Kobrie and Brian – Wedded in Paradise

Posted on 09 Jul, 2010 in the Articles about Portofino Beach Resort|Portofino Weddings Category. 2 Comments

Dear Portofino Friends, here we have posted the story from Kobrie and Brian which they have shared with the Belize Tourism Board. Last month they celebrated their first wedding anniversary, CONGRATS Kobrie and Brain! We hope that you will keep on Honeymooning for many more years! – Lots of love from your Portofino Family!

kobrie_brian_2When my husband and I first started looking for places to have a destination wedding, we had a few requirements. A day of travel that didn’t actually take a full day’s time: hopefully. Warm tropical waters, and a sandy beach: a must. Thatched roofs: a priority. A plethora of activities: ABSOLUTELY!! After a lengthy search, we found Belize; it had it all, and then some.

The Portofino Beach resort in Belize was our dream come true for both our wedding and our honeymoon. Beach front, a fantastic pool, beautiful accommodations, an on site restaurant, and, yes, thatched roofs. As a small boutique resort, Portofino offers personal service and truly works with you to create your perfect wedding. Over the first several days we were there, the staff made sure our every request was met. They assisted us in planning day trips for scuba diving and snorkeling on the beautiful reef, cave tubing, ziplining, and tours of the Mayan ruins. They created a special menu for our rehearsal dinner complete with one-of-a-kind center pieces in our wedding colors, designed a beautiful bridal bouquet, and, quite frankly, took my breath away with the floral arrangements designed to be the walkway and alter. Portofino took care of everything! We even had a one-of-a-kind, made on-site wedding cake. After the ceremony, the staff even thought to provide us with a wonderful surprise, by decorating our suite with an assortment of fresh flowers. There was nothing they didn’t think of, or make happen; it was as if the word “no” was not part of their vocabulary.

They helped me surprise my husband on his birthday, with an in suite candle light dinner, and went above and beyond to make us feel special. Over our two weeks there, the staff began to feel like our extended family; people to share a drink and a story with. We have nothing but fond memories and warm feelings for both Belize, and the Portofino Beach Resort. It is a trip we, and our families, still talk about, and one we all hope to repeat in the future.

Did Portofino Beach Resort and Belize meet our expectations and more? “You better Belize it!”
