Epoca (Puerto Vallarta Restaurant)

Location: Epoca Restaurant, Puerto Vallarta
Couples from: Colorado, Chicago

I’ve had the pleasure of both eating and working (which fortunately included some eating!) at Epoca Restaurant which is ideally located between the Malecon and Los Muertos beach in “Old Town” Puerto Vallarta, Mexico.

The first time was in April 2007 when I photographed Kara and Jason’s wedding. Kara was laid back (in terms of wanting a casual wedding), high energy and fun. Jason seemed to be a perfect complement for her and also radiated warmth and happiness. I was really touched when they asked me to join them for dinner (despite only being hired for limited coverage) and I’ll always remember the pumpkin soup! It turns out that Kara also works with weddings and events doing coordination and floral design. Her business is cleverly named Pick Me and has a cute web address Love This Day.

My next job at Epoca was for a rehearsal dinner for Katy and Geoff. Rehearsal dinners are a great opportunity for more casual photos and a good warm-up for the wedding day shots. Everyone seems more at ease for the wedding day photos if I am there to photograph them beforehand. I’ll always remember Katy’s dress; it was so cute and stylish and could easily have been worn at a casual wedding.

I’m a vegetarian so I always appreciate when restaurants have vegetarian dishes on their menu. I’ve mentioned the pumpkin soup which I think is a specialty item, and I’ve also enjoyed the Spinach and Jicama salad, the Panela Crocantes, and the Chile Relleno.

I’d also highly recommend this spot for sunset drinks either at the bar or with your feet in the sand right on the beach.

Here’s a little slideshow with some highlights of events Epoca:
