I hope that this month’s version of The Latest finds you all well and safe and healthy!
Puerto Rico is absolutely gorgeous these days … clear Caribbean water, beautiful sunsets, hot summer weather, and the occasional cooling afternoon thunderstorm. We’ve had a blast getting to know all our happy couples over the past two months and are so grateful for their trust in us, especially these days. As for all the rest, such as global pandemics or island political messes, shall we just focus a bit on Puerto Rico being absolutely gorgeous?! As well as our beautiful weddings and happy couples, of course!
This month in The Latest, we’re delighted to share the story of Holly & Tim’s wedding from a few weeks ago. Whether you are one of our couples who learns about The Tainos for the first time in our ceremonies, or if your Boricua blood includes Taino DNA, read on to learn a bit more about this amazing civilization. Learn about a valued member of the PRDW family, Javo Grant, including his insider’s recommendations. And, finally, we also include an explanation about a topic we often hear: yes, you can absolutely have your ceremony in Puerto Rico without all the paperwork and legalities.
On that note, in some good news, the Puerto Rican government has implemented a fully online system for marriage certificates and marriage licenses. We’ve streamlined our processes so that couples only need to send us everything in advance, and we take care of it from there. No painful trips to the government offices while on vacation! It’s never been easier to be legally married in Puerto Rico.
So, enjoy a bit of beauty direct to you from Puerto Rico. And let us know how we can help with your own Puerto Rico destination wedding, elopement, or vow renewal!
Have a wonderful day!

Javo’s Local Tips
- Drive through the center of the island. Visit Jayuya and get some coffee at Casa Pueblo in Adjuntas. Maybe check out Toro Negro State Forest.
- If you like street art, check out Santurce, especially on a Thursday night.
- Ponce, on the south coast, offers a lot of beautiful colonial architecture and modern art sightseeing. The Ponce Museum of Art has a vast collection of classic art. El Rastro in Ponce has wonderful international cuisine and excellent cocktails.
