love with it instantly and highly recommend it for anyone looking for a fairytale wedding in Westchester.
