About Nikki & John

As with all great love stories, ours started in the basement of a dive bar. Nikki and John’s eyes met from across the room at Bernie’s Bagels. She dressed as ‘Boo’ from Monster’s Inc. and him, a Barbarian - a total cliché. They would spend the week getting to know each other as they pursued the glory of Greek Week champions. In the following years, the two would become close friends. They would return home every summer and would always pick up right where they left off in the Fall. After two years of date parties, OSU games, and ‘Beat The Clocks’, John and Nikki started dating in August 2013 and never looked back.


Nikki and John spent the next 5 years in Grandview as they supported each other in their life aspirations. Nikki pursued a career in nursing as John worked toward his goal of becoming a Columbus Firefighter. In the meantime, they raised two terrible dogs, went on countless adventures, and eventually bought a home in Pataskala. Their relationship moved at a blistering speed and eight short years later, John proposed to Nikki in Las Vegas on December 20th, 2021.


We have both been incredibly blessed for the last nine years for not only each other but for each of you reading this. We couldn’t ask for a better group of people and would like to thank every single one of you for being a part of our story. The support, love, and laughs that we have all shared together have played such an invaluable role in our relationship. We are so excited to celebrate our love surrounded by the greatest people we know. We’ll see you in Mexico!

The Big Day!

Nikki & John are very much looking forward to spending time with you in Mexico.

Flight info


We're happy to help you with your flights. We'll send out flight options to anyone who requests it on their RSVP after the deposit deadline for the group has passed. 


At Bliss Honeymoons we have access to both the same published fares that you see online, as well as contracted rates.


If you wish to fly with Southwest, Frontier, or Spirit you must book directly through the airline.


Please note that we do not offer basic economy fares, as this fare does not allow for seat assignments or any future travel credits. Passengers with basic economy tickets are the last to board and the first to get bumped.


Parties booking their flights independently are responsible for ensuring their flights match their hotel check-in and check-out dates. In order to ensure your transfers, please click here to send your flight confirmation to us no less than 45 days before departure here. 


Baggage Fees:  Baggage fees are not included and must be paid directly to the airline. Please refer to the airline’s website for baggage fees. If you have a TSA precheck number or frequent flyer number, you will add it to your reservation directly through the airline’s website. 


Please note! It’s not uncommon for your first and middle name to appear as one long name on the airline’s website. If this happens, don’t panic! Just check-in as you normally would.

Airport Transfers

Round trip transportation from the airport is included in the package. Once you have cleared customs and collected your bags, please proceed outside to the shuttle area. Please do not stop inside the terminal and accept assistance from another party. The parties inside the airport are timeshare salespeople.

Your transfers are shared, non-stop transfers. If you prefer private transfers, they are available for $160.00, round trip.

Once you have exited the terminal look for the Lomas Rep. They will be wearing a blue shirt, and white pants, and holding a sign for Lomas.

Please note: Car seats are required just as they are at home. They are $40.00 round trip. Please let us know when you make your reservation if you need a car seat.

Travel Insurance and cancellation policy

If you’re attending a destination wedding, chances are you’re booking several months in advance. While we’re sure you have every intention of making the trip, life can be unpredictable. The months between the deposit and your anticipated date of travel could bring a job change, illness, or other circumstances that could prevent you from traveling. Purchasing travel insurance is a smart investment that will protect you from financial loss.  

And because most medical insurance policies do not offer coverage outside the United States, we do not recommend traveling without insurance. Our trip insurance covers trip delay, trip cancellation, some medical coverage, lost luggage, and more. Our insurance allows you to cancel for any covered reason and receive a full refund, even on non-refundable published airfare. Uncovered reasons are covered up to 75%. Review the policy for more details here. 


If you book your air independently, we do offer a policy that will cover both your land and air. Please ask us for more info.


Insurance is just $99.00 per person and $59.00 per person for children under 12.



The cost of the trip is not refundable. We urge you to purchase trip insurance to protect you from a financial loss.


Please note! Once final payment has been made, there are no refunds issued for a reduction in the number of nights, room category, or the number of people in your party. If you have trip insurance, we can file a claim for any reductions. This may incur a change fee.


Penalties apply to all bookings. However, if you have travel insurance you can recoup these losses by filing a claim with the travel insurance.


Please note! The cost of insurance is not refundable for any reason.


Still think you don't need insurance? Here are 14 reasons why you do


We understand that there’s a lot of uncertainty about travel right now. 

Please note that these are the policies that are in place as of May 2, 2022. These rules could change between now and your departure date. Any updates will be posted here. 


Q. Is a COVID test required to enter Mexico?

A. At this time, there is no test required. You do not have to take a COVID test or complete a health form to enter Mexico. 


Q. Am I required to take a test to return to the United States? 

A. Effective January June 12, 2022, there is no longer a requirement to test before returning to the United States. 


Q. What happens if there is a travel ban?

A. In the event of a travel ban, we would move the date of the wedding. We will make every effort to ensure that everyone in the group is able to keep the same room and number of nights at the current group rate. 


Q. Does the travel insurance cover us if we decide to cancel due to fear of COVID?

A. Our travel insurance is a ” cancel for any reason” policy. Covered reasons are covered at 100%. Uncovered reasons are covered at 75%. Canceling due to fear of COVID is no different than canceling for fear of spiders, and falls under the provision of the uncovered reasons. There is a link to the policy in the insurance section of the wedding site. Please review the policy for covered and uncovered reasons.


Q. If there is a travel ban, aren’t the hotels and airlines required to give us a full refund?

No, they are not required to offer a refund for anything that falls under force majeure such as government shutdowns, war, pandemics, or acts of God. We strongly encourage you to purchase trip insurance to protect yourself from a financial loss.
