The couple stayed at a small hotel called El Mono Feliz, owned by a couple also from Holland. It was really nice because they spoke the same language and were able to connect easily because they came from the same culture. The hotel owners took great pride in adding many special details and elements to the day for Marije and Michiel.
The couple opted for a morning wedding to avoid the greater risks of rain. Marije was getting ready in the hotel owners wooden cabin while Michiel patiently waited to see his bride for the first time.
