Married in Mexico

Bonnie Mineo and Drew Scott of Aspen tied the knot in Mexico on Friday, April 27. The couple decided to have a destination wedding last fall when a friend recommended Dreams Resort & Spa in Puerto Vallarta as an option. After spending several days in November on a recon mission at the resort, they agreed Mexico would be the perfect setting for their wedding. After giving it their stamp of approval, Bonnie sent out “save the date” cards to friends and family members, setting the plans in motion.

Despite Sardy Field’s temporary closure this spring, which made the trek to Mexico a little more cumbersome, 20 friends from the Aspen area drove to Denver International Airport to fly south. In addition to the Roaring Fork Valley contingent, friends and family from Bonnie’s native Atlanta and Drew’s hometown of Richmond, Va., were in attendance.

It was apparent that a highlight for the low-key bride (and even more relaxed groom) was just being on vacation with friends and family. The all-inclusive resort was the prime spot for waterskiing and parasailing in the ocean, playing volleyball on the beach, and even taking water aerobics classes at noon in the main pool (all of which the Mineo-Scott wedding party participated in).

On Friday evening, guests strolled out of their hotel rooms and onto the playa for the seaside wedding ceremony. As Bonnie and Drew exchanged vows beside the Bahia de Banderas, guests soaked up rays from the setting sun. A barefoot reception ensued where all enjoyed cocktails and hors d’oeuvres followed by dinner and dancing. After spending the week in Mexico, the Scotts honeymooned in Spain.
